Won\'t Start (revisited)
I've posted about this before, and it's similar to cjcreapers problem, but here is the twist. It was solid dead, so I took the battery and soleniod/starter to Autozone. They strapped in the battery it came back good, they had a testing machine, it read good.
They strapped in the soleniod/starter and grounded it and hit it with starting voltage, it turned over great.
Now, I put everyting back in, clean off the connections, and it's still dead.
Well, I saw one of the plugs going to what my manual calls a Motocraft soleniod off, I plug it in, no good, I try another post that's open, and it starts to turn.
here is the layout of the piece
- BAL Batt --
- EGR SOL --
_ I G --
Some of the posts were on an angle, and I marked what went where when it started, ironicaly It started when the cable coming from the starter/soleniod was on EGR, and I was open.
I'd like to think that I=Ignition, G=ground, Batt=Battery, SOL=soleniod and I have no idea what BAL is.
I'm going to try and jump start it now, but does it sound like this thing is just shot?
The haynes manual doesn't go into detail on what this is on page 5-14.
It didn't jump start before.
It sounds like I have 2 soleniods? is this right?
