1990 Ford econoline Van run's but when I shut it off and try starting it again it acts like the batterys dead! After awhile I come back and it starts right up! What could be causing the battery to act...


Make sure the battery is good, then clean the battery posts and cable ends, and make sure the negative ground from the battery to the engines block is clean and secure.

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.

When go to start the van you have to play with it , it will start after you try to start it up as the key is turning toward you and not away from you. what do I need 1985 e350 van


Assuming the vehicle starts fine once you find the "magic spot", we can rule out the starter, solenoid, relay and power. In the 1985 there are generally only 2 causes for this...
(1) The ignition switch (replace it)
(2) The wiring connections from the switch through the steering column.
The switch is the most likely, and also an easy and inexpensive repair. If the wiring connections are suspect than it may be a bit more complex as Ford ran the wiring in "loop" series and can be a real pain to trace. I suggest to replace the ignition switch and check all connections and wiring to make sure nothing is grounding out or modified by a previous owner.

My 1989 ecoline 150 starter fires when u connect the batteryreplaced starter solinoid and ignition switch and keyswitch still starts no key and will still run after van starts


look for shorted wires leading from your starter solenoid to your ignition switch.
the wires are shorted "on" before they get to your ignition switch.
separate the burned/shorted wires: (most likely under the dash) then tape them so they don't touch.

Are plugs and wires good? Did you check distributor? Firing order correct-timing set right? Maybe some of the new parts are faulty? Are grounds all secure and are fuses good?
