The starter in a 1993 Ford Explorer is the most important part of the truck’s electrical system. The starter receives the electrical signal to engage the flywheel and start the engine. When the starter goes bad, the truck will not start. The starter is located under the truck between the engine and the transmission. Replacing the starter should take half an hour as it’s easily accessible and held to the frame by two bolts.

Removing the Old Starter

Raise the hood to locate the battery. Disconnect the battery before attempting any work on the electrical system.

Crawl under the vehicle on the passenger side. Locate the starter between the engine and the transmission.
