Your description does not rule out a bad battery. Make sure the cable connections are clean and connected correctly. Assuming this is all good check the voltage with a DC volt meter. A fully charged battery should test 12.85 Volts. If it is very near 12 or lower it is a week battery. With jumper cables or other means to get good voltage try and start it again. If is start you have a bad or week battery. If you get it to run check the voltage again while it is running. The meter should now read 13.5 -14.0 volts. If not above 13 volts it is not charging properly causing the battery to run down.....................

if you are talking about the trans no! the 2wd trans has a longer output shaft than the 4x4 you can have the shaft changed so that it can work if you are having trouble finding a trans.

New battery new batterycabel ends started ,now it wont even click no power to anything


Sounds like a fusible link burned out. Check the wires at the battery cable post of the starter. The smaller wires connected here are the fusible links if equipped. If not then check where the smaller positive cable off the battery goes to the fuse box. It will be connected to fuses there which could be burned out.

Car wont start. power to accessories. wont turn over. wont even click. new battery ad new starter. any ideas?


Hello,
If you not even have a click this narrows it down to only a couple of areas. Most likely it is a ground issue. I for sure would really check your cable and connection from your battery. The hot lead and more importantly the ground that goes to the frame. If it is not clean and grounded real good, you will not even get a click. if you turn key on and hear nothing, it is for sure the connections from battery to ignition. Now, if you can turn on head lights and all that, that mean your getting power to your ignintion and battery is good, now what this means is the connections from your starter that go to the battery are not good. Check those real good. I am almost positive this is going to be a connection problem of starter and battery. keep me posted MIke

My 1980 ford bronco wont start. replaced solenoid and starter and it dose the same thing. wont crank wen i disconnect and reconnect battery and i try to start it all it dose is it clicks and everything...


it sounds like the battery has a problem with it and needs replacing,as you try to start the truck it pulls all the voltage out of the battery(which is very little in the battery)causing the clicking sound you hear,make sure the battery cable connections are tight and clean,both the terminals and cable ends.it takes very little voltage to power up a radio or lights and they probably stop working shortly after they are turned on.
