Check the battery cables for corrosion near the battery terminal end. Sometimes it builds up under the rubber insulation. I would check the ground wire that runs from the battery to the engine block.

My Transit starter will not turn over engine,have changed starter but nothing from the key.Have charged the battery,put jump leads to starter and only got the solinoid to spin????? can you help please.
