I too am having a similar issue. My solenoid died about a week ago. Replaced it the next day, and the replacement crapped out a couple days later. Anyone have any suggestions on making this problem stop. I am driving a 1990 F150 XLT Lariat.

Might have just been a bad replacement solenoid. Tell us how the first solenoid died and also how the replacement solenoid died. Also, where did you get the replacement solenoid?

Not a clue really as to how I killed the first solenoid. Maybe hit the potholes of Seattle too hard on my way home last Sunday. Got the replacement one from Autozone. Didn't do anything rough with the truck since then. The solenoid just stopped working a couple days later.

Take it back to the zone for a refund & then buy an Echlin or Standard brand relay from NAPA, CarQuest, Parts+Plus, Advance, or O'Reilly. Get the later style.

I would spend the money and get a Ford Motorcraft solenoid. There has been a lot of problems with aftermarket solenoids, especially those from the zone.
