Bought new starter, put on now car won't start with key ignition. Started before new starter?? Could starter be bad or solenoid? Can start by touching solenoid & positive in starter


It sounds to me like you have a bad solenoid, If the solenoid was on the starter when you bought it I would go and get another starter. Otherwise just replace the solenoid.

Where is the solenoid on a 2006 ford expedition


I assume you are looking for the starter solenoid. This is now part of the starter. Ford no longer has a seperate solenoid to the starter. It used to be under the hood, on the battery side, near the battery. Inrecent years, the starter solenoid became part of the starter. Mounted on top of the starter. Follow the Red battery cable, down to the starter. This will lead you directly to the solenoid.

Won't crank over


The solenoid on the remanufactured starter may be defective. Also, sometimes it is necessary to shim a solenoid to get it to engage the ring gear properly.

When i turn the key the cylanoid kicks in but it wont crank over


If the starter or solenoid clicks but nothing else happens when you attempt to start the engine, there may not be enough amps to spin the starter. Or the starter may be bad. A poor battery cable, solenoid or ground connection, or high resistance in the solenoid itself may be the problem. A voltage check at the solenoid will reveal if battery voltage is passing through the ignition switch circuit. If the solenoid or relay is receiving battery voltage but is not closing or passing enough amps from the battery to spin the starter motor, the solenoid ground may be bad or the contacts in the solenoid may be worn, pitted or corroded. If the starter cranks when the solenoid is bypassed, a new solenoid is needed, not a starter. so first the voltage of the battery needs to be checked.the other things to be checked is starter and starter solenoid. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Starter solinoid replacement enstruction


SOLENOID REPLACEMENT

Prior to removing the solenoid from the starter motor unit, matchmark the solenoid-to-starter motor housing position, as shown in the accompanying illustration.
  1. Remove the starter motor from the vehicle.
  2. Detach the solenoid-to-starter motor wire from the solenoid terminal.

Do not disassemble the solenoid; if the solenoid is defective, replace the entire unit with a new one.
  1. Remove the two attaching screws, then slide the solenoid out of the starter motor housing flange.

Fig. 7: ... then remove the two attaching screws and separate the solenoid from the motor housing


To install:
  1. Inspect the solenoid plunger joint for wear or other damage. Replace it, if damage is evident.
  2. Apply Suzuki Super Grease A (99000-25010) or equivalent, to the solenoid plunger and to the tip of the lever arm (inside the starter motor-to-solenoid housing hole).
  3. Insert the solenoid into the starter motor housing, ensuring that the matchmarks made during removal are aligned.
  4. Install and tighten the two attaching screws securely.
  5. Attach the starter motor-to-solenoid wire to the solenoid terminal.
  6. While the starter motor is removed form the vehicle, perform the testing procedure to ensure that the new solenoid functions properly.
