Well, power to lights and windows is not really an indication that there is enough power for the starter. However, the fact that jumping it doesn't start the engine either, tells me that the starter may have gone bad, or is on a bad spot.

How much amperage is drawn when trying to start? close to zero or over 125 amps while the starter doesn't turn is abnormal and requires a new starter.

Normally, the starter should draw about 75 to 125 Amps and turn vigorously.

The only other thing I could think of is maybe there's a problem with the security system that cuts off electricity to the starter.

Good luck on this repair.

Battery died, changed battery and now engine wont crank.


Look for a blown starter fuse or fusible link in your underhood block. Also look for what made it blow.

Car wont start but the lights, radio and everything battery operated comes on but it just makes a click noise when trying to start engine


If you can hear a click (quite loud) from the engine compartment, but the starter won't crank, this also could be caused by discharged battery. Battery problems - Discharged or dead battery is one of the possible reasons for a car not to start. Very common is the situation when we forget to turn the lights off overnight (the dome light, for example), which causes the battery to drain. In this case when attempting to start a car, all you will probably hear will be a clicking noise - there won't be enough power to turn the starter. Here is the simple way to check if the battery is discharged: Turn the ignition on. With the engine off, turn the windshield wipers on. If they move way too slow, much slower than usual, the battery is probably discharged. Also look at the dashboard lights - if they appear very dim, the battery is probably discharged.
If the battery is relatively new, it can be recharged. All you need to do is to boost your car and let the engine run for a while to charge the battery.

However if your battery is more than three-four years old, you will probably need to buy a new one. Sometimes, an old battery may even die with no apparent reason, even if the day before it was OK.

If the battery is OK, the starter solenoid, starter cables or the starter motor itself could be a problem.

Check it and tell us news.

Bought a new battery for the 2005 Ford 500. Now with the new battery, the engine and trans lights come on.


Probably when the old battery died as you attempted to start the system voltage went so low it generated random fault codes, you need to locate a code reader and have them read and reset.
