Possible PATS fault see if the theft light is blinking fast, if you have a second key try it. Key must be a transponder type key usually a large black plastic end. Access key will not start this car.

SOURCE: 2007 mercury milan V6 Car wont start. Jumped it

Remove the lugs at the battery. Clean the posts and the lugs - then reconnect. Your battery won't charge (and the jumpers won't work) largely because of a film on the + post and lug. If you live in a hot summer area, (Arizona) the problem is especially troublesome.

SOURCE: My battery went dead after only 16,000 miles- I

no there is not a recall on your milan, only on the monterey for after market fuel filters. The fact of the matter is they just don't build them like they used to. So Its probably your alternator thats the number one probable cause.. hope this helps and god bless.

Key won't turn, won't shift from Park


My 2003 Saturn l200 2.2 ecotec did this when the battery was dead. Put some juice on the battery, then the car came out of park, and I was able to remove the key. To the car, there's a vast difference between a sluggish battery and a dead battery. It may have enough amps to crank it, but it wont start w/out full output from the battery.

I don't have a diagram for a 2008. On 2005 models the blower motor relay gets power from a 30amp fuse.
When the blower switch is in the high position the resistor is bypassed and power flows directly to the motor. The motor is grounded to the car.
The fan relay also gets power from a 7.5amp fuse and is controlled by the HVAC control on the dash.
Do you have power into and out of the relay?

Not sure I am following your question.
If the engine cranks, the battery starter and alternator are working.
If you have to crank the engine for an extended period of time, it is not getting spark or fuel or both.
If it happens mainly during cold weather, and the first start of the day, I would check fuel pressure before and after you crank it.

My 2007 Milan won't start in cold weather.


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

I have a problem with a 2008 Dodge Charger, my battery went bad and I had to jump it off to take it and get a new battery put in but now my new battery won't start my car not even when the new battery...


When you jump started the vehicle, it started as normal and you drove to a shop to have a new battery installed.?? Correct??

1. Who removed the old battery and installed the new one?

2. Did the car start normally immediately after the new battery was fitted? How frequently were you able to drive the car on the new battery before the problem you described appeared?

3. Has anything been done to the vehicle since the new battery was fitted.?

My 2008 silverado won't start battery is charged


No, it isn't an ignition issue.

Check power to the starter motor solenoid.
If this is getting power when cranking, then the issue is with the starter motor solenoid or starter motor. Replace.

Sounds like 1 of the following:
  • Dirty or corroded battery connection
  • Loose battery cable
Either of these conditions will both prevent the battery from properly recharging and prevent sufficient power from the battery to start the car. If the car won't start only when the engine is warm, you may have a bad starter that works when it's cold but not when it's hot.

My truck won't start. It won't turn over... only clicking noise.. even with a jump. the headlights work but very dimly.. orange lights next to headlights flash on and off dimly consistently as well...


When a battery is very low, even a jump won't work because the battery takes too much out of the jump. Take the battery out and have it charged up.
If it won't take a charge, get a new one.
But also make sure the battery terminals and cable ends are shiny and greased.

If you really want to be sure, put a voltmeter on it.
A good battery should be 12.5.
When you crank it should go down to about 10.
If it goes below 9, either the battery is too low, or the starter is draining too much.
If it never goes below 11, it is not draining enough, and the solenoid is probably bad.
If when you stop cranking, it comes back up to over 11, then the battery is good, so the starter is probably bad.
