You probably have something that is staying on and draining the battery. You need to have an "ignition off draw" test done.

Check your battery for a full charge. You can do this by turning on the headlight and seeing if they are bright. If not then charge your battery. If so then you probably have the solenoid on the starter going out and will need to have the starter / solenoid assembly replaced.
Hope this helps!

I have a 2007 f250. Recently got a new alternator, battery and starter. Still having problems with it starting in the morning. What else can it be.


By your post ,i'd say you have no idea how your vehicle work's . Replacing part's an hoping you fix isn't the way . Testing the electrical circuit's ,hooking up a scan tool an checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's ,viewing engine scan data etc... IS
Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop.

Changing the computer is easy , it's what comes next that is the difficult part . Changing computers requires programming the new one . Dealer only ! Special tools needed .
Looking at a wiring diagram to see what all is involved in the elctrical circuits would be a good first step . Then leaning how to trouble shoot automotive electrical systems would be good also.

have a load test done on the battery to check for dead cell, have the alternator out put checked by an accredited auto electrician. If the battery is good and the alternator is ok then look at the starter. Pull it and have it bench tested before you waste money on a new one.

2006 Ford taurus won't start, starter, altlernator, battery replaced, ignition starter switch, neutral safely switch changed, still nothing


I looked at info for your security system, it is starter motor disable. I didn't see 06 ford Taurus in my database, so I looked at 05.
Battery has a full charge and battery connections all good?
We can usually do some tests to see if starter motor will crank the engine, but, if the security is the problem, it still won't start.
You can check for applicable trouble codes? Try a different key?

Get a clicking sound when I try to start my 1995 Nissan Pathfinder


Check ALL your connections. Take each Batt terminal off and scrape them or buy a Batt. brush from parts store/cheap 7 bucks. If you can jump it it may be the Batt. has just gone.. Clicking means you have a bad connection or the Batt is shot.
