What have you replaced recently? One man in UK replaced a relay unit in the igniton wiring with one that fit and worked perfectly for 11 minutes and 46 seconds exactly, then all power in the engine was lost. Turn the key to off, turn on, start engine, perfect for another 11 minutes and 46 seconds, ad infinitum.he drove 1100 miles including motorways with this fault, on, off, on, off....
At home he found that the relay that fitted perfectly was the type of relay for the rear window Heater on a French brand of car..the one which turns off after 11 minutes and 46 seconds.
it's a long shot but did you?........
Please get back to us with the solution as it may help someone in the future.......
Only Ford products have a Fuel Safety Reset Switch & they only open in an accident Have it towed to a shop & diagnosed Given the age & the fact you ran it out of fuel,I would say the fuel pump needs to be replaced
Hello, Check your Interlock switches under the dash. At the present time, you say the engine does not crank. The Interlock should be on the clutch pedal for a stick and the brake pedal for the Automatic. The clutch Interlock would kill the starter current.
The switches often get kicked by shoes when you enter or exit the vehicle. But, since everytime you go to start the car, unless it is in Neutral, you operate the clutch or brake pedal to start your car. If the Interlock switches are broken or loose, the movement can jiggle the switches so you get different results at random.
The other things I would look at are the battery level. Ford products are very sensitive to low Voltage and it activates the Antitheft, reducing juice to the starter. And then put a pressure meter on the test tap for the fuel pressure. Your Pressure Regulator could be making the thumping and you have changed components which can need adjustment.
It seems like you are floating around several problems; no crank and then cranking and no spark.
You may have a bad Ignition Relay too. The Ignition switch sends power to both the PCM and fuel pump Relays, but you should have an Ignition Relay too. If you look at the terminals under the Relays, the Relays have about 4 terminals each. The Relays are dependent on each other. 2 terminals of the PCM can connect to the Fuel pump or Ignition Relay and so on. So if one Relay fails to trigger another, the car won't start.
You may need to replace only 1 more Relay to be good or the Interlock switches. I would like to know what the final cause was found to be. I hope my suggestions are very helpful to you.
it wont start right away cause u ran it out of gas, u have to repressurize the full system, turn the key ON and OFF like 5-10 times NOT cranking it over like u gonna start it just in the ON position, if that does nothing then u need to tow might have blown a fuse or relay went bad or even PUMP
first,, had the engine stoped before you friend turned up, or did he stop it????
if you took the battery off has the car got a car alarm fitted to it if so, could it be the alarm immobiliser killing the feed to the starter??? also has the car ignishion kye got a chip in it to switch off the alarm? no chip no run like? and last have you put the battery on right and is it a good battery not a dud one
Remove air cleaner, pour about 1/4 cup gasoline into the throttle body/carburetor, put air cleaner back on, start car. Repeat until it runs. You may get a small backfire in the throttle body, so don't be looking at it while someone else starts it. Good idea just to stand back from engine when engine is cranked.
You will need about 2 gallons of gas to get the car started. Also have the front of the car lower than the rear. I have had the problem with mine. If I am low on gas, I get the car on a downhill slope, and it starts right up and I get straightaway to the gas station.
