Make sure battery has 12volts and leave it connected, terminals clean, hook jumper vehicle, your car + to + and neg to good engine block or chassis ground. Now see if u have power, if car starts disconnect cables and read voltage dc at battery should read around 14 volts if not, your alternator is at fault.

When I put the key in my 2002 Ford Windstar SE and turn it over it does nothing battery has full charge when I put jumper cables on the van turns over but doesn't start


If you're certain that your battery is fully charged but won't crank the engine, check the condition and security of the battery leads, particularly the earth cable where it attaches to the engine block/bodywork. Remove/loosen the bolts and clean them.

A bad earth or faulty connection can cause starting problems. If the engine still will not crank you have to suspect the battery.

Then try jumper cables. Connect the black jumper cable from the donor vehicle to the engine block/bodywork -not to the negative terminal - on your own vehicle but connect the positive-red- cable to your battery in the normal way. Let the donor vehicle tick over for 5 minutes before trying to start your car.

If your car starts with a boost you have to suspect your own battery or cables.

If your car still does not start with a boost from a donor vehicle it is pointing towards another problem such as a faulty fuel pump or failed sensor.

A faulty electric fuel pump can be difficult to identify and replacement is usually the only option. However, if you can, try disconnecting the fuel line in the engine bay and turn on the ignition. Fuel should literally spray out.

Before you go down the path of changing a fuel pump get somebody to connect an OBCD - hand held scanner - to your car. The OBCD will pick up any error codes which will point you in the right direction .. i.e .. it may, for example, identify a crankshaft sensor fault.

Removal Procedure
Caution: Unless directed otherwise, the ignition and start switch must be in the OFF or LOCK position, and all electrical loads must be OFF before servicing any electrical component. Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent an electrical spark should a tool or equipment come in contact with an exposed electrical terminal. Failure to follow these precautions may result in personal injury and/or damage to the vehicle or its components.
Caution: Batteries generate hydrogen gas, which is extremely flammable and may explode violently if ignited by a spark or a flame. Battery acid is extremely corrosive and causes severe personal injury if the acid comes into contact with the skin, and blindness if the acid comes into contact with the eyes. In order to avoid severe personal injury, use extreme caution when servicing the battery or battery-related components.

Repacing fuel filter on 1996 intrepid


1) Relieve the fuel system pressure by first removing the fuel pump relay from the Power Distribution Center. Then, start the engine and let it to run until it stalls. Try starting it again and allow it to run until it stalls. Continue restarting the engine until the car will no longer start. Turn off the ignition.
2) Disconnect one electrical connector from an injector. Use an alligator clip to connect an end of a jumper wire to either injector terminal. Connect the other end of the jumper wire to the positive side of the battery. Then, connect an end of a second jumper wire to the other injector terminal. Very briefly touch the other end of the jumper wire to a ground.
3) Locate the fuel filter, which is part of the fuel pressure regulator mounted on the fuel pump module. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then lower the fuel tank. Disconnect the fuel lines from the filter.
4) Remove the fuel line from the pressure regulator. Remove the filter/regulator by pushing in on the locking tab on the filter as you turn the regulator to unlock it. Then, pull it straight up.
5) Push the new fuel filter into the fuel pump module. Turn to lock it in place. Connect the fuel lines, and then you can reinstall the fuel tank. Check for leaks when you start the engine on your Dodge Intrepid.

I know they're a mechanic, but they could be trying to cheat you out of your money. To verify this, you can jump start your car using another car. Using jumper cables, connect the positive(red) to the other positive on the other battery, and the black(ground/negative) to the other battery. Don't disconnect the batteries from the cars. Start up the car that works, then start the other car. If and when it starts, disconnect the jumper cables. If your not sure how to do this, i recommend you have someone else do it for you (not the mechanic).

Hi, is there any special things I need to know, short cuts or tricks in a removal and replacement of my battery in a 2000 ford mustang with a V6? thanks, Sarah

1. Ensure you are using the correct spec replacement battery.

2. In many vehicles the radios and sound systems will cease to function if the battery is disconnected and require the radio code (supplied with and unique to the vehicle) to be punched in to activate the unit once power is restored.
I am not sure if the 2000 Mustang has this feature.

Make sure you have turned off all electrical functions on the car and remove the key from the ignition.

3. Batteries are dangerous as they emit explosive gasses which can ignite easily with one spark.
Do not change the battery immediately after running the car. Open the bonnet and allow air to circulate for a while before changing. Wear protective eye wear and clothing when working with the battery and remove metal objects such as rings ,watch bands, bracelets etc. as these could accidentally touch a battery terminal and cause a spark. (Be careful as I have personally seen a car battery explode when gas emissions have ignited with a spark).

4. Disconnect the cable from the negative ( - ) terminal first. Using a spanner, loosen the nut on the cable end and gently remove the cable from the battery terminal. You may need to move it around a little on the terminal before it slides up and free. Disconnect the cable from the positive (+) terminal second by loosening the nut and gently removing the cable. Move the cables out of the way and place a plastic cover wrapping over both cable ends so they do not accidentally contact an exposed battery terminal.

To eliminate risk, wrap some plastic electrical tape around the old battery's terminals before removing it. This ensures no accidental contact with metal parts of the car when moving the battery. The new battery should have a plastic protection cap over each terminal. Do not remove these until the new battery is secured and you are ready to re-connect the cables.

5. The battery clamping system will need to be released to remove the battery.

6. Check the metal cable terminals for corrosion (the presence of white ashy material). They will need to be cleaned up before connection to the new battery to ensure good contact.

7. Install the new battery on the battery platform ensuring it is firmly and properly seated and clamped with the clamping system. Ensure it is properly secured before re-connecting the cables.

8. Connect the positive cables to the positive (+) battery terminal first and then the negative (-) second. (The reverse of removal). Do not overtighten the nuts on the cables when clamping them to the battery terminals.

9. I usually run a very light and thin smear of petroleum jelly over the metal cable ends and top of the battery terminal once everything is clean and connected up. Now replace the protector cover (if fitted to your vehicle)) over the positive cable end and you are done .

10. If your car radio is coded, disconnecting the battery will clear the code on the radio so ensure you have the code available to reset the car radio after the battery is reconnected.

Cars electrical system goes completly offline, nothing will illuminate or work until I disconnect the battery. When I turn the key to start the car everything shuts down again. Has anyone heard of this...


It sounds like a Body ground problem or a shorted Battery. Try using jumper cables and connect the NEG jumper cable to a body part on the Firewall. Then see if the lights and accessories work. You can leave the Battery cables in place. If the lights work, see if the car starts.

Dirty Battery cables can also cause this problem. So can a shorted Battery, though I would think a lightbulb would work with even a shorted Battery. Everytime you disconnect the Battery you are making a new connection when you reconnect the cables. The ends should be shiny not black.

You can eliminate the shorted Battery by disconnecting your Battery cables and use the jumper cables to bypass the Battery and use another vehicle to run yours via the jumper cables. They you will know if the Battery is shorted.

Autozone and Oreillys do free tests on Batteries and will scan your car for free if you can get it there.

My car will not turn over. Lights, radio and electric windows work. There are no sound turning on car.


Check battery voltage first. If this looks good, it could be a starter or ignition coil problem.
Try jump starting. See your owners manual for the correct procedure. (Usually you dont want to connect jumper cable terminal directly to the battery negative. Idealy to the chasis.)
Could be somthing as simple as the engine managment fuse too. When you turn the ignition on if the checkengine light does not come on, its is more than likely the fuse.
Start simple!
Good luck.
