Have you tried pushing the lever like you are lowering the bucket while starting it? Sometimes the pumps on these can drag the engine back while starting, especially if cold. It's best to shut them down with the bucket in the air some. Let me know how it goes.

If you are running any extra systems, ie amps, subs, high watt speakers, etc. etc. you may need to get a better batter, like the blue. or yellow top one. check with auto zone.

I am trying to replace all the factory speakers in my 2003 mountaineer i think there is a sub i want to run all the aftermarket speakers to an aftermarket amp if there is a sub can i also run it to a amp...


no problem with replacing all speakers with ones that are compatable wth you new amp .. and that means the the speaker impedance has to be wtihin the range of what the amp can drive (like 4 ohm, 8 ohm, 16 ohm) .... the subwoofer needs inputs from both left and right channels .. it also needs its own amplifier and low pass filter .. this all may be built into your after market amplifier .. if so you will have an output marked sub (that will directly drive the subwoofer) .. or you may have a low level outdput marked sub that goes to your subwoofer amplifier if it has one .. .. sometimes the woofer has its own built in amplifier and filter .. it then just needs power and inputs from each channel .. since you are running 500 watt speakers, they likely already have a subwoofer component .. (speakers that extend down to 20 hz or lower .) if so, you may not need an additional sub-woofer .. just make sure all the speakers are phased correctly .. (wired to work together not fighting each other ..) .... an amplifier capable of driving 500 watt speakers can draw peak currents that are very high .. so power wiring would have to be very heavy and preferably go directly to the battery with an inline fuse right at the battery ..

Car wont start. when key is turned i get weird clicks.


You said you checked your battery, did you check volts and amps? It's possible that your battery is not functioning properly. You may need a new one. Does it start if you try to jumpstart it?

Cutlass supreme wont start


It could possibly be the starter, but before you get that far make sure the Battery cables are connected very tight. If loose the car won't start or do anything. Also make sure the battery cable is grounded.
