Check the ground cable and make sure everything is tight. A bad ground will do that.

Take vehicle to Autozone or Advane Auto and have the charging system checked for free. Batteries have 2 capacities. CA, cranking amps, warm weather and CCA, cold cranking amps, cold weather. Suspect new battery required.

My car would not start during cold weather, I replaced battery and starter, but did not fix problem. I found that the problem is the ignition switch, I could get it to work by banging around the ignition switch and holding the key in the start position.

My 97 lincoln town car won't start. it's cold out. would taking the battery inside be a good idea to warm it up?


Your battery is usually challenged in cold weather, you are right...to much trouble to remove to take in to warm up...Do you have a battery charger? My suggestion would be to jump start your Lincoln with another car battery...this will assure that your battery is not further damaged by being under charged in cold weather...drive to assure charging system ie alternator is working...taking the battery inside to warm will help to save your battery if it is just low on charge...taking inside will not ncecessarily re-charge your battery...in the summer, sometimes leaving hood up with sun on battery will slightly re-charge a low battery...:)

It hesitate to start up in cold weather i have to give a pump of


There is a cold start valve srpay extra fuel at the start to assist the start in the cold weather. If it is not open during the start then this is why there is a problem. This valve is operated by an electric coil. Even checking the resistance reading, but the valve is still not opening due to being stuck. Power is only coming to the valve during the start and the temperature is cold reported by the coolant temperature sensor . If the coolant temperature sensor is bad reporting warm temperature then the valve will not open. The temp sensor is less expensive than the valve, so it is an economical way to tackle the sensor first. Good luck.

Cold weather starting 2000 Ford Ranger


I would check the Air Charge Sensor. This sensor measures the temp of the air charge going into the fuel injection system, when you truck is cold it requires more fuel and less air, if this sensor has gone bad it would lean out your fuel mixture as if the vehicle was already warm.
