Question about 1998 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

98 Ford Exploer wont start. Changed the battery all it does is clicks.

Thought it was the battery so we bought a new one, It still wouldn't start. All it does is make a clicking sound. What could the problem be? The Starter?

Sounds like the electrical part of the ignition switch, not the lock cylinder that needs replacing.
Possible also that cutting that wire to the security module immobilized it.

Disconnecting the battery cable while the vehicle is running is a no no ! The electronic's on your vehicle , you can cause some serious problem's doing that . That was ok on 1960 era vehicles , from 1970 on with all the transistors in the electronic control modules ,you don't want to do that . You may have caused your problem yourself ! http://www.troubleshooters.com/dont_disconnect_battery.htm .Take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

98 Ford F150 w/4.6l Wont start. Hear fuel pump click. Have pressure on fuel rail. Pulled #1 plug from head and plugged back into wire. Grounded plug and cranked. No spark. Changed wires 4 and 7 four days...


have diagnostic codes checked to see if you have a cam or crank sensor fault. make sure fuel pressure is at the required pressure, just testing to see if you have fuel at the valve is not enough. replace all spark plug wires. if you replaced two then all are just as old and even when they "look good" does not qualify as "they are good". Replace coil pack. start up drive away happy

I'm thinking its the battery. Heat kills batteries. You said it wont jump start. That's a dead ringer for a bad battery. It may have enough juice to power some things, but wont run the starter, or the fuel pump, or the ignition(spark). Try a new battery and let me know!

Single click? More battery is needed. Id change the battery, or slow charge it.
Might also be the security system shutting down the starter. Common on GM vehicles. Heres a link on that. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/
