Question about 2000 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

My 2000 Ford Mustang will not start. When I try to start it there is a rapid clicking sound. I cleaned the battery with a brush, and still the same thing. Also when I go to lock my car, the horn sounds very weak, this started when the car wouldn't start.

1998 ford mustang no start just a single click

If the starter is clicking when you turn the key that means it is getting power. It could possibly be a bad new starter but before taking it out and testing check your battery and ground connections. Make sure they are clean by using some sand paper. There is also a ground wire that hooks to engine make sure it is hooked up and not corroded. Even though you bought a new battery make sure it is fully charged. Remember to remove the ground from battery before taking any positive wires off. Hope this helps.

Car make rapid clicking sounds when attempting to start

Thats usally a bad battery or bad battery cable connections. If the battery is garunteed to be good and charged, then start looking for a loose terminal or heavily corroded terminals.

Car makes clicking sound when i try to crank it

the rapid loud clicking sound is the solenoid on your starter motor. usually indicating that the starter motor is defective or the battery needs charging or replacing at this time of year older batteries tend to die due to the cold.

1 test battery, look at battery and see if it has a window on top if so see if it is green if not it most likely needs replacing, test by switching on headlights and then trying to start the car if the lights dim or go out when you turn the key this indicates the battery is bad, if the lights stay bright this indicates a problem with your starter motor.

I hope this was helpful.

When I turn the key I get a rapide clicking sound

Check your ground wire for battery where it connects to your frame.

Also check/clean the connections where the positive wire goes to the starter solenoid. Any connection you run into from the battery, clean them off with a wire brush or sandpaper.

Starter Solenoid can also be failing/dead, these can be tested for free at most auto part stores if you remove them from the vehicle.

First, make sure your battery is not dead or weak. A simple Multimeter can test your car battery.

Clean your battery cable connections at the battery and starter. Also clean where the cables connect to the battery. Cleaning means to take a wire brush or sand paper to get rid of rust/corrosion.

If the above does not remedy it, I would have your starter and starter solenoid tested for free at your local auto parts store.
