SOURCE: when van is left over

Hi

something is draining the battery, I would check the earth wire from the battery "black one" ensure this has a good contact with the van body. Is this a UK version of the transit? if so the battery is under the drivers seat. Fords have lots of issues with poor earth wores.

There has to be a loose connection on the battery if it can be jump started by another car try adding grease to the positive and negative connections on the battery then reapply the connectors to connect the car to the battery

Van won't start. I just bought this van (1997 caravan) used and it stared with no problem. The last 2 days it has refused to start. When I try to start it will struggle and almost turn over then it...


When the van refuses to start, have you tried to jump start it? If not, I would suggest you do, because it would allow you to rule out the battery and alternator (or at least be relatively confident that they are good) if the van DOES NOT start when you try to jump start it, then it would be either the starter/solenoid or in the engine.

I think it is i will probably have to pull the timing belt, it sounds like it probably skipped due to the serpentine belt cords wrapped around something under the timing belt cover, any other suggestions on alternate causes before I start pulling the brand new timing belt?12

I have a transit van but it doesn't start in the morning/alternat


Do an aquiesent discharge test, using a multi meter set to 10amps disconnect the neg terminal of the battery and put the meter in line, (poss lead to neg of battery and neg lead to neg lead to battery or earth point). there should be very little drain, just the memory for the radio etc just a few milliamps any more like 1 amp or more and you have something like a boot light stuck on window lifter motor stuck on raise etc,, it could also be a duff plate in the battery, get a deep discharge test done at a quick fit place, this will test the battery's capacity to hold a charge under load.
