Asked in Batteries
Can you short out a battery by replacing a starter?
Why would it sound like the starter stays engaged when reconnecting the negative battery cable after installing a new starter?
Well you might want to check the wires that connect back to the starter. If you missed one that should be bolted to the starter it'll be hanging or stuck somewhere - most likely touching metal. If it is touching any metal it will always try to engage when you hook up the other end of the wire to the battery. -Sara replace your selonid

Asked in Ford Freestar
Where is the starter on a 2006 Ford Freestar?
Under the oil pan joint level mounted into the transmission housing so it can engage the flywheel ring gear. The starter is accessed from under the vehicle. There are 2 bolts that attach the unit. WARNING: The starter is connected to the battery with heavy high current leads that can carry dangerous currents. Always disconnect the battery ground terminal before working on or around the starter. Be sure the protective covers are in place before reconnecting the battery.
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

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.
Asked in Auto Parts and Repairs, Ford Explorer
Starter in your ford explorer not engaging you need to locate it and hit it with a hammer?
If the starter motor is spinning but not engaging it won't help to hit it with a hammer. The "starter drive" portion of the starter is shot. If all you get is a click or no noise at all, you might get lucky by hitting it, assuming the battery and all connections are good. This technique may work once or twice if the starter is at fault. The starter is located under the vehicle. You can follow the path of the positive battery cable from the battery to locate the starter. The positive battery cable will pass thru the starter solenoid on the inner fender then continue down to the starter.

Asked in Alternators, Car Batteries
1999 ford explorer - bad starter your battery tests fine but extreme difficulty turnning over could this be anything other than a bad starter when I am sure the alternator is fine?
If the starter is causing a 1993 Geo Metro to only stat when it is push started in second gear where is the starter located and how do you repair it?
The starter on a 93 Geo Metro is located on the back side or firewall side of the engine. The battery will need to be disconnected and the cables removed from the solenoid and then the two bolts holding the starter to the engine can be removed. When installing the starter make the battery connection the last thing you do.
Asked in Jeep Wrangler
How do you change a selonoid on a 95 Jeep Wrangler?
You might need to remove exhaust pipes, a frame crossmember, and sometimes unbolt and slightly lift the engine to access the starter motor! Check first to see if you have the Ford Solenoid near the battery, then check to see if you can get the starter out easily. Then proceed. # Disconnect battery # Mark wires and terminals on starter motor and solenoid for reconnecting. # Remove 1 bolt from the top front, and one from the lower rear of starter to detach starter # Remove cable connecting solenoid and starter # Remove the two screws from the solenoid # Twist clockwise and pull to completely remove solenoid # Reverse above procedure to put it all back If you happen to have the Ford/Motorcraft solenoid (rare, but possible), then the above can be skipped, it is on the fender well next to the battery. In that case, disconnect battery, mark wires/terminals for reconnecting, unbolt solenoid and cables, replace.
