Question about Ford Focus

1 Answer

When I try and start my car, the engine does not turn over at all. The battery & oil lights come up. Even though the engine doesn't start, all the other functions work (ie. windows, radio, guages).

Does my 6 cylinder 3.0 engine need replaced on my 2001 ford ranger?


If you ran the engine for 20 minutes with no oil, it has likely been damaged significantly and has locked up. Surely you would have had a low oil pressure light. First step will be to see if the engine even turns or not.

What is wrong when you turn the key to start and the radio and all the instruments turn on but the starter doesn't click and the engine doesn't turn on even after trying to jump start it


Dead battery

Dangerous practice to try & jump a dead battery

The battery cables could be loose at either end or corroded internally

Most likely the battery is worn out, if original to car
since it was new, or the starter solenoid is worn

You do not want to jump any vehicle made after the
year 2000 or your asking for possible problems with
todays electronics.

You need a good battery that has been tested & fully
charged, then only jump with a jump pack,not another car

Mk4 gti vr6 has power but doesn't start, runs with pop start


Could be a number of things but may want to begin by checking wiring to starter, battery, or even the ignition switch. These components may not turn your engine light on.

I disconnected my battery and cleaned the cables and re-connected. Now my car will not start. The lights work the horn etc. What do i need to do to start the engine?


the battery may be faulty,just because the lights & horn work doesn't mean that the battery is enough power to start the engine the battery may have a weak sell that breaks down when you engage the starter try turning the headlights on & then try to start the engine & see how dull the headlights become,if they almost go out the battery is very low or faulty......hope this helps......cheers.

I have a 2000 Subaru Outback and recently the ABS light came on while driving out to my parents'. When I got there, I called our mechanic and made an appointment for later in the week to have it...


Here is an idea. Check the connections between the battery and the car's ground and the starter. Then find the ground cable which connects the engine to the car and check the connections there as well. Often times odd ball electrical problems are caused by a faulty ground, especially when there is a starter issue. May help, costs nothing but a few moments of your time, and once in a dozen times it is the problem.

Car wont start, doesn't even turn over. battery is good though, boost does not work. think it might be the starter?


Its a good bet. Be sure the battery connections are good too.. Flip on the headlights and then try to start it.. have someone watch the lights.. If they go dark. You have a bad battery or bad connection. If the lights stay bright then you need to look at starter connections/starter/starter solenoid.

When starting car starter turns engine over slow. battery seems to be good unless it doesnt have enough cranking amps. battery test is good altenator working good


It sounds like the battery don't have the cranking amps needed to turn the engine over fast enough. Even though it is starting, soon it will drain more and won't start.

Engine sounded noisy & scratchy when i drove to school oil light on. Got back to car after 10 mins everything came on (radio etc) but when i went to turn it over everything just cut out like dead...


after the vehicle cooled completely and all the oil drained down it showed half full? that would mean it was anywhere from 2 to 2.5 quarts low? unless you mean that it showed halfway up the full / safe area on the dipstick.

the oil light being on usually means low oil or low oil pressure, if the vehicle still doesn't try to start after it is completely cool then you might have a locked up engine or multiple problems, check the oil again now that it has been sitting awhile look for water in the oil also check for oil in the water.

check battery connections again, make sure they are tight, if lights and such work then try to get a jump from someone. even new batteries can go bad

I would definitely be worried about that oil light though.

good luck and I hope this helps.

If your gas lines were froze then there is obviously water in your fuel system which even once thawed could prevent your car from starting and may not run good if it does. With that being said it obviously has to be cold for your gas lines to freeze and cold weather is ******* your battery especially if it sits for a while. Turn on your headlights and see if they are working good as well as your dome light and radio. If they are not working good or at all charge the battery with a battery charger, even though you have tried to jump it. Your car will have a fairly small battery and the smaller the cold cranking amps your battery is rated for the worse it will be in cold weather, possibly even not turning your engine over. If you do all this and it does not work it may be your starter but my money is on the battery.
