The starter relay is on the passenger side inside firewall, locate the small post and pull the (push on style) connector off, then with a screwdriver, contact that small post to the larger post that connects to the battery positive post. if that does not cause the starter to crank, then jump the two large posts to each other ( carful here, there will be a small spark when you do this). Let me know the results of this test and we will proceed to the next step. *** MAKE SURE THE TRANSMISSION IS IN PARK AND THE PARK BRAKE IS SET***

Hi Bob. Found the solenoid (which I knew ALL Fords have) I had forgotten! Tested and found nonfunctional. replaced. Then I had to put the clutch sw. back together. DON'T TAKE THAT THING APART; IT DOES NOT WANT TO GO BACK TOGETHER. Thanks for your help
Ford Mechanic: SuperBob, Ford Senior Master, Mazda Senior replied 6 years ago

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
