Question about Ford Explorer
The battery ran out over the course of one night due to the back gate/door was not closed all the way. Charged the battery, it is fine and holds a very good charge. The lights work, radio, everything else works, but the car won't start. You get no noise, no clicking, no sign at all that the ignition or starter is even trying to start the vehicle. Checked EVERY fuse (and I mean every) and I am at a loss. Before I pay to have it towed to the dealer, I was wondering if anyone else had a similar problem and or solution. I imagine it has something to do with the crappy theft system concerning the key, or lack of power reset something that will not let the car start. Any help would greatly be appareciated.

The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM
