Question about Ford Explorer

When I try to start my 1992 Ford Explorer nothing happens. But when its connected to another battery it clicks a few times but nothing else. I was hoping maybe you could help point me in the right direction to find the problem. Thank you.

    I just bought a new battery, thinking that was the problem. It still won't start; just a little click, then nothing. :(

The most common thing that causes this is the postive battery cable getting acid in side the cable, replace the cable and test the battery.

Why doesn't my 2007 Ford Mustang start


it sounds like the dog gear on the motor is stuck, try putting it in gear and rocking the car back and forth a few times, take it out of gear and try the starter again

92 ford explorer wont start. just loud click. checked all connections and cleaned. took battery out and it checked out ok, starter was checked and it appeared ok but wondering if it was just not apply


I believe either your starter solenoid has failed or else the big battery cable connection to the solenoid needs cleaning / tightening, Matt. That loud click would be the solenoid engaging, but it's not passing battery power through to the starter motor.

Sometimes the car wont start. lights go dim. when i try to start it makes a loud clicking sound.


Check the cable connection on the battery. They need to be clean and tight. No corrosion. Ifthe connections are ok then it is probably time for a new battery. The dimming light indicates indicate the battery have a weak charge.

The 98 explorer starts fine, most of the time.


Sound like you have a starter that starting to go out, the easy way to check it is when it only clicks have some one try to start it and you tap on the starter if it starts replace it, starter going bad.

99 Explorer 4.0 Won't start... the last few days that it did run, I would have to turn it over a few times and usually the 3rd time it would start. Just replaced the battery, but guage still reads low....


Check the connections to the starter, 90 percent of the time when testing batteries and starters here in WI the issue it the wires at the starter. Don't just look at them, either. Pull the big one off and clean it really well, and the small one if it looks bad. Also check the ground wire where it bolts to the motor from the battery, if the latter does not fix it. You have a bad connection, the old battery was probably still good-but don't take that as saying to take the new one back, you are better safe than sorry, I would keep the new one anyway-and the old for a spare.

My ford explorer wont start my key goes to access but when i turn it to start nothing not even a clicking noise


ok, Make sure the battery connections are clean, remove and clean to make sure. Then, follow the battery + cable to a solenoid. check those connections. The small wire is the one from the key. That is what cranks the motor. Make sure the vehicle is in neutral and try again. If nothing, then jump the batt+ to the cable on the other side of the solenoid. The starter will crank. Then, jump the + to the little oost. The engine will crank and if your key is on it will start. Always have someone in the drivers seat when doing this..... Safety is a must when out of vehicle. Good Luck, Ned.
