SOURCE: ignition problems

Hey there Krabbe,

Since you are considering changing the ignition switch, I'm going to assume an above average mechanical ability on your part.

Sight unseen, I'd check the starter and solenoid first. They are easy to prove/disprove as the problem. The procedure for replacing the ignition switch is much more involved.

The solenoid on a Ford is usually near the battery and easily accessed. It has two heavy cables and a thinner gauge wire attached to it.

Before doing any testing, make sure the transmission is in Neutral or Park with the Parking Brake on.

Applying +12V to the terminal the thinner wire is attached to should engage the solenoid and cause the starter to crank the engine. You can use a small jumper (alligator clip type).

If the starter engages, you were right. Next stop the ignition switch. I'll get the replacement procedure written up for you.

If the Solenoid gives a solid CLICK, but the starter doesn't spin, use a screwdriver to short the two heavy solenoid terminals. If the starter spins up now, the solenoid is the problem. If not, it's the Starter.

The way we proceed depends on the results though. Please respond with what happened with the test. I'll get you going.

Mike

Hi Matt

Follow the( + ) positive lead from the battery, to the starter, check the connections, if all OK, get someone to turn the ignition key to start, and give the starter a tap, on the selenoid, with a small hammer or a metal socket extension.

Good Luck !

Let me know the outcome !

Also a FixYa rating would be nice !

SOURCE: turn the ignition key and nothing happens. turn it

when it won't start, use a test light on the solenoid wire (the small gauge wire) in the start position, you should have voltage. Also check your shift linkage to make sure the shift cable isn't keeping it from going into park position. try it in neutral position as well... that's a clue to a trans selector switch

Check battery full charge, battery terminals are clean, cables aren't cracked, broken or corroded and alternator first.

Which your having replaced your starter with new already. If you're still getting nothing it sounds like a bad ignition switch.

They wear normally and need to be replaced. But as a helpful hint don't place excess keys or weighty trinkets on your ignition keys.

They wear on the seating of the key in the ignition and often promote failure in the ignition from bearing the dangling weight.

check your starter relay in the power distribution center. if you are not getting any crank. with a test light or dvom you can check the small signal wire on your starter solenoid when the key is in the crank position there should be power on this wire. it sounds like you are not getting signal to the starter from the ignition switch
