does it clcik? turn on your headlights and try cranking the engine over, if the lights don't dim then your wire to your starter is not recieving power to the starter solnoid. there is a round device monted on the side near the battery that has a wire that goes to the battery and one that goes to the starter then there will be one small wire which actavates the starter take a pair of jumper cables place the car in park turn the key to the run postion hook up one end of the cable to the positive side of the battery and the other end to the small wire if it cranks over it means the wire is not working and will have to be tested for aa bad fuse or a fuseable link. Next hook the cable that is connected to the positive side of the battery and connect it to the other side of the solinoid that goes to the starter if it cranks yo know the solinoid is good if it does not replace the solinoid and that should fix your problem. If it does not crank on the first test replace the solinoid anyway, if it still does not work the starter is bad or loose/ You can remove the starter and take itto autozone and they can test it for free. Hope this helps get you up and going and if it does not post what you find here on the e-mail you recieve. Thanks for your time.

Testimonial: "gr8 advice"
theres a solenoid that selects gears it can trick the gearbox into limp mode, id have that checked before spending big money i spent 6000 on a new gearbox (not standard price i had a heavily modified gearbox) because the standard gearbox did the same turns out it was an $80 solenoid, i found out after forking out the money. any ford dealer should be able to plug it in and run diagnostic checks for you

Hi, this is a very common problem and its to do with the return spring inside the seat belt mechanism, the only way of fixing this is to replace the seat belts with new or second hand ones, unless their is any twist in the belt then the problem will be the return mechanism so the only option would be to replace the belt and mechanism,
so check for any twists by pulling the belt out fully and then let it go back in slowly and see if that makes any difference if not then the only option would be to replace the belt and mechanism
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
