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

How do you replace the throttle position sensor in your 1998 ford explorer?

Remove the negative battery cable being careful to put it out of the way from any contact. You may need an impact screwdriver to remove the "old" TPS due to the fact that FORD has been known to use "locktite" on this particular part. Other than that it should be a pretty simple operation. After removal of the "old" TPS you should note the direction of rotation for the Throttle Body plate shaft when throttle is being engaged. Then when installing the "new" TPS rotate it a bit in the SAME direction the shaft travels then ease it back and line up the holes. You should feel some resistance on the spring as you do this. The two small tabs on the TPS should both be ahead of the nub on the TB plate shaft. Then just tighten it back up, re-attach the negative battery cable and your good to go.

Besides the battery itself and alternator what would cause a 91 mercury capri battery not to hold a charge?

You're describing a common problem. Many times a relay, such as the AC relay, will fail to turn off when the key is off. When that happens the device controlled by the relay, such as the AC clutch, will remain engaged and drain the battery.
