    Using the device to check any fault, scans and comes back "NO CODES", I wasn't happy when I filled the gas last time in some remote country side. Not sure if that caused the problem. Is there any way I can check for proper fuel pressure myself. Thanks for the immediate response though.

    Changed the relay switch, and while changing the fuel filter did not see any pressure from the fuel pipe(I did not have to do anything to de-pressurise the fuel pipe). Tried starting and it did not, Not sure if there is power getting to the fuel pump, I hear no sound near the fuel tank if I open the fuel tank cap, while the ignition goes to ON position. Pls advise and many thanks for your fast responses, Thanks

    Thank you for the response, Have changed the Relay switch, fuel filter and the Fuel pump (today). I bring the ignition switch to ON position I hear the little click sound, but DOES NOT start, not sure if Iam missing any thing in the process. Also made sure the fuel reset button is pushed down. Thanks

    stupid question, removed the fuel pipe just before the fuel filter, and brought the ignition switch to ON shouldn't the fuel spew out if the pump is working ? Gas in the fuel tank shows little less than 1/4 of the tank. Thanks

    to check fuel pressure you need to buy a fuel pressure test gauge for a Ford, about $50, the test port is on the top of the engine in the pipe that goes over and supplies fuel to the injectors, it look like a tire valve.

    sounds like your fuel pump has failed, that is the common cause of this problem, there should be a low whinning coming from tank with key turned to run it lasts for 1 second.

check your battery make sure terminals are clean and corrosion free . put a charger on your battery to make sure it is charged fully then see if it starts easier if it does great and if it happens again get your battery tested its either your battery altenator or starter relay

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Since you have power inside the car, the battery and power connection should be good. You still want to make sure you have the best possible connection because if the starter isn't getting the correct amount of volts, it won't turn. So clean your battery terminals and post to make sure. Check your ignition fuse too. It should be labeled and shouls be located in the engine compartment fuse box. You may have a bad starter if the two steps before check out. You can take a hammer or pole, just something to make contact with your starter. You want to tap it five to seven times. Then try to start the van. If it starts, you have a bad starter and need to get it changed. I am thinking it is the starter because you have been having starting problems. Hit it and see if your van will crank up. Let me know what happens.

check your battery cables. Make sure they dont pull out of the lugs and make sure they are grounded properly as this will cause you this problem. had similar experience not long ago.

Check the alternator to. You can take it in and have it tested or jump start it and disconnect your battery and see if it dies. IF it dies then the alternator is bad.

Ford E-250 Handicap van will not turnover


Electrical problems are always the hardest to troubleshoot, that's why your shop could not find anything, they had not searched long enough, or looking in the wrong place. The shop may have checked the starter,solenoid,battery,relay( if equipped with), and then they gave up. It may be the ignition switch,or ignition safety switch( if equipped with ) there is almost always a way to bypass electrical equiptment to check if it is the problem. These test should be performed in the proper manner. You may need a new shop, to handle your electrical problems.
