Hi guys, I just discovered a new problem the other night. Drove my Z around for a while and shut it off to talk to a neighbor for less than 5 minutes and when I tried firing it back up it did nothing. No clicks, no cranks, nothing. Luckily I was able to push start it and get it in my garage. After sitting for an hour or so, I went out in the garage, turned the ignition, and it cranked over. Has anyone else experienced this? Could my selonoid or starter be getting too hot and not functioning? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Note: I do not have a heat shield protecting my starter (not much clearance between headers and starter), that's why I thought maybe the heat was playing a factor here.

Thanks...

DjD,

Sorry about this, but I just realized this should be in the Trouble Shooting section. Can you move it there for me?

Thanks...

You need a Ford solution! Search the archives.

Thanks guys....


Mark, I did a search and found what you were referring to. I'm now LMAO, because when I first read your response, I thought you were telling me to go buy a Ford to solve my problems and just shook my head in disbelief. Then I thought stingr69 wouldn't treat me like that, so sure enough I did a search for "Ford solution" and found it. It sounds like a fairly simple fix. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
