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

Where is the starter solenoid on a 2005 ford explorer?

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.

Have a 1992 Dodge Ram 50 When you turn the key the lights on the dash come on but the starter does nothing you have had the Battery tested the starter tested you have replaced the ECM and 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.

1992 Ford E-350 diesel will not start - batteries starter test good but single click only?

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

Where is the starter modulator relay on a 1987 Ford Aerostar van?

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.
