Question about 1995 Ford Aspire
I have a 1995 Ford Aspire, just today it gave me a problem, when I try to start it it won't crank, it won't turn any lights on the dash, it won't do a thing. I tried to jump-start it and nothing, same exact thing, I connected my F-150 battery just to make sure the battery wasn't the problem, and it did the exact same thing, and the Aspire's battery did worked on my truck, since the car was just a couple of blocks from home I decided to pull it with my truck, but I was not able to move the shifter to neutral, this is a automatic transmission vehicle, I had the key on, where it should be on, but the shifter will not move, what can be causing this?
I had a similar problem and my shifter would not work until I got the electrical problem fixed. This was very frustrating, because I wanted to push it from the street to my garage and it obviously wouldn't roll if you can't get it to neutral. You may have a main fuse that is blown that is preventing the 12V current from reaching anything. There is also a fuseable link that is a small wire that is like a fuse that can also overheat and break connection. Your owners manual should show you the location of the main fuses. The fuseable links are usually on the front shock towers and each can be checked with a continuity tester. What you can do is get a good 12V test light and check how far the current travels starting from the positive battery terminal, until you find the problem. Check for breaks in wires and shorts. Since you know your battery is good, it has to be the wiring if its not making it to the fuse box. Just use the process of elimination to go one step at a time.
