SOURCE: 2002 Taurus won't start.
all I had to do on a sable was to replace the belt but look at the battery there should be a wire coming from the battery going to another solenoid mounted under the hood and then going down to the starter get a 12 volt tester and see if you have power going to this solenoid cause it could be dead on one end and not going down to the starter

It has to have 2 batteries because it is a diesel engine. Diesels use compression to fire the combustion mixture instead of a spark plug as a gasoline engine does. It has glow plugs that heat the mixture up before starting to help promote this and it has probably twice the compression ratio,therefore it takes alot of amps to start it and that is why you have 2 batteries. No it still only has one solenoid for the starter but it has to use a gear reduction starter instead of a conventional one.

It sounds like it could also be the connection-check the wires going to it and the ground wire on the battery itself.

Today while driving my 2007 Ford Focus SE The day was getting warm so I turned on the A/C everything was working OK for about two or three Minutes then the ABS caution light came on and then we could start smelling something getting hot so I turned the A/C Off and by doing so the Caution Light went off and the smell went away. I got my car checked by a Mechanic he took a reading for trouble codes and told me all was normal but he wasn't equip for shorts and suspected it could be behind the dash, figured everything would be ok as long as we didn't use the A/C. So the family took the car to the store only to give me a call that now they weren't able to start the car. The battery seem to be in good shape with plenty of power but it didn't seem it was getting it to the starter in fact it took a jump in order to start the car at the store. now that I've got it home, the car starts fine but I Still Get An ABS caution light when I put the A/C on And that smell comes back.
