Sorry to say. But pull the starter back off and look at the flywheel. Are the teeth on the flywheel eaten off? Replace the flywheel. It will take a day to do on the ground. It will cost $600 to $700 at a shop.

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Explorer V-8. Won't turn over.

The next thing to check is 1: The starter solenoid (usually on the fender with batt. wire connected to it)
2: Use a breaker bar and manually turn engine at center crank bolt (clockwise). Either the solenoid is out or you have something more $/serious with the engine mechanically.

SOURCE: 1999 ford expedition wont turn over

this sounds easy
now i under stand that your windows and lights are working but let me tell you somethig speciel

if you have a motor in an remote control car it is not running then you go and check it in a torch and it works this is why

a starter motor on a car uses a lot of power and is very high draw (takes alot from the battery)
a light or a power window motor uses less so it can provide the power needed where the starter motor needs more and it can not provide

hope you get what i mean

if i put a motor out of a corsa (1.4, 4 cylinder verry small motor) and put is in a bus it wont move it cause it is too hard
then if i put it in a go cart it will fly
tyr a new battery or see if you can borrow a friends to test it if it starts with a fully charges battery then all you need is a battery if not let me know more and i will do some home work for you

You should check your blend door, go to the center of your dash look down towards the floor right at the bottom on the hump (tunnel area) you will see a black or same as interior color, cover it has small slits cut in it, it is held in by two expanding type plastic bolts, they do not unscrew, just pull them out, one on each side. Once removed locate the white small box with a wiring harness connected to it, a little to the right hand side. This is the stepping motor that controls the blend door. Remove the stepping motor, and reconnect the harness, look at the motor drive unit and operate the heater control knob, does the motor turn, if it does then use a mirror and look at the drive end of the blend door itself, it is probably broken. If the door is broken, this repair just got difficult, the entire dash will have to be removed to access the environmental station, once accessed there are about 10 screws that hold the top cover on the enviromental station, undo these screws and remove the top cover, then you can remove and replace the blend door. If you are not comfortable with this difficultly level in repair I suggest you seek out your favorite local shop. removing the dash is not easy, there are alot of screws, some in very difficult places to reach. Testing the motor is easy. I hope this helps, let me know.

SOURCE: my ford f150 wont start, battery is good, have a

On the firewall is the starter motor relay. There are 2 large battery sized cables to it, and 1 smaller ( 16 AWG ) wire that is orange or orange with a stripe ( forget the color, want to say white or tan ).

When you turn the key to the start position, check the smaller gauge wire for +12 V. The case should be ground. If you do not get +12 on the orange wire, try starting the truck in neutral ( apply the parking brake, chock the wheel, etc normal safety precautions ). Test for +12 V at the small wire. This is the output of the DTR ( Digital Transmission Range ) sensor or in common terms the Neutral switch. The start position on the ign switch runs through the DTR to the starter motor relay coil.
If you have a stick, the DTR is replaced by the Clutch Pedal Position Switch ( clutch must be pushed in to start ).
If you have power to this ( at the times the truck won't start ) next is to check the both battery cable ends to see if they are corroded and making intermittent contact ( not probable but possible ).

My 2000 ford expedition wont turn over and I have a new battery and new starter sometimes it sounds like a vacuum

Sounds like your fuel pump died. Do a quick check by having someone just turn the ignition key to on without staring truck while you have gas cap off. If you hear a hum once key is turned on then fuel pump maybe good however has low pressure output. Then do a fuel pressure check. Engine obviously not getting gas. Before you go buy a new fuel pump check and or reset your fuel pump circuit. The fuel pump reset is on the passenger side lower right. You have to take off plastic door railing cover. Easy to get too and the button is red and easy to push. After you reset try again. Good luck. I went thru same thing you did this past december. However it ended up being my fuel pump. A real dirty job. By the way if it is your fuel pump buy the fuel line disconnector tool. And also buy a new fuel filter.

I have a 2000 ford expedition and it will not turn over and it is not allowing the radio to come on either the battery is fully charged lights on dash come on but nothing else happens no clicking no trying...

If the battery is fully charged, the headlights come on, etc,,,the alternator is working, as it was charging the battery the last time it was running, so I would see it as more of a starter/security issue........but becasue the radio is not coming on, I would seriously look at both the engine fusebox and interior fusebox for any issues that might be there......

Definetly sounds like an electrical problem, though

How to take a starter off a 200 ford expedition

  • Locate the starter on your Ford Expedition. Trace the positive battery cable until it splits. One branch of the cable will travel to the alternator and the other will go to the starter, which is about half the size of a football. The starter is made of two cylindrical pieces joined together, with one cylinder larger than the other. Generally, the starter is between the engine and the transmission. You can also look under your Expedition as well as under the air-intake manifold.
  • Use a floor jack and jack stands to raise the Expedition if the starter is located under the engine. Prop up one side of the frame by the front driver's-side door with the jack and place a jack stand to support the frame. Repeat the process for the front passenger side. Make sure all four legs of each jack stand are resting on the ground.
  • Disengage the negative battery cable on the Expedition. This rules out the chance of electrocution and also disengages the battery from the cooling fan, which sometimes can turn on even if the vehicle is turned off.
  • Expose the starter on your Expedition if there are any parts that prevent you from accessing it. For example, you may need to remove the air-intake manifold on some models and years of the
