SOURCE: 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.

If you can verify that the battery is good then I would say that the starter itself has failed. This clicking you hear is the solenoid on the starter attempting to engage the starter.

If you are getting fuel and spark, than it probably is either a bad ground, or the TPS sensor itself.

have your battery tested for CCA (cold cranking amps) often voltage will be fine but CCA will be too low.

Starter will not engage on 2003 Ford escortzx2 starter tested and fine what do u think it is

Make sure battery has a full charge and connections all good. How did you test it?
Did you check voltage and ground for the starter motor? Two voltage circuits at the starter motor, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other goes hot with key in the crank position and is wired through the clutch or neutral switch, depending on your tranny. Ground is also important. Any testing at starter motor, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.

Starter attempts to re-engage after already running

I agree with Ignition switch diagnosis. Another possibility is a short in the lockout for the gearshift and brake pedal lever. This is suppose to stop you from starting the vehicle unless your foot is on the brake pedal. These get smashed and it should not allow power to go to the starter relay, but if they do cross the circuit, it may provide power to the starter relay. You did not say if the starter tried to engage when you tried to shift from Park.

I think the Ignition switch is the most likely, but I wanted to mention the crushed lockout switch as a remote possibility.

Starter motor run on, starter has been replaced

replace the ignition switch or disconnect the starter cable from the switch and make/fit a push button for the starter motor just like the old fashioned cars like the old mini that had a push button by the handbrake or a london bus that had one on a panel above your head

Starter problem

I suspect that when the transmission was replaced, the starter was not aligned properly during its re-installation. If the transmission replacement was done by a professional shop, take it back and ask them to check the starter alignment and proper operation.

My ford f150 wont start, battery is good, have a

On the firewall is the starter motor relay. There are 2 large battery sized cables to it, and 1 smaller ( 16 AWG ) wire that is orange or orange with a stripe ( forget the color, want to say white or tan ).

When you turn the key to the start position, check the smaller gauge wire for +12 V. The case should be ground. If you do not get +12 on the orange wire, try starting the truck in neutral ( apply the parking brake, chock the wheel, etc normal safety precautions ). Test for +12 V at the small wire. This is the output of the DTR ( Digital Transmission Range ) sensor or in common terms the Neutral switch. The start position on the ign switch runs through the DTR to the starter motor relay coil.
If you have a stick, the DTR is replaced by the Clutch Pedal Position Switch ( clutch must be pushed in to start ).
If you have power to this ( at the times the truck won't start ) next is to check the both battery cable ends to see if they are corroded and making intermittent contact ( not probable but possible ).

Hello i have a ford econoline 250 its a 98 and it was running fine till about yesterday i was on a job site and i go to start the car to go home and it doesnt start, battery is good, i got my starter...

I have the same problem out of my 88 e-150 v8. It's the fuel pump. Two things: Wiggle the shifter make sure it is completely in park. For some reason the fuel pump doesn't work unless the shifter is just right. Second: Sometimes the fuel pumps don't just go out. They work intermitently. Open the door, turn the switch on. Then back off. You should be able to hear the fuel pump kicking on and off. Do it several times and you should hear if if is not working 100%
