Several possibilities. 1) Take you battery to your local auto parts place and have it checked. 2) make sure that there is no corrosion on the battery terminals. 3) place a volt meter on the battery while it is running. If it is 13.6V to 14.3V that it is charging. If it is lower, than the voltage regulator (should be on the firewall or fender) is probably defective. 4) check the wiring between the voltage regulator and the battery. Good luck!

I would wire up a relay between the battery and the choke solenoid. Fuse the choke separately in the engine compartment. You could run the relay coil off the same washer wire as before, but this way the washer fuse wouldn't have to source current to the choke. 25315115-wng3opgl1pug32fsc4t4fc4i-3-0.jpg

You more than likely need a new starter selinoid. Also make sure your alternator is putting out enough charge,13.2V or higher. You may also have a problem with the red power cable to the starter especially at the starter hook up point. Hope this helps you. Good luck!

94 bronco 5.0 will not start changed solinoid

Remove starter wire from solenoid and firmly touch it to the other wire on solenoid. It will spark some, starter should crank if working; providing battery power is good and the battery connections are clean. Check the heavy ground wire from battery to where it's connected to the engine or body are clean. If not, starter is bad.
