Question about 2004 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

My 2004 Mustang 3.9 liter V6 has been acting up today. For a couple months now the radio will go into search mode and never find a station or will find one and then refuse to change to a different one ( I thought radio going bad because its old). Today I went out to go to work and tried to start the car. Unlocked with remote unlock put my key into the ignition and turned to the start position it sounded like it tried to start but disnt . I tried again this time nothing no sounds anyways just a flashing theft light and gauges wrapping 360 before stopping on the right side of the dials. So I tried my other key ( due to theft light thought maybe it was a bad key) again nothing no sounds or attempts to start so I walked to work. My fiance looked at it when he got home and said when he place the key in the on position a clicking noise came from the dash and when he tried to crank it nothing happened again. He opened the door with the key in the on position and the dome light blinks in time with the clicking. The clicking sounds like my hazard lights or blinkers. The battery in the car is brand new replaced less than a week ago and all maintenance is up to date. Could anyone help me figure out what the problem is or how to fix it?

It sounds like it has a bad battery. Most auto parts stores will test it for you in about one hour if you take it to them.

SOURCE: 2005 ford taurus. Remote entry wont work theft light keeps blinking when key is engaged

HI, I'm reading your problem,
Let me explain something about your car.

2005 Ford Taurus, The key on that car has Chip inside of the key and receiver on the ignition switch,
Check if the key you are trying to use is Black and has a plastic head.
If not you need a key with that characteristics.
But if you have the right key, Remenber if you had drop on the floor, or hit with something,
Because some times they come damaged, with insignificat thins.
Remenber if you left the key close to a magnets like speakers.

If nothing aply at your case, you need to call a place Aloha Smith, they have the computer to program or reprogarm your key. IF not you can't start your car.

OK.. I hope this information work for you.

Thank's for submit yous question on fixya.com

SOURCE: Car used 2 days ago fine. Went to start today and

Yes, this sounds like a flat battery. You could try to get a jump start off someone else, so that you know it is definately not the engine. Otherwise, purchase a new battery and you should be fine.

SOURCE: JUST PAID OVER $600 A MONTH AGO - NEW STARTER,

Sounds like a faulty / intermittent Earth connection. Check all the battery and earth leads where they connect to the Battery, Engine, Starter Motor and Body. If possible disconnect, clean thoroughly by removing any corrosion or paint that could cause a poor connection, and reconnect making sure all are tight.

I have a 2008 v6 mustang. all of a sudden the car radio (factory) wont come on, i took it to ford they checked fuse box and nothings wrong is this covered under extended warrenty i purchased, what could be...


Why would you purchase an extended warrantee. Forget any warrantee,on any product. Have you even read, what your copy says?
Your vehicle should be covered for at least 3 years and 45 to 50 thousand miles.
What did the dealer say was covered? They know more about your vehicle, than any one trying to help you.
