Question about Ford Mustang

2 Answers

I replaced the solenoid when it wouldn't engage the starter, now after working a few times it won't disengage and the starter keeps running, after beating on the solenoid it will drop out. Took this one back to the Ford dealership, they gave me another new one, it has done the same thing after about five or six starts. ????

This just a suggestion...not a fix..but from what you are telling me and i find it hard to believe that all ford solenoids could be defective, buts it seems to be acting like when a person continues to turn the key and hold it in start position and not release it..could it be you start switch contacts are sticking? you dont have to rate this.

STARTER MOTOR ENGAGING ALL THE TIME


I would suspect the ignition switch. Power has to be getting to the starter solenoid to activate it. See if you can disconnect the power going into the switch, If the problem stops,.... solved. If problem persists, look for loose wire that could be shorting at the solenoid.

sounds like your fuel filter might be plugged causing the engine shutdown.
sounds like the solenoid on the starter is sticking causing your starter to stay engaged and powered up. the starter will stay powered up and will continue to spin until the starter solenoid is disengaged.
one other area to look at is the ignition switch. if that is bad it will continue to send a power signal to the starter solenoid keeping it engaged. so, you may want try unplugging that first, while your starter is running. if continues to run, then i would say it is the starter solenoid and not the switch. good luck

Turn key and starter stays engaged. Turn key off


The starter solenoid is failing. Sooner or later the starter will probably not disengage after you turn the key off. Then you'll have to disconnect the battery in a hurry. It's no fun. And at that point the whole starter will probably have to be replaced. Depending on how long it takes you to unhook the battery. Trust me. That is no way to start your day. It's really bad for your blood pressure. Good Luck.

Ignition problem with 95 carmy


Seems to be a problem with the solenoid on the starter. After the engine starts, and you let the key go to the "run" position, the solenoid is supposed to disengage. If it stays engaged, it keeps the battery to starter contacts engaged. You have to remove the starter to get to the solenoid -- usually it is best to replace both the starter and the solenoid as a unit.

Starter trying to restart while idoling


Sounds like either an ignition problem. (Switch, not the lock cylinder) or a short somewhere between the switch and the starter relay.

1989 Crown Victoria Starter Solenoid Jams On


Inside the starter is a bendix drive. This is what engages the flywheel. There is a return spring that disengages the bendix when the soleniod power is cut. I know you said you had new starters put in , but there still remains a problem with the starter. You can replace just the bendix drive. If you are going to take it to a shop the labor to just remove the starter and replace the bendix will probably cost you as much as a starter. If you replace the starter make sure you use a reputable company that remanfactures the part. There are good one and bad ones out there. You get what you pay for.
