SOURCE: my 1966 lincoln wont start, have replaced solonoid

Have you checked the polarity in the postive or negtive battrey cables. It sounds as if you are not getting a clean contact. Check them throughly it must be in that area.

I have a 87 f150 4x4 wont start with the key has new starter,solonoid switch and new ignition switch but it starts fine when I jump the solonoid

If you are saying that the vehicle will turn over only when jump started and nothing when not connected to another vehicle then I would check the earth connection from battery!

1978 super beetle won't crank. battery good. turn key, hear faint humming sound, nothing from engine

think you may have a faulty starter motor here ,this year vehicle will be of the pre engaged type so no seperate heavy duty solonoid unlike older cars ,i would expect a click of the solonoid and nothing if the starter has burnt out but its possible that the solonoid on top of the starter has failed but without a look myself and only a description i cannot diagnose correctly .Try some jump leads just to be sure it isnt a flat battery then check the engine earth to chassis cable then remove the starter motor and have it checked out

It sure sounds like the switch, but it may be the key cylinder binding. If the key turns to the same place it used to then replace the switch. If it dosen't then replace the key cylinder.

Turn the key and nothing happens , I have lights but the car wont start

Not sure about yours, but on models that year, if you have lights the battery is good. I would check to see if the starter has a solonoid that is bad.
I don't want to tell you to do this because it isn't really safe and it isn't my car, but "back in the day" we would use a screwdriver to jump the terminals and bypass the solonoid to get the starter to work. Like I said, if you don't feel confident, PLEASE don't do it. It might also be the ignition switch.

F 150 starts and starter stays engaged unplug alternator starts ok but no charge

2 problems, first you have bad starter or starter relay for starter staying engaged, keep alt plugged in has nothing to do with starter staying engauged, to test starter relay, jump at relay bat + post with red/bk wire on solonoid, if cranks over without staying engaged, then not relay or starter but rather in your ign switch, ford had bad problems with ign switch some years ago doing that

My car won't start, when turning the key in the ignition, it wont turn over. I just got a new alternator, battery, and tune-up? So what is the problem?

Go to the solonoid on the starter, Jump from large post to small post, (assuming you have a charged battery) starter will turn over motor. If it does not you have a bad starter. If it does check ign switch and wiring.

The solonoid clicks just fine, but the starter flywheel doens't

is it auto? if not drop it into 2nd release hand/park brake and rock the vehicle back and forth this essencialy does the same . if auto look for where the solonoid is attatched somewhere underneath theres a large (flush) grub screw. tap with light hammer just between solonoid attatchment and screw if problem persists have the starter bench tested! hope this helps AK
