Have you checked the polarity in the postive or negtive battrey cables. It sounds as if you are not getting a clean contact. Check them throughly it must be in that area.

I have a 87 f150 4x4 wont start with the key has new starter,solonoid switch and new ignition switch but it starts fine when I jump the solonoid


If you are saying that the vehicle will turn over only when jump started and nothing when not connected to another vehicle then I would check the earth connection from battery!

HELP! i don't know why my car wont start!


YOUR STARTER & SOLONOID, ONE UNIT, MUST BE BAD ! WHEN YOU TURN KEY TO START THE BATTERY SHOULD ENERGIZE THE SOLONOID WHICH INGAGES THE STARTER INTO THE FLYWHEEL AND CRANKS THE ENGINE TO START. IF THIS DOESN'T HAPPEN, REPLACE THE UNIT !

My 92 lincoln town car will not start i have replaced the starter, the neutral safety switch and the battery but when i turn key nothing happens but can jump starter and will crank


Yes there is a starter relay in the wiring diagram.
The yellow and lite blue wire goes from the starter solenoid to the relay. There is a yellow wire from the relay to a 30amp fuse. The key switch powers thru the neutral safety switch and then powers the relay on.

1978 super beetle won't crank. battery good. turn key, hear faint humming sound, nothing from engine


think you may have a faulty starter motor here ,this year vehicle will be of the pre engaged type so no seperate heavy duty solonoid unlike older cars ,i would expect a click of the solonoid and nothing if the starter has burnt out but its possible that the solonoid on top of the starter has failed but without a look myself and only a description i cannot diagnose correctly .Try some jump leads just to be sure it isnt a flat battery then check the engine earth to chassis cable then remove the starter motor and have it checked out

Why wont my Lincoln ls start? There is just a click when I turn the key.


The click usually indicates a low battery or corrosion at the battery terminals. Try removing the cables (Negative first) and cleaning the battery terminals and cable connections. Reconnect the cables (Negative last), check and replenish the water in the battery cells if yours is a serviceable battery, and then try a "jump" start. If this fails, chances are that you need a new battery.

Turn the key and nothing happens , I have lights but the car wont start


Not sure about yours, but on models that year, if you have lights the battery is good. I would check to see if the starter has a solonoid that is bad.
I don't want to tell you to do this because it isn't really safe and it isn't my car, but "back in the day" we would use a screwdriver to jump the terminals and bypass the solonoid to get the starter to work. Like I said, if you don't feel confident, PLEASE don't do it. It might also be the ignition switch.

Our 2001 lincoln ls was running fine, then all of a sudden now it wont start. we have replaced the battery, and everything else turns on, it is just hard to turn the key and it wont start--and it was all...


I would love to answer this question but I am having the same issue. I have a 2000 LS with the V8..replaced the battery about 2 weeks ago and last night I went to go home and it won't start. All the bells ring when I turn the key but when I turn to the right to "start" position, nothing. No clicking, no noise at all. I called the Lincoln dealership and we went over the alarm light "not flashing" and shifter position. They have no advice other than "tow it in".
The vehicle had been running fine.

Lincoln Mark VIII wont start


if you tried to jump the veh. when the batt. died, then you may have fried a fusable link in the harness. use a test lite to (CAREFULLY) look for voltage leading away from the batt. also you may want to check and see if someone can hear the relay click on as you try to start. (it is sometimes hard to hear it, so you want minimum back ground noise). good luck!
