The battery might seem ok but I would take it to a place like Sears or a large auto parts store.Call them first to be sure they have a load tester.. Tell them the battery needs to be "load tested".When you turn the key to start it takes alot more amp power to turn the engine over.
I hope this helps you.

The best way to find out how many miles to the gallon a vehicle does, is aquire two 1 gallon containers fill them up with deisel and then run your car out of fuel, add 1 gallon and reset your trip meter, this way you will know then, Just make sure you have a self bleeding system on your car before you try this, as some deisels have too be bled.

Check voltage at trigger wire going to the solenoid. There should not be any voltage there except when the key is in start positon...if there is the ignition switch may be bad.

2000 ford escort want start. checked fuses and battery . try to turn over but want what can i check. it was running went in house and came back out would not start


Hi

Get a jump start, with good set of leads.

If no joy , follow the Positive lead from the battery to the starter motor, and give it a tap with a small hammer or big spanner, while someone turns the ignition key.

Good Luck !

Remember to give me a FixYa rating....Thanks...John.

WONT START


Thai is either ignition cylinder or starter coil, or a problem with starter motor/wirings to starter motor.

The starter motor must be energized directly (in neutral, and possibly using a remote switch) to check that is working.

If the starter motor is fine, check that there is power coming to starter motor when you ignite.
If there is no power, test power at ignition and eventually replace ignition.
