The usual cause for that is a failing starter relay.(aka starter senoid). It's located on the passenger fender well near the battery. They are cheap and available at all part stores.

And the cheap chinese replacement relays tend to work one time before doing the same thing. Make sure the battery is fully charged and the cables, positive and negative, are in good condition. Clean all of the connections from the battery to the starter (positive) and block (negative). Highly suggest sourcing a USA made starter relay.

Fully agree! We see this all the time in classic Mustang world. The new solenoids are junk. I'd rather have a used Ford unit than a brand new reproduction...too many failures!

In a pinch you can hit the starter solenoid or the starter to see if it releases when it's stuck. Obviously it's a one time fix to avoid further damage to the starter system.
