My 2006 ford escape won't start but battery and alternator are good so why?

If the alternator is good and the battery is good then it's you're starter. Just in case check if you can jump start it then unplug the battery and jumper cable's if you're car keep's running then you're alternator is good if it die's as soon as you unplug battery/cables then you're alternator is died.

First use a battery charger to charge the battery, instead of a jump start. Second, with a complete dead battery you may want to pull the connection for the horn under the hood till the battery is completely charged.

1998 ford explorer alarm will not let car start door locks not working

The Security system will activate if the Battery is below standards. Have the battery checked. Even if you jump start it, as soon as the jumpers are removed the charging system may not work or the engine may die.

If you have another ignition key, try that. The ignition key has a Code in it and if it does not match the Codereader, it will not start.

My 93 ford explorer sport started to click then slow down and now it won't start up what could be the problem

sounds like the battery is dead. Try recharging the battery or try jump starting from another vehicle using jumper cables.

New starter, new relay and new battery...problem is...when I shut off engine and 30 minutes later went out to start again the key turned and nothing was like the battery was completely dead....

I suspect you have a loose or corroded connection. you should be able to check voltage at relay and if good, jump across from cable coming from battery to terminal from ignition switch. or u can bypass the relay completely by using a jumper cable to go from battery pos to output cable on relay that goes to starter.

Lights come on and radio and air works but there is only a click when I try to start it.Jumper cables did not work.

Dead battery

You can not jump a dead battery ,
dangerous practice.

The click is the starter solenoid

If the battery turns out not to
be the issue,then the solenoid
or the starter

Your battery could have a few dead cell, with jumper cable hook up, try to start engine, if all light go dim to off, replace battery, will not take a charge, replacing battery will take care of your problem.

I have a 1992 F150 5.0 that wont start all i hear is one loud click

This sounds like it is either a bad battery with a possible dead cell or a bad solenoid. If you haven't done so try jumping the vehicle by connecting ground to the engine block and disconnecting the positive cable from the battery and connect the positive jumper cable to the positive cable directly. If the vehicle starts then the battery has a dead cell. If it starts and dies when the cable is disconnected you ahve a faulty alternator or charging circuit.

2004 Ford explorer will not start

Sounds like connections or cables. They may appear to look good but if they are aftermarket terminal ends they get corrosion under the bolt down clamp that holds the wires in. If they are factory cables that are molded on to the ends of the wires the same thing can happen. The easiest and cheapest thing to try is to put aftermarket terminal ends on the cables. Make sure you wirebrush the ends of the cables after you strip them and tighten them evenly and securely. Also clean the battery side thoroughly. If this doesn't work check the starter relay. Its the first place the red cable bolts to after the battery. Check the connections and try putting a jumper wire between the battery positive cable and the small terminal marked with an "S". One of these solutions should take care of this.
