04 Windsor starter issue

I have an 04 Windsor that has a new starter, and sometimes that starter will not engage. I made this recording explaining the problem; https://www.loom.com/share/e342b2701...f1a99f3c2600f4

Thanks for your help,
David Emmons

Your inverter shouldn't be causing your intermittent starting problem.

You may have already done this, but I would check each cable connection from the starting battery all the way to the starter for corrosion or loose. Just a little corrosion will restrict the high amp load the starter will require.

The starter mounted solenoid gets its power from a starter relay, between it and the batteries.
That relay ( controlled by the key ) may be failing.

Its a standard looking solenoid, like ones used on Ford cars. They tend to tuck them in back there so you need to find it.

When its in its no crank mood, tap that relay with a hammer handle and then try. If it starts, you may have found your problem.

Thank you so much for that suggestion Twinboat. I will see if I can locate the relay. David

Lose ground and hot wire on the starter.

Thanks for all of the help.

Glad you got it fixed.


And thanks for posting the results. So many times folks ask a question and then we never hear from them again, leave us wondering if they solved their problem, and how they were able to fix it.
