Question about 1992 Ford Bronco

1 Answer

Selenoid I got power going from the red wire to the starter selenoid, but no power to the 2 other screws on it. Its a brand new starter selenoid. What the hell. Ignition does nothing and I'm getting pissed. Someone help or I'm setting it fire! You wonder why Broncos were discontinued.

The positive battery terminal cable goes to the input side of the solenoid along with another smaller wire that powers the rest of the car. The smallest terminal has one even-smaller wire that operates the solenoid from the ignition switch 'start' position. The output side has another cable which goes to the starter power terminal.

What am i missing? no power to starter selenoid.


is the immobilizer off ? any other device that stops power to start or run the engine. modifications alarm upgrades etc these can all stop the power to the starter. even ecu being switched off as ecu has a shunt so it can handle the power drain when engine is being started.

I have a 93 ford f150. I'm switching the starter from one with a selenoid to no selenoid. Having major problems. Can you help


Use a Ford remote starter solenoid, here is a Standard brand part number and where to order it cheap.

Below is a simple wiring diagram of a remote starter solenoid, since you say the new starter will not have a solenoid hook directly to the starter B+ battery post. Mount the remote solenoid as close as possible to the starter, use bulk battery cable or see if they sell it in made up sizes of different lengths. Use the right color cable which is red (B+)

Where is the starter located on 95 dodge dakota engine. I need to change one and am not very mechanical.


hi, to locate the starter follow the big live lead from the battery this will go onto the selenoid on the starter motor the starter looks like a small cylinder this is the selenoid next to a big cylinder the size of a big beer can, so just follow the main live wire and it will go towards the bottom of the engine and then it goes to the starter the starter will have 2 wires going to it the thick red live wire and a smaller push fit wire.

let me know if you have problems finding it and ill do my best to assist you further ok

Intermitent starter problem. Occasionally once ignition switch engaged grating sound noo start, then ignition swith rotated agin starter engaged - normal start. As explained intermitemt problem.


Beat on the starter with a hammer while someone tries to crank....if if cranks, you need a new starter selenoid. You can also bypass the selenoid by jump starting it with a screw drive to conduct much current between the two bolts on the starter selenoid. Be careful not to touch, unless your full of ****.

Cannot fire the starter. Think it is an electrical issue. Is there a fuse that I need to check?


Hi!

My name is Tom and I trust I can be of service to you.

I will now asume by "firing the starter" you mean the car will not turn over. I will also assume that you have checked the battery and it is able to make contact with the starter selenoid. The starter selenod is the salami shaped unit which is on top of the starter.

You will find that there are three contacts on the back of the selenoid. One is the ground to the engine block and the other are leads for the battery.

I will also assume that you do not want to take the starter off.(taking it off is the simplist way to check if the starter is bad or the starter seloid).

Back to checking the starter. Under the car looking up to the sunlight from the starter point of view, you will see a cable that runs from the starter selenoid to the battery. Also make sure that the ground wire(the wire which attaches to the engine block) is clean.

You now know that you have battery power to engauge the selenoid and the starter if both are working properly.

Attempt to start the car. If it does, you have solved the problem. If not,using a pair of jumper cables, attach one to ground and the red one to "short" the curcuit.

This is done by placing the red jumper cable clamp accross both non-grounded leads off the startrer selenoid. If you hear a click, then the starter seleniod is working. If you hear a click and the car turns over your starter and seleniod are both good.
If you do not get a ckick or a start then the starter and attached selenoid are both bad and need replacing.

I trust this will be of help to you please call or write and I will be happy to give you further assistance.

Intermittent starting problem. Turning key does nothing.


Sounds like you could have a faulty switch, but I would check the starter selenoid first. Sometimes when the selenoid goes bad it will behave in the way you describe. If, with your key in the on position, (not on start), you can jump power from the hot wire, (positive), post on your selenoid to the hot wire that goes from the selenoid to the starter and the starter then engages, but doesn't otherwise, it is a selenoid problem. Good Luck! I hope you find this very helpful!

My pick-up truck wont start it had a bad starter so i replaced the starter, then the battery died....but in the same day...i decided to just use other truck and give it a jump start, but my truck was only...


Based on your description, the starter selenoid is not getting enough juice (current) to pull up solidly. So, causes are:
1. Low battery voltage
2. bad connection of battery+ at the battery or at the selenoid terminal.
3. bad ground connection between the starter selenoid and the truck chassis.

If you want to bypass the selenoid, you can place a jumper cable on the "FAR" side of the selenoid (the side that feeds the starter). Then momentarily touch the other end of the jumper to the battery + terminal.

If the starter cranks, then you have confirmed the selenoid as problematic. Remove it and either replace it or disassemble and clean it.

1987 bronco will not start


Ford used alot of fuseable links, mostly around starter selenoid, look around for them and everyone you find try pulling them apart if there bad or burnt they will pull apart and there is your problem. If you don't find one burnt, than its got to be in the wire comming from the switch, heck there might be one of them fuseable links in that wire too.I never had to go that far to find a burnt one it was always around the selenoid or starter.

Starter selenoid


Remove the 2 solenoid retainning srews, then rotate the solenoid to unlock it from the starter housing, you must remove the starter from the car to replace the solenoid.
