Could be two things. Older cars have problems with a build up of resistance in the ignition circuit this can cause the car not to start. The fix for this is a new ignition switch (the electrical part not the key part) or your battery is either going dead or is very weak. Charge the battery and see if that helps. Be aware, if your maintenance free battery is more than 5 to 7 years old, it should be replaced.

Good luck!

What would cause my 95 ford aerostar not to start but the buzzer work so I don't think it's battery

Buzzers don't need much juice to buzz. Charge the battery first and try again. Could be neutral/park interlock switch bad, bad starter....

My1997fordareostar van will make a clicking noise but i still have all power in battery what is the problem

A click every time you activate the starter motor generally tells us that the solenoid is working fine, but that the starter motor is faulty and requires repair/replacement.

To just double check:

Turn on the headlights when cranking.
If the lights dim significantly, then the battery doesn't have enough charge to power the starter, and the battery could require replacement.
If the lights don't dim by much, then the issue is most likely the starter motor.

Starter problems for 88 ford aerostar van 7 passenger. how do i know its the starter or bad connection?

Test your battery and starter by doing a voltage drop test. Put one test lead of your meter on the neg side of your battery, one on the positive. Check voltage. Make sure that you are actually connecting to the battery itself and not the terminal ends. Should read 12.8-13.2. Keeping the neg in the same location move the pos to the terminal end, engage starter, meter should read above 10 volts. Continue testing down the pos wire to the starter, checking voltage, until you find less than 10 volts. If the voltage is good at starter, have someone turn key to the start position, tap starter with a hammer. if starter engages , replace starter.

I have a 94 ford aerostar the starter hung up and the the motor just shut off. now we have put on a new stater and the van will not do nothing????

Probably melted a fusible link for the ignition circuit or fried a relay. Check all your fuses, especially the high amp ones. Do you have power to the starter when the key is in the "start" position? If not, check the fuses and cables. You sure the battery is not dead? Do the lights come one?

Mini van wont start

Sounds like starter selanoid, but first make sure battery connections are clean and tight, if sure they are then turn on headlights and try to start if still clicks and lights dim its starter.

Check the starter solenoid next to the battery. Sometimes it will not energize and just click.
