Question about 2000 Ford F150 Flareside SuperCab
This has been happening every once in a while. When you turn the key, nothing happens, not even a click. The battery is OK. After a while the truck starts. Now it won't. I tried jumping the battery, then I tried to hook it up directly to the starter, but went I tried hooking up the jumper battery, I got sparks when I tried to hook up the hot side. So I got under the truck to unhook the cables from the starter and I must have touched the hot to a ground and the starter started to turn. (The cables were not hooked to the jumper battery.) We tried turning the key, but still nothing.
Most likley the positive wire has corroded off the starter. look at the small red wire more closely, if theres alot of corosion, replace the wire (and starter if needed) if you dont see much corrosion give the wire a good tug just to see if it really is hooked up well. you should disconnect the batt. before doing any of this.hope this helps and good luck

Sounds like you either could have popped some fuses, OR you could have even fried the computer. Let's hope you just popped some fuses tho, Hope this helps, James Booth
