Question about 1999 Ford Contour

1 Answer

1999 Ford Contour 2.5 6 cylinder. Stalled. Now it wont turn over

Turn the key, all dash lights turn on, battery is fully charged. Jumped the starter directly from the battery to the back side of the starter. Turned over great. I know you are supposed to hold in the clutch for it to turn over, and have done that. When I turn the key to on you can here a relay close. Any help would be appreciated. I need my car back

1999 ford explorer wont start. battery is new.wont start when jumped. it tries to turn over but barely. then only hear a click. when you turn the key the dash lights and radio lights flicker on an


Sounds like starter motor given your slow to no turnover, I assume your new battery has full charge, if not, check with meter, it may be a defective battery, or another issue with connections, did you clean cable connections when you put in new battery? I assume your engine was running properly before battery change and is not partially seized due to overheating or low oil.

Good luck,

Jumped my 1999 ford escort, let it run 15 minutes, backed up 4 ft. and stalled out, then when I turn key nothing at all , no click, evrything is dead?


Clean the Battery, Charge your Battery and if it dies, then it is your ALTERNATOR if the Connections are CLEAN

I have a 1999 Ford F250 Super Duty 5.4 litre gas engine. When I turn the key to start it all I get is 1 click it sounds like from the dash area. Do I have a bad solenoid?


Do all the lights...headlights, etc.....turn on and are bright like it has a fully charged battery? If so, try tapping on the starter with a small hammer or whatever. If the starter will now turn the engine over, it is time for a starter motor replacement. 11 year old starter might have given up by now.

The battery will not charge and the dash instrument cluster will not work. we have checked all the fuses and none of them are blown. its a 2005 ford f550


It sounds like you have a fuseable link that has melted... Check down by the starter... There may be another connector and main power terminal in the left side of the engine compartment but remember when you look inside the engine compartment it will be on your right....

98 Contour, starter ticks like dead battery and wipers cycle a couple of times when I turn the key to start. Wiper switch is in the off position, battery is fully charged. I would think possible starter...


If you turn the key and you hear a click and the motor is not moving your starter is probably bad. Everything can work on your car and the starter can be bad all by itself.
Check and see if your wiper is inthe correct position,sometimes we accidently move it without knowing.

Ford contour wont start battery charged lights working


If headlight do not come on, leave them on and start check ground and power.
If headlights do come on then locate the starter and fine something to tape on it, not too hard,
but before u can do this have someone set inside the car with the key turn in the start position...

1999 ford expedition wont turn over


this sounds easy
now i under stand that your windows and lights are working but let me tell you somethig speciel

if you have a motor in an remote control car it is not running then you go and check it in a torch and it works this is why

a starter motor on a car uses a lot of power and is very high draw (takes alot from the battery)
a light or a power window motor uses less so it can provide the power needed where the starter motor needs more and it can not provide

hope you get what i mean

if i put a motor out of a corsa (1.4, 4 cylinder verry small motor) and put is in a bus it wont move it cause it is too hard
then if i put it in a go cart it will fly
tyr a new battery or see if you can borrow a friends to test it if it starts with a fully charges battery then all you need is a battery if not let me know more and i will do some home work for you
