Question about 1992 Ford Explorer
One day I get in my 92' Ford Explorer, 4.0L, it gets up and goes but when i come out of the store all it does when i try and start it is click, so i think starter, but after a few more attempts it finally catches so at first i got the starter tested and it was fine so i changed the ignition switch and that worked for a couple days, then again all it does is click again so i think either it is that starter again or one of the relays, so i replace the starter and now all it does is make a sound from the starter like it is not catching the flywheel, I have some say that it might be the flywheel is bad and i also had advice that it could be the wire that tells the starter to connect with the flywheel, but i cann't get to that fuse to replace it on the wire.
Unfortunately, I believe most 1992 Ford Explorer owners have had the same starting problem and thought it was either the battery or the starter which after being tested turned out to be fine. Fortunately, I had a friend who had a considerable amount of knowledge about Fords and he suggested that I replace the "starter relay switch". This little monster is located on the passenger side firewall beside the battery. When I replaced this one part my Explorer started right up with no problems. This part can be purchased any local auto parts store. Remember, before replacing the part disconnect the battery!!!!! The part itself can cost anywhere from $30 to $50.

Check you positive side cable for corrosion and you might need to replace the cable because it runs from the battery direct to the starter and to the starter relay that is mounted on the right front fender under the hood. You have 2 (two) starter relays on your Explorer.
