Question about Ford F-250

3 Answers

I want to test my Starter unit for a full size Ford pickup: I must learn where the B circuit and the other circuits are located on the out side of the Starting unit, so I can test the Starter unit with an Ohm meter/

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.

Car wont start have replaced starter motor and relay and igniyion switch still wont start


What is year--make--model?
Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections are all good. If your saying starter motor won't crank, check voltage and ground at the starter motor. Usually two voltage circuits at the starter, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the crank position and in your case, I suppose wired through the starter relay. The relay has two circuits, the load side and control side of relay. The control side of relay needs voltage and ground to energize the relay. The load side of relay, in a diagram shows a line with arrowhead, when relay is energized, that arrowhead line moves to other terminal and that circuit carries voltage to starter. The voltage for load side of relay is usually hot all the time. I can't rule out neutral or clutch switch. The starter motor usually grounds through the engine block. If all voltage and ground circuit for the starter are good, I'd have to make sure the engine isn't seized.
Any testing at the starter, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set.

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.

No power pass starter .no lights in or out every thing dead


No vehicle either-- apparently

What was tested & how & the results ?

You want us to guess at what-- I ask?

You always start at the battery & test your way to,
hopefully-- finding something amiss

I would suggest you get a wiring diagram, as you will need
to learn your vehicles circuits,at least those you intend to test,
so you can pick a convenient test points

The push & poke,wish & hope strategy, won't get you far

That being-- checking all fusible links & fuses & the visual
checks

You need to talk in the terms Voltage,Amperage,Voltage
Drops,Power or Ground Side of a circuit,so everyone
understands what your doing,testing & how.

ITurn key, clicking sound, no turn over


If it won't crank over, it's a problem in the starting circuit, not the ignition circuit. Check your battery and starter for clean, tight connections. Listen for that click to see if it comes from the starter solenoid on the starter-maybe have someone try to start it while you watch and listen under the hood. If the click is from the solenoid (and not from the starter relay), then the starter is not getting full battery power to crank (bad connection), or the starter needs to come off and be tested.
If the click is from the starter relay, you could pull off the little purple wire to the starter solenoid and see if it has 12 volts when the key is in start position. If you have power there in cranking position on the switch, the solenoid is bad or the starter may be the problem-again, it will have to come off for testing. If you have no power at the solenoid in cranking position, the circuit from the ignition switch to the solenoid is not working. The start relay and the neutral safety switch (or clutch switch if manual transmission) are in the starting circuit from ignition switch to the starter solenoid. Good luck.

I need a picture for wiring the silanoied on ford mustang 302 v8 fuel injected


Testing Use the charts to help located and diagnosis starting system problems. Remember that the starter uses large amounts of current during operation, so use all appropriate precautions during testing. Fig. 1: Starter circuit 88152ga5.gif

How do i check my codes in a 86 nissan z24 pickup


The self-diagnostic system identifies malfunctions of signal systems such as sensors, actuators and wire harnesses based on the input signals received by the ECCS control unit. Various malfunctions are coded and displayed on the control unit by a series of blinking red and green lights. Results of the self-diagnosis are retained in the control unit's memory and are displayed when the mode selector, located on the rear of the control unit, Fig. 122, is switched to the On position. When displaying malfunction codes, the code number can be determined by counting the number of light pulses. The red light represents the first digit of the code, while the green light represents the second digit of the code. For example, a Code 32, would be displayed as three flashes of the red light, followed by two flashes of the green light. Malfunction codes can be translated as follows:
  1. Code 11 -- Crank angle sensor circuit malfunction.
  2. Code 12 -- Air flow meter malfunction.
  3. Code 13 -- Water temperature sensor circuit malfunction.
  4. Code 21 -- Ignition signal malfunction.
  5. Code 23 -- Idle switch circuit malfunction.
  6. Code 24 -- Transmission switch and clutch switch circuit malfunction.
  7. Code 32 -- Starter signal malfunction.
  8. Code 42 -- Throttle sensor circuit malfunction.
  9. Code 43 -- Injector circuit malfunction.
  10. Code 44 -- All monitored systems satisfactory.
