Question about Ford F-150
You may be having problems with the Starter Relay. There is a small wire on the Relay which runs back to the Ignition switch. If you put a testlight on the end of this wire and turn the Ignition key to START, there should be a steady current going to this small wire. If the testlight cuts out, the Ignition switch is bad. If the testlight works every time, then most likely the Starter relay is bad.
Or you can just change the Starter Relay and forget testing the small wire. You might want to go to Autozone, Oreillys or Advance for a starter Draw test of the new starter after you replace the Relay. Then have them do a test for the Battery to see if it is shorting under a load.
I hope you find my solution very helpful.
