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

Poor Mileage I just bought a 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid from a dealer. One owner car serviced thru same Ford dealer, 41k miles. Only glitch in Carfax report was check and later replacement of battery cable. Driving it carefully/softly for two days, I am getting maximum 24 miles to the gallon!! Realizing FWD may give me fewer mpg, I am still shocked. I am feeling very vulnerable right now as a female driver. Any advice guys would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you kindly.

My 1998 ford mustang 3.8 had a failure of the ground wire at the battery. I installed a new end and tried to start the engine. The engine cranks but would not start.

I checked the fuel rail schrader valve and there was no pressure. I reset the emergency shutoff and pulled the fuse and checked, it was ok. There was power at the fuse
