Check your positive battery cables for corrosion. That is what happened to
mine. However you also might have a flat spot on your starter. It will work
for a while but eventually it will take a hike.

Hope this helps

Subject: FTE Small - click, click, click

Hey all,

I have a '94 Explorer XLT 4x4 auto with about 75k miles.

Sometimes when I go to start the truck all I hear is a single 'click' and
the truck will not start until I turn the key again.

It seems kind of random in that the amount of time since the last running
does not seem to be a factor. If their is no 'clicking' the truck starts
easily.

The 'clicking' started about 2 months ago as a once-a-week kind of thing
that I did not pay any attention to, but yesterday I had to turn the key 5
times before the truck would start. In between when I first noticed the
proplem and yesterday I would sometimes have to turn the key 2,3 or 4 times
- - click, click, click. The problem is increasing both in frequency and the
number of 'clicks'.

The truck will start easily, rev to about 1100 rpm and settle down to a
quiet idle of about 650 rpm after about 10 seconds.

Any ideas ?

Thanx dan >>

Hey, cuz...
It's probably your positive battery cable.
You might try doing the remove/clean trick. If that doesn't do it, replace
the cable.

Could also be your starter solenoid, which sits on the left fender well.
