I think the only way the gear box would affect it from not starting is if it was not shifting into neutral or park. A vehicle needs to be in park or neutral to start.

Hi..1990 ford laser..engine turns over but wont start..plenty of petrol..battery good..starts after leaving for a few hours..runs for short time then cuts out again..think it may be ignition module--any...

maybe alternator is stuffed, try gettin it runnin and immediately disconnect battery while ya engine is runnin then if ya engine cuts out that may be your problem.

My 1986 ford laser kc won't start. When I turn the key the dash lights up and the ignition clicks but it won't kick over. I can push start it.

The clicking is the starter bendix. When you hear the clicking, this almost 100% of the time means that you do not have enough amperage for the bendix to spin the starter gear up and mesh so as to turn over your engine. In other words...your battery is weak. Try this test...If you can jump start the car, you probably need a battery replacement. If your battery is good, however, you may just have poor connection...corrosion etc and need to clean all your connections. Good Luck, Hope this helps!

Ford laser kf ghia, the power mirrors, digital clock and cd player have all stopped working, but the fuses are fine, what could the problem be and how can i fix it?


On my KF laser I had the same problem but it also stopped the AC and windshield wipers.

The fault was a worn ignition. These functions come available when the key goes past the accessory feature. On my car you can jiggle the key back towards the accessory and these work. It has been like this for some time but I have never bothered

If this is a red flashing light beneath the temperature guage it means that you do not have enough coolant. Top up the large white ball shaped reservior at the right hand side of the engine compartment just behind the battery.
