Sounds like either your starter solenoid is bad or the starter is bad.

My 98 ford explorer wont start all the sudden, just one click...all the lights and stereo work...just suddenly wont start...what do i do


One single click every time you turn the key to the crank position is a pretty good indicator that the starter is bad. You can confirm this by checking for power on the small red wire while a helper holds the key in the crank position and making sure that the large red wire has battery power as well (this only works when the vehicle will not start). If both of those check out fine than replacing the starter will likely fix the problem.

98 explorer quit starting. I can turn the key and there is power to everything but when you try to start, nothing. No clicks, no sounds, nothing. Its like it it sends no power to the starter. Like when you...


It could just be your starter... Check for power at the battery cable AT the starter then check if the small wire that also connects to the starter gets power when you crank it. If so it's most likely your starter.

The 98 explorer starts fine, most of the time.


Sound like you have a starter that starting to go out, the easy way to check it is when it only clicks have some one try to start it and you tap on the starter if it starts replace it, starter going bad.

2002 ford explorer wont start even after new battery...


Before you go changing out the starter check for a burnt out fusible link going to the starter it will look like a wire but acts as a fuse and they burn in two just like a fuse. The symptoms you just describe are those of a burnt fusible link.
