Question about 2006 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

There is no power to start my 2006 mustang

I believe one of the doors was left open for a while draining the battery. I have charged the battery, and still no power to turn on the interior lights when I open the door. It seems like there is absolutely no electrical power at all. What is the problem?

Easy to fix! you have to put it in drive and have a friend help you push in reverse for about 1/2 mile and it will recharge the hidden capacitors in the onboard computer. If they completely discharge like yours has just recharging the battery alone won't work.
Glad to help!

First, the battery replacement indicates you have a short. Either something draining the battery, or a bad alternator. This explains the light problem too. Get the alternator and battery tested at a auto-parts store. All the rest will fall in place.

1996 Mustang no power to interior

I had a problem with a loss of power in my Mustang before and believe it or not, it turned out to be my starter. My starter was steadily draining all my power. I was charging the battery while i was at work and i had just enough battery to get home. Then i would charge it over night and same thing next day. Replace your starter and your problems may dissappear:) best of luck!

My 750 bmw 06 has no power had to use key to maually open door and trunk to car. It has no power drove car earlier in the day. went back out all power gone, what could be the problem

hi well this looks like the battery is flat, either something has drained it, ie, partly open door (interior light) , boot light not going out, something left on lights? anything like that can cause this to happen, the other thing it might be is that your alternator is not charging the battery, you could get a jump start and get the alternator tested with a volt meter, if it reads less than 13volts on idle it is not charging , if it reads 13 volts on 1000 rpm, its not charging either. it should be 14 to 14.5volts anything over that to means the alternator is u/s as over charging the battery could cause just as much problems as not charging it correctly...hope this helps

My 96 lincoln started having problems with the interior lights staying on all the time, then the drivers side window did not work, then the power steering was operating intermittenly and then stopped...

it is a bad idea to disconnect the battery of a running car. If the alternator is working it can destroy virtually any electric component that is on. Alot of shops and some auto parts stores offer free charging/starting system tests.(they sell more baterries and alternators)

Left door open car wont start no power all that works are the brake lights.

Check your battery voltage a full charge is 12.6 vdc or higher, if it's not charge with a trickle charger.

if a battery is left to sit in your car there is always a constant small power drain and a short drive very seldom will not maintain a proper charge so it does need to be run more often
