The starter is located underneath the intake manifold. It is replaced from the bottom of the car.

2006 ford five hundred will not start can jump at starter and it starts but when driving it only stays in high gear not much power.


Do you know what the starter relay is ? Starter Relay
The starter relay:
  • is a mini ISO relay that switches power to the starter solenoid to engage the starter motor.
  • receives a START signal from the ignition switch.
  • is controlled by the powertrain control module (PCM).
Starter System - Operation
When the ignition switch is turned to the START position, the starter relay switches power to the starter solenoid causing the starter motor to engage as long as:
  • the digital transmission range (TR) sensor is in PARK or NEUTRAL.
  • the anti-theft system is operational.

Do the headlamps work? Any component that doesn't work, if the component is fuse protected, not only check the fuse, check the fuse circuit for voltage, use a test lite to check for voltage. There are fusible links, one of the positive battery cables goes to fusible links.
There should be a way to test starter motor to see if it will crank the engine. Two voltage circuits at starter motor, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot when starter relay is energized. The starter motor grounds through engine block. I did look at wiring diagram, not sure of your engine size, but the relay had no terminal numbers in the diagram, sometimes that means the relay is soldered into the fuse box, so you can't just pull it out.
You might be able to use a long shank screwdriver and short the two voltage terminals at the starter motor, it may crank the engine. At least you know the starter motor will crank the engine. If you try that make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.

Why once I have driven my 1998 Ford Explorer XLT and the motor warms up and I turn off the switch. The ignition will not turn over. I can. Crossout the cylinoid and it starts automatically


Hey Opie , how are thing's in Mayberry ? Ha Ha Ha , bet you get that a lot .
The ignition will not turn over. You mean the starter will not turn over ? When you turn the key to the start position nothing happens ? The starter doesn't spin the engine .
Could be a few reasons . High resistance in the starting circuits . Do you have and know how to use a volt meter ? Doing voltage drop testing on the starter motor , cables .
