I have a 1987 B350 ext with a 5.9 360.. There was nothing when I turned the ignition. Bypassed the issue and installed a push start and it fired right up..

Tried to restart, same issue again..

Any Ideas??

Are you saying you bypassed the ignition switch and installed a push-button starter switch?

You could have a faulty factory ignition switch, or a faulty neutral start switch, or a misadusted shift linkage that makes the neutral start switch not operate properly. Try putting the van in neutral and using the stock ignition switch to start the engine.

Hi Scott, Kim, and Van! Welcome to the site. I looked through all my books back to 88. I believe that the 88 360 was a carb motor too. So. Your 87 might be different, but 88 shows a relay in the starter circuit. Also test procedures for solenoid and relay test.

All the conditions Reed described apply. A 1987 Bvan factory service manual would be infinitely helpful in diagnosis.

All diagnosis assumes sufficient battery voltage, adequate ground. All connections should be checked as well. Basics...

Good Troubleshooting you two!

It has the wiring diagrams you need as well as all the other information you might need to work on your van.
