Car isn't starting

Asked by Sep 09, 2015 at 10:56 AM about the 1999 Ford Mustang STD Coupe

Question type: General

So my car won't start for some
reason.  I have tried switching out
the starter and replaced the battery.  
For some reason when I got to turn
the car on I only hear one click from
the starter and that's it.  I can still
push start the car no problem but for
some reason I can't get the starter to
engage.

If you have replaced the starter and the battery, and you can push start the vehicle, demonstrating that the motor will turn, then try looking at the starter relay, that may be bad.

Well I know it will start that way I've done that a few times now but thanks I'll check that next

Starter solenoid is not making internal contact. Replace it.

I bought the starter brand new from oreillys and it came with the solenoid already attached. When me and my buddy tested it the first time it would engage and so we tightened all the wires and when we installed it we first would get multiple clicks like teeth were grinding so we took it off inspected it and put it back in and then when Id turn the ignition we only got one click and then nothing.
