If you hear only a single click - most likely solenoid switch

Make sure connections clean and tight on solenoid "Pigtail wire"

and also solenoid on top of starter (Ford had some problems with

corrosion and connections loosening up over a period of time). If

you hear multiple Clicks - check battery connections to make sure

clean and tight One other "rap" the stater with hammer or whatever

and see if vehicle starts indicating bad starter brushes
