Question about 2004 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

2006 Ford Explorer trouble starting.

When you turn the key it sounds like it is trying to turn over, just won't catch. Replaced battery, started right up. 3 hours later same problem, no start. Removed starter, cleaned all connections and solenoid. Fiddled with all conncections, started and worked for 3 days. Today, same problem, tries to turn over, sometiems it will start, mostly it won't. Replaced starter, didn't work. Seems to start randomly. Next step??

    1996 Ford Explorer - Electrical issues - battery light flashing - fuel light flashing - door locks automatically moving - and now the car won't turn over. It clicks - its not the battery or the starter. I can jump start the car - why I have no idea.

04 explorer 4.0l sputters and tries to start but won't


have you disconnected the battery for more than 5 mins before the trouble started, if so you have to reset the idle value by disconnecting the negative battery cable, put a shop towel between the battery post and cable, run a jumper wire from the negative battery cable to the positive cable ,which is still connected, leave it on there for 5 mins, remove jumper wire, reconnect negative cable to battery, when you start it, turn the key to the on position, wait for some of the lights by the speedometer start to go off, then start it

2006 Expedition ran great, parked over night, would not start, battery checked Okay


See if you can jump start the car from another battery which is sound. If you can then the battery you have is rubbish and must be replaced.

2003 ford explorer shut-off while driving and it won't turn over, no sound when key is turn.


If the headlights work, I would check for voltage at the key switch and the major fuses.
If nothing works, I would start at the battery and work toward the fuse boxes. Could be a bad ground connection too.

Replaced battery on my 2006 Ford Escape. Still won't start but everything else works


Figure by everything else you mean the radio,lights,etc? Is the engine turning over? What happens when the key is fully engaged? If the engine does not turn over the first place to look would be your fuses. Ensure that none look to be burnt or blown.If so replace and try again.If fuses look good Next step would be to ensure starter connection is good and starter is turning over.If the starter is not turning over then I would focus on it.Hope this helps.

just check the alternator is charging well and no battery light on dashboard it indicate the bad alternator
monitor your battery if it got old and cannot hold the charge any more
