Question about 1991 Ford F250

1 Answer

1991 f 250 when starting during cold weather starter sticks to the run postion and ignition i can turn back and forth and truck will not shut off until starter burns out

When starting truck in cold weather the starter sticks to the run or start position and when I turn the ignition back and forth the starter is in the run position I can even take the key out and the starter Is sticking in the run position I have replaced the steering column with a used one from the junk dealer and installed a new ignition hoping this would solve the probem only way it will shut off is when the starter burns out also as this is all going on the starter sounds like it is grinding with something probably the flywheel? although after this stops during warmer weather the truck starts fine.

SOURCE: ignition will not start truck

There is a sliding actuator that is in the steering column. It is spring loaded, this is what provides the resistance when you turn the key. It's what the rod that connects to the key lock assembly leads to. The bad news is that you have 2 choices, replace the steering column or destroy the cover to get to it. Sorry to tell you that.

SOURCE: Ford F-150 1999 5.4 Liter. I changed starter now truck shakes!!!

if it didn't shake before the starter change,and the black marks were not there before,you need to see if the positive cable is getting hot to the touch,double check the large battery cables going to starter that they are on correctly ,dont go by color of wire ,visually follow each wire to starter to make sure its a ground or hot one,last possibility
would be a dead short in starter.

SOURCE: Ford f250 Truck 1987 460. Solenoid sticks once in

Most likely you need a new Ignition switch. The small "tickler" wires on your solenoid are staying on. You can disconnect the small wire from the Solenoid and then put a test light on it. Turn the Ignition to Start and see if the wire stays hot when you release the key.

Another problem you could have is the Starter has such a bad intermittent short in it, that it keeps the points welded together after the key is released from the Start position. You can get a starter Draw test done at some parts stores like Autozone or Oreillys to name a few, they do it free and on the truck.

Let me know the result please,

Could be the neutral safely switch is still not adjusted properly. With your foot on the brake and the transmission in neutral, move the shifter a little bit in either direction while holding the key in the start position. If the starter engages, the switch needs to be adjusted.

My 1991 plymoth colt gl wont start in cold weather


look at the ignition bypass resistor. It's on the firewall close to the brake master cylinder. It provides full battery voltage while cranking and then runs at reduced voltage the rest of the time. Your ignition switch controls it's operation, so look for a faulty ignition switch too.

IT sounds to me like the solenoid is sticking. Follow the large wire up from where it bolts onto stater and the next thing that wire is bolted to is the solenoid.

I have a 1992 toyota 4wd 3l that has been starting really hard especially on cold mornings. i cleaned the cold start injector and changed the timmer but it still does it. can anyone help? thanks rick


Check your battery for proper volts (12.6). Sometimes the cold weather will bring a battery down. Also check the Starter Relay, again cold weather will make it stick causing it not to start. Those are the biggest problems with a car not starting in the cold weather unless you have something else going on then your starter and your ignition needs to be checked.

1999 FORD EXPEDITION intermittantly will not start.


You have a bad starter. A faulty starter will function when its cold but when it heats up, it takes more energy to get the starter to engage. Your problem is exhibiting the classic symptoms of a bad starter. I hope this solves your problem and the best of luck to you.

Dodge nitro wont start or turn over. The battery checks out ok. what could be causing problem??


Is this an intermitting problem only occure during dry and cold weather?
Behind the ignition key lock there is a module call Wireless Control Module (WCM). When this module is zap by static eletricity build up during cold weather (via the key). It will hang just like you computer.
As a test please please touch the key to a metal object to discharge the static on the key before insert it into the ignition.
If the problem stop complete then you can take it to the Dodge dealer the arrange service on the Wireless Control Module (WCM) or wire for better grounding.

1983 240 Volvo-won't start, here are the details


sounds like a defective ignition switch, not the key cylinder but the actual switch, the contacts that run the fuel pump during cranking are different than the ones that run it after start is released, this may be the problem, the run contacts are defective, fairly common concern..
