Hello. Since it is turning over, you know the battery and the starter are ok. The next place to consider is the fuel filter and the fuel pump. Get a can of starter fluid and a friend. Remove the air filter cover and have the friend squirt a couple of squirts of starter fluid into the air intake [in the center of where the air filter is. If the car starts and runs until the starter fluid is used up you can be pretty sure the fuel filter is clogged or the fuel pump is shot. Start with replacing the fuel filter, it is much less expensive. Regards, Joe

Possible dead spot on starter. Try rapping on the starter with a piece of wood.

When trying to start my Ford Explorer 2003 this morning, it cranked but did not start. Does this mean that I have to get a new starter motor or starter wires? We only changed the battery 9 months ago....


If the motor cranks than your battery and starter motor is ok. It sound like a fuel problem, does it do it on when cold, does it start ok once it has started and it has warmed up, if your vehicle is fuel injected than look into the cold start or even have your injectors serviced.

A few things I can think of are the starting circuit of the ignition switch, the neutral saftey switch, the starter solenoid, a fusible link, and a bad connection.

It might be your anti-theft alarm system. When the car doesn't start, is there a ticking sound inside the car? If so, hit the unlock button a few times on your keyless entry remote, until the ticking stops, then try to start the car. Hopefully this helps.

2007 FORD SPORTS TRAC BATTERY KEEPS DYING


180 milli-amps is way to much draw,ford's limit is 50 milli-amps but typically we usually only see around 20-30. Now when you say fuse 2 is that in the under-hood fuse panel or the interior fuse panel? And if this vehicle is a 2007 it may still be under factory warranty which was 36 months or 36000 miles providing that the add on automatic starter is not causing your draw.Which in that case the people who installed it should be responsible for that.

Probably low oil pressure in the transmission or worn clutches.

2004 Ford explorer will not start


Sounds like connections or cables. They may appear to look good but if they are aftermarket terminal ends they get corrosion under the bolt down clamp that holds the wires in. If they are factory cables that are molded on to the ends of the wires the same thing can happen. The easiest and cheapest thing to try is to put aftermarket terminal ends on the cables. Make sure you wirebrush the ends of the cables after you strip them and tighten them evenly and securely. Also clean the battery side thoroughly. If this doesn't work check the starter relay. Its the first place the red cable bolts to after the battery. Check the connections and try putting a jumper wire between the battery positive cable and the small terminal marked with an "S". One of these solutions should take care of this.
