Replace the ignition switch

Posted on Mar 25, 2014

Testimonial: "If i pull the "S" wire off while it is engaged that would eliminate anything from the solenoid to the steering wheel,correct. I say this because the "S" wire supplies the current to engage the solenoid."

SOURCE: I am having a no start no crank problem with my

I am experiencing the same issue with my 2001 expeditiion. Just curious... after the vehicle has been running hot for a while and you park and shut the motor, then it won't restart? Unless I wait for approx 1/2 hour when motor has cooled then it starts up. I have had mechanics check the fuel line and the fuel seems to "vapor lock". The fuel pump may need repaired/replaced. I am not experiencing and electrical issue. This is a fuel intake issue.

SOURCE: When I start my 88 F150 the starter will not

I have an 89 F350 that did same thing, I went thru 5 solenoids in one week before I got a good one, I still keep two good ones as spare just in case. The problem is the solenoid itself, they have different brand names, get the more expensive heavy duty (about $20) the ones that cost $9.99 are garbage, good thing they are under warranty. If you have a dealer nearby get it from them, the price is not much different.
When you unplug the small wire on the solenoid you tested that the problem was not the ignition switch but the solenoid that got stuck, welded contacts, some times if you hit the solenoid it would release the contacts.
What I used to do was to disconnect the thick wire going to the starter and set it aside, when I had to start the vehicle, I opened the ignition, lift the hood and with the cable going to the starter, touch the terminal on the solenoid where the cable from the battery + connects, it will activate the starter and start the engine, after that I would put the cable on the side where it would not harm anything. That will help me to get to the autoparts store without burning out the starter.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a new starter and battery but all my 2000 ford expedition does is sound like a vacuum or sometimes nothing at all what could it be

Sorry to say. But pull the starter back off and look at the flywheel. Are the teeth on the flywheel eaten off? Replace the flywheel. It will take a day to do on the ground. It will cost $600 to $700 at a shop.

How to take a starter off a 200 ford expedition

  • Locate the starter on your Ford Expedition. Trace the positive battery cable until it splits. One branch of the cable will travel to the alternator and the other will go to the starter, which is about half the size of a football. The starter is made of two cylindrical pieces joined together, with one cylinder larger than the other. Generally, the starter is between the engine and the transmission. You can also look under your Expedition as well as under the air-intake manifold.
  • Use a floor jack and jack stands to raise the Expedition if the starter is located under the engine. Prop up one side of the frame by the front driver's-side door with the jack and place a jack stand to support the frame. Repeat the process for the front passenger side. Make sure all four legs of each jack stand are resting on the ground.
  • Disengage the negative battery cable on the Expedition. This rules out the chance of electrocution and also disengages the battery from the cooling fan, which sometimes can turn on even if the vehicle is turned off.
  • Expose the starter on your Expedition if there are any parts that prevent you from accessing it. For example, you may need to remove the air-intake manifold on some models and years of the

    If it just clicks when you try to start it then you need to check the battery and alternator. The anti-theft system wont even crank the solenoid.
