Folks, need some ideas because im missing something.
My ‘93 F250 just won’t start when I turn the key. I don’t even get a whir or anything. No engine feedback. Dash does it thing, where the speedo drops and the mileage gauge goes blank. Im very sure its not the battery. It’s exactly a year old Interstate Mega-tron. If i try to normally jump it, still nothing. BUT, if I move the positive jumper cable to the fender solenoid, its starts. Just needs the key in the on position. No clutch being pushed in. I tried disconnecting the safety switch and that didn’t change anything.
Here is what I have done as of late (all new parts)
-new battery, new alternator, belt, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor and cap, new starter, new fender mounted starter solenoid, new clutch master cylinder and safety switch, some other new wiring as it was damaged and caused a charging issue.
All I can think of is to test the grounds and wires. Take a multimeter to it and see. Ill check the fuses too for good measure.
It runs and drives mostly normal. I have a temp sensor thats going screwy but thats the only oddity.
Is there anything else I should check while im at it?
-1993 Ford F250 XLT 351w/5.8L w 5-speed manual for reference.
