Check the actuator rod that goes to the ignition switch. It runs along the top of the steering column. I have thew same year and model. Had the exact same problem. All lights work, engine wouldn't turn over.

2000 ford Taurus will not turn over tried everything I can think of battery fues and starter all good been sitting for 3 weeks will not start and the shifter is now not aligned properly


The engine will no crank , want to verify what you got happening Here . Do you have a crank - no start or a no crank no start ? Some people on here get this mixed up ! Or when you turn the key to the start position does anything happen ! If when you turn the key to the start position an nothing happens , check the start relay in the under hood fuse / relay box . # 22 also check fuse 30 - F107 40 amp , Do you know what a relay is ? Also check fuse F237 15amp fuse in the central junction box inside the car under the dash , could be left or right side .The shifter not aligned how , not in park ?

My 2008 Ford Escape has power. Lights work, wipers, everything works that has power but when I try to turn the key to start it nothing happens. I mean I don't even hear a clicking noise


Check the relays and fuses in the Power Distribution box under the hood. If all are good check the Alarm circuit ignition kill switch. If you didn't get the Alarm built into the vehicle but had it installed after you bought it remove the fuse from the Alarm power line to disable the kill switch. I did have this problem once and it turned out to be the battery on mine, a 2005 with Alarm built in. Unless you have the Hybrid version you could get in 2008 the vehicles are basically the same.

My 2005 F150 will not start I turn The Key and Nothing. Checked Battery it is good All connections seem to be good. I hear clicking in the passenger floor panel. Then sometimes the truck will just start...


When you say nothing, does that mean no power or you turn the key and there is no crank ?

If you turn the key to the run position ( do not start engine ) press and hold the brake and shift into neutral, and try to start, what happens ?

The other item to bench test is the start motor relay, which is in the cab fuse panel.

this is very common problem, theres a vacuum leak.check the vacumm lines under the hood also check the one that goes inside to heater controls, whats happening is that it looses vacuum when you accel because the motor takes it,theres a one way valve that holds the vaccum when this happens but with a leak it cant hold vacuum,heres a vacuum diagram to help you check the vacuum lines,i dont know which engine you have in that 150 but this will be close. take good look at the circled areas in the diagrams,good luck, hope this helps you.d3fa7c0.giff57ca3c.gif
