Question about 1995 Ford Thunderbird

1 Answer

Wont start I drove the car home and when I tried to start the car the next morning, it doesn't do anything. the voltage meter shows 0, the a/c system is off but blows air at full speed. it acts like the battery is dead, except for the a/c blowing strong. but the battery isnt dead.

No, you should be asking what is my battery voltage. As taken from a voltmeter, a multi-meter, or a digital volt-ohm meter. You really need to know the battery's state of charge before proceeding to question the starter or solenoid. You could have a loose connection somewhere that is not allowing the alternator to re-charge the battery when the engine is running. That sounds to me more likely what the problem is.
When properly charged, your 3 year old battery should show a minimum of 12.5 volts, some people say it must be 12.6 volts, but that is how defined the process is. And that is why you should invest in a cheap voltmeter, a DVOM is best for automotive work, considering all the small current electronics on modern cars. Just see what your battery voltage is-that is the first step in diagnosing. Did you even think of seeing how bright the headlights were? Or watching them when trying to start the engine? If they get real dim or go out altogether, your battery is too flat!
You can easily check your charging system once the engine is running. Put the voltmeter back on the battery when engine is running, and the voltage should now be over 13 volts, 13.5 volts is very good. Most systems run in the 13.5 to 14.5 volts range. But anything over 13 volts means the alternator is doing it's job.

check the connection on your battery terminal ends. if they are loose or corroded that could explain the intermittent no spark. also could be a short somewhere but id check the terminals first. I had that problem once and the car did all sorts of weird things. airbag light, check engine light, randomly wouldnt start until i would mess with the battery.
