Could be several problems - check the battery terminals to make sure they are clean. Next check the battery to see if it is fully charged. If both those items checked are OK then the next step is to check the starter.
Now the starter has a selenoid which engages and provides power to the starter motor when you turn the key to the start position.
If you only get a clicking noise then it could be the selenoid valve itself or the starter motor.. Some fords have the selenoid mounted on the firewall others are mounted on the starter motor itself.
So what you need to do next is bypass the selenoid valve and provide power directly to the starter - if the starter turns the engine over then the selenoid valve is the problem. If the starter motor doesn't turn the engine over then it's the starter motor and a replacement is necessary.
Sounds like you need a new starter. Did you check it out before you replaced the alternator and battery?
Some vehicles have a seperate selenoid on the firewall that engages when you turn to switch to start the engine. Others have the selenoid mounted to the starter. I
I would first bypass the selenoid valve and provide power directly to the starter motor. If it starts then it's the selenoid. If it doesn't then it's the starter motor - may have a flat spot in the windings or possibly burned but not shorted windings in the motor.
2000 why not post the DTC error for better answers/? and country.? now my answer from USA, cars. 1: in usa open hood, see vacuum sticker, its there. 2: in FSM there are 3, purge control and bypass VSV. and vent shut off VSV. so which one. ill answer for all 3. at the canister. (im looking ,in alldata.com so an you) 1: CAN , hose. one goes to tank, directly not that hose. 2: hose 2. is vent shut valve top of CAN, and goes to Vent can filter. 3: hose 3: to purge joint then purge valve. 4: and last host to bypass valve. this valve has 3 hoses (unique)
do you check the egr valve or the selenoid ........ look with the engine runing pull the trotle cable to rev the engine check the diagram from the egr valve is going to move at all times and the engine is going to missfire ........ then desconect the little hose from the egr selenoid rev the engine 2000 rpm you will see the diference
Beat on the starter with a hammer while someone tries to crank....if if cranks, you need a new starter selenoid. You can also bypass the selenoid by jump starting it with a screw drive to conduct much current between the two bolts on the starter selenoid. Be careful not to touch, unless your full of ****.
Battery terminal connection clean?
Starter selenoid clicking? - if not, wire from battery has a bad connection. If yes, starter has bad connection.
Try bypassing the starter relay (selenoid) with a jumper cable... does it turn over? If yes, replace the relay, if no, check the starter. A junkyard replacement should be a cheap fix.
