Is the Theft light on the dash flashing when you attempt to start? This is the first year ford started using the PATS system with the computer chip in the key. If the theft laght flashes when attempting to start, the system thinks in has a bad key and will shut the vehicle down.

Starter will not engage. full power to everything, lights, windows gauges, etc. No crank no nothing. acts like dead battery but everything else works.


Could b a weak battery. Make shure it has at least 12 volts. Change of temperature will make them act up. Cold cranking amps could not b up to par. Try jumping it with a known good one. If that dosent work check connections at bat, starter& especially the ground. Take negative cable off where it goes (bracket,motor,) &sand area clean, apply dialectric grease. A star washer under cable will help greatly. Try start again. Much luck 2 u.

I have a 1976 jeep j10. I have replaced the starter, starter solenoid, ignition module, both battery cables(positive,negative), cable from starter to starter solenoid, coil, cap and rotar. it will click...


Could be: a) starter cannot turn the motor flywheel (motor frozen or jammed)
or b) the battery is weak (not enough power to crank the motor)

Turn the dome light on and see if it is bright, see if light diminishes completely when engaging starter (high current drawn by starter).

Try to turn engine by pulling the alternator belt with transmission in neutral to see if motor is jammed. Or engage in a high gear and push the car and see if motor turns.

If motor is not frozen, jump and boost the battery if you suspect weak battery and see if you have the same problem.

99 mustang won't start it only do 1 click. If it


Battery good, cables good, all connections clean and tight, no corrosion on battery terminals?
Try to determine if click is from solenoid on the starter or starter relay. Turn the headlights on and watch them while someone turns the key to start. If they get dim, probably the starter-have it tested-even new ones are sometimes bad. If lights don't dim, you will need to check the start circuit. Check for power on the small wire to starter solenoid when key is held in start. If no power there, work back towards the ignition switch. Check the neutral safety switch-should have power in and power out when key held in crank. The ignition switch will have a start wire out of the switch going to the neutral safety switch. It should have power with key in start, the only time the start wire will have power.
Post back with what you find-good luck.

Turning over & cranking is the same thing

Check for fuel pressure at motor with a gauge
when you turn the key on

Check for spark or injector pulse when cranking

If the motor won't turn at all, check relays & possible
