Question about 1997 Ford Probe
I installed a new trans. had to remove motor from vehicle to do so. Upon installation, when I turn the key the starter engages, and engine does not turn over. My battery is charged. when not starting, bat is at 12.2 volts. when it tries to start, bat goes to 2 volts. I can hear the starter engage on the flywheel, but no rotation. I can rotate the engine using a socket on the front pulley. This car has an auto trans. I have tried to shift into neutral, but same issue occurs.
Change battery shouldn"T drop to 2 volts bad battery

Double check all of your ground wires from the battery to the engine and body. Also have the battery checked. Even if the starter was bad, the voltage while cranking should not drop down to 2 volts.
