I hate to say this but you may have a seized engine.
I recommend you take it to a repair shop and have them look into this possibility.
If Battery is new , starter is new, assumption that cables and wiring are in good condition and all your getting is a click not even a crank ... then either they gave you a bad starter or high resistance or a seized engine one of the three.

I think that I ran my 16la new holland out of fuel so I put some more in. after loosening some bolts , i turn key and nothing . Could stater have went bad or a fuse ? Didn't crank a lot at All


Try this turn key to run do not try to start if you ran out of gas need to prime engine. Wait a couple!minute then try to start. Also check fuses. If starter went bad engine will not crank only hear a clicking noise

300 6 cylinder,, new starter, altanator, cylinoid, regulator,, timing set an reset to 4 degrees BTDC,, cold crank will run like sewing machine,, gets warm etween n and o on gage ,, wont cank drags


It sounds to me like you have something binding up or building resistance due to heat. I have had a similar thing happen to me with different cars. It turned out to be a battery cable that was fine when cold, but when it warmed up, it would sag and touch against an exhaust pipe just enough so that when I went to start the vehicle, it would arc to the exhaust and lose battery power that was normally used for starting it. Another time it turned out to be the negative cable not making good enough contact. The Ford 300, 6cyl. engine is a very good solid dependable unit, but ford has always had quite long battery cables and issues with the way the were grounded. I would check my cables and maybe replace them for good measure. Also be certain that your negative cable is very solidly grounded to the block of the engine.

My 1980 ford bronco wont start. replaced solenoid and starter and it dose the same thing. wont crank wen i disconnect and reconnect battery and i try to start it all it dose is it clicks and everything...


it sounds like the battery has a problem with it and needs replacing,as you try to start the truck it pulls all the voltage out of the battery(which is very little in the battery)causing the clicking sound you hear,make sure the battery cable connections are tight and clean,both the terminals and cable ends.it takes very little voltage to power up a radio or lights and they probably stop working shortly after they are turned on.

I just put a brand new battery in my 1996 dodge intrepid and the battery light wont go off.


if the battery light won't go of after replacing the battery you have a bigger issue, chances are the altanator is not putting out enough voltage. I would have that check as soon as possible, that way you don't die on the road. when the car is running the altanator should be putting out 14.6 volts at all times, if it is below 13 then the altanator should be replaced.

Ford 2002 focus


I've got an 87 CRX and had the same problem. It started by just dying on the road, but would start back up. The problem got worse until eventually it just cranked over and over but did not start. I went nuts checking all the obvious...coil, distributor, fuel pump. Somebody told me on some CRX models there is a fuel cutoff valve in the event of a wreck. I don't have one on mine but you may have one bad on yours. I eventually tracked my problem down to the ignition switch. It provide power to the starter for cranking, but as soon as the key was released, it lost electrical contact. Hope some of this helps. Good luck.
