1986 bronco II no start/ chatter clicking

well as the title says my bros 1986 bronco II will not start. The starter solenoid just constant(chatter) clicking until we stop trying to start it (it clicks constant the whole time). we also put a new starter in. If we jump the battery (he needs a new 1) with my jeep & jump the 2 solenoid bolt posts, nothing happens. no clicks. If we jump the 2 solenoid bolt posts with the key on it sparks bad. tomorrow we are going to check the batt cables +/- & see if that helps. also we do know the ign. switch & clutch safety switch are good cause if we don't push in the clutch it wont even click at all. anything else to look @ ?

thanks alot guys.

also how many wires go to the starter ? 1, 2 or more? when we got the bronco II the starter was in the front seat.

thanks.

honestly i would change the solenoid anyway if you just changed the starter. its cheap and recomended. and i would get a good batt. before going any further you may not have a good connection on the jumpers which is adding to complications. if it doesnt work then someone could more accuratly(sp?) point you to the problem.

When you put the jumper cables on the second solenoid bolt, nothing is supposed to happen!!

On the front of the solenoid, between the big bolts are one or two smaller ones. If it has 2, you need to jump the first small one to the first big one to make the starter spin.

Some ford starters have a solenoid on the starter too, like a GM starter. You must run a small wire jumper or supplied jumper from the small post to the battery terminal on the starter solenoid to make it work with the firewall mounted solenoid.


Clear as mud??
