Well first have you charged your battery back up, if so then try to by pass the ingintion switch by just connecting the two main post of the colenoid with a piece or wire, this creates a direct wire basically from your battery to your starter, if still no luck you will need a new starter located more to the drivers side close to right under the pedels on the bottom side of the truck.

the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

SOURCE: my ford f150 wont start, battery is good, have a

On the firewall is the starter motor relay. There are 2 large battery sized cables to it, and 1 smaller ( 16 AWG ) wire that is orange or orange with a stripe ( forget the color, want to say white or tan ).

When you turn the key to the start position, check the smaller gauge wire for +12 V. The case should be ground. If you do not get +12 on the orange wire, try starting the truck in neutral ( apply the parking brake, chock the wheel, etc normal safety precautions ). Test for +12 V at the small wire. This is the output of the DTR ( Digital Transmission Range ) sensor or in common terms the Neutral switch. The start position on the ign switch runs through the DTR to the starter motor relay coil.
If you have a stick, the DTR is replaced by the Clutch Pedal Position Switch ( clutch must be pushed in to start ).
If you have power to this ( at the times the truck won't start ) next is to check the both battery cable ends to see if they are corroded and making intermittent contact ( not probable but possible ).

When i turn the key nothing happens, it wont even turn over. starter, alternator, battery, fuel injectors and wiring, coil pack are all new. When i went to autozone they said starter solenoid. do i need...


When you go to the parts store they will give you the correct solenoid. Make sure it matches the one you take off. You're lucky because Ford solenoids are not part of the started. Also, to verify that, you can start the truck by by-passing the starter solenoid and engage the starter directly using a jumper cable.

Detailed instructions to by pass the starter solenoid is located here.

Explorer (93 xlt)wont start


Alternator just charges your battery and wont have any direct link to a starter problem. It is very important that starter wires be very snug when replacing the starter. especially the big wires. However it is the little wire that activates the main relay. I don't remember if this car has a remote solenoid or not.
If it has a remote solenoid then the main positive wire from the battery will go to the solenoid mounted on the fire wall or fender and then one big wire will go down to the starter. The start solenoid will have the battery wires hooked to it but also a little wire from the ignition switch. If you dont hear a click then either the ignition switch is bad or the solenoid is bad. Or perhaps the contact from the ignition at the solenoid is bad.
