2007 FORD SPORTS TRAC BATTERY KEEPS DYING

A few months ago I had an automatic starter installed in my 2007 Ford Sports Trac. About 2 weeks later my car wouldnt start...the battery was dead...I charged the battery and my car was fine...a few weeks later the same problem...About a month ago, I bought a new battery figuring it was that..But this week, the car wouldnt start. I took my car back to the place where I had my starter installed and they said that 180 miliamps were being amitted from my FUSE 2. They told me to take it out until I could take it to the dealer. I took it out, but now my lights do not work (head lights and interior lights), my electric locks wont work, the automatic starter doesnt work. I was told that FUSE 2 was for cruise control and my tire pressure, those both dont work with the fuse out as well (but that is normal). What is wrong with my car? Why does it seem like all the fuses are screwed up?

180 milli-amps is way to much draw,ford's limit is 50 milli-amps but typically we usually only see around 20-30. Now when you say fuse 2 is that in the under-hood fuse panel or the interior fuse panel? And if this vehicle is a 2007 it may still be under factory warranty which was 36 months or 36000 miles providing that the add on automatic starter is not causing your draw.Which in that case the people who installed it should be responsible for that.

2007 ford explorer sport trac will not crank but it has power to starter and everything else works


Solenoid, which is just a big switch might be bad, motor might be bad. If you have good access should be easy to troubleshoot. Doesn't sound serious.

2007 ford sport trac will not crank but has power to starter


The solenoid is just a big switch. If it is not working the starter will not engage which means you might have a bad solenoid or a bad motor.

Won't start


Check the battery cables make sure they are clean and tight. Make sure the battery has at least 12V, new batteries sit on the shelf for months sometimes before they are purchased. If this yields no results, remove the starter and have it checked. If it checks bad, replace the starter.

How do I replace starter on 2001 Ford Explorer sport trac


Disconnect negative battery cable, remove starter bolts, pull starter out and down to remove connections. Pay attention to how they are situated. Attach connections to new starter exactly the same way, install, and re-connect your battery cable, and you should be off!
