Get a multimeter and test battery output, if more than 13v when you turn key to crank position if below then battery may be faulty and not holding charge, check starter relay and fuse, if ok also check for any parasitic draw from any accesary that might draw down battery when engine not running

Testimonial: "I knew battery was good. truck doesnt crank. cannot check battery output if you cannot get starter to draw.but it did lead me to check starter relay."

    sorry i ment to say 13v + is ok any thing below 12- is bad or low state of charge

  • steve noel Oct 03, 2009

    there are similler relays near by remove one and swap it with starter's if it doese the same thing then yes the signal voltage is not being recived also check fuse

Parked car last night no problems. this morning will not even crank, plenty of battery but the lights won't even dim when I turn the key nothing at all.

If you don't mind troubleshooting, I recommend you try jumping the solenoid. This will tell you if it's the starter versus the switch/wiring.

Please see my tip at and let me know if you have questions.

2002 BMW 325xi, doesn't start after oil change

It sounds like just a coincidence. I dont know what a GRR noise is supposed to mean. It either Cranks, No Crank, or it Cranks but does not Run. Just tow it to a qualified shop and find out what the problem is.

Ford Expedition 2001 that wont shift out of Park

Shift Interlock System
The shift interlock system prevents the shifting from PARK unless the brake pedal (2455) is depressed. The shift interlock system consists of a shift lock actuator (3Z719) mounted at the base of the steering column tube (3514). If the ignition switch (11572) is in the RUN position, the shift lock actuator is continually on unless the brake pedal is depressed.

Thier is also the shift lock actuator ! plus wiring . You have a short to ground on that circuit . Do you know how to Find a short ? videos on youtube .
None of the power windows work ? Check for broken wires inside the rubber boot from the body to drivers door !
Videos on youtube for testing power window circuits .
