Question about 1987 Ford Tempo
Hi I have an 87 Topaz and it will not hold a charge. I have used a test light in between the battery post and the negative lead and it flashes on then stays off....the previous owner had the alt. replaced and the battery as well. Do you have any ideas?? Oh and when I try to start it it tries to turn over and then it just clicks, tried smacking the starter with a wrench but still no go.......Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Yes the terminals are clean and they are solid with a good connection as well.
