    on the fender well next to the battery. this problem happens even when the small wire from the switch is disconnected

  • steve corgiat Jan 12, 2013

    also, the solenoid stays closed after the battery cable is removed. a sharp blow with a rubber mallet will cause it to release. new r/b motorcraft starter and new motorcraft solenoid. thanks.

SOURCE: The starter for my ford 460 stays running after

There is a spring in the starter that should cause it to disengage after the electricity is removed. Double check that the electricity is removed form the starter side of the solenoid, cause that is the easiest thing to check first. Then take the starter off and have it checked for free at your local auto store. If it seems OK to them it may be the starter is not the right one for the bell housing. If it sticks in to far, the starter gear may be stuck partly in the flywheel.

SOURCE: I disconnected and replaced the solenoid on my

You'll need a volt tester or a test light. The large wire from the battery should go to the first large lug, the other larger wire goes to the starter goes to the other large lug. There should be one or two smaller wires that fit the large lugs. If there is only one small wire with a large connector it should go on the starter lug. If there are two small wires with large connectors, you'll have to check to see which one powers the car and ingition. Turn the key and have someone watch the dash lights then touch one wire to the wire from the battery, the one that light up the dash lights goes there, the other will most likely go on the other side but not always. There should also be one or two wire with small connectors these are the ignition switch and ignition wires. Once you have the other wires hooked up, have someone try to start the truck the wire that is hot only when they are trying to start the truck goes to the small lug by the battery side of the solenoid, if there is another wire it will go to the other lug.
I know this is a lot. If you need more help respond to this question and I'll be notified by email and I'll try to help you further.

Check for power at the small wire of the solenoid during cranking position on the ignition switch. Could a bad ignition switch( not lock cylinder ) or a starter safety switch either neutral safety or clutch disengage switch, depending on trans type.

1989 ford f250 wont run with key in run position but will run while cranking


You would need to know if the coil has voltage when the key is in the on position.
The problem could be the ignition module, or the circuit back to the key switch. If the EEC relay is not working, you could have power for the coil in start coming from the starter relay-solenoid but not in run from the key switch.

Replaced starter and sylinoid in my 1989 f250 still wont start


If the old solenoid had a bad short it may have put your new starter out of commission. Have the starter tested-it should still have warranty for repllacement.

My 1989 Ford F-250 keeps trying to start without the key on. I replaced the starter, the solenoid, the ignition switch in the column, found 1 wire that was cracked and taped it, when the battery is hooked...


You still have a bare wire somewhere ... You probably did this already ... I would remove the wire from the ignition switch to the start solenoid and see what happens ...

Good luck on your search ...

1989 ford F250 won't start. no sounds on key turn except the fuel solenoid that clicks. I replaced the starter solenoid but that didn't help either. Last time it happened I tapped the starter and wiggled...


What i think is happening here by the sounds of it is..... your starter has a dead spot. your solenoid may be perfect and is sending current to the starter but no action is taking place. This actually happened to me once on my goldoni tractor and it was the starter!!
