The solenoid is grounded through the bolt that fastens it to the inner fender. If it isn't enough make a new one that goes from the mounting bolt of the solenoid to the negative of the battery

do you mean the callipers or the disk? the callipers you should find on the rear of the calliper two bolts should be 1/2 in or 13mm,these bolts are in between the slider bolts for calliper. if they won't go willingly try heating them up with a propane torch be careful not burn the pads or the hose or sensor if you have one once warm try agin with a socket or wrench if no lu goto any car parts store and get some liquid wrench wait til they cool and sprayon wait til next day and they should come out alot easier ...if its the disk use a big hammer or a small sledge don't hit it on where the pads go oron the edge a firm hit close to the hub will doit .. be careful once you have the calliper off make sure you tie it up with some rope or a bungie so you damge the hose godd luck

In all the technical data I have access to Snap-on, Mac, AllDATA and most service manuals all tell you to start with a wiggle test and clean all grounds.
Wiggle test means wiggle the wires and connectors while te engine is running and see if there is a change in performance. I suggest unplugging the connectors one by one and doing a visual inspection on them, look for green corrosion rust oxydized connections etc, add a little bit of di-electric grease and plug it back in, for the grounds that are bolted on remove these but be careful not to break off the rusty ones then use 400 grit sandpaper and shine up the mating surfaces add some di-electric grease and re install. Before you start to clean the connectors and grounds remove the neg off the battery, it will reset the check engine light if left unplugged for 30 mins

your starter relay is defective it is located where the fuse box is located..look for the marked starter relay then replace it with a new one..

My 1991 ford f250 will not even respond no clicking or grinding nothing at all when switch is turn over


I think you have a couple of problems going on here. First a solenoid would not cause the engine to lose power until it dies. This problem will probably be an alternator going bad, bad battery, or bad battery connections (check ground wires on engine, body, and battery then check positive wires on battery and to power distribution block). These related issues can be the root cause to solve the starting issue, which I will discuss now.
I recently repaired a 94 F-150 that would not even click when trying to start it. It was the push on connector to the solenoid on passenger inner fender well. I have also seen where this solenoid loses its ground (corrosion between screws and fender well). The 94 had two solenoids, one on the fender and one on the starter. To see if the solenoid valve is good, you can use a jumper wire from the hot side of the solenoid to the small terminal stud. If it clicks it should be okay and the ground okay. Be sure to have the vehicle in park or neutral with the parking brake on before doing this, because you are bypassing safeties.

My 1999 Ford F250 Light Duty Truck has a corroded cable that goes to the starter. I replaced the ground cable that goes from the battery to the starter and it still will not turn over. I left the original...


the ground cable is just that. as long as it connects from the battery to the engine and another cable from the engine to body or the battery to the body, thats OK.. Now the 2 positive cables goes from battery to the starter solenoid on the fender and another from the battery to the starter itself. there is a red wire (smaller) that goes from the solenoid to the stater .....there is a fusible link at the starter solenoid, make sure that the solenoid has power. if no power ..then the fuse links may be burned out. if you connect battery power to the small terminal on the solenoid the starter should spin the engine over IF all other wires are ok.

Wiring problems


The ground usually goes through the bracket, as the engine has a ground wire. Do you have the field connector connected? Can you read at voltage on the alternator with the engine running?

Hello,
Your 94' F250 must have a 7.3 I'm sure. Is your engine a factory 7.3 powerstoke or a normally asperated diesel? The solenoid pack for the glow plugs has been a real common culprit for these Ford diesels. The following is most likely your problem.
1-bad ground or poor ground at the glow plug solenoid.
2-Defective solenoid for the glow plug circuit.
3-Defective glow plug in the circuit.

Ok to check these problems you can do the following.
Check the ground by taking a DVOM and checking the resistance between the engine or chassis ground and the mounting bolts that secure the solenoid to the engine.
Then check for a min of 11.8 volts to the solenoid input post. Then check the output voltage to I believe the brown ouput wire to the glow plugs. Check the connection furthest from the sloenoid typicly at cyl. 1 and cyl 5. This takes two pepole. Have someone else cycle the key while you check the voltage. If the voltage is good but still the solenoid is cycling off too quickly disconnect the brown output wire to the glow plugs and cycle the key again. If the problem goes away test each glow plug's resistance for a direct short to ground or the wire arness. If the problem persists I suggest replacing the solenoid.

04 f250 wont start - with new battery


Sounds to me like you might have one of two problems, and one is an easy fix, while the other might require a mechanic.

Option 1: Check Your Cables. If you have a loose ground cable, then you might be able to tighten it and reestablish a good ground. Also, check the wiring to your starter and alternator.

Option 2: Check The Starter Solenoid. This one might require a mechanic. It sounds like your solenoid isn't getting enough juice, or it doesn't have enough capacity to fire it off without added current. If this is the case, get your solenoid checked.

Good luck!
