    That is very helpful. I tried to remove the shroud around the steering wheel. It appears that the steering wheel will have to be pulled to get to the ignition switch. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    I just bought a 1999 Aurora for $500.00. It's in good shape. But sometimes it won't crank without a jump start. When I put the key in the ignition and crank it. It just clicks. The lights, Radio and other stuff turnes on but the car won't crank. Without a jump.

Definately the ignition switch. The main relay has 2 sides to it. Its turns everything on like fuel pump ecu and ect. when the key is in the start position. Then the other side of it is the simply run side which keeps everything on but disengages the starter. You can fix it by taking it apart but its better to just go ahead and get a new one. I dont think they are that expensive.

Compressor Clutch disengages and Radiator Fan starts to run loudly


The radiator fan should turn on when the a/c clutch engages as this is designed to increase the cooling of the engine as the a/c increases the engine loading. But the compressor clutch should stay engaged as long as there is need for cooling, and disengage/re-engage as the temperature control calls for cool air. The radiator fan will shut off IF the engine temperature is cool enough to do so, as it is regulated by heat, as well as the A/c override.

If your air conditioning is not cooling the car and the clutch is simply disengaging prematurely, have the temperature control and relay checked for proper operation. Also have the refrigerant level checked to assure there is adequate refrigerant in the system and no leaks. My first bet would be the relay or the thermostatic temperature control under the dash.

Starter will not disengage after


It sounds like the "bendix drive" is gone in your starter. This is the assembly that engages and disengages the starter to the engine. The only way to fix the problem is to replace the starter. Hope this helps.

1995 Taurus. Starter will not disengage. Engine cranks, but will not turn over.


Find the starter relay under the hood. It may be bad and stuck so power continues going to the starter. Try a new relay Or try pulling off the small signal wire on the relay (it is from the switch), and hook battery up. If starter continues to run, the relay is bad. If starter is stopped, put the signal wire back on relay. If starter now starts operating, and key is still off, then switch may be bad .Location of relay may be at left front fender apron, in front of shock tower (like on earlier taurus models).

Zidane.tompsoni have a 1986 ford bronco 2 2.9 V6 im haveing some sorta electrical problem after driveing 3-8 minutes the fual pump will shut off and the truck dies i them try to start it up and the starter...


sounds like your fuel filter might be plugged causing the engine shutdown.
sounds like the solenoid on the starter is sticking causing your starter to stay engaged and powered up. the starter will stay powered up and will continue to spin until the starter solenoid is disengaged.
one other area to look at is the ignition switch. if that is bad it will continue to send a power signal to the starter solenoid keeping it engaged. so, you may want try unplugging that first, while your starter is running. if continues to run, then i would say it is the starter solenoid and not the switch. good luck

2002 Beetle - starts but won't keep running.


it could be a bad fuel pump, crank position sensor, broken/misaligned timing belt, etc. basically you need spark, fuel, and air to make the engine run. also the timing belt needs to be not broken and aligned properly.

As soon as I turn the key to the on position, the engine turns over


The problem is either in the mechanism that pushes the rod that activates the ignition switch from the key lock cylinder, or the ignition switch is defective.
