This could be a number of things, however, make sure that the battery is indeed good, as I have had batteries that have tested good, but once I put in a new battery my car would start immediately.

Have the alternator tested, check all connections at the battery, the starter, and the ground which will run to either the chassi (frame) or the engine block, or a bracket that mounts to the engine block.

Also make sure all relays and fuses related to the battery, alternator, starter and ignition are good.

If this has a distributor, make sure the coil wire is secure at both sides. This alone will prevent it from cranking and/or starting. If you have coil pack(s), have it (them) tested; this (these) will also have a modular under them, which cannot be tested, so if you look at it, if it looks white, bubbly and/or melted, it needs replaced.

I will let you know that coil packs and the modular are spendy, so only replace any packs that are deemed (tested) bad.

Last, if this is equipped with a distributor, check the cap and rotor. If the rotor is cracked, is white on the metal end tip, and the metal points in the cap are white, and/or warn (grooved) and have caked material on them, replace them. Check all plug wires for frayed, or melted plastic. If any are in such conditions, replace all, (they come as a set with a coil wire for distributed systems)

Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

2000 windstar with a 3.8 motor cranks slow then stops and no start .Acts like a dead battery battery is good what can it be?

Bad connection or corroded cables, possibly a bad starter. Sounds like something is drawing more amps than the battery is capable of supplying.

How to locate and chang neutral saftey switch on a 2003 ford expidition 5.4

The switch should be on the transmission at the shift lever. But it won't cause shifting problems. The cranking problem could be several other things.

Should the motor stay running when you unhook the battery on a 2000 ford expidition

Yes it will stay running as long as the altenator is working but thats not a good way to check the alt.It could send a voltage surge to the ecm or one of the other sensors and ruin the parts,that could get very expensive.

Have some heat in 2000 ford expidition but not

have your heater core pressure checked. it maybe clooged even though you had system flushed. additionally did you buy the correct thermostat? the computer is a sensitive thing and alot of other components are activated because of the temperature. the opening temp is 188-195 degrees. so you should have bought the 185 degree thermostat. i had same problem and bought the higher temp thermostat. i couldn't believe that such a small change would make a big difference. good luck.

I have the solenoid switch but i dont know how to change it. to a ford expidition 2000 5.4l

it will be located near the battery, follow the positive battery cable to the solenoid, disconnect the negative(black) battery cable first. remove the wires from the old solenoid, remove the bolts the hold the solenoid to the firewall or fender wall, install new solenoid into place then reconnect the wires. last reconnect negative battery cable & test repairs. make diagrams & mark wires as needed to avoid other problems

There are 2 relays or solenoids as they called on a starter, one is on the inside of the fender under the hood, follow the positive battery cable, the other is on the starter, both do the same thing, later years only have the one solenoid on the starter.
