1973 won't start
1973 f100 360 won't start. Replace the
battery, starter,starter solenoid, ignition
coil and fuel and I turn the key and a red
brake light turns on and it won't even
turn over to try to start just nothing.
Please help I'm new to the Ford
Try jumping the solenoid on the fender from the big stud that has the battery cable on it to the small terminal. If the starter kicks in then there is no juice going to the small terminal when you turn the key to the start position meaning something wrong down by the ignition switch, either needs to be adjusted or it is bad. Now when you jump from the big stud with the battery cable on it to the small terminal and nothing happens then that solenoid is not working and should be replaced.
Use a screwdriver, something insulated on one end to hang onto.
