The first things I would check would be: listen to the fuel tank while a friend turns the key to the on position, you don;t have to try to start it. If you don't hear a hum coming from the tank, something is keeping your fuel pump from running. If that is the problem check all of the fuses and relays related to the fuel pump. If that is not the problem, have some one pull one of the the spark plug wires off and stick a spark plug in it. Turn the engine over,(please stay away from the plug, it can shock the badly) if the plug does not spark, something is wrong with the ignition system.

The car will run with a new battery for a little while even if the alternater is bad, so I would look at fuel problem.

Look for something draining the battery overnight such as a light or some accessory that should turn off after a delay. One of our Ford experts may be able to pinpoint the problem with your Expedition

Our 2007 odyssey the battery died after only one year. Bought new one now four days later car won't start again. We left no lights on or radio, not even the dvd player. What's wrong with this...


Battery might have died cause the altinator is not charging 14+V Please charge the battery, donot boost the dead battery. After charging the battery check the altinator output.

Will start and run fo a short distance and cut off. I had the battery checked and charged and it tested ok. could it be the alternater?


Could be..... the batery is just used for starting, once the engine is running it pulls electric power from the altinator, if the altinator which also charges the batery, is not working power is pulled from the battery, and when the battery goes dead, the car does too. When the Car turns off, do you then need to jump it to start it? if so you could be pretty convinced that the altinator is the issue

Battery voltage/rough idle


you need to have the altinator checked while under a load. if its checked with no load on it then it will test ok. in other words you have a altinator that is going bad.
