SOURCE: 95 F150 wont crank

the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

SOURCE: antitheft problem

Something in your anti theft system has failed. The key,transceiver, or module. The only way to find out is to run a diag on that circuit. You will need special tester.

SOURCE: 1999 ford winstar anti theft problem

Fords have a chip in the keys and a reader in the ignitions switch, when you insert the key and the theft light stays on solid then the key has passed. If the light flashes quickly then the key didn't pass the check and the vechicle will not start. This can some times be a key problem and some times a reader problem . But the keys can only be programed with a computer in this situation. The dealer or most lock smiths have these computers.

1999 Crown turned ignition switch to start - heard pop - no electrical power


If nothing works including the lights, something happened between the battery and the fuse box.
There are some fuseable links between the battery and the starter solenoid or between the solenoid and the fuse box.
I'd start with the battery cables and look for those fuseable link wires.

Turned ignition on, heard a loud pop and everything went off. tried ignition again, got nothing, no battery turn over, nothing.


Start by checking the fuses and then the battery connections, this sounds like a fuse poped maybe a main fuse, if its a fuse then replace the fuse if it pops again then theres a dead short somewhere, these are famous for bad starters and starter relays going bad, so see when fuse pops again if its when key is turned on or when you try to crank the motor, if its when cranking then its mostlikely the relay or starter, this main fuses would be in the engine compartment fuses box.

Chevy Cobalt - Battery saver light is on and the car won't start.


A couple days ago, my ignition went out on my car, (or so I thought), because my key wouldnt come out, and it would only turn back half way. Luckily, I had a spare key made to my car so i would use that to get in my car after I manually locked it. And it was good for a few days. Then one morning when I went to get into my car for work, it wouldnt start. A couple lights came on my dash that read "battery saver mode" and "engine power reduced". Then the security light came on (a little lock with a car picture flashed). And it started clicking and whining. My next thought was WTF?! So I woke my boyfriend up, we charged the car (battery is in the trunk if u didnt know) And it kinda started. The car was jumping all over and puttin and spuddering. We both knew their had to be way for the key to come out of the car, it was recognizing it was in park, and i would move the steering wheel and nothing. Well, under the steering wheel, theres a little cover, take that off, and put your finger up in that hole, you`ll feel a button, push that and your key will come right now. I started my car after that, and everything was normal!!! It still gets stuck in the ignition, but this is my temp. fix untill i get the money to get a new ignition =)

Won't start after cleaning battery terminals


Sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm with starter disable. By disconnecting the battery the alarm reset and the defualt setting is usually to set the alarm automatically (active arming). You have three options..
A. If you have the key fob that went with the alarm you can disarm the alarm.
B. If no key fob is available you can disconnect the battery again, turn the ignition key to the on position and reconnect the battery. This usually doesn't allow the alarm to set and allows the car to start.
C. Remove the aftermarket alarm system. This is usually the long term fix i recommend if the fob isn't available. Option B should get you going though.

Left keys in ignition overnight, turned to have interior lights on. battery is dead, cant get key out or pop trunk to get to the battery to charge it.


If you know anyone that has a portable booster, you should be able to plug the cord from the 12v outlet on the booster into the 12v (cigarette lighter or accessory charger) in the car, and get enough power to pop the trunk.

Fuse or what


Your multifunction switch on the steering column controls your exterior lights. The GEM module controls the interior lights and other stuff. If bad, it would not blow fuses. WHich fuse blows?
Your Ford dealer might be familiar with this issue, so call the service dept and ask them and get a quote. It may be wiring.
reoprt back.

  • The high beams are inoperative
  • Circuitry.
  • Multifunction switch.
  • Go To Pinpoint Test C .


--------------------------------------------------------------
Principles of Operation
Generic Electronic Module (GEM) The generic electronic module (GEM) receives inputs from the following:
  • door ajar switches
  • liftgate ajar switch (wagon)
  • liftgate glass switch (wagon)
  • headlamp switch
  • keyless entry keypad switches
  • the powertrain control module (PCM) (vehicle speed signal)
  • ignition switch
  • remote keyless entry transmitter
The GEM uses these inputs to control the output to the battery saver relay and interior lamp relay. Both relays are integral to the central junction box (CJB) and cannot be accessed directly.
Interior Lighting Systems The GEM grounds the battery saver relay and interior lamp relay coils when any door ajar switch or the headlamp switch is closed. The interior lamp relay then supplies power to the interior lamp circuit. Vehicle speed must be less than 15 kph (9 mph) for the GEM to ground the interior lamp relay. The interior lamps will remain illuminated for a period of up to 25 seconds after all doors are closed or until the ignition is switched from the OFF position, or the GEM receives a vehicle speed signal. Actuating the interior lights from the headlamp switch will operate at any time.
Illuminated Entry Illuminated entry is activated when a keyless entry keypad switch provides ground on the GEM input or when the GEM receives an unlock signal from the remote keyless entry key fob. The GEM then provides ground to the battery saver and interior lamp relay coils. Illuminated entry is deactivated when the GEM receives a lock signal from the remote keyless entry key fob or if the GEM receives ground inputs from the keyless entry keypad switch lock code. Illuminated entry will also be deactivated when the GEM receives input voltage from the ignition switch.
Battery Saver The battery saver is activated when the GEM is not receiving voltage input from the ignition switch (off position). The GEM will then provide ground to the battery saver relay coil for a maximum of 30 minutes depending on the state of the interior lamp switch inputs to the GEM. The energized battery saver relay switches voltage to the demand lamp circuit and the interior lamp relay coil. After time-out, the GEM removes ground to the battery saver relay disabling the demand lamp circuit.
Puddle Lamps The puddle lamp relay operates reverse from the battery saver relay and the interior lamp relay. The puddle lamp relay coil receives voltage when the ignition switch is in the START or RUN position, which disables the circuit to the puddle lamps.
Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the system.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.

Ignition switch won't turn with key-so won't start


How old is your key? An old key can give you real grief. Also, do you have to press brake to release ignition lock? Its doubtful that a dead battery would cause your car iginition not to turn, but try jumping car with engine off and see if that helps. Unless you heard a loud pop or saw a spark I don't think you messed anything up. Try disconnecting the cigarette lighter when starting and see if that helps too. Check voltage on the battery, should be between 13-15 V or so when car is off. Lower than that and u need to replace battery, even though that won't necessarily solve issue you're having now.
hope this helps
