1993 ford f150 trouble shooting
I am trying to get a 1993 Ford f-150 running. It has been sitting for three
years and I don't know much about it. I just put a new battery in to see if I
could get it to turn over. I had dash lights and everything looked good, but
when I turned the key all the way, I heard a heavy 'thunk' and nothing
happened. It only happened the once, and now I'm not even getting the dash
lights. It was the right battery for the truck. What would cause this to
When vehicles are left unrun for extremely long times, moisture/corrosion can get into the electrical systems. That might be what's causing the no start problem. Might be a bad ground to the solenoid or a defective starter/solenoid, or even a defective ignition switch. Beyond that, when you get it running, you might see problems with lubrication and cooling systems if these fluids weren't prepared properly for storage.
