The signal to the starter solenoid depends on a switch on the brake pedal lever. Chances are your foot has moved or broken this switch. Check to see if your brake lights work.

You can also put a Voltmeter on the small wire on the starter solenoid to see if voltage is present when you turn the key to the START position.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Explorer Sport wont start

Even though I bought the vehicle new, there was an aftermarket security system installed. The system had a bad diode, so i removed the system and reconnected the factory wires.

If you are getting fuel and spark, than it probably is either a bad ground, or the TPS sensor itself.

SOURCE: Air conditioning relay switch - 2001 Ford Tauras

there is usually a relay block (black in color) either on the right or left side under the hood, and in front of the wheel well. Don't discount the possibility that you may have a bad pressure switch on the line. That is a safety device that is now installed on most all vehicles. If you turn on your defrost, you should hear the clutch on your AC clicking on and off. If you do, there is another issue. If you don't, then listen for a faint clicking. This is a small relay so it maybe very hard to hear, even if you found it. You many actually have to lightly put a finger on the relay cube to see if you can feel it clicking. If this is clicking, but the AC is not kicking in and out, replace the relay. If this is NOT clicking with the defrost on, then it is not being told that it is ok to. This may be the pressure switch that drops out if the freon is too low, or too high.

SOURCE: 89 ford probe, 2.2 turbo, no spark.

Check out your "fuel cut-off switch" located by the windshield washer tank behind the driver's side wheel-well panel in the trunk. It's a small box with a push-button at the top. If the button is "soft" when you push it, that's probably your problem. Replace the unit by removing the washer fluid tank first. The box simply plugs in. Probably about $ 100. I replaced three in my Probe. They rot out, and the car simple dies.

2008 Ford ranger Won't start or crank at key switch. Any suggestions?


Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. The diagram is for starter motor. Not only check the fuses, use a test light and check voltage on fuse circuits. You have a starter relay, You could, for testing, unplug the relay, use proper jumper wire on load side of relay, the load side is terminal 87 and 30. It should crank the engine. If you try that make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.
Your security system says, starter motor disable. By using the jumper, your bypassing that for testing. I don't know what testing you've done?

2003 ford explorer sport trac cranks and wont start,ive replaced the a/c compressor,serpentine belt,battery twice,and fuel filter


If the fuel pump is good, you have spark, and air...And you checked all fuses, including the crank fuse. Id move into checking crankshaft position sensor and camshaft position sensors. The two sensors communicate with the computer to tell the top half of the engine and lower half of the engine the sequence that they are in if one of them isn't working correctly the car won't even know it's trying to run.

Technically even with starter fluid you should get some type of combustion, regardless though I would move on the checking of solenoids.

Car won't crank


No parts are ever replaced to resolve any vehicle issues

You have to proper test any vehicle systems that apear
to have a problem

Once all the answers are present, only then do parts get
installed if necessary

Things such as fuses & relays only fail here on these web site
blogs, for the most parts,way too much silly talk about nothing

Need to have the car at a repair shop that actually can diagnose
something

From what I see on this site from people asking questions,
that appears to be an issue also,finding a half decent shop
these days

My 99 Gmc jimmy will not start. the fuel pump is good the fuel filter is not clogged, i replaced the neutral safety switch, plugged in my code reader no codes, i believe it is the starter or the ignition...


Does it crank or not? If no crank then look at the starter or ignition switch. If crank but no start then look at the ignition system. Check for spark at the plugs and also check the fuel pressure. If there is spark try spraying a little starting fluid into the intake. See if it starts and stays running. If it stays running reply back and I will explain why.

How much fuel do you have?
Do you have an imobiliser?

1997 contour 4 cyl cranks but wont start acts like fuel starved


If it acts like it's starved for fuel, it probably is related to that. I would check first though. If you have a carb, you can spray starter fluid inside and then crank it. If it tried to start, then it is fuel related. Probably a fuel pump, fuel filter, or fuel relay, or perhaps a fuse. If it doesn't start for a second, it could be many more things. If so, you should check your ignition system, spark plugs, wires, distributor, coils, ect. If your battery and starter are fine, start looking to see if your car is getting fuel. Hope this helps. Being broke down sucks!

1999 ford contour that wont crank


You mean wont CRANK or CRANKS but WONT RUN???? 4 cyl or V6 auto or manual trans????????? The 8th VIN digit would be most helpful as there are 4 different engines for that car. Its really cheaper to check items before you replace them. The starter should have a smaller BLACK wire that should have power on it when trying to crank the car. You say it wont crank, then check the neutral switch on the trans. Try putting it in neutral to start it. If it has a manual trans, the clutch switch on the pedal may be bad. There is a starter relay in the fuse box under the hood that powers the starter, does it click if you turn the key to start? if it does then the relay is at least trying to work, but doenst mean the contacts inside are good, If it does not click, then the neutral switch may be bad.Check the BLACK/YELLOW wire at the trans switch, if it has power on it, the switch may be bad, ground that (Black/Yellow)wire and see if it cranks. I dont know if there are any other relays in the fuse box that you can swap for the starter relay for test purposes.
