SOURCE: 95 F150 wont crank

the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

SOURCE: 1988 Ford E350 with 2 batteries won't start, just clicks

It has to have 2 batteries because it is a diesel engine. Diesels use compression to fire the combustion mixture instead of a spark plug as a gasoline engine does. It has glow plugs that heat the mixture up before starting to help promote this and it has probably twice the compression ratio,therefore it takes alot of amps to start it and that is why you have 2 batteries. No it still only has one solenoid for the starter but it has to use a gear reduction starter instead of a conventional one.

try over riding the starter relay on the fender ,it has one there right?. dont go to a mechanic yet. the engine aint seized. if it doesnt have this relay then i would get the alternator tested. if you want to test it yourself it can be costly for the right equip. autozone usually tests for free. i dont know were you live so if theres not an autozone. let me know if you cant get it tested.

SOURCE: 05 ford escape wont start. jump started it and it

okay try this....talk to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.

SOURCE: (ENGINE won't TURNOVER) Just a "click" then nothing...

The reason car batteries do that is because the battery only runs your accessories and starts the car. The alternator runs the vehicle and charges the battery once it is started. If the battery is failing the charge provided by the alternator runs your accessories and the leftovercharge is displaced into the dead battery.

Sounds like the battery is dead. If the lights work and the horn blows at least it isn't your alternator!

Does not start. Acts like battery is dead but battery is strong. As the engine slowly turns over the tach will bounce all over. When the engine acts like the battery is dead and will not turn over the tach...


IT could be either. Remove the Starter and take it to Auto Zone or another parts store that offers free testing and have it tested. Most likely the oil leak in that area is fouling things for you. It should be sealed against that type of problem but may need to be rebuilt or replaced.

You said you tightened the battery cables, did you check the other end of the negative where it bolts to the engine. When you tightened the cables you also used a battery brush and cleaned the posts and ends?

Truck sat for 6 weeks battery went dead. Charged


If checking battery cables and wiring to the starter and ground points doesn't help. Have the battery checked for a bad cell. Preferably before you charge it.

Sounds like starter selanoid, but first make sure battery connections are clean and tight, if sure they are then turn on headlights and try to start if still clicks and lights dim its starter.
