Just bought a 92 hatch 5.0

Hello all, new to the mustang, but a loyal Ford owner. Just bought this car this weekend. I have wanted one if these since I was a kid, I'm 24 now. The body is pretty rough so I am searching for a rolling chassis now, but it has the 5.0 with what I would call lots of mods. It has the trick flow kit, blue injectors, hi flow fuel pump, headers, 4 core radiator, and more. I also got like 15 boxes if parts like E-fans and other stuff as well as the rear window louvers. Car sound great, needs a new plug wire as it rubbed the header on the way home and developed a bad spot in the shielding. The main issue now is the ignition- currently has a "rattler" alarm installed and I cannot get it to start unless it is jumped (solenoid) common sense told me to replace the solenoid, so I did..still have to jump it. I am thinking the alarm is not allowing it to start, I turn the key and everything kicks on, then roll the key to start and nothing, which tells me it's electrical between the switch and solenoid. Is there a way to disconnect these alarms to see if it is bad? I looked under the dash and its a mess, I'd like to remove it all together but not sure. Here's a pic of said car, and one of my pickup. I look forward to restoring this car, looks like it could take awhile!

I'm not sure about the alarm and starting issue but I see the trick flow intake but are the heads aluminum trick flow heads? The issue you are talking about with the header melting the plug wire boot sounds like a common problem with gt40p heads, especially if it's the number 7 cylinder. If they are, 90 degree plug wire boots can sometimes prevent that problem depending on what headers you have.

If anyone is local, I'd really like for someone who knows these cars to come by and take a look at it and tell me what I have. So far everyone was impressed with the engine setup, but no one can really breakdown what I have in it, me getting into the stang world, I'm just learning

Unplug it and it should allow you to crank the car even with the clutch depressed.

Under the dash, above the pedals. Do a search online if you dont have a haynes manual. A lot of forum discusions at other sites about this, a lot of people don't give info on it because they think idiots will bypass it.

Dude look online theres no good way to discribe it, its under the dash above the clutch pedal. You cant just unplug it, you have to jump it with a fuse

I can see the switch - tore out the aftermarket alarm too to see if that was the issue..it wasnt, but had to go anyways, re soldered all connections.. replaced ignition switch...this has to be the issue I hope! How do I go about jumping it with a fuse, I see it has plugs, but not the slightest idea on how to jump it.

After a little searching, I placed a 20 amp fuse in the plug with the 3 wires, two red / 1 blue iirc, still didnt fire. I turn the key and about the time it should turn over the air shuts off for a split second and the low oil light comes on ....wtf

the NSS is the only plug connected to the pedal box by the clutch/brake assembly. unplug it an see if the car will start/turn over.

I stand corrected yeah its a Clutch safety switch, but you know what I mean, there are two plugs on the connector, one needs to be jumped with the blade fuse, one doesn't if that doesn't do it for you, the CSS is not your issue.

I am at a lost- I am thinking the prev owner wired the solanoid up. I bought a new bw select solanoid but wired it how he had it. There was one smaller gauge wire on the post next to the battery, really small one in the center, and a huge cluster on the other side, I am assuming for the msd ignition ect.

---------- Post added at 09:30 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:29 PM ----------

I thought the battery cable went to the post closest to the battery, no? That's how my tractor is wired, I know this isn't a John Deere, but just didn't seem right

Would it make a difference if the old solanoid was 3 prong and this one is 4 prong? It has two small posts, and two large posts

Well, started early this morning and found some cool stuff from the prev owner (thankful) although it didn't fix my problem it gave me motivation to keep working on it- these are parts on the dates installed, prior to the car being parked in 2005.

Also the last photo is of mapquest directions to KCIR- this hits home for a lot of people as the city has since shut the track down, anyone who has ever raced drag locally has a sour taste about the city and what they did


Ok- back to wiring.

Fuseable link?! What the hell is it? This is the first time I have heard about it, and see it no where mentioned in my 92 explorer manual.

Did you require the ignition without the alarm on the car? Would the alarm go off whenever the car wouldn't start?
