Is anyone out here had any problems with their starter solenoid going bad? My has just went bad and I thought I would start a thread with some feedback on others having this issue also

Yes. On my F-53. I had a heck of a time diagnosing it.


My advice is worth exactly what you paid for it.

What do you want out of a 24 year old solenoid. For $30 you can replace the contacts which are the same as those in a BigBoy.


This post is my opinion (free advice). It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

The solenoids can be purchased/replaced separately (new) as opposed to buying the entire starter assembly. (new/rebuilt) Most stick and brick auto parts stores can help you. Online available too. It's a very common item. I suggest you buy an OEM replacement. Should be about $45.00. You'll be up and running in no time.

Well,
It would be nice to know what year/make/model/chassis/engine/mileage of what we're trying to help with here.
