    I wired up my ignition based off of the pictures attached and it cranks in run instead of start. I got the red/blue wire from the ignition going to starter side of solenoid, yellow wire from ignition going to battery side of solenoid, then the red/green wire going to small post of the solenoid...

    Hey guys, I have a 88 mustang foxbody I'm restoring and have an issue with my starting of the car. So the car will be complete off with keys in my hand and still seemingly drawing unusual levels power from the battery, which kills the battery. But before the battery is dead, if the battery is...

    Hey chaps! I'm planning on relocating the battery of my 67 coupe to the boot (Trunk?), and looking at the relocation kits out there one thing screams danger to me. All these kits seem to leave the starter relay in the stock location, doesn't this give you a dangerously long permanently live...

    Hi, I own a 66 Mustang, I6 auto C-4. I recently replaced the alternator, ignition switch, starter, and starter solenoid. Everytime I try and start the car, the starter motor stays stuck to the point where it sounds like the car is at full throttle without even depressing the accelerator. I...

    Hello, my homies. I hope all is well. My 71 Mustang has a 302, C-4 transmission, and a 157 tooth flex plate. I have been having serious issues keeping a starter on this thing. I can start it up a couple times, then the starter is toast. The end just breaks off. My flex plate is straight and all...

    Hello everyone! After months of a few hours here and there upgrading my 289, it seems like there's a whining noise coming from the starter motor (View video). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eocThhvt7ec In your experience is this salvageable or do I need a new starter? The engine starts...

    Hi everyone. I drove my car to work this morning with no issues, but when I went to start the car after work I instead heard this grinding noise. In the video the grinding noise stops when I let off the ignition, but before this I had to run around, pop the hood, and hit the starter solenoid to...

    Hello all, I've been chasing a problem with my 1998 v6. Sometimes(mostly cold starts) when I start the car it makes a grind for a split second, it's almost like your trying to start the car when it's already running. The car did sit pretty much the entire winter and we had a bad one, so I'm...

    So I was going to start my new motor for the first time and the very last thing to connect was the starter to the + side of starter relay. upon doing so the 60amp fuse in line with my battery blew. the starter was brand new, but is it possible that I got a bad starter?? I tried to just hook a...

    In the past I have had some issues with my ignition system. Mostly just the starter solenoid. Recently when I go to turn on my car the starter will get stuck. Not the solenoid, but the starter itself. It makes a very ugly clicking noise. Either it goes away after about 15 seconds or I have to...

    When putting the a new starter on my 1990 mustang. I noticed that the teeth of the starter gear are always in contact with the flywheel. My question, should they be in contact with flywheel all the time or does the starter engage the gear and then retract it after the ignition is let go?

    I just got my 460 powered fox going and take it for a spin, my jerry rigged power steering line came off and hosed my nice clean engine compartment down. A call and my buddy helping me fix it on the side of the road (hose clamp and more PS fluid) I drive it to the gas station I was originally...

    65 convertible 289/c4. I recently installed my engine and trans. I can turn the engine freely by hand but after I installed the starter it will only turn so far and then stop. When I remove the stater it turns freely again all the way around. I know I have the correct starter and I am 80%...

    I have a 1967 ford mustang, original motor was a 289, swapped out for a 67/68 302 over 10 years ago. In the past year I have gone through 4 remanufactured starters that are for a 67 ford mustang v8 4.7L. I am trying to pinpoint why the starter keeps going bad. Am I supposed to use only a new...

    I am trying to determine the location to ground the starter. Right now, I have a 4 gauge wire going from the starter to the place where the solenoid attaches the frame. I am sure that is not right, but I am not sure where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Ok, so....My '06 Convertible has this nasty little habit of running really good, and then suddenly, it won't start. You turn the key, the odometer display "flat-lines" and the starter does nothing. I mean nothing! No clicking, no nothin'. All other electrical works fine, just no juice getting...
