Are you checking to see if the starter is bad? If so, testing this way is a power and continuity test, and testing a starter in this way will not neccessarily tell you whether it is godd or bad. If the brushes or the armature is worn out, the power and continuity will test good, but the starter still will not work or work part time. The best way to test a starter is to remove it and have it tested at any auto parts store.

2003 Ford explorer just clicks when l try to crank. Replaced starter, still same click?


What's clicking ? starter , relay ? Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? How about a DMM - digital multi-meter ,for testing electrical circuit's ? First off learning how the starter circuit in your vehicle works would be good ,that way your not guessing . Most of the time it take's just looking at a wiring diagram to see all the thing's involved . Plus watching a few electrical diagnostic video's on youtube ,if you know nothing about the subject .

Ignition circuit diagram on a 2004 ford 150

The ignition switch to start send's B+ voltage to the transmission range switch , if in park or neutral the B+ voltage goes to the starter relay coil side an on to the PCM - engine computer .If not problems with the anti-theft system the PCM supply's a ground which will energize the relay an close the contacts inside sending B+ voltage to the S terminal on the starter solenoid engaging an spinning the engine over .

Can the pcm prevent the ignition starter switch from stating a 2002 ford focus


Ignition starter switch ???? It's Just a ignition switch ! If a problem with PATS - anti-theft system , the pcm will not supply a ground to the control side of the starter relay . Starter relay located in the central junction box , inside the vehicle fuse/relay box. Do you know what a relay is an how it works ? How to test electrical circuit's with a DMM - digital multi-meter ? Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? How to use one for testing electrical circuit's .
Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html
Enter the vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Under system click on engine ,then under subsystem click on starting . Click the search button then the blue link .Do you have a manual or automatic transmission ? Also won't start if has a bad park neutral safety switch . Try putting into neutral an see if it will start then .
Testing for B+ voltage at pins # 30 & 85 . If you pull the relay an look at the bottom you will see four set's of numbers 30 & 87 ,30 is B+ voltage an 30 goes to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . 85 & 86 is control side of the relay ,one should have B+ voltage an the other is connected to the PCM . When the PCM supply's a ground the relay is energized closing the contacts inside sending battery voltage to the starter solenoid .
Are you confused yet ? Looking at the wiring will show what i just stated . Video's on youtube on testing relay's an their circuit's . Good luck .

Testing the electrical circuit's is the best way to find the problem ! Voltage drop testing ! Reading factory sevice info. learning how to trouble shoot the problem , not replacing parts .Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? How to use one to find point's in an electrical circuit to test at ? Here is a web site for free wiring diagrams . http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year ,make , model and engine size . Under system click on engine ,then starting in subsystem .

watch these videos , buy a volt meter an test the electrical circuits .
Do you know what the relay switch is ?
The starter motor solenoid relay switch:
  • controls current to the starter solenoid.
  • is engaged by the ignition switch.
  • connects the battery (10655) to the starter motor.
The TR sensor on automatic transmission-equipped vehicles prevents starter motor engagement unless the transmission is in the NEUTRAL or PARK position. For additional information, refer to Section 307-01A or Section 307-01B .

Why will my gas gage stay at full on my 2001 excursion


The gauge is faulty or the sending unit in the fuel tank is bad ! There is away to test it, find a wiring diagram an locate the two wires at the fuel pump sending unit connector . Go to radio shack or some other electronics store an buy some resistors of differing resistance , I'm not sure of resistor sizes , I will look it up on my ford service info system. If you jump the right resisters into the fuel sending unit circuit you can make the gauge show 1/4 - 1/2 - 3/4 an full. If it move to those positions with the right size resistors it's not the gauge but the sending unit in the gas tank ! Diagnosis of Stuck Fuel Gauge Is it Gauge or Sending Unit

2000 Ford Ranger wont start or turn over.


What is litre size of engine, automatic tranny or manual? Check the wiring circuits at the starter for voltage,use a test light, One circuit is hot all the time, the other circuit goes hot when starter relay is energized. Any testing at the starter make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set. The clicking noise may be the starter relay.

Ford econoline wont start


https://s4.postimg.org/898usmifh/starter.jpg

Click on the link. I tried to get all on the same page, hope you can read it? It's for the starter motor circuit. You need to test when problem is ongoing.
Make sure battery has a full charge and connections all good. I don't know liter size of engine, whether it is diesel or gasoline? The diagram is for 5.8L gas engine.
Any testing at starter motor make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set. Two voltage circuits at starter motor, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot when starter relay is energized. Check the fuses for voltage in the diagram. The starter motor usually grounds through engine block.
Unless you can do some testing, I don't know how to help?

Rather then just replacing parts testing the fuel pump electrical circuit is the proper way to diagnose . Do you know how to use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter , how to use a wiring diagram to pin point testing points in a electrical circuit ? How to use voltage drop testing in a circuit to find which part of the circuit has the problem B+ or ground side . Yes it can be very agrivating if you don't know what your doing . Testing for power at the relay an testing for control . The PCM - engine computer controls the fuel pump relay !
