EXTREMELY weird NO start problem! HELP! 1988 5.0
i have a 1988 mustang that I swapped a 93 5.0, the whole harness was changed over etc, the fuel pump is on a hot wire so it will always pump right now. When I go to start it, it starts but shuts off right away every time, has new ignition switch, tumbler, solenoid. Noooow the weird part...I can take the starter wire off the solenoid, ziptie the key in the START position and touch the wire to the solenoid to get it to crank and it will run perfect! I am Beyond confused with this as this is my first ford I have ever owned!
