The ground cable of my 99 ford f250 LD 5.4 V8 from the battery to the starter was corroded off at the starter.

Istill will not turn over but it did when I held the corroded wire to the starter. That is why I want a diagram so I can see if the original wir

My 1999 Ford F250 Light Duty Truck has a corroded cable that goes to the starter. I replaced the ground cable that goes from the battery to the starter and it still will not turn over. I left the original wiring there and think that there may be a wire that splits off the main cable that is not on the off the shelf wire I purchased. I am hoiping to see a wiring diagram for the starter and ground wires.


The ground cable is just that. as long as it connects from the battery to the engine and another cable from the engine to body or the battery to the body, thats OK.. Now the 2 positive cables goes from battery to the starter solenoid on the fender an ... 1999 Ford F250 Regular Cab

No obvious short found, Any ideas ???

I have a 2001 buick park avenue with a 3.8L v6 that I replaced. I am having a problem finding out where the ground wires go. I try to start it and the starter doesn't engage and everything goes dark everytime. I know the starter is good. It is an electrical issue. I'm not sure if I have the starter connected properly. And there are 3 black colored wires with metal tips to screw them to something coming out of the same wire harness that I don't know where they go. Please help me.

I have a problem with the trailer light connector on my '05 F250 diesel. The test indicator shows right blinker and left blinker but no tail lights. No lights on the trailers (have connected boat and utility trailer to truck) work. All the truck fuses under the dash are fine. I dropped the spare tire and removed and wire brushed the ground wire connected to the frame rail. Still nothing. What should I try next? Is there a wiring harness or converter that I can check?

Plain 1986 2.0L 4cyl. My 72year old neighbor took his starter out. I only removed the top bolt, as he couldn't fit his hand there. (I'm a 45 year old ex-female mechanic and have small hands.)
