Difficultly starting 2011 ford ranger, will attempt at starting and then go to the clicking sound. Would you be able to assist me with this problem?


Sounds like either a dead battery or a faulty alternator. Go to an auto parts store like Auto Zone and ask if they can check your battery and your alternator.

Good Luck!

I have a 2007 Toyota Highlander. We came back from a trip and the vehicle would not start. I went to jump it and the alarm went off. I disconnected the jumper cable and it stopped. When I reconnected...


Sounds like a bad battery. If the battery is OK than lock and unlock your Toyota with your fob. If it is still dead than take the better terminal cables off and touch the negative and positive cables together while both are disconnected and away from battery terminals. Should reset your anti theft system. Connect the cables back and try to start. again. If no crank likely bad battery. If battery is OK but no crank then it is the starter.

that cuts cause in 1/2 , 15min works.

Car cut off while driving


Hi,
Bad news....if you ran low on oil, the car likely sustained engine damage and will need major engine repair/replacement.

A mechanic can determine the exact issue.

The acr would not start. Battery works. I banged


If you banged on the starter motor and it started then you have a stickie bendix drive and solinoid sticking
But if you have to also jump start it as well then do this.....When it wont start before doing anything else turn on the lights and hit the starter and if the lights go dim or go out the battery is no good or you have a short in the eletc ...so take battery lead off for 2 days and if starts you have a SHORTin the eletrics

ENGINE CRANKS BUT WONT TURN OVER


you meant its a NO CRANK engine.
silent starter, say the word silent.
even the starter relay must click.
and if head lamps die, so will be the starter.
due to a dead battery,
sounds like a bad battery to me. dead or only
DISCHARGED.
if the Charge/battery lamp is off in the cluster driving. its ok. the alternator.

starter car with the jumper cables connected
and not next day.
only live jumps matter. or you go know where.
if you want to walmart they have tool there that
tests the alternator
battery
and for phantom drains all in 6 min work, the tool does all the work.

if the battery is charged, it will crank I bet
its discharging.
for 1 of 3 reasons.
1: its bad.
2: the charge system is dead.
3: phantom drains, it goes dead as you sleep
the head lamps dead is the big clue there.
