Question about Cars & Trucks
Iv tryed diffrent batteries , beat on the starter , and tryed to turn the crank by hand nothing
IF you drown a diesel then you have sucked up water into the cylinders and it will not turnover because of the hydraulic lock from the water.. Normally it bends rods and does damage to the heads and studs . To get it to turn over remove all the injectors and turn over by hand and the water will squirt out of the injector holes. When you have turned it and all the pistons have pushed as much water out as possible then the starter will exhaust the rest re insert the injectors and see if it will start. If it does but makes knocking noises and runs bad then you may have to consider an engine rebuild.. Next time you want to swim a diesel consider having a snorkel fitted professionally as it saves on engines.. You will have to change all the transmission oils as well as water gets in via the breathers

SOURCE: 1993 Ford Explorer wont start
I remember reading in the owners manuel of my 93 exploer about a cut off button. If wont allow your car to start if you are in an accident, and sometimes, even if you hit a pot hole or bump too hard, this can also trigger it. It can be reset though, and I believe it is located between the front and back seats in the middle. Not sure where, because it has been a month or more since I read it. But maybe some else knows just where to look.

SOURCE: Starter will not turn over
I had this problem and had my vehicle towed to two different places and was out a lot of money to find out it was the key. The security code had reset itself and the explorer acted as if it were being stolen therefore not allowing it to start. It has to be fixed by an authorized Ford Dealership. No one else has the ability to fix it. I hope this helps you not to have to pay two machenics for one problem. Thanks

When u try to start the engine, do the lights on the dash board turn off and come back when u release the key. If the do the battery connections are loose or the battery needs charge. If u start the engine and the lights don't turn off they stay lit something is wrong with the starter or the relay for the starter not working
