Got a mk2 ford mondeo estate 2.0 16v zetec that wont start there is battery power but the engine wont turn over. maybe the fuel pump isnt working properly


If the car won't turn over your immediate problem is with the starter or the battery. subsequently if you have a bad battery you could also have a bad alternator not charging the battery. You problem isn't with the fuel pump as it does not assist the engine in cranking.

MY FORD ESCORT 1.6 FINESSE 1997 IMOBILISER FAULT


disconnect the battery for 1 minute and try again - ---quick fix possible with that---
if that makes no difference then I would like to know exactly what model of alarm and immobiliser the car has - what is the maker + model no/serialno of the keyfob for the alarm, I can get the info I need off that.
also you can check the fuse in the alarm if you know where the alarm is situated, it will have a fuse either on an inline fulseholder on as a spade fuse stuck into its casing somewhere - replace the fuse if blown and try again to start the car ------------ tell me the model no of your alarm and immobiliser if no joy after battery/fuses and I can read up on them and see if I can fix your problem...
