Question about 2006 Mercury Milan

1 Answer

My 2007 Milan won't start in cold weather.

I have had my battery checked and am told it is good, that I just don't drive my car enough to charge the battery, but when it is cold, I have to jump the battery to get it started.

Sounds like nonsense to me

Everyone drives a vehicle a couple days a week

If the battery is over 5 years old it may be bad

When you say you had it checked- we need technical
details of how it was tested & it's age

Was the alternator tested & again how?

If you haven't had anything tested in over a year,
you can expect things to not work as they should

Obviously your issues are somewhat weather or temp
related,so a fresh start & a different shop that knows why
your there & what you expect resolved is what is needed

Check all wires running to battery. Check the battery ground(black) cable for sure. Make sure it is getting a good ground. If necessary unbolt the ground and clean up with a wire brush or wheel.

I'm having trouble starting my 2007 1.9 cdti in cold weather. Replaced the relay, glow plugs are good. Could it be the temperature sensor?

it is more likely that the cranking speed is too slow for the compression pressure to get hot enough to ignite the fuel
2 possible fixes
the battery has to be in top condition for cold weather starting
the injectors may be squirting and not atomizing so have them professionally checked at a specialist diesel shop

Car won't crank or start in cold weather 2007 Pacifica

Clean your battery post use a battery maintenance kit has a green
and red filter ring also have your battery tested in cold conditions if a battery is weak that's when it's more noticeable.thats why you see CCA on battery's they are tested cold to determine cold cranking amps.

Won't start, battery good, starter good, swapped relays and still won't start

Any issues with the ignition switch itself? They are mostly made of plastic pieces. With the exception of the actual cylinder. Also depending on how long you had the battery issue,it may have damaged the alternator. They tend to go hand in hand,unless caught early enough. The alternator gets overworked due to the weak battery.

New battery but car wont start in cold weather. The engine just doesn't turn over.

You might check your cables for corrosion inside of the insulation. This can cause a higher than normal amp draw, which will be worst in the cold.

My 2000 BMW 328i has a horrible squeaky noise when it is cold and stops after about 15 minutes what is the problem and how do I fix it?

I assume that the squeaky noise stops after 15 minutes, not the engine. If that is the case, you may have a very worn belt. This won't cost you a ton of money. You have a serpentine belt on your car, so that is a likely culprit. You may also have a bad battery, which in cold weather would perhaps have just enough to start the car but would also demand the alternator (and by extension, the belt) to provide enough amps to recharge the battery after a severe draw,
Before the winter, I recommend a new serpentine belt and a new battery, after a test of your alternator output and the battery at a good shop. You should not expect to spend more than $200 max, if everything is wrong.

Won't start in cold weather

Are you saying the starter doesn't spin the engine over? The click it comes from the engine? If so then you have a defective starter solenoid, the design of the starter used in this truck is Japanese, the problem comes from the heavy electrical contact in the starter solenoid get burned away, when it is cold the large metal contacts shrink and make no connection, heat it up and the contacts expand just enough to make the connection and supply battery power to the starter motor itself. Replace the starter and the problem will go away if the answer was yes to my 1st two questions. If you want to replace just the solenoid parts then you can get them most likely from HERE

1996 cad seville no elec pwr try to start nothing. no lights etc.

The first thing I'd check is the battery. Sometimes a battery may enough volts to run some of the electronics, but not enough cold cranking amps to start the car. When this happens, a simple voltage check won't help. I have a friend whose battery on his F150 had 12.0 volts but only 450 CCA, so it had issues. After checking the battery at the terminals, check for loose connection at the wires. Then, I'd go to the fuse panels and relays. Once all of that checks out fine, then I'd investigate the ignition switch and ignition relays.
Of course, this is all on the assumption that you don't have an aftermarket alarm system. If you do, I'd start there. Many aftermarket alarms have a kill switch that disengages the battery or starter if the vehicle is being stolen. Good long as it works.
Good luck!

2005 sedona won't start all of a sudden. Doesn't make a sound except for a tiny whirring sound like the feul injectors. Replaced starter...still won't start. checked all fuses...they are good....

you could just have dead cell in the battery which isn't getting enough amps to the starter,, have the battery LOAD checked,, that will tell you if the battery is actually good, just because it registers 12 volts isn't necessarily an indication that the required amps are present.

When it is below frezzing my Isuzu makes a clicking sound instead of starkting but in warm weather it starts all the time ?

more then likely the battery is going bad. in cold weather it takes a good (cca) cold cranking amps, battery to turn engine over. but in warm weather the engine is not as cold and therefore needs less cranking amps. thats why you hear clicking when trying to start car in cold. it is the solinoid clicking and not enough power for starter to turn it over.
