Question about 1993 Ford Tempo

2 Answers

1993 Tempo suddenly won't start.

Car was running fine, next morning went to start it and got only a click. Tried to jump-start, but that did not work. Someone suggested changing the solenoid, but that did not work either. Had just recently changed spark plugs.

Could problem be in ignition switch or alternator?

We had this happen too and could not find the problem. The car would finally just start with us not knowing what we did to fix it. At last we caught it by "jiggling" the gear shift and the car would start. There is a transmisson safety switch on top of the transmission that is causing the problem and that needs to be replaced. Good luck!

If by jumping it didnt start the car and the solonoid is clicking you starter must be at fault.
when you take it in for the new or rebuilt on they can check it to make sure.
good luck

My 1993 Ford Tempo (automobile) will not start when I turn the key. A clicking sound comes from the driver's side of the engine compartment. The pre-start charge begins, but then nothing.


Sounds like a battery problem. Get a jump and if the vehicle starts replace your battery. If the vehicle won't start using a jump have the starter solenoid checked.
