1995 f150 wont start....click

I have a 1995 f150.... one night everything was fine...the next morning i went out to start it and all i got was a click.... I removed the battery terminals....cleaned them....threw the charger on the battery until it showed fully charged.... again just a click....

then tried "jumping" the selenoid on the fender....still just clicks....

tapped on the starter itself to "loosen" anything stuck up....still just a click.

also shifted between P and N thinking it could be the neutral safety switch...but that appears to be working like it should.

if i hold the key in the start position for to long its like the battery disconects! have to put charger on it again....and it reads full charge....but still just clicks....

i hate to have to just start throwing parts at it! any tips? or pointers to get me in the right direction??

Have you tried jump starting it? Check the voltage at the battery when you try crank it?

Try a different battery. A bad battery won't charge. If the electrolyte is low, it can cause many problems. Clicking noise without having the engine crank is a sure sign of a bad battery. As Bert mentioned, if you have a voltmeter, check the voltage of the battery.

If you have another vehicle at the house, swap batteries. Even if it's a car battery, it'll be enough oomph to start it. I used a 450CCA battery in my Durango for a few weeks until a store got in my 750CCA size. I had no issues and that's with towing the utility trailer.

Re: 1995 f150 wont start....click

Either the start relay contacts are burnt or the starter brushes are worn.
Check for voltage on the cable from the start relay to the starter when trying to crank.
If none the relay is NG.
If ok, the starter is NG or the cable/wiring at the starter..
You only have two parts to look at. Find out which one it is.
Good luck.
