    The starter relay is on the left side (facing engine). It has the large battery cables going to it.



    What you described sounds like a bad starter relay?

Starter motor car won't start


I am guessing that you already suspect the starter motor. If the battery is fully charged and the car won't crank over that could be the problem. You could try jumping across the starter solenoid first, if you can get to it and see if maybe it is just the solenoid. You could take the starter to a place like AutoZone and they can test it for you.

Ignition problem... No signal from ignition to solenoid...run a starter draw test to confirm starter is ok --- You can run your jump wires to a remote starter button or switch to get around it for now.

I hope this helps.

Have a 98 ford explorer and it won't start tryed to jump it nothen. Put a starter in and still won't click ove it sounds like it dead but if I play with the power distreber box I'm dash lights...


it could very well be the starter solinoid mounted on fender under hood. most fords are setup this way. to test it -- You could use jumper cable to jump the two large studs on the solenoid together, which should make the starter crank the engine, assuming the engine can rotate freely. If jumping the solenoid works, then the solinoid is probably bad. have a good day !!

You may want to start looking for a fusible link that might have burned.Sometimes they are located down by the starter and sometimes under the hood depending on the manufacturer. A fusible link looks like a plain wire but is indeed a fuse link and acts just like a regular fuse sometimes you will be able to see where it burnt through the insulation and sometimes you wont thats why i pull genlty on the wires and see which one starts to stretch.
