#1 Try starting the car in Neutral, if no start replace the Park and Neutral safty switch. #2 Check for a faulty starter solenoid. #3 Check for a faulty stsrter motor. #4 Check for a faulty ignition switch. #5 Check for faulty starter Relays.#6 Check the Transmission Range sensor it could be out of adjustment or defective. #7 On 1998 and later models, the power relay is in the power distribution box in the engine compartment.

Does the starter solenoid at least click?
If not, then solenoid is the problem.
If it does click, then could be starter, low battery, or something else we would walk through.
Ford usually has a round starter solenoid on the fender near the starter, but not part of it.
Fords also sometimes need to have the engine turned a bit by hand, to get it past a spot where the bendix binds.

93 ford escort starter problem


never mind "A"join the club there keep taking the pills
take a screw driver and short out the battery wire to the small terminal on the starter this should spin the starter over and the engine at the same time if nothing happens the solenoid cap on the starter is faulty, you should here it click in to spin the motor up
if it clicks but still no go then its the starter motor its self likley to be brushes

Intermitent fault on starting 1.8Td escort van


Starter motor relay! - not sure which one it is - definitely sounds like starter relay tho.
if you disconnect the main wire from the starter and turn the key you will kear the relay clicking, find it and replace it... should solve your problem.

Wont start


is the earth cable giving a good engine and body contact.does your starter have two terminals and if so are they the right way around?is the battery any good?Is the engine able to be turned over by hand Make sure you have agood 12v supply to the starter solenoid when cranking the engine An engine test probe/light would be of a lot of use for you to do that test
