Your vehicle may be involved in recall 07S57 for camshaft postion sensor replacement. It will cause these symptoms you described.
Go this website http://www.genuineservice.com/genuineservice/en/default?page=Home

Look on the left side task bar, pick recalls and insert your complete VIN number to see if your vehicle is involved.

SOURCE: my 96 ford explorer wont start

Check that the small wire going onto the starter solenoid has a good contact. Next time it doesn't start, test this wire for power while the key is on Start. If it has power when you test it then, I'd suspect dodgy starter solenoid.

I have a 1996 BMW 750 IL The battery is at full charge but when I turn the key to start there is nothing – lights are on seatbelt indicator on but no power to the starter can you help me with this


Turn on your headlights and try to start the car. If the headlights go from bright to dim or off , then the battery or it's connections are bad, or loose or corroded.
If the headlights stay bright, then the problem is likely the starter or it's connections.
Hope this helps.

Sounds more like a dead battery. The one click you hear is the starter solenoid.
Turn on your headlights and try to start if your headlights go real dim your battery is dead.
If they stay bright then it could be your starter

Try turning the headlight control knob clockwise so that the arrow is pointing up. You may only have it in daytime lights mode and not actually in headlight mode.

Car will start lights, radio, etc, but engine


Try this:

Turn ON headlights and try to crank...

1. Headlights turn off completely means that the battery terminals need cleaning. Remove cables and clean clamps and posts.
2. Headlights have a noticable dimming means that the starter needs to be replaced.
3. No change in brightness. The headlights stay on, meand the starter solenoid needs replacing.
