No, the starter solenoid is not the problem if it won't start by pushing it. Check fuses and relays first then check to make sure you have fuel and fuel pressure. Make sure you have spark at the plugs. It's more than likely it's a fuel or ignition problem.

What are the parts of a starter in a 1994 ford escort lx?

The main parts are the starter motor, starter drive gear and starter solenoid. Look up '94 Ford Escort LX in the parts catalog and look under Electrical to see photos of the starter and its parts. Make sure the voltage from the ignition key wire to the solenoid is > 3 volts before replacing the starter. If a low voltage is coming into the solenoid then a new starter and solenoid will not fix the starting problem and the new solenoid could be damaged. Look up '94 Ford Escort LX in the i am sure you will get there

Why would the ignition starter fuse in a 2002 grand am blow when you start the car?

what size fuse is it it would need to be a 30 amp fuse for the starter solenoid after that your starter solenoid could be shorting if you take the wire that comes from the key off the starter (normally the small wire on its own going onto the solenoid on top of the starter)then turn the key same as if you were starting the engine if the fuse doesn't blow then you need a new solenoid for the starter or a new starter if the price is right if the fuse does blow with the wire off the solenoid then you have a short in the wiring loom check the loom for break or cracks there is a good chance the wire is after wearing against the engine somewhere if this is the case tape it over and tie it back from the engine

How do you know if a starter or starter solenoid is bad in a 91 ford F-150?

If it is the solenoid just take a small jumper wire and jump out the two small terminals on the front of the solenoid and the starter should try to start the engine. If nothing happens then it is bad. Or you could take a volt meter and go from ground to the starter side of the solenoid and get some one to take the key and try to start it ,if you get 12volts and the starter doesn't try to engage then your starter is bad ,if you don't get 12volts then your solenoid is bad.

Why will a 91 Lincoln Town Car start with a screwdriver touching the solenoid but not with the key manually?

Not to bash on the last answer, but, the starter solenoid probably isn't at fault here. If it will start with the screwdriver then the starter solenoid is functioning. It either does or it doesnt. The answer lies in circuitry back from the solenoid to the ignition switch. You could have a bad ignition switch or neutral/safety switch.AnswerDefective starter solenoid.
