93 fox no power to starter!
93 5.0 I just replaced head gaskets on isn't getting any power to the starter. Before I replaced the gaskets it turned over fine. Wondering If I missed a ground that anyone who had this problem knows about? Its got a new relay and starter just not doing anything when I try to crank the engine. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Are you getting power at the starter solenoid? post on the top. and is that little boot connector connected to that top post. Did you remember the ground on the back of the drivers side head?

No power to solenoid either and yet the boot is connected. The ground on the head I did remember but maybe I'm not making good connection?

yea, i dont think that ground would affect it. you checked power to the solenoid with the key in the start position right? its only going to send power when the key goes to the start position

Yea key was on when I checked. But like you said it's acting like the boot isn't connected but it is.

ok, you can try this if you want just to make sure the it turns. stick a screwdriver between the big posts on the solenoid, make sure its in neutral. i just went through this last night. lol. took me about two hours to figure out that one of my wires got switched.

all your fuses are good right? neutral safety switch connected, and you can also test power coming out of the ignition switch under the column just a little bit beneath the wheel. there will be a white/pink wire coming out of the ignition switch, test power at that and see what you get. that wire sends power out to the solenoid .once again test this with the key trying to start the car

My sister's husband and I went through something similar when we were wiring up the convertible he's building for her. It was the chassis ground. Remember, there's an engine AND chassis ground, make sure both are connected. Also, the ground MUST NOT be contacting any paint AT ALL. It will not properly ground, if at all. Check them, insure proper ground, then try again.
