2001 F150 Starter not engaging.
My truck (01 f150 w/ 5.4) is not starting at all. Not cranking or anything.
Recently the main power cable to starter corroded away while at work…ended up shoving wire into broken end into the end of starter bolt where it broke off and was able to start it and get home….resulting in me having to change harnass.
Thats done now it won't click or anything. Battery is at 13.2v. I removed starter and had it tested at o'Reillys and is reading fine. I took off ground from frame and sanded living !#^& out of frame and added a copper washer for better contact and made sure the firewall ground is also fine.
I've had a test light down on starter while someone is trying to start it and getting good reading until they go to start it….when key is turned to start position the power drops to nothing.
I've also tried jumping battery even though it is good and had a battery from another vehicle try. Oh and I tried starting it from both neutral and park just incase the switch suddenly broke.
Is dit een goede vraag?
