If car wont start and clicking sound is heard this is a battery related or starter related, if your car battery is in good condition (which I think it was) then the problem is your starter, have it check to confirm.

My Van Is not cranking We thought it was the battery but found out that the battery is good. the horn and radio and stuff works but it will not evev try to crank


Are you getting a clicking noise at all? If not, I'd try the starter soleniod. (this is usually the problem - you can take the starter to an advanced auto and they can check it for you to be sure).

Otherwise it's the ignition (where you put your keys in). Sometimes these stop sending the 'start' signal.

check the connection to your starter.you might not have enough current going to you starter allowing it to turn over or your battery may be low.

96 ford explorer no power no crank no anything


Sounds like a connection problem/error. When you replaced the starter solenoid, do you remember how many wires you disconnected and reconnected?

Was there any indication ( sparks, etc) of accidentally causing a short when you replaced the solenoid?

Your initial problem of no start but hearing the click sound is almost a sure fire indication that the starter is NG. If the solenoid clicks, that means that it is applying 12 volts to the starter.

hope this helps Good luck Loringh
