    It wont turn over it's like the battery is dead

  • kelly3441 Mar 06, 2009

    Nothing comes on when I turn the key, There is power though because the door lights are on when the door is open. When it's boosted it runs good it's just getting it to start.

    Ok now it is making a clicking noise when I turn the key...Im female so I don't know to much about anything. The battery I know isnt even a year old yet. Would the sylinoid thingy or battery cables have anything to do with it!

    Sounds like the battery is shot. it may have enough juice to light a 3 watt bulb, but not enough to trigger the starter.

Battery may be shot like the other guy said try tripping the solenoid on the passenger side behind the battery see if it does anything then if not its the solenoid if it still clicks check the solenoid down on the starter also check the ground on the bellhousing of the transmission and does it crank then click click or just click

Makes sure there is no corrosion on the battery where the cables connect to it ( white ash looking stuff ). Also if you get it running take it to an auto parts store like auto-zone and have the charging system and battery tested, most stores do it for free. If the charging system and battery are ok it could be a faulty starter causing the battery to drain.

Please don't forget to rate.

Car runs fine but at times it will die and have to boost to start

Sounds like alternator/generator could be bad and also battery could be bad.

Starting problems

Sounds like your battery has gone south. If you can jump it to start and it continues to run then it is just running off the alternator. The battery can no longer store power. That is why you can't get it to start when you turn it off. It requires an alternate power source to crank the engine until the alternator kicks in to power the ignition. Have the battery load tested with a good carbon pyle load tester.

1994 ford explorer not staying on

Did you try the fuse panel under the hood. I have a 1994 Explorer with over 100,000 miles and it would do the same when I was driving it would sometimes just shut off. Check the EEC (Electronic Emission Control) Fuse (30 AMP) under the hood and see if it's blown, I replaced mine with a 40 AMP fuse and it worked.
