Start by checking all your fuses. also, where did you hook direct power to for the stereo? That could be a problem.

2003 ford explorer will click and not start. a few days later it started.we cannot trust it tto start. a mechanic says it could be a loose wire to the starter or we need a new starter. please advise.

First, try a new battery or charge a known good battery up and install. Make sure the connections at the battery and the starter are shiny and clean when removed. Do an amperage draw test to see how many amps it draws when trying to start (click).

If the amperage draw is 80 to 120 Amps and it doesn't turn over vigorously, the starter is bad, but the connection is good.

If the amperage draw is only 1 or 2 amps and it doesn't turn over, then the soenoid on the starter is bad, but you would change the starter and solenoid together as a unit to repair.

Good luck on this repair.

99 Explorer 4.0 Won't start... the last few days that it did run, I would have to turn it over a few times and usually the 3rd time it would start. Just replaced the battery, but guage still reads low....

Check the connections to the starter, 90 percent of the time when testing batteries and starters here in WI the issue it the wires at the starter. Don't just look at them, either. Pull the big one off and clean it really well, and the small one if it looks bad. Also check the ground wire where it bolts to the motor from the battery, if the latter does not fix it. You have a bad connection, the old battery was probably still good-but don't take that as saying to take the new one back, you are better safe than sorry, I would keep the new one anyway-and the old for a spare.

2001 Ford Explorer Sport wont start

Even though I bought the vehicle new, there was an aftermarket security system installed. The system had a bad diode, so i removed the system and reconnected the factory wires.

03 explorer sport starter

HI, please refer to the guide below for thorough instruction on replacing your starter.

Remove the Malfunctioning Starter Step1 Park your Ford Explorer on a level surface, activate the emergency brake and place blocks behind the back tires for safety. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a terminal puller. Raise the front end of the car with a jack for easier access to the starter. Step2 Grasp the plastic shell of the hard-shell connector at the S-terminal and pull straight off, without pulling the wire. If damage occurs, replace those items as well. Step3 Detach all wires connected to the starter, including the ground wire on the starter motor bolt stud, starter cable and the solenoid push-on connector. Some Ford Explorer starter motors have a self-threading bolt holding the starter cable in place. Step4 Remove the starter mounting bolts, starting with the upper bolt, and place them in the jar for safe keeping until later. Then remove the malfunctioning starter from the engine. Step5 Take your malfunctioning starter to the parts store with you. Aftermarket distributors remanufacture most of the starters they sell, so you can likely obtain a partial credit toward your new starter by exchanging your old one. Be sure that you take care not to damage the starter in transit, because the better condition it is in, the more you can get for it. Step6 Purchase a replacement starter that has the same or higher cranking capacity (power rating) as the original starter in your Ford Explorer. Also, match the bolt patterns, drive gears and electrical connections. Your owner's manual may list specifications or the auto parts technician will help you determine them. Download a free owner's manual at Ford Fleet. Install the New Starter Step1 Position the new starter in the correct location and install with the mounting bolts. Torque the mounting bolts between 15 to19 foot pounds (21 to 27 Nm). Step2 Push the solenoid connector straight on to the starter and listen for a click to be certain of proper installation. Step3 Attach starter cable nut to the B-terminal of the solenoid. Tighten the nut between 80 to 123 inch pounds (9 to 14 Nm). Reconnect the additional starter wiring and replace the red safety cap. Step4 Lower the vehicle to the ground and reconnect the negative battery cable. Disconnecting the battery cable may cause the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to lose information. After testing to make sure the vehicle starts, drive at least ten miles for the PCM to relearn its adaptive strategies.

Please rate and god bless.

1998 explorer intermintant start. New starter. alternator is 6 months old (suppose to be liftime, I wonder if the problem IS the ALT.) When it decides to start. The alt. only chargers at 13.6 volts. But...

intermittant start sounds like starter relay, 13.6-14.4 is still charging anything above 12.0 is charging, so that does not sound bad to me. I have a 99 F150 and have found all my problems were sticky relays

2003 Ford Explorer CD Player (Single to 6 disc)

You will have to go to Best Buy, or whatever your nearest audio installation place is, and request wiring harnesses for the type of radio you are putting in, and also the type of vehicle, I believe you can put any aftermarket stereo in any vehicle, as long as it fits in the dashboard. Hope it helps.
