Question about 1999 Ford Expedition

1 Answer

Clicking I just replaced my alternator. I got a jump and it cranked ...but after i let it run for 15 minutes....i cut the car off and it wouldn't start....just clicking. Could it be the battery is dead or could it be a starter problem? Radio was previously not working....now everything powered is running properly....it just won't turn over.

This sounds to me like a sticking starter. locate it and try giving it a tap with a spanner but dont hit it to hard and if this does the job i would recomend a new starter.

My 2007 dodge charger didn't crank so I jumped it


A battery from 07 is still decently new to be that bad, but I would check the alternator first, just get the car running and unhook the positive cable from the battery, if the car dies the alternator is bad.

It is most likely the alternator. You will need to check it and see if it needs replaced. All you need to do is hook up an electrical mulimeter while the car is running. Black wire to negative, red to positive and see how many volts you get. You should get between 13 and 15. Any lower and you need to check the alternator.

I brought a new battery and drove it for a couple of days and then it just cut off while driving got a jump and when i parked it it wouldn't start


well it sounds like the alternator is not charging properly. car off at battery there should be at least 12.6 volts. jump start car, when running if alternator is good battery voltage should be 14.2 to 14.6 good-day !!

The light work on the jeep the horn works, I put the vechicle in park turn the key and it wont start, The the key is turn it make a clicking sound


this sounds like a low battery problem ... the horn and lights do not take much energy to turn on, but starting the engine takes a lot of power. Try jumping the Jeep with another car, or a battery jump pack (available at any auto-parts store). If the engine kicks over and starts, then leave your Jeep running in park for about 15 minutes. After 15 minutes of running, turn the Jeep off and then try to start it again with no jump -- if it starts, you had a low battery, but the issue is probably solved (running the engine recharges the battery). If, after you have had the car running for 15 minutes and turn it off, it does not start on its own, you probably need a new battery (and you should have your electrical system checked as you might have a bad alternator that is not charging your battery). Sears Auto Canter has a great piece of equipment that can test your battery, and your entire electrical system (including the alternator) in just a few minutes. I recommend that you take your Jeep to a Sears Auto Center and have it checked, whether or not the jump worked because their system can make sure that there is not a slow drain on the battery (due to a loose connection or something like that) which would cause you to have the same problem again.

Had battery, alternator, starter checked @ 1st of August, showed bad battery-or battery was going bad. should have replaced then, but didn't. Last few days, it seems like it was not getting enough power on...


The battery is the last place I'd look. You should type "would not start" if you mean that it cranks but doesn't start. Your message is a bit confusing. An intermittent problem such as this is usually electrical though. Cranking is the noise it makes when the starter actually turns. If it cranks at times and then refuses to at others, it would probably break down to being the starter itself or the starter solenoid. If the engine starts (to a run) at times and then not at others, then you would need to steer toward problems with fuel (or no fuel pressure, or lack of), ignition (wires, coil, or distributor). If you are hoping it is something simple (and want to avoid a trip to a mechanic), maybe someone familiar with this vehicle will post a solution relating to it.

Battary light on , engine cut off car won't crank


sounds like it's your alternator, your alternator charges your battery and runs car once it is started. if you have a bad alternator your battery light will come on, and shortly after your vehicle will die, unable to restart without a jump. I would take your battery to autozone or an auto shop to have your battery and alternator tested.
