I recently had a new battery installed in my 2004 Endeavor, but now when I go to start it , it won't start. The place that installed it fixed the problem, but it seems to be not a solution all the time. It will start over and over again before not starting after sitting over night. The battery was tested and has full power. Alternator was tested and full charge...My step dad and myself took off the cables and cleaned rigoriusly and it started, but this morning it did it again. I open the hood and wiggle the cable and what do you know it starts. What could the problem be?

Re: Battery Problem maybe?
You haven't explained if engine is turning over when you say "wont start" if it wont turn over,could be starter motor sticking, when you say wiggle cable do you mean battery leads
if red , clean connection at starter motor/solenoid

Depending on the make you can go online, search the make/model/serial number on specialist website that will sell you the code for a couple of bucks. As you didn't provide this in your question I couldn't test run it for you. Serial number may be in the drivers book or remove radio and it will be on the back. Has nobody written it in the owners books anywhere? Next time hook up a small motorcycle battery to your main batt leads before you remove the main batt and this will keep the codes in place while you swap the main batt.
some of these newer cars have an electrical cut out made into the system so it childproofs the controls..this option may have failed entirely on your vehicle.. its usually a switch or relay issue..I have found in my experiences with auto electrical that if you attach a battery charger to the car in place of the battery itself(disconnect it entirely) that some relays will buzz if they are stuck or not working right..try this and see what it does..
hello allen team it seems to me that either your alternator isnt working properly and you will notice the battery light on andn it wont charge battery or you have bought the wrong battery as far as cranking amps i just bought the battery for my 04 endeavor and it had to be a 750 cca meaning cold cranking amps try to make absolutly shure that you have the right one there for the battery puts out the right amperage thus able to start the vehicle bye turning the starter motor at the corect rpm
Most likely the computer thinks the car has been stolen and will not let it start. You will need to take it to the dealer and the will have to reprogram the computer and unlock the security system. Hope this helps.
