Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Replaced neutral safety switch on clutch pedal
THERE IS A STARTER SOLENOID LOCATED UNDER THE HOOD ON THE RIGHT FENDER WELL. CHECK TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE BATTERY VOLTAGE ON THE LARGE RED WIRE ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE RELAY. IF SO USE A TEST LIGHT ON THE SMALL TERMINAL, YOU SHOULD HAVE POWER TO THIS WIRE WHEN HELD IN START POSITION HAVE SOMEONE HOLD THE KEY IN START WITH CLUTCH PEDAL DEPRESSED WHILE YOU CHECK FOR VOLTAGE AT THE RELAY WITH A TEST LIGHT. IF YOU HAVE POWER THEN THE SOLENOID IS BAD

there should be a relay switch on the passanger side in the floor board up to the firewall or look in the manual for it.... if your car wont start cause its starvin for gas it could be the fix...find the switch or button and press it it restarts your fuel sending unit

Clutch Pedal Position (CPP) Switch
The clutch pedal position switch (CPP) is controlled by the clutch pedal. Depressing the clutch pedal manually closes the CPP switch and allows engine cranking. The CPP switch will also deactivate the speed control system.

On the firewall is the starter motor relay. There are 2 large battery sized cables to it, and 1 smaller ( 16 AWG ) wire that is orange or orange with a stripe ( forget the color, want to say white or tan ).
When you turn the key to the start position, check the smaller gauge wire for +12 V. The case should be ground. If you do not get +12 on the orange wire, try starting the truck in neutral ( apply the parking brake, chock the wheel, etc normal safety precautions ). Test for +12 V at the small wire. This is the output of the DTR ( Digital Transmission Range ) sensor or in common terms the Neutral switch. The start position on the ign switch runs through the DTR to the starter motor relay coil.
If you have a stick, the DTR is replaced by the Clutch Pedal Position Switch ( clutch must be pushed in to start ).
If you have power to this ( at the times the truck won't start ) next is to check the both battery cable ends to see if they are corroded and making intermittent contact ( not probable but possible ).

SOURCE: 1990 HONDA ACCORD WON'T TURN OVER TO START BUT IT WILL ROLL START. I HAVE CHANGED THE ALTERNATOR AND TESTED THE IGNITION SWITCH STARTER RELAY SEEMS FINE CLUTCH SWITCH SEEMS FINE MAIN RELAY IS FINE
About the only thing you didn't mention was the starter itself. You could have it tested. But before that, try to see if you have power on the small wire to starter solenoid on the starter, when key is held in cranking position. Pull the small wire off and check for power with a multimeter or a testlight while someone holds the key in crank. This is the signal wire from ignition switch that closes the elec. contacts inside solenoid so the starter gets full power from the battery to spin. (This wire also is in the circuit with the clutch switch and the starter relay.) If you have power on this wire in crank, it is very likely the starter is bad. If there is no power, check that circuit out. It is losing power somewhere from switch to starter solenoid. Good luck.
