FORD BRONCO STARTER PROBLEM

1995 Ford Bronco • 139,000 miles

I recently changed out my starter and battery cables. I reinstalled it and hooked it up to the battery positive first but I am not getting any power to the vehicle. I took the batter to autozone for a test and it is 100% charged. I reinstalled the battery and still no power. I later checked the fuses and all are okay. I don't know much about the relay's and I assume that is the problem. Prior to deinstalling the starter I did a complete electrical check and all are okay. I am out of trouble shooting and other tests. Any thoughts?

OK FELLER

FAILED TO MENTION YOUR ENGINE

I GOT THE 5.0L (PIC 1)

AND THE 5.8L (PIC 2)

STARTING CIRCUIT DIAGRAMS FOR YOU

THIS SHOULD TELL YOU WHAT'S IN THE CIRCUIT AND MOST LIKELY WHERE TO FIND IT

BEFORE YOU START GOING CRAZY----INSURE THE "S" WIRE (EVENTUALLY MAKES IT'S WAY BACK TO THE IGN SWITCH) IS ON THE "S" TERMINAL ON YOUR STARTER RELAY

THE OTHER TERMINAL IS "i" (SOMETIMES NOT USED) IT IS A 12V OVERRIDE TO THE COIL WHILE THE KEY IS IN THE START POSITION---LIKE ON MY CJ 5 AND WILLYS JEEPS

YOU CAN SEE "S" EMBOSSED NEXT TO THE LITTLE TERMINAL, ON THE PLASTIC, ON THE SOLENOID IN THIS LINK
