I have a question about my 1997 F 150 that will not start. When you turn the key all you hear is a single click. Then if you wait a while, try a few times more, sometimes all of a sudden it starts.
Any sugestions? I replaced the selenoid on the starter about 3 months ago, and I am now woundering if it may be the relay, mounted on the passengers fender, or if I should just replace the starter and selenoid together.
My guess is the fender mounted solenoid, cheap guess and easy to get to. Most times one click per turn of the key is solenoid..multiple clicks per turn of the key is insufficent (sp) voltage to the starter or a bad starter.
