Why do I keep having this electrical issue.

Asked by Feb 25, 2016 at 02:12 PM about the 1990 Ford Bronco II 2 Dr XLT 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1990 Ford Bronco II. I have replaced the starter 2 times, and the starter solenoid 3 times. My starter is staying engaged with the key even out of the ignition once the battery is reconnected. I have visually checked for frayed wires or disconnected ground wires. Has anyone heard of this issue?

1 Answer

Yes check the teeth on your flywheel especially the housing where it bolts to transmission. This one problem costed me hundreds of unnecessary dollars getting towed to shops & they kept telling me to replace starters & solenoids. Well I was about to pull motor & transmission, luckily I dropped transmission first & saw the housing bolts had busted completely out.
