It can be the solonoid or the starter itself. TAke it to a garage and have it checked out.

I have the same problem in my Explorer Sport. It could be your Anti-Theft immobilizer. Somehow my keys unprogrammed themselves, which didnt match the code in the ignition, therefore the car would not start. If a mechanic cannot fix the problem, call a locksmith.

Test the battery with a digital voltmeter. You should get a reading of 12.6 V if the battery is fully charged. If the battery is fully charged then you know the alternator is functioning properly and your problem is more than likely a defective starter.

92 escort has power started 5 minutes prior to stop now won't turn over?

It may have had enough power to run, but not enough amperage or voltage to operate the starter. Check the battery with a tester. Voltage should read at least 12 volts. If that is OK check the battery terminals to see if they are clean and tight. If you battery is fully charged and the connections are clean and tight check the starter by turning on your headlights and having someone watch them to see if they go dim when the starter is actuated. If they do go dim or almost out when the starter is actuated the starter is at fault. If they don't show any difference in brightness when the starter is actuated the solenoid at the starter is bad or the ignition switch is bad. Run a test lead from the + side of the battery to the s terminal of the starter . If they starter turns over the switch is bad. If the starter doesn't turn over the solenoid is bad.

What is the difference between a starter relay and a starter solenoid?

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
