Teresa: Your not really shorting the start. Whomever is doing it is bypassing the starter Selinoid. The Selinoid is bad and it is part of the starter. Replace the starter and your problem should be fixed.
Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: won't start, starter will spin but will not engage fly wheel to crank up engine

Sounds like the starter drive is shot, best thing to do is replace starter with new or rebuild.

SOURCE: how do i replace the starter in a 1999 ford

Disconnect the negative battery cable. If it has automatic ride control, make sure it is turned off before you raise the vehicle. Remove the starter solenoid cover, if it has it. Disconnect the large cable from the starter motor and the solenoid connections. Remove the starter mounting bolt and nut and remove the starter from the engine. Reinstall in the reverse order.

SOURCE: where id starter relay on

follow the positive cable from the battery, it goes to your starter solenoid-a solenoid is a heavy-duty relay. On most earlier fords it is mounted on the fender, but newer ones have them attached piggy-back to the starter motor.

Where is the fuel pump reset switch on a 1999 ford explorer. it will crank with starter fluid but will not stay running not getting any gas


I doubt it is the switch. Hit the bottom of the tank about where the pump sets. A rubber mallet works great. 3 or 4 good blows. I bet your truck starts. Replace the pump.

1995 ford explorer wont start


You could be right. It could also be a bad connection between the battery and starter. It takes 11 volts to crank a Ford starter.
You might want to clean the cables and check the voltage at the starter post.
Could also be a problem with the engine.

97 f250 ford truck wont start unless you short across the solenoid


A test light is better for basic testing(puts a load on the circuit).You should be able to get a light on the small solenoid wire when the key is turned to "start".If the light comes on,and shorting across the large terminals cranks the starter,the solenoid is the problem.(pretty common cause).
