Mke sure your battery is sending black wire to the chassis with a multi meter. One probe on - on battery and other probe on chassis. Or one pone on + and other probe on opposing side of main fuse. Should read a continuity reading, if not, tighten the earth strap or change the main fuse

2005 mountaineer won't accelerate

No one can tell why,it has to be checked
for codes & diagnosed as with all vehicle

I could say you may have one or more bad ignition coils
as they are common on your engine,but still have to test
many things to see what does work correctly,the other
things that don't will show up 90% of the time

Sounds ike my 1999 merc mountaineer wants to start, but then clicking noise. someone says can knock it in place with screwdriver and this true?

A mechanic would check for voltage at the battery, then the cables, then voltage at the starter. The starter gets voltage from the battery and from the key switch to energize the solenoid.
Fords need at least 10.5 volts and 200 amps to crank the starter. A battery can have a dead cell and show 12 volts but no cranking amps.
