Check all fuses to include those in engine bay, then all connections of battery cables - not just the ones at the battery posts.
Start using a little logic and find out what's wrong before replacing more parts. Power directly to the low side of the solenoid should force the starter. If that works but the starter doesn't work with the keyswitch, it might just be the neutral lockout.
On my 1995 Ford Explorer , as far as I know , the starter solenoid is mounted on the starter and the starter relay ( which most people just refer to as the solenoid ) is mounted near my battery and has the positive battery cable connected to it ( a relay is a low voltage switch ) P.S. I'm not a mechanic / technician
Follow the + battery cable should connect to the starter solenoid (relay) either at the top of starter or at the inner fender perhaps under battery
The starter solenoid shows to be on top of starter. If you don't know where the starter is located, follow the positive battery cable. You may have to get under vehicle to get at the starter. I replace starter and solenoid as a unit. Now, if your talking about starter relay that is a different animal.
The starter relay ( solenoid ) is mounted near the battery on the inside of the drivers side fender
you need to replace the starter solenoid usually on a ford the solenoid is located on the side of the engine bay
Follow the + battery cable from battery should connect to starter solenoid (relay)
Follow the + battery cable should connect to the starter solenoid (relay)
If it is like my '86 Samurai there is no starter relay. It uses a starter solenoid on the top of the starter to pass battery to starter motor when the solenoid is activated via the key switch.
Follow the + battery cable - should connect to the starter solenoid (relay)
Postive battery cable should connect to the starter relay (solenoid)
In the Power Distribution Box in the engine compartment Relay # 6 is the starter relay Caution : The PD Box is " live " ( I believe it was 1998 that Ford changed the Explorer from the solenoid / relay switch mounted on the inside of the drivers fender , near the battery to a plug in style in the PD Box )
The relay is separate from the actual "starter solenoid" which is found at the top of the starter (along the + battery cable).
Maybe on the top of the starter - follow the + battery cable it will connect to the starter relay (solenoid)
There is no starter relay on an Escort. The main battery positive cable goes directly to the starter. A small wire with a clip on it marked s goes to the solenoid. The main battery current to the starter is supplied with this solenoid.
the starter solenoid is on the starter the starter relay is mounted on the drivers side of the top front main support in font of the battery
if its a ford prduct,check starter relay!!if not check starter solenoid.
Follow the + battery cable should connect to the starter relay (solenoid)
battery, solenoid/starter or relay or even ignition switch
jump out the solenoid or relay. This will close the circuit for the high current.
Poor battery condition. Loose and/or dirty battery connections. Faulty starter relay. Faulty starter solenoid. Faulty starter.
You should locate and test the solenoid. Most have three connections. There is a large cable from the battery to the solenoid, from the solenoid to the starter and from the start switch to the solenoid. The power terminals to the battery and the starter are large and have large cables. The starter switch connection is much smaller. Turning the key to 'start' provides a low current voltage to the solenoid causing the solenoid relay to close and power from the battery cable to connect through to the starter. If that voltage is present then the solenoid or the wiring between the solenoid and battery or solenoid and starter is suspect. If that voltage is missing then the starter switch or solenoid feed line may have failed.
If the battery and starter check out good and you are only getting a single click, the problem lies in the starter solenoid or relay. Not sure where the relay might be but the solenoid is usually where the positive battery from the starter connects to. There are at least two wires at the solenoid - the battery cable and a thin wire. check the remote starter solenoid usually monted on right side of engine bay
Try following the + battery cable should end a starter solenoid
There is no relay. The solonoid is on the starter.
The solenoid is attached to the starter. The starter or pilot relay is located on the fender behind the battery. On some models (notably the 4.0L engines) there is also a solenoid located on the starter motor itself, under the vehicle. In this case, the relay on the fender serves only as a pilot.
