Question about 1995 Ford Escort

Car not turning over

When I try to start my car I can hear it clicking but not turning over. I have recently installed a stereo and when I disconnected it, my car started twice but then stopped. Now I can't get it to turn over or anything. I have been told it could be anything from my starter to my clutch. Please help.

    I agree, most likely dead cell in your battery.

1st thing to check is the battery. The clicking sound you hear is a common sign of a dead battery. Have u tried to jump start the car, or charge the battery? Check this 1st, let me know what u find, then we can take it from there.

Why wont my radio woek after being jump started


I'm assuming that your vehicle was jump started due to it's battery being depleted. In such a case it is normal for any stereos with start codes to require a four digit PIN to be punched in before operation can commence. In the case that your stereo doesn't require a PIN and doesn't ask for one, then it is possible that your stereo's fuse may be blown or in fact that your stereo is faulty and may be the reason for your power drain.
It will help if you can provide more specifics such as whether or not your stereo shows any illumination lights or screen prompts etc. Perhaps it's on the radio setting, but all you're hearing is static. Please provide more info if possible.

98 accura slx just clicks wont turn over


You will need to replace the starter, the internal contacts get burned and this is the click you hear.

Car won't start. New battery installed recently. Only clicks when trying to start.


one single click any time you turn the key usually indicates a bad solenoid on the starter. A new starter will typical get you going.

A series of rapid clicks when you try to start usually indicates a weak battery. There could also be a bad connection at the terminals on the battery or even a poor connection at the starter.

If you get a single click and everything goes dead for a couple of seconds than you definitely have a bad connection at the battery.

Let me know what you find or if you have any questions.

My 1995 lexus has recently not started after


do you hear the starter click or try to turn the engine. Most likely it is your starter. The contactors wear over the time/the number of starts over the years. You can get a rebuilt starter or buy a new one. If you are up to the challenge you can but repair kits to rebuilt it. It a 300-400 dollar job at the dealer.

NO CRANK. NO STEREO. NO CLOCK.


I think that your battery is dead. Try jump starting the car. Be careful that you hook the jumper cables correctly, red to positive[the + on the battery] black to negative[the- on the battery].

The turn signals do not work.


under the bonnet there is a set of relays to check them out have someone turn the indicator lights on if they are working you should hear a clunk un der the bonnet otherwise have a look under the dash you will find a round metal container that either has wires going to it or pushes into a socket try replacing that hope this helps regards Jim
