New charged battery in 2004 Mountaineer, but it won't start.

I replaced old battery. New one is charged, but car will not start. Starter does not click or anything. Interior, exterior lights work, radio works and gauges light up. Any ideas?

    I have a 2002 Mountaineer with a good battery and good connections to the battery and starter. All power is on in the car, but the starter does not operate - no click, no extra load on the battery (voltage does not drop when key is turned to start).

2001 mercury mountaineer starts fine but sometimes won't start at all

I'm going to first assume that you've checked the battery terminals for gunk build-up. If the electrical system is OK, then the problem likely lies in the gas delivery. You might want to check out the starter anyway. Also, replace the fuel filter and put some Sea Foam or equivalent carb/electric ignition jet cleaner in the gas tank. I might add that your car is 17 years old. Start looking. . .

Where is starter located on 2004 chrysler pacifica???

Look around the "back" of the engine beside the transmission. The Starter connects to the flywheel to start the engine.
If you are replacing the starter you may want to consider doing this first;
) Have the charging system checked. Many auto parts stores and Sears will do this for free.
) Clean the battery terminal/connectors.
) Check the wiring from the battery to make sure it's good.

If you replace the starter yourself;
) Does your car have an anti-thief alarm ? If so find how to reset it if the battery is disconnected. Some alarms will shut down the car if the battery is disconnected !!
) Disconnct the wiring to the starter.
) Remove the bolts holding the starter. Remove the harder one to reach first.
) Pull out the old starter.
) Put it the new starter.
) Bolt the new starter in. Put the easier bolt to reach first.
) Connect the wiring to the new starter.
) Re-connect the battery.
) If necessary reset the thief alarm.
) Take the old starter back for a core charge refund.
