Question about 2002 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

We have a 2002 Explorer w/4.0. It would not start, battery tested low. Put charger on and it started. Got a new battery. Today it did the same thing, turned off the auto headlights and it started. Where is the drain likely to be?

Your battery may have a dead cell, take it out and test it, use a charger and a volt meter, after the charge if the volts are still low then replace it, or you could take it to a parts store and have them test for the dead cell.

MY 1994 EXPLORER WAS SITTING AND HADN"T BEEN


remove battery and have it tested a your local auto parts store. Most auto parts stores like autozone or advance auto will test it for free. batterys will loose charge if they are old and have been sitting around for a period of time. If you have battery charger, set it up and put a low charge on it for 20 mins to a half hour. then try to start it again. If the battery is in good shape, check the cables to starter and ground. If that doesn't help you might have to remove the starter and have it tested.

My Jeep won't start, was working fine earlier today. Won't turn over just a clackety clack sound, is it the starter?


Well to start with, it does sound like the starter is on the way out, best to test, give it a push and try to start in 2nd gear if starting ok the starter is gone, needs changing, could be a low battery as well check the voltage output on it, could put jumper leads on, if starting it is battery, if not it's starter.

The first question for you is, What is the charging output for the altenator at idle?? If less than 12.3 volts, replace altenator. Typically, the altenator gets tested at 2500-3000 rpm on a bench tester. Your problem may be in the low rpm output range.

Engine will not start. Get clicking noise like a bad battery.


If lights and radio worked, LOW load off the battery is OK, but trying to start (400Amp draw) isn't. My bet is that your Battery connectors are loose. Dump a COKE slowly on eaxh to rremove all the Green crystalline stuff (do it slowwwwww) then remove (Negative (-) side first) and clean up the insides with a piece of sandpaper. Put them back on (Positive (+) first) and tighten good (these are typically LEAD, so easy to ruin)
Try again!
