I’ve got a 1993 Ford Aerostar XLT. Was running great until yesterday, when I turned the ignition and got nothing but a click every time the key was turned. Checked the battery (had power), bridged the relay (just got clicks but didn’t turn over)…so I concluded the starter was bad.
I installed a new starter motor/starter Selinoid today. The van started right up, but next start the engine kept cranking (even while van was running and after shutting off)…I had to disconnect the battery cable for it to stop. As you can imagine this really freaked me out. Next start the problem didn’t persist…but the time after that it happened again.
Any thoughts as to what is going on, or where to start in tackling this problem? Your help is greatly appreciated!
