Question about 1988 Ford F 150
YOU MIGHT HAVE THE WIRES ON THE SOLENOID WRONG.

This is a relatively simple problem. Loosen the bolts on the starter - you should leave them a little snug so that the starter will move, but stay in the correct position when you are done with this little proceedure. After you have loosened the starter, click the key quickly. Then tighten the bolts back up. The starter problem you describe happened to me on a diesel. I was lucky to get both batteries unhooked before something blew up.
