Question about 1991 Ford F250
Three possible problems - solenoid, starter or cable. I'm not sure what engine you have. I just replaced starter in mustang with 5.0L engine. If you have solenoid mounted on side of engine compartment; turn ignition to run position and put a screwdriver across the two large terminals (make sure you don't touch the side of the engine compartment). If starter cranks over then you might have a bad solenoid. If starter doesn't crank over then you may have a bad starter.
If you have a meter; see if you have voltage on terminals of solenoid. One side of the large terminals will have voltage on it with ignition turned off. If not then you have bad cable or poor connection between battery and solenoid. Pull cable off and clean terminal. Get someone to turn the ignition switch to the start position to see if you have voltage on the other large terminal. If you do then your solenoid is probably good. The next place to check is the starter; if you can get to it. Get someone to turn the ignition switch to see if you have voltage. If you have voltage then your starter may be bad and if you don't then you may have a bad cable or bad connection on terminal. If you replace starter make sure the mating surface is clean before you put new one on to ensure a good ground. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Starter is most likely locked up.

Tips for a great answer:
- there is no fuel
- the fuel pump needs checking/replacing
- the spark plugs need replacing
- high tension wires need replacing
2. when switching the ignition there is only a single click or no sound
- the battery is flat/needs charging or replacement
- a fuse for one of the ignition components is blown and needs replacing
Hope these help in finding the cause or getting a clearer picture of the problem.
