See my profile, I do not know your particular rig, but I try to help you G.I. !

Is it loose at starter end or other end?

If at starter end, is there a terminal (ring) still on the wire?

Are you holding the starter end of wire and there is a bolt/ screw and piece of metal sandwiched between the bolt/ screw and terminal?

Trying hard, Your rig is not my cup of tea, I'm Jeep CJ Guy.I do have a Explorer Manual somewhere in a pile of books, I will find it NOW, It may show a similar system to yours, while I wait for your reply. 01:17 my time, hurry, be accurate with desciptions!

WE ARE NOT TEXTING ON A CELL. ELABORATE!

Wire color?

Its ORIGIN? Where ever it is still attached

OTHER WIRES AT ORIGIN/ Sizes(pencil, 1/2 lampcord cord, use imagination) their colors

From starter end, use Clock directions to descibe locations of stuff. Remember never seen your rig!

Jeremy, You have supplied me with a total of 33 words, your decriptions are vague.

I do not know where your RED? WHITE? Wire originates (I mean, you have a attached end, and a loose end, What is it Attached to?)

You say, Goes to my starter, On the Fords I have dealt with, The starter wire is a BIG cable, and it is the only wire ON THE STARTER.

Are you talking about the SOLENOID (STARTER RELAY)?

AT PRESENT, I HAVE WRITTEN SOME 233 WORDS TO YOU.

IT IS 02:24 AM here, 10 minutes I'm in the bed if you don't respond!

Are you in a bind right now?

Pictures in this Ranger/Explorer/Mountaineer 1991-99 Book has diagrams and so far POOR PICs.

I feel sure the Solenoid (starter relay) is gonna be the same as yours, But different than the older Ford style.

The wires Probably do the same exact functions as older stuffjust looks different.

If you know how to test wires with a voltmeter, you might determine which one is loose and where it goes.

MEANWHILE, I WILL LOOK IN MANUAL FOR BETTER INFO TO YOU MORE TONIGHT IF YOU ARE IN A BIND.

IF NO BIND, I WILL CONTINUE IN THE MORNING....CONTINUE WITH YOU THEN.

THIS STUFF BELOW, MAY HELP NOW

PLEASE REPLY NOW, BEFORE YOU READ THE REST, AND START TESTING!!!

Yours May Not Look Like This (MY PIC), but TAKE STUFF LOOSECLEANTIGHTEN WELLDO NOT JUST PASS IT OFF AS, "IT LOOKS GOOD".

FOLLOW YOUR POSITIVE BATTERY WIRE, IT WILL END UP AT MR. SOLENOID

Do not leave off where the Battery cables connect to the Battery clamps! (not the posts) Do them too!

While you are at it, Both ends of Pos cable, Both ends of NEG cable. (grounds to engine and frame is included)

If you still have the problem, you're probably looking at $20 to replace the SOLENOID. Follow Battery Positive cable to find it.

My stuff may be OVERKILL, but at least you will know what everything is and does.

Like my newly made "NELSOMATIC" stuff? I am cyber stupid, and did that! Keeps me from hunt and pecking so much!

Please Reply, (I get few) Good or Bad. I spent alot of time doing this, I am a member, just like you, NO PAY FOR ME! Just a hobby while laid up, with foot injury (15 months so far)

I will continue to try to help you through your whole ordeal, even if this didn't help you. Just continue to Reply at "reply to question".

Love, Turddog

"FORD TYPE" SOLENOID SYSTEM, YOUR ACCES., MAY VARY

1) POSITIVE CABLE FROM BATTERY

2) OUT TO STARTER MOTOR

3) ON MY JEEP, THIS GOES TO THE ALTERNATOR

4) THIS FEEDS MY FUSEBOX (ALL OF MY ACCESSORIES)

5) "S" WIRE IS FROM KEY, 12V ONLY WHILE YOU ARE "CRANKING"

THIS WIRE ACTIVATES THE SOLENOID'S ELECTROMAGNET, WHICH IN TURN, CONNECTS---A & B INTERNALLY (ONLY THE 2 LARGE GAUGE CABLES CAN HANDLE THE AMPERAGE THE STARTER "PULLS").

WHEN THE SOLENOID IS ACTIVATED, IT THROWS 12V TO STARTER USING THE LARGE GAUGE CABLES (1) POS FROM BATT--THRU SOLINOID INTERNAL CONNECTION--(2) TO THE STARTER, WHILE KEY IS IN "CRANKING" MODE.

THIS IS THE TOTAL REASON FOR A SOLENOID, BECAUSE IT WOULD NOT BE PRACTICAL, TO RUN THE HEAVY CABLES TO AND FROM YOUR KEY SWITCH.

6) "I" WIRE (OPTIONAL), FEEDS COIL "FULL 12V", ONLY WHILE "CRANKING", AFTER YOU RELEASE THE KEY, THE COIL REVERTS BACK TO REDUCED VOLTAGE, SUPPLIED BY YOUR KEY IN THE "RUN" POSITION.

7) "MOUNT" GROUND, UNIT MUST HAVE A GOOD GROUND (BATT. TO ENGINE, ENGINE TO FRAME, FRAME TO BODY [ALL MUST CONNECT, SOMEHOW] )

(3 & 4, ON MY JEEP) ARE FUSABLE LINKS, ALL ARE NOT MARKED, MY #3 IS, #4 IS NOT....ITS SORT OF A "WIRE" FUSE.

IF THEY ARE GOOD, TUGGING ON THEM WILL BE JUST LIKE A WIRE, WHEN THEY ARE "BURNED UP", THEY WILL STRETCH OUT LKE A RUBBER BAND.

Do not ask me car computer questions (90s on up), I am not up to par on that subject!

Ask me anything else! Reply and let me know your outcome.

JUST A LITTLE LOOK OF CONCERN FROM ONE OF MY 2 BABIES!

5th word makes no sense,

Solenoid Piggybacks starter?

Will it crank?

Run?

What happens when you try?

Editted last answer, see very bottom, to answer your other question.

Leads to Positive what? Where?

BIND?

Now let me get this exactly right

Red wire is loose, but hooks to solenoid somehow, solenoid piggybacks starter. Tracing red wire back, 12volts is present at the other end. When/ all the time/ key on only/ only while starting.

Instead or Riggering it together, what about getting a new solenoid. Do it right?
