Question about Cars & Trucks
I have fixed he starter motor and replaced the battery I still unable to start the engine when put the keys in
We don't have Cortinas in the USA, but you should have a switch between the key switch and the starter where you have to have the clutch pushed in or the trans in park. That switch could be faulty.

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.

if the starter is revving very slowly it is the battery, charge battery. if not, It can be three things happing. 1 no spark 2 no fuel 3 no crank signal or the car computer is bad- you will need to unplug one of the spark wires and remove the spark plug and put the spark plug in the spark plug wire boot, and touch the spark plug on any metal on the car and have some start the car. donot touch the spark plug itself and see if there is a spark. if spark is bright, then it is not spark plug and wires but if no or spark is not bright, check the spark plug wires by applying a little bit of water on the spark plug wire and take a 12v test light, connect the clap to ground and and have some one to crank the vehicle, touch allover the spark plug wires with the tip of the test light, if you see spark, replace the wires and change the plugs.. they are not good. if spark is present, check for fuel by removing any one of the spark plugs and see if it is wet. if wet fuel pump is ok but if not go look for the fuel pump fuse and relay. is fuse blown, replace, check the relay resistor with a volt meter. it should be around 40 to 80 ohm. if everything is good from this point check the fuel pump itself by disconnecting the connector to the pump and apply 12v and ground using jumper wires or some wires to the fuel pump if you donot hear the pump,replace pump. if you, the crank signal or computer may be the problem

will it start with a boost? either the starter motor or the battery. take the battery to auto zone and they will test it for you.

Few days ago my Son bought from a Fiat garage a second-hand Doblo (2002, diesel). The maintenance work was done at the garage before delivery the car. From the beginning an intermittent problem appeared: impossible to restart the car after having lef it unstarted from a moment (short or long does not change anything), after several retries can be started again. The mechanic guy of the garage tested the car with the electronic tooling but found nothing abnormal. Do you have any idea about what could be the cause ?
Looking at the forum I've seen mentions about the RPM sensor (defective or misaligned ?).
Thank you for your help,
