Question about 1994 Ford Mustang
Starter won't activate. Tried to remove it yesterday. during that process I shorted it some where and then remembered that I should disconnect the battery. Did that and cleaned the terminals. Decided what the heck, I'll reconnect the battery and give it a try. Starter kicked right in and car fired up like usual. Starter spun strong just like normal. Tried it one more time after that an no problem. Wife drove car this morning and it started no problem. Parked car and it wouldn't start again. Tried cleaning the terminals again. That didn't do it.
When you turn the key on, you get the usual fuel pump buzz. Then when you turn further to engage the starter, you get a click and then nothing.
Lights, waringing dings, radio all work well.
Removing the starter is a real pain so I don't want to do it just for practice. If there is another problem, I want to jump right to that.
Does this sitution sound like a solenoid problem or something else?
In that year , if it is the one on the picture, the solenoid is part of the starter, , check for a ground connection from the battery to the engine block, if the battery cables were to corroded some time that corrosion goes in to the cable and lower the cable conductivity, a good solution could be replacing the ground wire that you can get it any auto-part store
