98 ford windstar has clicking noise under dash and won't start

I have a 98 Ford Windstar and as of last night it wouldn't start. I hear a loud clicking noise coming from what seems to be the fuse box under the dash when I try and turn the key to start it.

    I am not getting any response when I turn on the ignition switch. It acts as if I don't have a battery, but it is new. I thought it might be the solenoid, so I changed it. No luck. Also checked all fused in fuse box under dash

The clicking noise is most likly the starter solinoid cycling in and out. This is due to low battery voltage. charge the battery, then have the battery and charging system tested. Some auto supply stores will do this for free for you in the hopes of selling parts

good luck

98 ford windstar/ power steering pump changed twice as of this week/ makes a loud whinning noise /can'tn keep fulid it, lines have been changed, no visiablem leaks,


Either you have air in the system cuasing the pump to " cavitate" or not enough fluid or the wrong fluid.
Are these pumps you put in new, used or re-built ?
Fluid HAS to be going somewhere.
