Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Started as normal out of garage.
Back to it after 5 mins and interior lamps dim and wont crank. Battery is fully charged and Ive checked their connectors. Clicking from relay under bonnet. With Battery charger on battery the interior lamps are as normal but dim when trying to crank, now the remote has also stopped working.
Lights dimming a good clue, that means that there is power going to the solonoid but starter moter wont turn. Check all battery connections and starter connections Make sure battery has enough power to turn starter or try jumper cablea.
Sometimes the starter gets jambed up due to poor lube on the bendix. try hitting the housing with a hammer. You can take the starter out and bench rebuild or just replace it its not a hard job,
