Electrical problem
1992 Ford Aerostar 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 300000 miles

when I turn the key to start the van, I get nothing but a few clicks under the hood, which I traced to some relays(or some thingys) mounted next to the selenoid, and have wire connectors/harness that click into them. I replaced the ignition switch, starter, selenoid, battery, and ignition cylinder. Before replacing anything, I could start it by bridging the selenoid. I still have to bridge it to start, what else could be the problem?

Hi: really the only thing left is the starter relay or a broken wire to the starter. Have you checked to see if you are getting power to the relay?

Ive replaced the solenoid, but where is starter relay? The wires to starter are fine, and I just replaced ignition coil and still can only start by putting key in run and jumping the solenoid with screwdriver

There should be a relay block under the hood.
