Under the hood on the passenger fire wall you will see the starter solenoid.Unplug the small wire running to it and see if your problem goes away.If it does problem is ignition switch if it does not then tap the solenoid and see if it quits.If this takes care of it then solenoid is bad.

Why does my 1999 Ford Expedition eating starters after replacing valve cover, removed cruise control box but it is back exactly the same?


Its your starter shims. Put shims in , what is happening is your starter gear is remaining engaged even after it starts thus it tears up the starter and the gear. It may take 2-3 shims. When you replaced your first starter did it have shims? I am willing to bet it did. Give it a try and i bet this fixes your problem. Good luck

Why won't my 1997 ford expedition 5.4 triton start everything works except stereo turn key nothing engine don't turn over there's nothing


Check that the giant red wire on the starter is connected to the starter and the battery. Then check that the giant black wire on the starter goes to ground.

Actually, if there isn't even a click, check the starter relay. And it's fuse. It could also be the ignition switch.

I would suspect that the solenoid contacts need replacing as they may be burning together. Pull the starter and have an accredited auto electrician bench test it.

I installed a new alternator, batter, and starter in my 1997 Ford Expedition and my truck wont start unless you hit the starter. All the wires are good so what else is there to check?


Sounds like you still have a bad starter. You can get a bad one from the parts store. Go back and have them test it. Or could be cylinoid.

needs shimmed or the bendix is bad in the starter and not allowing to release. most likely just needs shimmed if it's a new starter, however you can get a bad starter (new or rebuilt)

There are several things you need to check. Start by checking the alignment between the pinion gear of the starter and the flywheel. If that is loose or binding the starter will do this. Next, check teh starter relay to make sure it isn't faulting out. finally, if you have an Alarm installed, cut the power wire to the alarm or pull the fuse to make sure it isn't the Anti-Theft circuit malfunctioning and stopping it from starting.
