Question about Ford Explorer

Open Question

2002 Explorer Sport Won't start after battery died, then charged.

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.

2001 ford explorer sport wont charge


I'm not sure if you have all of the info you need to go forward with this.
The battery may be rated for 800 amps but could have less than 12 volts if the alternator is not charging it.
It could have a dead cell which would keep it from holding a charge.
You would need to check the charge of the battery with a volt meter, then see if the alternator is charging at 14 volts when the engine is running. The battery should be at least 12 volts with the engine off.
The problem could be in the wiring from the key switch or dash gauges back to the alternator.

2002 ford explorer eddie bauer crank but won't start up.


Hello
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

Why won't my car start after the temperature drop


Either your battery is old do not carry charge from the alternator. Or the charge is leaked from your batter due to door or some light is open. Check basic doors and other stuff closed.

Battery light comes on intermittently


Your alternator is starting to go out, or the drive belt could be some what loose, you still have some time if it's the alternator before you have to replace it, (gives you time till pay day),but when the light stay on, needs to be change out or your car will die out, due to no elec, power, and will run only till your battery drains.

My 96' Jeep Cherokee will not turn over or start


ASE Mechanic here. check all the fuses to start, and check voltage on battery. if there was a battery draw all night the vehicle might have started but the alternator could not charge the battery because its power was too low and causing the ignition to die and then not allowing the vehicle to start. keep me posted!!!!!!!!!!!

Back door of explorer wont open, only the window does


First you need to somehow get the inside trim off of the rear lift gate. This can be tricky with the lift gate not opening, but it can be done. Be careful not to damage your trim. Inside you should be able to see the back side of the handle, wiggle the handle and see what connecting rod is not moving, there should be a little plastic piece broken. replace that and you should be fine.
