96 chevy silverado diesel randomly dies and usually restart immediatly, 2 days ago replaced ignition solenoid and now glow plug light on dash wont come on. checked fuses, they are all good. Truck runs very...


for diesel to stop it has to be a fuel related problem
it will not be fuel flow problem as it restarts immediately so it will be an electrical problem connected to the stop solenoid
the stop solenoid is a power on at all times until the ignition is turned off at which point the power is cut and a spring in the solenoid pushes the plunger to the no fuel position
logically that would point to a broken wire but even that is not the answer as it would not restart immediately
which points to contacts in the ignition switch
if the contacts or wire on the back of the switch is faulty , then the power to the solenoid could put through a high resistance in the switch points /contacts and that drop in power would trigger a stop situation
recycling the switch makes for a good contact for a period
I would be spending time in the switch and harness connections to the switch

1990 7.3 ford diesel wont shut down


You need to determine if the problem is in the ignition switch or the fuel shut off solenoid in the Injector pump. As you stand in front of the truck facing the engine, the wire that goes to the FRONT connector on the DRIVERS side top of the injector pump will be the shut off solenoid.

turn the key to "run" and then disconeect that wire, if it "clicks' then the problem is most likely the ignition switch. If it doesn't then run a jumper wire from the positive post of a bettery to the connection. If it clicks then the problem is the ignition switch, If it doesn't, then the solenoid has failed. the fuel shut off solenoid is available and not hard to change. Just be sure to pay attention to to the spring and how it is assembled. You can purchase the fuel shut off solenoid from mid west fuel injection, there may be other places but I know they have it. Ignition switch should be available form most any auot parts store.

Ryes i have a 1985 ford ranger pick up and the problem is the key switch when I turn the key to the off position the truck keeps running


This is either a bad solenoid, or the ignition switch itself is bad.
Locate the solenoid which on fords is usually on the fender in the engine compartment on the driver side. It looks a bit like a diamond and has 4 bolts, one going to the battery, one to the ignition, starter, and I believe the coil. Locate the one coming from the ignition switch (where key goes) and see if it is sending power with the key off. If it is the ignition is bad and needs to be replaced. If it is not, check the wire going from the solenoid to the coil. If it has power the solenoid is bad, just make sure you check the other wire 1st cause if the ignition is bad the solenoid will have power going to the coil when off.
Hope thats not confusing.

Where is the fuel pump cut off switch located exactly and how could I reset it.


The fuel pump relay is located in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) under the hood. The inside top of the PDC cover has a label showing relay and fuse location. The relay supplies battery voltage to the fuel pump. A buss bar in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) supplies voltage to the solenoid side and contact side of the relay. The PCM controls the fuel pump relay by switching the ground path for the solenoid side of the relay on and off. The PCM turns the ground path off when the ignition switch is in the Off position. When the ignition switch is in the On position, the PCM energizes the fuel pump. If the crankshaft position sensor does not detect engine rotation, the PCM de-energizes the relay after approximately one second.

Fuel Cut Solenoid: Testing and Inspection
An inoperative shutdown solenoid can cause a no-start condition. Disconnect solenoid harness connector and with ignition switch in the "ON"
position momentarily touch solenoid harness connector to solenoid connector. If a "click" sound is heard, the solenoid circuit is operating
properly. If "click" is not heard, the system should be diagnosed as follows:
1. With test lamp connected to ground and the ignition switch in the "ON" position, backprobe the shutdown harness connector. If the test lamp
does not light check for open circuit form the ignition switch to the solenoid.
2. If the test lamp lights, check the ground circuit between solenoid stud and injection pump cover to see if connectors are clean and tight. If the
connections are not clean and tight repair and retest.
3. If the ground circuit is "OK", remove the injection pump cover. Connect a jumper wire between solenoid ground connector and ground. With
the ignition switch in the "ON" position, momentarily touch shutdown solenoid harness connector to shutdown solenoid terminal. If solenoid
operates, check for internal injection pump problem.
4. If the solenoid will not operate, replace the shutdown solenoid.

Fuel Cut Solenoid: Service and Repair
REMOVE OR DISCONNECT:
1. Remove pump cover.
2. Terminal contact nuts.
3. Solenoid.
INSTALL OR CONNECT:
1. Solenoid in the pump cover.
- On the shutdown solenoid, make sure that the linkage is free.
- On the cold advance solenoid, make sure that the plunger is centered so that it will contact the check ball in the fitting.
2. Insulating washers on the terminal studs.
3. Terminal nuts and tighten to 1 Nm (9 in lbs).
4. Pump cover.
5. Inspect solenoid operation prior to installing the pump cover. Use a 12 volt DC power source.

Ignition switch


Next time this happens leave the key in the on position, open the hood and lift the fuel solenoid link (between the fuel solenoid and the injection pump) up. If it stays up the truck will start and run. The solenoid is shot but that might be a symptom of set of bad starter contacts.

The contacts start to pit bad enough that the power back feeds through fuel solenoid. Larry B is a good source for the parts to fix these problems: http://www.fostertruck.com/dodge/default.htm
