If the solinoid if clicking, sounds as thought the impellar is stuck. Try having someone turn over the car while you take a hammer and tap the starter at the same time. If the car turns over, you will have to replace the starter. You can usually get a few starts out of the tapping method before the starter fails.

Feedback is appreciated.

    When you replace your starter make sure to replace your solenoid as well before all try a simple battery charge or jump start than replace if after replacing it will not start check all your connections are not grounded and give it a jump it will start perfect guaranteed also make sure starter and solenoid connections are tight and not grounded to anything this will cause you starter to continuously turn your ignition even after being started if so happens make sure to disconnect battery immediately and un-ground and slipped connections maybe your battery cable attached to your ignition on your solenoid follow these steps when fixing a starter problem and you'll be golden

My 1996 ford taurus wont start i tried everything new battery new starter all it does is click what can it be?


follow the positive cable from battery, and you will find it ! did you change starter solinoid with the starter! the clicking and will not turn over is caused by battery, starter solinoid, or bad battery cable. The starter solenoid on many Ford vehicle's is on the inner fender well, The terminals should be free of corrosion and should tighten up well.
When the connections are tight you should not be able to twist them by hand.

good-day !

Wont start turn over with key but can jump accross starter


solinoid for starter is bad. on a lot of fords the solinoid is mounted on fender, under hood. if you jump from one side to other on solinoid, and it tries to start then solinoid is toast. just follow the positive cable from battery. and you will find it.

MY ford tempo is not starting i changed the distribuator cap and router and alternator and got new batterie now the solinoide off of the starter on driver side fender is ticking when trying to turn car...


ether a bad solenoid or a bad starter. Assuming you cleaned all the cable connections.

Put in park and and try bypassing the solnoid with a jumper cable. Battery positiv post to starter.
Be careful

1993 Ford Tempo won't start


I know this sounds stupid, tap the fender soliniod with a small hammer when someone is trying to crank the engine, it will start. The clicking is a jam in the solinoid, one tap and it should release. I told a few people this on here and they didn't beleive me, but all have sent me mails thanking me. Good luck bud,
Regards, Dave, Let me know

Starter wont engage


The problem is either the starter solinoid (located on fender near battery) or you are not getting power to the "s" terminal on the starter solinoid from the ignition switch. If you follow the positive battery cable from the battery you'll follow it to the solinoid. Remove the small wire from the terminal marked "s" on the solinoid and using a screwdriver jump from "s" terminal (not the wire) to where positive battery cable connects to solinoid. (with battery connected). If starter doesn't do anything the solinoid is bad. If starter cranks then you are not getting voltage from ignition switch through "s" terminal wire.
