Sounds like a bad connection at the battery terminals, or a low battery.

It could be caused by the battery or its connections.

Try this procedure:
Check the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.
If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
Check that the battery cable plus post, goes to the starter, Minus post to a good ground, like the engine.
If wiring is ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter.
Problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear or starting relay, Have someone bang on the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging the bendix gear..
Hope this helps.

use wd-40 or liquid wrench and a tooth pick- use toothpick to hold the little metal flap in lock back and spray oil inside- locks weren't uses much as you have remote locks- lack of use can cause rust/lockup
key will start engine? if not- you might have gotten the wrong keys- or there might be a different one for the door locks from the ignition key

Sounds like there may be condensation building up on the inside of the top cover of the master cpu unit. Or possibly in a connector that feeds it data. The door locking issue would point to either electronic or vacuum issue. With All of the gauges doing the swing thing and it has no issues when running hot I'd look for condensation.

P0411 is what is says is my problem with my 1997 Ford Taurus When my heater is on it makes a clicking noise. What could is the most likely problem and how can i fix it?


i belive that the dtc that you have is not related to the clicking noise at all. apparently p0411 is concerning the secondary air injection. the clicking noise however would be a stuck or broken blend door or blend door motor. usualy the hvac system utilizes 3/4 of these blend door motors. to further diagnose this start your heater with the heat on full and fans at the normal face vents and move the vent selector from that inital position to the last position and if the clicking quits at any point then it would be that blend door motor. if that doesnt work then try to slowly move the heat selector from full heat to full cold, same deal. and if still at that point its making noise see if it goes away by selecting recirculate to fresh air....
