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

Installing push rod Mitsubishi Eclipse


The engine is a overhead cam engine so no push rods are fitted
the first thing to check will be the starter motor solenoid then the starter motor for operation
anything else will require the engine to be removed to check the timing and why the engine won't crank
