Question about 1991 Ford Econoline
If you have an automatic transmission you need to check the neutral safety switch; if it's a manual check the clutch safety switch.

Might be a weak battery.
Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid or starting relay, whichever the car uses.
Hope this helps.

Ford starters have a solenoid that is a relay to the starter. I could not read the rest of the problem? Got changed ignition, starter and....

Ford used alot of fuseable links, mostly around starter selenoid, look around for them and everyone you find try pulling them apart if there bad or burnt they will pull apart and there is your problem. If you don't find one burnt, than its got to be in the wire comming from the switch, heck there might be one of them fuseable links in that wire too.I never had to go that far to find a burnt one it was always around the selenoid or starter.

you must have put the cable on the wrong side of the solenoid

First pour some gas down the intake(just a small sipp)and crank it,if it starts you have a fuel distribution problem.If it dont, there is an ignition problem.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the straight advise. I will give it a try"
Sooooooo. The relay coil is drawing more current than the fuse can handle..... First guess is a short in the wire between the fuse and the relay coil. I would disconnect the wire that powers the solenoid relay coil. Then I would try (momentarily) clip leading a wire to the battery positive terminal - and touching the other end to the relay coil terminal connection. (Caution!! you are bypassing the factory wire and its associated fuse. If your temporary wire becomes hot - IMMEDIATELY remove it from the coil.) ------------------------However, I suspect that you will have the coil energized and that the engine will turn over....since the key is not in the ON position, the motor will not start.
If this works-then you know that the factory wire is touching the chassis somewhere... and you can either remove it and run another from the fuse to the coil terminal - or try to find the point of the short (good luck - and let me know)
