Question about 1989 Ford F 350
Tightened the flywheel and now if the starter is used for more than 30 seconds it shorts out the Solenoid. I even went to ford and bought their 60.00 version and it lasted 20-30 seconds..
You shouldn't be holding the starter engaged for that long. have the starter checked and see if it is pulling more amps then it should too

all I had to do on a sable was to replace the belt but look at the battery there should be a wire coming from the battery going to another solenoid mounted under the hood and then going down to the starter get a 12 volt tester and see if you have power going to this solenoid cause it could be dead on one end and not going down to the starter

The battery cable goes on the large post nearest the battery,and all others,except for one small wire made to fit the small terminal.The cable going to the starter goes on the large post on the other side of where you put the battery cable on,the opposite side

I have provided an image that will assist you and it will connect like so;
1. Connection 1 should have the Pos. (+) battery cable and all of the wires with the large eyelet connectors from the wiring harness connected to it, except for the large cable that runs down to the starter.
2. Connection 2 should only have the large cable going down to the starter connected to it, and there should be no other wire connected there.
3. Connection 3 is the "S" terminal on the starter solenoid, and it is the wire with the small push on connector that is hot only when the key is in the "start" position, usually it is a red wire with a blue stripe, but that is not always the case.
4. Connection 4 is the "I" connection on the starter solenoid and it feeds current back into the ignition, and it is not used on a lot of vehicles after 1981, but if your vehicle has it it will be a small push on connector that will not have any power from it at all, and it will usually be a black wire with a white stripe, but that is not always so.

just pull the pan and it's the solenoid next to the linkage it's a round canister with two 90degree prongs when you get done pull the pos battery cable this should reset the computer and take care of any codes.
