Why would the starter solenoid stick on an 87 Bronco 4.9 300 6-cylinder?

this is a farely common problem with aftermarket relays. do not see it much with the ford relays. what happens is that when you turn the key to the start position the relay is activated. now these things have alot of current going through them. what happens is when the contact plates inside contact each other they cause a pretty large arc. over time the plates will eventually stick together due to the extreme heat that runs through that relay. my reccomendation is to fork over the cash for a good ford relay and that should take care of your problem.

Just like anything else, the starter solenoid will eventually wear out. They can short, short to ground and stick.

It sounds like the solenoid is stuck. does the car have an aftermarket remote starter? it could be malfunctioning. ive never seen a solenoid stick on one of these.

more than likely its the starter solenoid..not kicking out starter gear fast enough.

Replace the starter power solenoid install on the passenger side fender right behind the battery. Usually it cracks and moisture causes it to stick.

Its the solenoid (relay) that you are jumping. If i understand you correctly, it cranks when you cross the relay. Just ask for starter solenoid, and stick in on like the old one.
