Question about 1999 Ford Mustang Cobra

2 Answers

Had the battery out of a 1999 Mustang GT for two weeks, put it back in and engine cranks over , but no spark to plugs. No DTC's. Has adequate fuel to fuel rail, but no apparent pulse at the injectors. No security/theft issues either. Can you test the ignition module???... BTW; tried manually introducing fuel into the throttle body in the beginning, but that had no affect. Checked all the connectors as well.

If no pulse to injectors and no spark then its a security issue ,either the chip has fallen out of the key or it has a weekend boy racer alarm fitted ,something is stopping it from running and with no spark and no injector pulse then it has to be a factory immobilisor problem ,Has the key been in somewhere with a mobile phone or on top of cathrode ray type tv or computer screen ,this can wipe the chip in the key

Ignition OFF for 90 seconds, determine the current vehicle testing altitude. Ignition ON, observe the scan tool MAP Sensor parameter. Compare the parameter to the Altitude Versus Barometric Pressure table. The MAP sensor pressure parameter should be within the specified range indicated in the table.

1997 ford expedition will not crank,will turn but will not turn over


Remove a spark plug and connect its wire back on it and lay the plug against the engine...crank engine to see if you have spark.

If you have spark...put plug back in and move to fuel system.

Wait a minute...if your engine is not cranking or turning over...then check your battery and starter.
