Pull your ignition and take it down to your local auto parts get a replacement and try it. (keep your receipt because if that is not the problem you can always return it). If its not the battery or the ignition then you may just have a loose wire waiting to be found somewhere.

SOURCE: Car won't start!

well six of ten is right,but frying scot ??17 volts ?? well frying scott as its obvious you know nothing about motor vehicles i suggest you refrain from answering any questions.......the only way to test a battery is with a drop tester where the reserve amperage is tested as without this all your silly gismos are a waste of time.yes a 12v battery should do this or that but in pratice its not always right.battery can read from 11v to 13v and be perfectly ok.Correct way to test a battery is use a heavy discharge tester ,secondly a heavy discharge induction amp meter is placed on the cable and engine cranked with main coil lead out or coil pack supply disconnected so that engine will not start and the amperage checked in case windings on starter motor are shorting through causing motor to draw too much current.So i would suggest you go to college and study for six years and try to pass a motor vehicle technicians course ,yes technicians course and not motor mechanics or national craftmans .But in all honesty studying anything to do with motor vehicles in this day and age is a waste of time in the uk as no protection is available unlike here in spain where you cant evan fit spot lights without somebody with my qualifications signing a piece of paper and charging for it trust me on this one,but UK ??? study mechanical engineering thats recognised ---car mechanics, garages dont want them,well not the likes of myself as i know more than the owner which means they dont want to be shown up as not knowing -or paying skilled wages.Unlike spain with paperwork where the legislation is different and i can charge for signing a piece of paper.VIVA ESPAñA

You need answer some questions first to rule some things out.
Is the starter making a noise when you turn the key or is it just clicking? If the lights light, but the starter makes absolutely no noise, then the power cable to the starter is bad or contacts are corroded. If you hear a click every time you turn the key but that is all, then the starter is bad and needs replace. Once it is removed, most parts stores can test it for you. If you can hear the starter spinning but its going real fast then again the starter is bad. If the starter is working properly (like on a really cold day when it doesn't start right away) but the car still won't start, then the starter is fine and your problem is either in the ignition or the fuel system. You may be able to narrow it down if you can read the codes, otherwise it needs a mechanic and you need to decide what is the car worth to you.

I have a 2009 Ford Escape that intermittently will not start. I bought it used from the dealer for my daughter to drive to school which is a couple of miles from home. This is what happens. I put the key...

Believe it or not I have found that one key will start my 2009 Ford escape and the other will not-even after replacing the battery in the key. I though it was a dead battery or possibly the starter but it is the key. I haven't figured out how to get the key repaired. Thank God I had a spare one!

No electrical. Car worked fine yesterday. Turn key, and nothing.

Either there is a bad connection on the battery (MUST BE METAL TO METAL CONTACT)
Or you could have a bad ignition module. Most likey cause is battery or connections

Ma wish to check starter it could be bad or have loose wires on it. There may be a starter relay in the fuse box under the hood it may also be bad.
