Park the car inside one night, and outside the next (in the same weather). Check the car engine for dew / condensation the next mornings.

It seems on very cold mornings my 2003 Ford Escape does not want to start. So far this winter there have 4 instances when the vehicle would not start. In all cases, all I needed was a jump from someone...


Cold temperatures cause batteries to lose a great deal of current flow. Batteries use chemical reactions to create electric charge. The chemical reactions simply move slower at low temperatures. So, there really is just a minor problem here. I think if you buy a 2amp trickle charger and let it charge your battery at night before a cold morning start you'll find everything satisfactory. the charger will gently warm up and charge the battery. In the morning, the battery will be topped up and ready for a high-performance-required cold start. The charger is much less expensive than a new battery. But if your battery is more than 3 years old, you may consider getting a new one as yours has only about 25% of its life left.

2004 Ford Taurus, problem started last night. Drove to store, came home & parked. Tried to restart to park closer to curb and would not start. Engine did not turn over. Got low oil pressure message,...


Well your vehicle is indicating a problem, did you or your husband check the oil quantity? If it is low replenish the quantity. Also your battery seems to be failing, when you park it for a long time it will gain a little bit of power, thus when you come outside in the morning it would be better off then if you turned off the car and ran into the gas station to refuel and tried to take off. This shouldn't be a problem if your alternator is working properly and charging the vehicle while you drive. You may want to have your husband remove it and bench test it at a Checkers/Autozone or a local auto parts facility.

2001 expedition 5.4l. wont crank


get a multimeter and test battery output, if more than 13v when you turn key to crank position if below then battery may be faulty and not holding charge, check starter relay and fuse, if ok also check for any parasitic draw from any accesary that might draw down battery when engine not running

My 2000 ford ranger and something draining battery


bad alternator possible or bad battery..even though its new that battery can be bad. I would take a volt meter and with the engine running check the volts of the battery..If the volts are 12 you need to replace alternator, if volts are 14 you need to check the battery. to check the battery hold the volt meter to the battery and have someone start the car..while the starter is cranking battery volts should not drop below 10volts.if they do your battery is bad.
