1994 Ford Explorer only starts with screwdriver.

Asked by Sep 18, 2016 at 06:56 PM about the 1994 Ford Explorer 4 Dr XLT SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently bought a 1994 Ford. It started fine for
The past 3 days. Today I decided to take it to
Orellys for a code read since it drove 35mph by
itself,I don't know why it revs up on its own too. But
after a code read and no codes I left there and
when I went out to start my truck it wouldn't start.
Radio and dash lights were on. Replaced the
solenoid,checked fuses. I have to start The truck
with a screwdriver to the solenoid. New
battery,new alternator,and the voltage on
everything is good. What could these 2 problems
possibly be?
