    did the motor come with a solenoid? were there any shims that came out with the old starter? If yes, did you put them back in?

What do you mean when you say "the starter has power"? Are you saying that you can hear the motor turning over???
And, Is this Escort an Automatic ?

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.

94 ford escort sedan, not turning over after first freeze of year. changed out battery and allsystems are a go, radio turns on lights come on everything but when you turn the key......nothin. it doesnt...


Probably a bad starter relay or connection at the starter. The relay is one of the two located on the right hand under hood at the lower edge of windshield. Listen for a clicking sound when the key is turned. The small wire hooked to the starter could be corroded causing a lack of connection, you can reach it by putting you hand in behind the intake manifold and reach down, you can feel the starter and wiring, wiggle this wire, then try to start again. Hope this helps, let me know.

2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. Won't start. no sound from starter. Not sure I hear the fuel pump start up. Does this car have a reset switch for the fuel pump like the Ford Escort and other cars?


Start from scratch.
Does the battery have 12 volts across the terminals? If yes, then does the starter click when you turn the key? If no, replace the battery.
If the starter clicks when you turn the key, but the engine doesn't crank, replace the starter.
If no click, then check for power at the starter solenoid.
If there is power at the solenoid, but no click when you turn the key, check the starter relay. If none of this fixes your problem, you may want to have your mechanic check for broken or corroded wires
