If the starter motor remained engaged when you released the key, the underlying cause is likely a bad starter solenoid (first item the positive battery cable connects to after the battery) Remaining engaged, can damage the starter itself. Replace the solenoid, check the starter and you should be finished. (Or also replace the starter if it was damaged)
If the starter was stuck and not engaging, the bendix drive inside the starter has failed...In that case it's best to change the starter as even though it's replaceable, generally by the time it needs replacement the starter is worn in other areas and would need complete overhaul.

1989 Ford Econoline 150 Van will not start


Most all vehicles have main power cable to starter solenoid which is mounted on the starter where the power cable to the switch connects OR there is a separate heavy gauge red wire connected to the positive post of the battery that leads to the ignition switch. Also check your ground cable by connecting battery jumper cable to negative post on battery and other end to metal frame of van.

I have a 1984 ford e van, 351, 4 barrel, i can leave it in the laneway running and wont stall, when i take it on the road, the van loses power, then stalls, and the battery is dead, i unhooked the battery...


sounds like you have a fule pump fault,,,the battery fault is strange??
unless the pump has a short on it, draining the battery,,,
the alternator will very soon pack up if you keep running it without the battery hooked up

Is it completely dead? If so, check the battery, battery connections, and the alternator (you can have them checked for free at most major auto parts dealers). Also check if you still get lights, radio, door alarm, etc. - if you do then it is likely not the battery. If you have checked the battery and connections and they are good and you hear a clicking sound while cranking that is your starter motor which may be bad (or the starter solenoid may be bad). If you can crank it and it sounds like it wants to start but wont 'catch' then this is usually the spark plugs failing to provide an adequate spark which means you should check the plugs and the wires.

Mini van wont start


It does sound like the battery. other items will work on a low battery but as kenh said there isn't enough amps to power the starter... it needs alot to turn over the motor. before you replace the battery you should test that the alternator is working properly. there is a simple test for it but i'm told as a safety issue that it's best left to a mechanic.
