Question about 1996 Ford Contour

1 Answer

Engine cranks strongly, but engine won't turn over. Apparantly there's power getting from the battery to the fuse box in engine compartment, but not from there to the rest of the engine.

My 2003 Denali won't start I turn the key and just get a fast clicking noise good battery new starter and all power works


Where's the clicking noise coming from ? Under the dash , under the hood in the engine compartment ? Do starter circuit voltage drop test ! When the key is in start position is there constant B+ voltage at the 10 amp crank fuse in the under hood fuse box ? This is an input to the PCM - engine computer to energize the starter relay ! Starter Voltage Drop The battery is good , starter is new ,what about the cables ? watch this video on testing starter circuit !

After replacing the altenator, door locks, a/c ,interior lights ,etc. dont work. what gives?


Probably nothing to do with the alternater. How is your battery? Does the engine turn over? What does work? Need a little more info.

Car won't crank


No parts are ever replaced to resolve any vehicle issues

You have to proper test any vehicle systems that apear
to have a problem

Once all the answers are present, only then do parts get
installed if necessary

Things such as fuses & relays only fail here on these web site
blogs, for the most parts,way too much silly talk about nothing

Need to have the car at a repair shop that actually can diagnose
something

From what I see on this site from people asking questions,
that appears to be an issue also,finding a half decent shop
these days

well if you have a dvom/voltmeter check the power at the starter terminals. the main terminal should have power all the time the key wire should have power only when the key is turned to crank engine. if you have power at both then i would start looking at grounds

My hhr will not turn off, where is the battery so i can disconnect it


Unplugging the battery won't shut it down I don't think.

Get into your fuse box under the dash or in the engine compartment and pull the fuse for the fuel pump.

Look in your owner manual for the 3 fuse box locations. It is similar to our Lincoln LS.

New batrery, no spark, no fuel. pulled front bank of plugs not sign of fuel or hear from spark. Just replaced a top coolant hose that was leaking. Engine turns over strong.


try swapping your PCM power relay with another relay in the relay box (engine compartment by the battery).
The PCM relay powers the fuel and ignition systems, as well as the PCM. Let me know if this doesn't work or you have more questions.

The battery will not charge and the dash instrument cluster will not work. we have checked all the fuses and none of them are blown. its a 2005 ford f550


It sounds like you have a fuseable link that has melted... Check down by the starter... There may be another connector and main power terminal in the left side of the engine compartment but remember when you look inside the engine compartment it will be on your right....
