Won't start


Check the battery cables make sure they are clean and tight. Make sure the battery has at least 12V, new batteries sit on the shelf for months sometimes before they are purchased. If this yields no results, remove the starter and have it checked. If it checks bad, replace the starter.

How do I replace starter on 2001 Ford Explorer sport trac


Disconnect negative battery cable, remove starter bolts, pull starter out and down to remove connections. Pay attention to how they are situated. Attach connections to new starter exactly the same way, install, and re-connect your battery cable, and you should be off!

2001 Ford Explorer Sport wont start


Even though I bought the vehicle new, there was an aftermarket security system installed. The system had a bad diode, so i removed the system and reconnected the factory wires.

HI, please refer to the guide below for thorough instruction on replacing your starter.

Remove the Malfunctioning Starter Step1 Park your Ford Explorer on a level surface, activate the emergency brake and place blocks behind the back tires for safety. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a terminal puller. Raise the front end of the car with a jack for easier access to the starter. Step2 Grasp the plastic shell of the hard-shell connector at the S-terminal and pull straight off, without pulling the wire. If damage occurs, replace those items as well. Step3 Detach all wires connected to the starter, including the ground wire on the starter motor bolt stud, starter cable and the solenoid push-on connector. Some Ford Explorer starter motors have a self-threading bolt holding the starter cable in place. Step4 Remove the starter mounting bolts, starting with the upper bolt, and place them in the jar for safe keeping until later. Then remove the malfunctioning starter from the engine. Step5 Take your malfunctioning starter to the parts store with you. Aftermarket distributors remanufacture most of the starters they sell, so you can likely obtain a partial credit toward your new starter by exchanging your old one. Be sure that you take care not to damage the starter in transit, because the better condition it is in, the more you can get for it. Step6 Purchase a replacement starter that has the same or higher cranking capacity (power rating) as the original starter in your Ford Explorer. Also, match the bolt patterns, drive gears and electrical connections. Your owner's manual may list specifications or the auto parts technician will help you determine them. Download a free owner's manual at Ford Fleet. Install the New Starter Step1 Position the new starter in the correct location and install with the mounting bolts. Torque the mounting bolts between 15 to19 foot pounds (21 to 27 Nm). Step2 Push the solenoid connector straight on to the starter and listen for a click to be certain of proper installation. Step3 Attach starter cable nut to the B-terminal of the solenoid. Tighten the nut between 80 to 123 inch pounds (9 to 14 Nm). Reconnect the additional starter wiring and replace the red safety cap. Step4 Lower the vehicle to the ground and reconnect the negative battery cable. Disconnecting the battery cable may cause the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to lose information. After testing to make sure the vehicle starts, drive at least ten miles for the PCM to relearn its adaptive strategies.

Please rate and god bless.
