Question about 1997 Ford Aspire

1 Answer

1995 Ford Aspire will not start. Battery stated going low had to jump it on a few occasions. Started going to work one day and the car shut off a mile out. Lots of antifreeze coming from water pump area when it died. I replaced the distributor and it stated right up. Still leaking H20 however so cut off car. Replaced the waterpump the next day and tried to start again but will now fire up. I'm at my wits end here.

Try checking your Inertia switch in the rear cargo area. It is on the Drivers side rear strut tower. There is an access plug and you need to push down on a reset button. Sometimes when you jar the car or disconnect the Battery this part disconnects.

When you worked on the water pump, did you disconnect the wire going to the Distributor? Also undo the cap and wipe it clean. With steam and spray, the cap can get condensation beneath it and short out. You may want to use some WD40 spray and see if that helps.

Check for a Relay box under the hood. The ignition sometimes has a relay and the spray could have shorted it. WD40 may disperse the water. Good luck on this and I hope my solutions are very helpful for you.

sounds like the transmission is gone. If they bought it from a dealership then you should at least have a 30 day warranty. If it was bought from a private owner, depending on the state, it could be covered by the lemon law. Most states have a lemon law on used automobiles. Good luck. P.S. sounds like the battery could be dead if you have to keep jump starting it.

No start just one click in 1995 buick lesabre


First-how old is the battery?

They can last 4 years or 9

You test the battery when fully charged for voltage,
then load test it

New battery or old one- you move on to test the starter

No parts every go into a car until you know how to test
them & they fail a test

So a Repair Shop is your most logical choice

Factory alarm started acting up a few days ago, now car won't start. only hear single click noise. managed to jump started it once


The first thing i would do is to have the battery tested, most problems occur due to a weak battery so i would start by having the battery tested first you may have a low weak battery thats why you were able to jump start it . good day.

Battery needle jumps normal to low (power draw) then all normal


Your voltage regulator is sticking a little.
I'm not sure but I think it is built into the alternator on these fords which means you may need to start thinking about a new one (either voltage regulator or alternator depending.)

Chevy lumina 1995 van


I have a 96 Chevy Lumina with an electric sliding side door. A few weeks ago we started having problems with it. I went to work and when I got ready to leave it would not start. I had to have it jumped. Got home and let it set over the Thanksgiving weekend. Went to start it the Mon/Tues after and nothing. Let it set another week and still nothing. We jumped it again and it took 15 minutes to get enough of a charge in the battery to get it started. Took it to a battery store and they checked the battery and said that was the problem. We replaced the battery (it wasn't that old) and went home. A few days later it wouldn't start again. Could this problem have anything to do with the electric slinding door? if so, any suggetions on how to fix it?

Lost all electrical car died wont start


Will it start when you give it a jump or install a good battery? If it does the problem is your alternator. What most likely happened is the alternator quit working while you were driving and the car was relying on the battery directly to keep it going in which the battery completely lost power and shut the car off.
