Question about Ford E-Series Van
Our 1989 Econoline Van was starting just fine. When I got off work and tried to start it, it wouldn't even turn over. It sounded like the ignition was just turning. We replaced the starter solenoid, ignition switch, & ignition lock & key. The battery is good, but it doesn't seem to be getting any power to the starter, ignition, or anything. What else can we do?

I have found that Ford products are very sensitive to poor grounds and poor connections at the battery or starter/ starter solenoid. Clean all grounds and terminal connectors really through. Don't just look and judge them to be clean. After market add on battery clamps will corrode where you put the cable into them. Be sure to take them apart and clean there also. Also ck to be sure your battery is putting out the cranking amps it is
rated at. If not sure take it to a shop and have it tested. Good luck.

Solenoid was not mentioned as replaced.
If it was not part of new starter...that's the culprit.
Ignition switch (smaller wire) activates the solenoid (heavier wire) which in turn activates the (high current) starter.
