I have a 1991 Ford Explorer XLT w/a 4 liter 6 cyl engine and just over 100k miles. This issue started out of the blue, no warning signs. I jumped in to go to work and after I turned the key I got one click out of the starter then lost all power (no interior lights, no radio, etc). I tapped on the starter to see if that would resolve it but no joy! While checking the battery connections (they were fine) I got power back? Gave it another try and same issue. Had to leave for work and when I came back I had power again so I tested the starter, the problem started again (no start and no power). I tried a battery from my other vehicle, as the one in the explorer is old and small, and got a lot more clicking out of the starter, I didn't loose power, but it still didn't turn over. I'm back to the 1st battery and replaced the starter yesterday and original issue persists(one click form starter then power loss). Before I start replacing a ton of stuff I was hoping for some advice. I'm on a low bugjet and have no cc so the parts I buy are precious. Thanks for your help!
