Re: 2004 explore no crank
Just a question how did you jump start it did you connect the black lead to the engine for earth and the red lead to the battery positive or both to the battery? cause if you hooked both to the battery you may have stuffed your computer

whilst you are trying to jump start it check if you jump leads are good and powerful enough to sent the power to your battery,check if your battery terminals are clean enough to accept the power given,or is your battery not completely dead and even you are boosting has not the power to increase the needing one to start and is just for lights only?
That usually indicates low voltage at the starter. Could be a low or bad battery but more often is a result of poor connections of the battery cables where they connect to the battery, due to corrosion.
Disconnect the cables and clean the battery terminals and inside of the cables with a wire brush. Attempt to start. It may be necessary to 'jump' start from another battery the first time. Good luck! Dave
New batteries can be bad, if when you jump it do hook both leads to the battery or one to the battery and one to the engine. if it is the second , you might have a ground problem, follow the ground cable to the engine and make sure it tight and not corroded. if there is a lot of corrosion it needs to be cleaned good or replaced
OK. We need spark-fuel-and compression to start (and we need these at the correct time) U will need to spark tester or substitute to check spark. Spark should be blue and jump at least 1" in lenght. Check for "Noid" light at fuel injectors. One side of injector is 12volt power and the other side is grounded by pcm to "spray" fuel. Do you hear the fuel pump? Also scan for codes. Does it crank normally...sounds normal?
Appears to be a cranking isuue. Ford uses a starter relay an normally mounte under hood on left fender.. Battery + cable will ytake yo to it. Nake sure vehicle is in park or neutral. The relay has two large posts. momentarily jump the two and see if it cranks. If it does, Momentarily jump the post from the battery to the small post that has a push on wire connectorr. SShould crank that small wire is the one energize when you turn the key. Ck the wire for current if t he engine cranks in bith of your jumo tests. Good Luck -Ned
