No spark or no gas. Are you sure the gas gauge acurrate? When you turn the ignition key from Off to Run, but not all the way to start, listen carefully for the sound of the fuel pump. If you don't hear anything, check the fuse. If the fuse is good the pump may be bad.

Remove a spark plug wire and hold the metal end close to [but not touching!] a metal ground [use a pair of insulated pliers to keep from possibly getting shocked. Have a helper crank the engine. If you see a spark, the ignition is probably ok, although that's not 100% certain, as the timing or dwell angle could still be off.

Good luck!

2002 ford explorer eddie bauer crank but won't start up.


Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

2002 Ford Explorer ran out of gas put gas in and won't restart. replaced fuel pump and fuel filter still won't start. Cranks but won't start


Most Fords have a fuel reset button. When you ran out of gas you tripped the circuit. Most of the time the button will be on the passenger side by the kick panel. The exact location should be in your owners manual or your local library or auto parts store will have a copy of one for your specific vehicle.

check for loose connector particularly the crankshaft sensor near the engine drive pulley.or fuel impact switch tripping but this is not a PATS problem since the starter cranks.
