Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2

1 Answer

My car won't start. The battery light was on for a little bit and now when I turn the key all the lights and everything come on, and so does the radio, but it won't start. I can jump start it, but once I turn it off it won't start again. The battery was brand new less than a year ago.

Most cars do this including the head lights , so the starter and ignition have less drain while starting. not sure if your model does this, If every thing is ok after starting nothing to worry about. If it wont start clean the battery terminals and check charging rate and battery.

Battery ok car wont start


You really need to be a bit more specific. Does the engine crank when you turn the key? If the engine does crank, does it sound like it is trying to start but won\'t? What kind of car is it? I don\'t think anyone is going to be able to help you with this particular problem without a bit more info...
All anyone can tell you at this point is, You battery seems to be okay...

2009 HHR won't start. Battery is good.


Is the security light on or blinking?If not then do you have power to the starter.You can check this with a test light.You should have power when you turn the key to start.The test light should light up.Should be the small wire.I believe it is purple in color.If the security light is on then you will have to get the codes to see what is causing the no start.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I would check your battery. I would also look for loose grounds. The clicking you hear is your fuel pump turning on. I would check your battery voltage and, have the battery load tested.

My Ford five hundred won...t turn over (crank)...the lights are on and when I turn the key I hear a ticking sound but it wont crank...what problem might I have


All indicates to a flat battery. If the lights work or the horn blows, that is no indication that the battery is still good. You need to use a hydrometer to test the electrolyte SG to check if the battery is at full charge.
