Make sure there is no corrosion on the battery cables and alternator connection. Make sure they are properly grounded. Also does the starter turn at all when you turn the ignition? Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,

    Hi,
    When you start getting into electrical/ground issues it can get very complicated. I suggest using a multimeter and testing main starter wire for 12v and solenoid wire for 12v when cranking the engine. Then go from there. Is the clicking your starter clicking or? There will definitely be troubleshooting involved to solve this problem.
    Thank you,
    Lee

    Hi,
    Also how old is the battery. That is first thing you will want to check.
    thank you,

Interior display wont turn off when keys are not in ignition and the car is locked up, so at night the display jus makes the inside of the car light up, is this normal or is it meant to shut off too?


make sure your interior light switch isn;t turned all the way up. this will leave your lights on all the time. if you look in your owners manual to see the switch location. please leave comment.

Turn ignition key and motor starts up, next day turn ignition key and motor just turns over and wont start. could it be anti theft problem its a 2002 f150 4 wheel drive with 4.6 liter


This could be caused by either a faulty Crank Shaft Position Sensor or the anti-theft system. Try put key in, turn to ON position for EXACTLY 10 minutes, As SOON as anti-theft light shuts off or stops flashing, then IMMEDIATELY start the engine.

Security light flash no security system on truck


sometimes turning the ignition on 3 times quickly without starting will reset the computer. If the van has power locks and keyless entry then try using only the keyless entry. Sometimes your car wont have a alarm but an anti theft device which will not allow it to start if it goes off or something triggers it.

2001 Ford Focus stopped running while i was driving and wont start. Makes a churning sound but no power is going to engine. I changed the ignition coil, still wont turn on. Any suggestions?


Can you explain more so I can help. What do you mean still wont turn on, engines doesn't start or starter motor doesn't turn. Have u taken out a spark plug and connected it to the cable put the end of the spark plug to a ground and make someone turn on the engine for a few seconds you should see some blue sparks. Carefully use gloves. If no sparks, spark plug is bad next thing to check instead of putting the spark plug in the cable put Philips screwdirver put the screwdriver near a ground not touching about one inch make someone turn the engine for a couple of second you should see the spark jumping from the screwdriver to the ground, If there are no sparks ignition coil or spark plug cables are not good. But u say u changed ignition coil so maybe your cables are not good. There is a connector near the ignition coil disconnect it and turn ignition switch on measure the voltage you should have in between 12vdc + or - .5 vdc if no voltage present there is a blown fuse, Check for it
