Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
Thought it was the connection to the solenoid. If I tapped it, or if I jumped across the 2 solenoid poles the car would start. Was very erratic, it would start then it wouldn't. Now nothing I do works. The battery is good, but sounds dead (often with a clicking noise like bad solenoid.) Won't turn starter even if I jump across solenoid poles. Could it be a bad solenoid and or starter? If I buy a new starter, will it come with solenoid mounted? Car has 3.0 duratec engine. Thanks for any help.
All I had to do on a sable was to replace the belt but look at the battery there should be a wire coming from the battery going to another solenoid mounted under the hood and then going down to the starter get a 12 volt tester and see if you have power going to this solenoid cause it could be dead on one end and not going down to the starter
