What have you checked so far ?
Will the engine crank in neutral ? Does it use a security chip in the key ?
Does the starter have power at the large post and on the small wire coming from the key switch ?

Replaced battery cables on my 1998 Ford Expedition. Now when I turn the ignition the starter enguages then emediatly disenguages, like there is a load on it other than turning over the motor. Was star


You said you replaced the battery cables, how come? Problems getting car started? might be a bad starter, not cables... if battery is good, cables are new, may be starter solenoid malfunction... the solenoid tells the starter gear to engage the flywheel, then release the flywheel once the engine rotates fast enough (assuming you let go of the key once engine gets going :)... or you could even have a worn ignition switch or faulty wire behind the switch (not so likely)

Ford F-250 starter stays engaged after engine is running


Sounds like the starter solonoide is hanging up.
This condition can be remedied by replacing the starter soloniode on the starter motor.

DO NOT drive the truck with the starter enguaged... you will find electrical problems popping up if you do....

94 corvette sticky starter


you havent said if the started sticks and wont enguage or it enguages and sticks enguaged once started. In either case it sounds like your starter is going to need to be replaced but check two things... make sure your battery voltage is good and check the teeth on the flywheel to nake sure they are in good condition. You nay also have to shim the starter in sme cases to achive the correct clearance. Good luck!

Engine doesn't even turn over but I have power


Check the fuse box for the ignition fuse. If it is not blown you need to get a volt meter and see if power is getting to the starter when the key is turned (watch for moving parts). If power at the starter then the starter is bad. No power at the starter then its the ignition itself, or a starter solenoid.

Starting problem, starter doesn't enguage. good starter, battery, celinoid, ignition lock, flex plate.


Have you chk. the starter switch on the steering colume under dash? Or is starter drive kicking in but not engaging teeth in flexplate? If its not engaging teeth on flexplate starter needs to be shimmed, or if its missing the teeth altogether on flexplate or bearly catching the teeth, top of starter nose wear it bolts up needs to be filed down to engage the teeth on flexplate.
