Where is the solenoid located for a Ford explorer 1999


You presumably mean the starter solenoid?

If it is the usual sort of pre-engaged coaxial type, the solenoid is to be found in assembly with the starter motor.

Where is the trailer light fuse


The answer to this question depends on several factors such as: Whether the towbar was a factory fitted unit fitted during
pre-delivery, a genuine brand unit or an aftermarket unit & who, where & when it was fitted...
The majority of towbars & the assosiated wiring out there are simply wired in to the rear tail light circuits such as:
  • Trailer stop lights wired to vehicle stop light circuit in eighther of the rear tail lights.
  • Trailer park lights wired to vehicle park light circuit same side as the stop lights, as above.
  • Trailer number plate lights wired to vehicle park light circuit same side, as above.
  • Trailer reverse lights (if fitted) wired to vehicle reverse light circuit same side, as above.
  • Trailer left hand indicator wired to vehicle left hand indicator light circuit
  • Trailer right hand indicator wired to vehicle right hand indicator light circuit.
This means that if fitted in this manner (as the majority are) the corrosponding vehicle light fuse will affect the trailer lights unless the is an inline fuse fitted to each single circuit (which cld be blown). This is very uncommon & wld be a costly way to do it...

In some more modern cars that came from the factory (not the dealership ie. pre-delivery) with the tow bar fitted as standard equipment it is possible that there cld be a sepparate little fuse box or section in the main fuse box (the position of the fuse box/es shld be in your owners manual usually Under the bonnet, under the dash or behind font foot kick panels, & if you dont have an owners manual for your vehicle they are usually available to buy an aftermarket version or these days on the internet & often downloadable for free or @ a small charge).

All the best & I hope this is of some help...

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

2003 dyna starter turns but wont engage, new battery fitted


Hi Anonymous, lift up rubber boot on positive cable to starter, unplug starter relay wire usually green, with a jumper wire connected to positive battery cable starter stud, touch blade connecter on starter where starter relay wire was removed. If starter engages and turns over engine then your starter relay is bad. If starter activates but does not engage then your starter drive/clutch is bad. Good luck

What is a flex plate


it is the "flywheel" bolted to the rear of an engine that connects the engine to the torque converter on an automatic transmission equipped vehicle. This flywheel also has the gear teeth around its diameter that engages the starter motor, allowing the starter to turn the engine.

My truck will randomly not start, it seems like the ignition switch is bad. It will start fine but every once in a while, when I turn the ignition, it dead, nothing, I mean all the electronics work but it...


You have the classic signs of a failing starter solenoid.

As I'm on the opposite side of the Atlantic Ocean (England) your vehicle model is unfamiliar to me, but almost all modern vehicles have pre-engaged starter motors which means that the solenoid is mounted to the starter as an integral unit. As fixing this problem means replacing the solenoid, it usually means replacing the entire starter motor assembly. But if the solenoid is failing then the starter motor is also usually pretty tired as well.

If you ever do get stuck before you get the chance to fix it, then a sharp tap on the solenoid with a hammer will normally free it up and allow you to start, but when the fault gets really bad even that trick doesn't work. Note that for accessibility reasons you may need to place a long metal bar (or screwdriver) against the solenoid and then apply the sharp hammer tap to the end of the bar. It's therefore best to find out how to access the solenoid and to keep the necessary tools in the trunk now, rather than having to find out on a dark rainy night.

INSTALLED NEW STARTER , SOUNDS LIKE ITS NOT FULLY ENGAGING FLYWHEEL


if the starter is making grinding sound it not! however it could be loos and needs to be bolted up tight or there may be a bad power joint to the starter,, check for this also check all the earth leads off the engine to the battery, if its still grinding then its likely to be a dud starter you fitted,, the solenoid is not fully engaging the starter bog in the fly wheel teeth and it stopping short and then it spins up this is whats making the grinding noise, it can also make a right mess of your fly wheel ring gear,, so dont leave it to long to get it sorted out,

2004 suburban starter motor clicking but wont engage flywheel.Battery checkb uckfloyd944@yahoo.comed good,no corrosion on terminals.What do I check next?


It could be many things, of course the most common is the battery, and you say that is good. Even when you tryed boosting, i assume?
If it's not the battery, it might not be all the way in park. I have even heard of people rocking the vehicle back and forth in park to make it go all the way in to park, and start.
Next thing it could be is broken , loose or disconnected wires in the starting circuit. Inspect all wires at the battery , starter solenoid, and ignition switch.
Still nothing. Faulty starter solenoid.
Faulty starter.
Ignition switch.
Starter motor pinion jammed in your ring gear.
Let me know how you make out. Good luck.

What do i have to do to swap a inertia starter motor for a pre-engaged starter motor on my ford mk2 escort


A lot of work !!!
The engine or gearbox will removing.
You will need to find a pre-engaged starter ring (not sure that one was produced)
Take off flywheel and change over ring gears.. then reassemble.
Why do you want to change it ?
