Question about 2006 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

2006 ford mustang 4.0 v6 sometimes will not start

Occasionally, the car acts like the battery is dead. The battery tested fine. Also, if I wait for a few minutes the car will start just fine. I thought it might be a loose ground, but that is not the problem. I cleaned and tightened every ground I could find. Also, from time to time while driving down the road the odometer will stop illuminating. The check engine light is not on. When the car won't start, I jumpstart it.

    Does the starter make a loud click or clunk when it won't start?

You said you cleaned the grounds did you also clean the positive side of the battery ? The starter is ok because you said that when you jump it it starts up fine .. check your battery posts again .. thanks Jerry holler if you need more help

My 2001 ford mustang v6 engine will not start due to not being turned on or driven in over a month. How can this be fixed?


Is the engine turning over? Are the dash lights coming on when key is turn on? If engine is turning over and lights are coming on the battery is good. If not the battery is dead. So once engine is turning over and car not starting try pouring just a little fuel inside the fuel bowl and try starting the car. Or get some starting fuel.

Have a 2008 chevy impala 3.9L v6. The car intermittently will have issues starting. Car will turn over sometimes is acts like the battery is almost dead then you try again and it starts.


Have the battery load tested, it may have a cell that is failing. Autozone and Sams club and Oriley auto parts do this testing for free.

I got 2006 Mustang V6. Few days ago I start getting a dashboard warning signal that reads: "CHECK CHARGING SYSTEM" When it comes on it's just for 20-30 sec. at the time and when I push system...


You may have gotten a faulty battery or alternator. I would recommend that you take your car to either your local auto part store or mechanic and have them perform a load test on your charging system. Most places will do this for you at little or no cost and if you have a problem it is the best way to find it. I hope this helps you out, and if you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

you may have blown an internal fuse on the radio. sometimes radios have an inline fuse on the red wire, located behind the radio. You must remove it to discover this problem though.

2001 v6 ford mustang. when i try to start it it cranks like it wants to start but it wont, it just started doing that more consistent


Well, I have an 01 V6 Mustang as well. I am having the same problem. It is an intermittant problem with the PATS system. What i normally do is to disconnect the battery and let it sit. Sometimes it takes a few hours, sometimes overnight. I am actually on my way to have a remote start unit installed. The remote start unit will include a PATS bypass module. I will return to let you know how it works.....

Ford Explorer, 1998, V6 4L SOHC. Will not start. Acts like battery is dead. Jump starts successfully. Battery takes and holds charge (13.3V) only when disconnected. When battery leads are reconnected...


Most partstores will test battery altenator and starter for free. Either your battery is dead or your connections are not metal to metal contact, or you starter relay may be shot. You can put key in on position and either test with a voltmeter or use a screwdriver and jump terminals on solenoid to see if starter turns.
