Question about 2005 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

Dead I drove my car home from work today without any problem at all.  Everything worked properly, no warning lights, no funny sounds, perfect ride.  I parked in the garage, as always and about an hour later got back in and it is completely dead.  Will not turn over, no lights will come on, nothing at all happens.  What do I do?  My husband is trying to get the battery out to take it and have it checked.  Any other suggestions or thoughts?!?  Thanks in advance!

Battery is too low to turn the engine over. Get it jumped and drive it to AutoZone. They will run a free diagnostic and tell you whether it's the battery or the alternator.

I would first clean the battery post and clamps, as a bad connection can cause a vehicle to act like the battery is dead, you can either buy battery terminal cleaner( it comes in a spray can) or you can use coke and a wire brush. Hope this helped Tim

Sounds like the ground wire for the battery is not making clean contact. Trace that wire and clean both ends and the area it connects to the engine block. Good luck!

It might leave you stranded. Because without the alternator. which I think is your problem your battery will run down in a very short time. Even if you had a new battery.Check the belt first as Toyota Ed suggested. If it's good, and not broken. Replace the alternator and if you have to, the battery also. One could affect the other.
