My 2002 ford escort wont start all it does is make a clicking sound it ran fine the day before it stopped running but that was two weeks ago im not car smart and won't start please help


Is your car somewhere where you can sit in the car and see the headlight beams? Put the headlights on and turn the key. If the headlights go dim like a glow worm, your battery is flat.

That can be caused by a few things.
Something electrical left on in the car. Charge it up, or get a jump.
Faulty battery. New one.
Worn out battery, they last 5 years. New one.

You say it worked 2 weeks ago? That makes me believe that your battery is flat and worn out. For a few quid, you can get a battery charger at Halfords, and if you are going to be leaving the vehicle for extended periods, you might like to invest in a battery maintainer. These connect to the battery and provide a small tickle charge to keep the battery topped up. They use little power.

If the headlights stay bright, then the solenoid or starter is at fault. You will need one or the other replaced.

3 weeks ago my car would not start, replaced battery and it has been fine till tonight and it would not start.


3 days on a new battery, yes it is significant. Four things can do this in a short time. alternator, starter, radio, and interior lights/ light switch. Alternator can be checked on the car, A sign for the starter is that it may drag or drag sometimes. Radio is lights staying on after the door is opened,Even the clock. Light switch is interior lights don't work or the dimmer switch doesn't work. These are just suggestions that I have run across. They still need to be checked. It can get costly.

Hi,
Looks like an ECU problem,
You should go to your nearest dealer and check/scan and analyze your computer/ecu, some of the sensors might not be working already and need to be replace.
In the issue of starter, if it clicks and the motor of the starter whines up, it means it is working fine, the problem would be the bendix drive/gear can't reach the flywheel to start the engine.
My suggestion would be to bring that car to your dealer to check the ecu/computer and if the starter assembly is for your car model( sounds like its not for your car).

Hope that solves part of your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!

The positive battery cable is prone to corrosion at the battery end. Many times, the connector will completely decay loose at the cable end. Replace the cable if that is the case--don't use a clamp-on replacement terminal as they are prone to failure. Make sure the negative cable is in good condition as well. Check the connector interior for a bright lead surface. Check the tightness of both cables at their far end terminals. Hope this helps!

check to make sure yu have 12v at the battery, once you do turn the ignition to start, if nothing, check the fuse and relays that control ignition, if all is good then the click sound is coming from the starter, have the solenoid replace.

Interior lights on


Try disconnecting the negative battery cable for a minute or two. Then re-connect cable and start the car. Good luck.

2007 FORD SPORTS TRAC BATTERY KEEPS DYING


180 milli-amps is way to much draw,ford's limit is 50 milli-amps but typically we usually only see around 20-30. Now when you say fuse 2 is that in the under-hood fuse panel or the interior fuse panel? And if this vehicle is a 2007 it may still be under factory warranty which was 36 months or 36000 miles providing that the add on automatic starter is not causing your draw.Which in that case the people who installed it should be responsible for that.
