You should get the started tested out of the car. If that's good check the starter relay. If thats not it then you can check the voltage drop and the resistance on the battery cable from the battery down to the starter( the positive cable).

2004 ford explorer will not turn over with key but remote starter switch makes it turn over


Its a good possibility that the Anti-theft is interferring with the circuit. If you have an extra ignition key, use that in case the password chip in your regular FOB has detriorated.

There is a brake sensor which is on the upper brake pedal. It interlocks with the starter to prevent starting without having your foot on the brake pedal. Check your brake lights for operation. If the brake lights stay dark with your foot on the pedal, the switch is broke or knocked out of position. A common problem.

Next, there are small wires for the starter solenoid. You can use a test light on one removed wire and ground the test light to the vehicle, the other end in the small wire. Turn the keyswitch to start, with brake pedal pressed and see if it lights up. If it does light up, the starter solenoid may be bad.

Battery level. Ford Anti-theft and some say Battery-saver, can cause both starting and charging problems. A fully charged battery can be at 13.2V- 13.6V. When Ford systems detect low voltage it can activate the Anti-theft, battery-saver, and even disconnect the charging system to allow the battery to completely drain. In some cases the Anti-theft drops starter voltage to around 7V so the starter will not spin. Have the battery tested.

I know of 2004 trucks that were jump started and showed charging, then after 5-10 minutes they lost the charging system. Some people lost the charging system at 70MPH and drove until they stalled. All because of the automatic features built into the trucks. A new battery fixed the problem. Your problem could stem from this.

Your battery could have a few dead cell, with jumper cable hook up, try to start engine, if all light go dim to off, replace battery, will not take a charge, replacing battery will take care of your problem.

2004 ford explorer will not start, bought a new battery changed the ends on battery cables will not start without a jump


New batteries can be bad, if when you jump it do hook both leads to the battery or one to the battery and one to the engine. if it is the second , you might have a ground problem, follow the ground cable to the engine and make sure it tight and not corroded. if there is a lot of corrosion it needs to be cleaned good or replaced

Replaced battery and starter. My 2004 ford explorer will not start. Auto zone checked battery it was bad and checked starter it was also bad. Both replace will not start


this is a stupid idea but one of my co-workers have a 98 explorer and she lost the chip in her key. after that it still wouldnt start turns out the anti-theft kicked in and they had to reset the fuel shut off switch. your battery replacement maybe did the same? not sure where your switch is but hers was up under her passenger side floor board up front somewhere around the kick panel it was a purdy red button

KEYLESS REMOTE FOR 2004 FROD EXPEDITION NOT WORKING, DID THE RESET FEATURE AND STILL DOES NOT WORK ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS?


Replace the battery. If that does not work, you can re-program it with another remote if you have one. If this is the one and only remote you have, you probably will have to take it to the dealer to have it reprogrammed.
