I know this sounds stupid, tap the fender soliniod with a small hammer when someone is trying to crank the engine, it will start. The clicking is a jam in the solinoid, one tap and it should release. I told a few people this on here and they didn't beleive me, but all have sent me mails thanking me. Good luck bud,
Regards, Dave, Let me know

When you installed the starter you may have inadvertently put the gears in a bind. Make sure the bendix meshes properly with the flywheel. The bendix is the small gear on the starter that slides out and connects with the flywheel when the ignition key is turned.

If your battery is more than 5 years old should replace it anyway and yes it could be the starter or poor connections. All 3 have the same effect.

I have a 1994 3.8 V6 ford mustang. it will not start at all. the battery is good, and the started is good. what could cuse it not to startor turn over?

Sounds like the only thing left is the solenoid. Follow the red battery cable from the battery and it will lead you to the solenoid. You can take an old screwdriver and momentarily jump across the two large connections. Make sure the car is not in gear if its a manual tranny. You should hear the starter crank. You still could have issues where the solenoid power is not getting to the soleniod to actuate it when you turn the key.

I am working on a 2004 GT Mustang. Batery is fine.

Hi, I know this might sound silly but check if the connection to the solenoid is clean and properly secured. The other thing that you also can look at is the earth connection from the battery to the body. If that is all fine, the only thing left is the solenoid.

Spray some wet grafite spray in the key slot,plenty of spray and work the key back and forth.Remove the battery cables and clean the battery terminals ,and the battery post real shiney,and put them back on.Make sure you have good battery voltage also.Don`t take it for granted that the battery is good,take it off and have it checked and or charged on a good slow(2 amp) charge.Now when you are sure the battery is good ,and the connections are good,then if the starter clicks,grab the shifter and pull it up and down without moving out of park,while you hold the starter engaged.If it starts then the neutal safty switch is bad.Now if it keeps on clicking(it will be the starter clicking)replace the starter.You can lightly tap the starter with ahammer while trying to start the van,and start it,but the starter will need to be replaced.If I can help you any further,let me know.>>>

your starter,solenoid or ignition is no good. but my first choice,i think your solenoid is shorted because when you hook up the battery,it cranks but does not start.that means your ignition switch is still working.
