Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab
1997 ford f-150 4 wl drive small v-8,
power every where but starter will not engage when turning key,even with headlights on ,turn key to start and nothing,doesnt even effect headlights when trying,stumped, help!!!!!!!!!
The problem is either the starter solinoid (located on fender near battery) or you are not getting power to the "s" terminal on the starter solinoid from the ignition switch. If you follow the positive battery cable from the battery you'll follow it to the solinoid. Remove the small wire from the terminal marked "s" on the solinoid and using a screwdriver jump from "s" terminal (not the wire) to where positive battery cable connects to solinoid. (with battery connected). If starter doesn't do anything the solinoid is bad. If starter cranks then you are not getting voltage from ignition switch through "s" terminal wire.
