Use a test light and check at the starter solenoid and see if the ignition start wire gets hot when the key is turned to start. If it does check to see if current then goes thru the solenoid to the starter. If it does check to see if current gets to the starter, if it gets to the starter the starter is bad. If no current to the starter or out of solenoid the solenoid is bad. If current does not get to the solenoid when switch is turned, check and see if the current goes thru the neutral safety switch (Clutch switch if not automatic). If the current doesn't go thru the switch replace the switch. If you are not getting current to the switch in the first place check the ignition switch. If the current doesn't come from the ignition switch to the safety switch replace the ignition switch.

Had tha same problem with mine. Lift up on the steering wheel as you turn the key. I know it sounds crazy but there is something in the column on those trucks that doesn't allow the key to engage.

This is usually a bad starter solenoid replace the starter solenoid it is located on the fender wall near the battery, be sure to disconnect the positive battery terminal before disconnecting the connection to the starter solenoid in order to prevent sparking that can cause a battery explosion.

Daniel, If battery is known to be good, could be bad connections at battery, starter/solenoid, or ground on engine/frame, battery cables also could be bad with build up of corrosion internally. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

2000 F-150 4x4 with 4.6 engine has hot battery and good starter but sometimes will only click when turning the ingnition and not turn over.


This sounds like a bad starter but theres a common problem with these trucks the main battery cable that goes to starter has bad connection at that terminal going to starter, tell you what have someone hold the key in the crank postion and you pull on the big cable wire at the starter and see if it starts or if it sparks, to repair you can replace the end or replace the cable, if this doesnt help then see if theres a soleniod and check that but i would bet its the cable good luck. let me know what happens.

Starter wires geting hot while cranking and starter drags


Check to make sure the Starter is bolted up tight first. Then check to make sure there is a good ground between the engine block and the battery. If cable connections are ok you will probably need to replace your starter.

What type of response are you getting when you turn the ignition. Is it trying to roll over or are you only geting a click noise and no engine sound? I would say that it is most likely the starter, but some more info woult help me be accurate in seeing what is wrong. Thanks!!
