Asked by Jan 24, 2016 at 10:49 PM about the 1991 Ford F-150 XLT Lariat SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just put a new starter,starter solenoid and battery
in my truck and I have checked all the connections
and there all good it ran fine for about two months  
but today whenever I start my truck it runs for 2-3
seconds and makes this really loud grinding noise
then the Rpms shoot straight down and it shuts off
but nothing works with the key turned lights don't
work radio doesn't work power windows don't work
when you turn try to turn it over the light will work

The grinding noise could be caused by the ignition switch not turning all the way back to the "run" position, then engaging the starter while the vehicle is running. Can you tell where the grinding noise is coming from?


Sounds like u got 2 different issues. Identify noise and the other sounds like a wire might be shorting out
