The ground wire from the battery to the engine block must have a bad connection. If the cable at the battery is clean and tight, then the ground connection is corroded or loose at the block. Let me know what you find.

1999 ford explorer wont start. battery is new.wont start when jumped. it tries to turn over but barely. then only hear a click. when you turn the key the dash lights and radio lights flicker on an

Sounds like starter motor given your slow to no turnover, I assume your new battery has full charge, if not, check with meter, it may be a defective battery, or another issue with connections, did you clean cable connections when you put in new battery? I assume your engine was running properly before battery change and is not partially seized due to overheating or low oil.

Good luck,

Starter wiill not even engage turned the key on and nothing ran fine when I parked it and got up in the morning and wont even tur n over. Brand new battery

Hmm, possible problems:
- starter or starter solenoid defective.
- neutral switch or wiring thereto defective. Shift selector has to be in Park or Neutral to start. Sometimes brake pedal has to be pressed also for starter to turn.
- remote starter system defective (if you have this) This would be hard to diagnose.
I would first confirm if the starter works by putting 12V directly from positive pole on battery to positive connector on starter solenoid (use jumper cable, and wear goggles in case of massive sparking when you accidentally touch ground.)

How do i get my car to start after battery is low?

I recommend removing the battery and the battery box.Purchase a ground cable that will reach from your engine block to your battery. Attach your original ground cable to the engine block.. Attach the new ground cable to the engine block and then install battery clamp to your new cable...Reinstall battery box and battery reconnect pos. & neg. terminals

Car wont turn over put new battery and starter in still nothing and the security light keeps coming on

Turn on the head lights then try to start the car with someone watching them. If the lights dim it will show at least that the circuit is complete and there is a load draw. If nothing happends, check the ground cables and wire and check again.

Now that i changed my battery It doesnt want to start for me, what else could it be??

When you say it doesnt start, does it mean the engine wont turn over.? If yes , check your main fuse located just beside the battery plus terminal, the one with cable attached to it. Replace if busted. Are all the lights and horn functioning? Check also ground cable and connections.(- or minus side of the battery)

All of a sudden my car won't start, so, I charge it for an hour put it back in and was able to start it. I bought a brand new battery but it didn't work. It only work when I charge it.

Just because you bought it new, doesnt mean it was up to par to install in your car. You charging it brought it up to the necessary power levels required to start. It sounds like the alternator is going out. Check the output voltage and amps with a meter. Anything under 12.3 vlts and 200-300amps, and your alternator is no good.
