Possibly you have your main power lead hooked to the starter side of solenoid.

We have a 1994 ford bronco 4x4 eddie bauer, its been running fine and today it would not start. It has power, lights, doorchimesm, interior light all work. When you turn it over it just clicks. We tried to...


It definetly sounds like starter motor issue....there are 2 circuits within the starter motor, one is the pullin winding, that brings the gear close to the flywheel, and the motor windings that "cranks" the motor. It sounds like the pull in windings are working but the cranking circuit has failed.

This requires a starter motor replacement.......what you can do is "lightly" tap the starter motor with a blunt object and it might start once or twice, but a replacement is highly suggested.

1989 ford bronco full size 5.8 L V8 I tried to start it... the starter didnt stop turning and kept going even when i took the key out.. wouldnt stop and went until it killed my battery


Just answered identical problem in another make of vehicle. There are 2 possibilities for your problem. A bad Keyswitch and/or a bad Starter Solenoid. I assume your Bronco did not start, which is a good thing. You could have damaged the teeth on the flywheel if the engine started.

You may need to replace the Keyswitch. It is suppose to send a signal to the "tickler" wires on the Solenoid, connecting the Battery to the Starter. Either the Keyswitch shorted and continued to power the Solenoid, or the Solenoid shorted and Welded a connection after the Keyswitch was turned OFF.

Remove the small wires to the Solenoid. If the Solenoid is welded internally, the Battery will spark when you try to connect the Battery cables and the Starter will spin. This would mean the Keyswitch may still be good, do not reattach the small wires yet.

You would need a testlight or Voltmeter to test each small "tickler" wire by attaching the testlight to a Ground and the other end to the tickler wire. When you turn the Key to Start, the light should Glow. It should not Glow all the time.

My advice is to replace both the Keyswitch and the Solenoid because of the wear they encountered with the malfunction. Then when you get the Bronco to start, go to Autozone or Oreillys for a Starter draw test to see if the Starter was damaged by your other problems. Both of those Parts stores test and scan for free.

Zidane.tompsoni have a 1986 ford bronco 2 2.9 V6 im haveing some sorta electrical problem after driveing 3-8 minutes the fual pump will shut off and the truck dies i them try to start it up and the starter...


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

Starter wont stop unless battery diconnected! This looks like the place! (website that is) I am not a mechanic, but have had enough ford and other clunkers to know a thing or 3... I'l start with a brief...


All Fords use a starter solenoid that is not part of the starter.
It is usually about 3 inches in diameter, and on a fender well. It will have a large battery cable to it, and another from it to the starter.
It is controlled by 2 smaller wires.
Taking off the smaller wires should shut it off, even if the starter switch was shorted on. If that does not help, then the solenoid itself is shorted on, and needs replacement.

I have a 1987 ford bronco and will not start replaced the pick up coil and ignition module and coil and still not getting spark to start now I am stumped can some one please help?


check the wires to the module,im not too sure what color wire to check,its been 5 years since i worked on that issue on a ford truck,but i think its a white wire with a black stripe-basically power from the key-also check the fusible links by the starter solenoid on the inside fender

Bronco wont start.


Try hitting the starter with a hammer but not too hard,if it then starts then the brushes in the starter are bad,usually only 2 of the 4 go bad and they dont make contact,the brush kit is only $20.00 and real easy to change,a new rebuilt starter is about $90.00,my starter went out in the middle of winter on my 94 Bronco when i was parked over a water puddle,boy was i wet!..Now for the other persons problem it may be the ignition switch at the base of the column which is about a $10.00 part and 2 screws

1987 bronco will not start


Ford used alot of fuseable links, mostly around starter selenoid, look around for them and everyone you find try pulling them apart if there bad or burnt they will pull apart and there is your problem. If you don't find one burnt, than its got to be in the wire comming from the switch, heck there might be one of them fuseable links in that wire too.I never had to go that far to find a burnt one it was always around the selenoid or starter.

Check the wires on starter solenoid to make sure they are in the right spot. Sounds like the ignition wire terminal on the solenoid is getting constant power. I hope this helps!
