How to diagnose vehicle will not start. Turn key and makes a click sound heard from dash or under hood.


Sounds like possible low battery. Could also be bad connection in starter switch, but test the battery first. Batteries do get old and don't hold charge. Check charging system, too.

2000 Ford Ranger wont start or turn over.


What is litre size of engine, automatic tranny or manual? Check the wiring circuits at the starter for voltage,use a test light, One circuit is hot all the time, the other circuit goes hot when starter relay is energized. Any testing at the starter make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set. The clicking noise may be the starter relay.

Sounds like a battery cable problem. Check the battery cable terminals for corrosion and tightness. If those are fine, have a load test done on the battery.
Here is some troubleshooting tips:

Battery terminal connections loose of corroded. Check the cable terminals at the battery; tighten cable clamp and/or clean off corrosion as necessary.
Battery discharged or faulty. It the cable ends are clean and tight on the battery posts, turn the key to the On position and switch on the headlights or windshield wipers. If they won't run, the battery is discharge.
Automatic transmission not engaged In park (PI or Neutral (N).
Broken, loose or disconnected wires In the staging circuit. Inspect all wires and connectors at the battery, starter solenoid and ignition switch (on steering column).
Starter motor pinion jammed in flywheel ring gear. II manual transmission, place transmission In gear and rack the vehicle to manually turn the engine. Remove starter and Inspect pinion and flywheel.
Starter solenoid faulty.
Starter motor faulty.
Ignition switch tautly.
Engine seized. Try lo turn to crankshaft with a large socket and breaker bar on the pulley bolt.

sounds like your starter is shorting..check your ground line and make sure no wires are crossing...you might want to also check the negative battery cable..if its not makeing a good connection to the battery or the block, youll get the same results and itll start burning out a wire..i have just recently fixed a problem similar to that on my truck.

98 ford windstar has clicking noise under dash and won't start


The clicking noise is most likly the starter solinoid cycling in and out. This is due to low battery voltage. charge the battery, then have the battery and charging system tested. Some auto supply stores will do this for free for you in the hopes of selling parts

good luck
