Auto or stick? If auto, try wiggling the shifter a bit while holding the key in the start position because the neutral start switch may be out of adjustment or the shifter linkage worn out. If stick, you may have a problem with the clutch switch. Slip it off the clutch master cylinder pushrod and jumper the 2 red & blue wire terminals together then try starting it (make sure you're in N with the clutch depressed.)

I'm pretty sure Ford has used the same color wiring for quite a long time, so basically what you'll have to do is trace the red & blue wire from the starter relay back to the ignition switch, checking for power at each connection.

its a stick but thats where im at now tring to back trace also dont know if this helps someone previously took that solenoid out the starter loop and now it just powers glow plugs when activated think they hook a wire from under the dash straight to starter and ran cable from bat to starter. If im unable to fix loss of power issue could i bypass the fender solenoid ?

anyone by chance have wiring diagram? traced it back to beside the under hood fuse block and lose it also the wire they tag into for starter looks to be same color but it only powers up when keys turned to starting position so glow plugs still wouldnt get powered up if its is same and was repaired



Thanks for the help

ok fixed wire and found that the clutch switch was also bad still trouble with GPs think i narrowed it down to fender solenoid wiring is the wire powering the GP solenoid supposed to be on same side as wire from the battery is cause if so its on the other side that has to be activated to run power to it also is there suppose to be a wire from fender solenoid activation to starter solenoid activation terminal?




Thanks again for all your help,
Ramsey89
