It sounds more like the fuel pump to me, if you don't hear the pump when you turn the ignition to the on position, that's the problem, check to make sure the fuse and the fuel pump relay are still good before you change the pump.

My 2000 ford contour se would not start....put a new battery but still.....


does the red light near the clock flash . This is the anti theft system. Mine sometimes wont start if this light is on or flashing. I sometimes turn the key over to the other side and it starts.. You may have an issue with the anti theft system an or your key may need re-programming. If this is not the problem than there may be ignition issues. Check the fuse panel under the hood for a bad relay or blown fuse. The panel is beside battery. The other fuse panel is under the steering wheel check it also for bad fuses. You can test the fuses with a multimeter set on continuity or resistance..

1999 ford contour that wont crank


You mean wont CRANK or CRANKS but WONT RUN???? 4 cyl or V6 auto or manual trans????????? The 8th VIN digit would be most helpful as there are 4 different engines for that car. Its really cheaper to check items before you replace them. The starter should have a smaller BLACK wire that should have power on it when trying to crank the car. You say it wont crank, then check the neutral switch on the trans. Try putting it in neutral to start it. If it has a manual trans, the clutch switch on the pedal may be bad. There is a starter relay in the fuse box under the hood that powers the starter, does it click if you turn the key to start? if it does then the relay is at least trying to work, but doenst mean the contacts inside are good, If it does not click, then the neutral switch may be bad.Check the BLACK/YELLOW wire at the trans switch, if it has power on it, the switch may be bad, ground that (Black/Yellow)wire and see if it cranks. I dont know if there are any other relays in the fuse box that you can swap for the starter relay for test purposes.

Battery keeps dieing


THERE WILL BE A WIRE FUSE LINK THAT MAY BE BURNED. SOMETIMES THEY ARE HARD TO SEE BECAUSE THEY ARE COVERED WITH RUBBER AND YOU CAN NOT SEE THE DAMAGE HIDDEN BENEATH THE COVER. START THERE.
