You need to check and see if you continue to have power all the time to the starter solenoid. Either the starter is hanging up mechanically or you have constant power going to the starter.

SOURCE: intermittent no start. Battery/charging system ok

If it intermittently starts, the battery/charging systems are ok and you hear the relay click, I would suspect a starter going bad. When the engine won't start have some one hold the key to the run position (as if you were cranking the engine) and tap lightly on the starter housing with a metal hammer. Be careful not to hit any of the wires on the starter. If the engine starts cranking and or starts, the starter is going bad. Chances are the armature is burn't or the brushes are worn out. It is usually cheaper just to put in a re-man starter then trying to rebuild it. And since the car is relatively new, chances are you won't be able find parts for it. Now a word of caution here, when you are tapping on the starter be careful not to be next to any moving parts (pulleys, belts, etc) since the engine may start. Also another thing you could check for is loose power cables. You might want to try this before checking the starter because it's easier. Try wiggling the battery connections, follow the negative to ground and wiggle and do the same thing with the positive cable to the starter. You should not be able to wiggle the connections at all. If you can the connections will need to be either tightened or the connector replaced. This should solve your problem. You could also try swapping your relays around and see if this fixes it (just because a relay clicks dosen't mean its necessarily working right.

SOURCE: 1990 ford taurus won't turn over 3.0l engine auto

first check all fuses, even the high amp fuses under hood. if you replaced the batt. cable and all that check the wiring in the steering column and the wiring to the fuses under the dash. mice get in there and really make a mess!! it could b the key switch too

i'm sure it's not the starter itself that is the problem, have the stater's solenoid might be stucked. It's quite a lot of work removing the starter but you can do it if you are willing enough to learn. You just need the right idea and tools to do it. Hope this will help save you bucks!

SOURCE: 93 Ford Explorer Starter won't disengage from Fly Wheel

My ford f150 did the same thing, so I put the old starter solenoid back in( the one by the battery) and it cured the problem.
Come to find out, the after market relays aren't rated right, to get a good one, and the right one, you have to spend more and get it at a dealer.

If you mean "hard to start and sometimes won't start at all" because it doesn't turn over or doesn't turn over fast enough you need to replace the starter & solinoid.

You more than likely need a new starter selinoid. Also make sure your alternator is putting out enough charge,13.2V or higher. You may also have a problem with the red power cable to the starter especially at the starter hook up point. Hope this helps you. Good luck!

sounds like your fuel filter might be plugged causing the engine shutdown.
sounds like the solenoid on the starter is sticking causing your starter to stay engaged and powered up. the starter will stay powered up and will continue to spin until the starter solenoid is disengaged.
one other area to look at is the ignition switch. if that is bad it will continue to send a power signal to the starter solenoid keeping it engaged. so, you may want try unplugging that first, while your starter is running. if continues to run, then i would say it is the starter solenoid and not the switch. good luck

On the 5th. starter?

Get a shim kit for the starter. Disconnect the ignition so it won't start while cranking in the start mode. Start with the thinnest shim between the starter and block. Crank and listen to the starter operation. Add more shims until the starter drive gear engages and disengages without making any wierd binding or grinding noises while cranking the engine.
