Question about 1988 Ford F 250
Replaced solenoid and truck did not start it was completly dead could I have cross some wires while installing the new solenoid also I got a spark from the positive cable when hooking it back up the keys were not in???
You may have hooked some wires up incorrectly. The smaller diameter wires on the small posts go to different items. One goes to the starter and the other to the ignition. Sometimes the little black bonnets that plug on to the terminals are marked. (S for starter and I for ignition.) You can also jump across the terminals to bypass the ignition switch to see if you even get power to the starter. Let me know what happens.
