Question about 2003 Ford Focus

1 Answer

Engine won't crank or seem to get power on key turn.

2002 Focus ZTW, manual. Working great, suddently won't turn over engine. Can be push started, and seems to run normally until engine is stopped again.
No apparent drain on battery when ignition key is turned. Nothing seems to happen under hood. Engine lights all on, apparently normal.

    Turns out that the clutch switch that engages the ignitition was stuck? Manually pushed it in a couple of times, and then all was well.

    Thanks all for the help.

More than likely, your starter has gone out. If the battery is fully charged and its not even turning over, that is what i would start with.

My 2002 pt cruiser will not start. Seems to fire but won't start. Found some wires not attached to anything. Is there a kill switch somewhere.


What do you mean by seams to fire but won't Start ? When you turn the key to start what happens ? Does the starter spin the engine ? If so this would be a engine cranks , now if it does spin the engine an the engine doesn't start an run this is call an cranks no start condition .Now on the other hand if the starter doesn't spin the engine when you turn the key to start ,then this is referred to as a no crank - no start . There are very different diagnostic steps for each of these conditions . Your best bet is to have your vehicle diagnosed by a qualified technician .

I have 2002 pt . I have no problem with it, started it and put in gear, went to pull out and it shut off, now it won,t start back up, put new battery in, new switch, still nothing,


Possible starter failure if the engine doesn't crank. You can try tapping on the starter motor using a blunt object while turning the key to see if it starts. If it starts, suspect a defective starter motor. If it is a manual transmission, you can push start it in gear

Cranks but will not start


Did who checked the engine, did he check spark plugs? Give it a shot to check if they are ok or do they need replacement.

check or have someone check your neutral safety switch by putting transmission in park, turn ignition switch to start, and move gear selector lever at same time. if engine starts while doing this test you need to adjust safety switch! If you have a manual trans make sure to push clutch pedal as far as possible while turning key!

I have Manual Nissan Altima 1997. It does not crank.


If you can hear the starter solenoid click, when you turn the key to start, then check that the large positive wire going to the starter solenoid from the battery has a good contact at each end. If you don't hear the solenoid click, then check that the small wire going to the starter solenoid has a good contact and power.

2002 Tahoe engine will not start


Electrical problems are difficult to diagnose in person without testing ...however, it seems that you may be loosing the body ground, causing power loss to the clock and likely the computer as well. As the starter is able to turn the engine, likely there is no problem with engine grounding. While cranking, the accessory side of the ignition switch should remain "hot" otherwise you would loose the clock every time you started it up. If it's not a ground problem, I'd look at the ignition switch itself to make sure it's not dropping power to ignition system while starter is engaged. on some vehicles this can also happen at the starter relay if an ignition bypass is used to provide hotter starting spark.
