Are you saying the engine will not start, or not crank ?
If it does not crank, yes the battery could be low or defective. Or it could be the starter or several other factors.
If it cranks but does not start, the battery is working.

SOURCE: My ford F150 won't shift

Usually the transmission needs to be rebuilt in that situation. It's a very common problem if that's the famous automatic overdrive transmsission. AOD I have had three trucks that have done that. It usually starts by shuttering when it shifts and than finally goes out. Sometimes the Lucas transmission treatment gives you a little more time, but it sounds too late for yours. From what I understand (mechanic told me) that when the overdrive goes out, it takes third gear with it. If you drive in hilly areas, that overdrive is shifting in and out all the time as you go up and down hills and wears it out. My Dad had that hapen on his F150 and he replaced his transmission with a junk yard transmission that turned out to have the same problem. I had that transmission replaced with a Jasper rebuilt and it worked great. I think it was $1300 for the rebuilt trans with the old one core trade in. I think when 3rd gear goes out, you can only go about 45mph without over reving the engine. I saw that same problem with a Ford Crown vic with that same transmission and 302 engine that my neighbor had.
Did your third gear just go out all of a sudden or were you getting like a shuttering or kind of a grinding sound when it shifted?

Sounds like your not getting any fuel..Listen for the fuel pump,by removing gas cap and put your ear up to it..cycle the key without starting it and listen for the pump..sometimes you can beat on the bottom of the tank and it will jarr the pump and it will start running again..Not a fix but a conformation

Car won't start, even automatic locks don't work


sounds like you need to replace your battery. If you havent tried to either charge the battery or have someone jump start your car and then let it run for awhile to charge up your battery. If you have done all those and things are still not working its time to replace. If your battery is about 4-5 years old or older then you need to replace battery. Hope this helps...Rick

I would suggest recharging the battery, or just get a new one. It's 7 years old and probably worn out.

I just replaced battery and alternator on my 1999 ford f150, still wont turn over, need advise


I'm assuming you mean it won't crank.I believe Fords still have an external stater relay,try shorting acroos the two large terminals with a screwdriver.If it cranks by doing this,verify you get 12 volts on the smaller wire when you turn the key to the start position.If you do,then its the relay.
