Does the engine spin when key is turned,if not maybe a security problem. if it does spin but no start then check for spark and fuel first.

My1998 explorer just quit it won't start i got new


The 98 explorer is equipped with a power surge system to protect internal vehicle wiring, what this means is that if there is a short in the vehicles wiring the alternator will disengage. A way to tell if it is faulty wiring is to pull all the fuses out of the fuse block and try to start it if the engine turns over the problem is internal wiring. If not then you have to put all the fuses back.

Car won't start - repeatedly clicks when I try to crank


The first issue is the clicking response. That always means the starter isn't getting the voltage it needs which usually means a dead battery. If the battery is good under load testing then it's either the voltage regulator or a bad ground connection. The ground wire may have corroded so check that first and the battery connections. The ground wire bolts to the block. I recommend the you jump start the car after you find the problem. Now go to an auto parts store that will test your ignition system: alternator, battery, etc. while running. O'Reilly does it in MI. The car is old so it may need spark plugs, wires, fuel filter, etc. Candidly, it may be time to take it to a good mechanic.

I think you better have it towed, it may be cheaper in the long run. I would disconnect the battery, you could end up with a fire on your hands if the wires short out.

Start with the simple first. Check the voltage in the battery. Some new batteries are not fully charged. Next, clean the battery cables. Make the connectors shine and put a little electrical grease on the connectors.
