Yeah, sounds like your solenoid is staying closed rather than releasing after the car starts.

For ranger new starter wont stop running


Starter Relay The starter motor solenoid relay switch (11450) consists of a pull-in coil, a contact disc, and two terminal contacts. Battery voltage is always present at the relay positive terminal. When the ignition switch (11572) is in the START position, the pull-in coil is activated and pulls the contact disc into contact with both terminal contacts. This allows battery current to pass through the starter motor solenoid relay switch to the starter solenoid (11390). The starter solenoid is deactivated when the ignition switch is in the RUN or OFF position.
Maybe something is hooked up wrong ! Or the starter relay is bad

Wiper oes not shut off why?


-possibly relay stuck in "ON" position. Unplug the relay and plug back to position. If it still on then replace new relay.


Good Luck

60A fuse ignition switch blowing out when i crank my 1992 cadillac sedan deville 4.9 base


fuse may just be old and failed or your started is bad and you have a dead short.
you want to try and fix it.
first replace the fuse.
check the wiring form battery to starter relay to starter - if all ok
disconnect the starter and start the car with the starter disconnected ( car will not start) does the fuse blow.
I hope not. - if it does you may have bigger problems.
now replace the starter, it is probably locked up. unless the engine has seized.

Can a bad ignition switch drain battery and prevent a 1994 Ford Escort from being jumped off and/or starting? Have replaced starter/battery terminal/relay switch. It still fails for start. Alternator is...


An ignition switch probably isn't the problem, because the vehicle probably wouldn't shut off if the switch were the problem. When you turn your car off the battery is not being drained any longer from the switch unless the vehicle is unable to shut down.
The other possibility that will definately cause a battery to lose juice while not running is a faulty starter sellinoid. When these sellinoid's, (may not be spelled correctly, sorry about that) are bad, the motor is turned off but the battery is still drawing current, but the engine is not running to allow the battery to recharge.
It could also be a bad battery. Check your battery cylinders by removing the plastic covering and checking the water level in the cells. Dry cells in a battery will not allow a jump.

1987 Bronco Starter


ok you have a solonoid on the fender that controlls the starter
there is a small wire that signal the relay to close that puts power to your starter.
you need a test light to see when that wire is hot.
and then we can go from there
later

2000 Ford Ranger 50 amp fuse burns out


Try disconnecting your alternator temporarily. It may have a shorted diode but that would also normally drain the battery too unless it charges over a relay.
The starter relay can't cause this alone and the currents through the ignition switch mostly control relays. If removing the alternator cable didn't work, I would remove the starter (only a few bolts) after disconnecting the ground cable from your battery and try turning it by hand. It should be stiff but not impossible and if it refuses to turn, it may have a short from the field to the case.  It isn't really possible to use a multimeter to check the starter's windings because they are very low resistance when normal (the beast draws 120-200 amps to start) and would look like shorts on a standard meter anyhow.
