Could be the safety switch on the brake pedal lever. If the switch is loose, it will not allow the starter relay to get power.

This can also mean the brake lights may not work at times. This is a common problem because the driver's feet can bump the switch.

SOURCE: starter will not turn over until the batt. cable is disconnected

Sounds to me like there is a short in the starting system that is causing this (or it's wired wrong). Ford starter solenoids are known for problems. The reason the starter will turn after the cable is disconnected is because the circuit (or in this case short circuit) has been broken . I'll bet if you replace the starter solenoid, your problem will be solved. I think it's just "shorting-to-ground". Good Luck!

SOURCE: won't start, cleaned battery terminals, batt

Most likely it's either your selenoid or your starter. But before you buy one, have someone turn the key tro crank position while you tap the selenoid with the hammer. If it starts, you have a bad starter.

Why won't it turn over?


There is a starter solenoid under the hood on in side the right side fender . close to the firewall on the right side. the small wire is the trigger wire, see if you get power when you turn the key to start on that wire.

Starter motor relay! - not sure which one it is - definitely sounds like starter relay tho.
if you disconnect the main wire from the starter and turn the key you will kear the relay clicking, find it and replace it... should solve your problem.

Truck will only click when attempting to start. the starter relay,alternator,battery and coil ignition are all new.


May be that you starter is overheating. If the problem is intermitent and generaly occurs after driving for a while then it might be the trouble.
