Question about 1993 Ford Crown Victoria
I started my car and let it run a minute before I put it into gear. When I did engage it and started to move, it died on me. It would not do anything after that except the starter would click once and stop. It would seem that maybe a battery cable was loose so I checked them and they were both tight. This car has a push button switch hooked up to it mounted beside steering column It is directly hooked to starter and has worked fine since i got the car about a year ago. Okay, I thought maybe a dead battery so I boosted it and even let it set a long time to hopefully build up more. Same thing, turn ignition over , push the crank button and the starter clicks once and that is it. I took starter off and tested it hooked straight to a battery and it works perfect. The Bendix comes out and spins. Anyways, tried it on the car again to no avail. I then traded starters and same thing. Works off the car but not on. The solenoid is attached to the side of starter. I took starter to 2 local parts stores to have them test it. They say that the a starter and solenoid is strong enough off the car to work right but when put on the car the solenoid isn't pushing enough juice to turn my flywheel. I have checked all the wiring from battery to starter to ignition and all is okay. I just can not think of anything else to try. Please respond to me soon.
Its the starter the solenoid is grounded though the starter when you put positive power to
the solenoid its grounded through the starter windings. when brush's start waring out
the stater cannot keep the currant constant under the load of starting the engine. but out of the car
the starter will run. if you bypass the solenoid it can not engage the flywheel and the starter
it will spin. It's the starter and get a new solenoid too.
