I do not know if it will help you now, but the problem that I had and I know someone else had with these same symptoms, no crank, but radio, headlights work, etc.

There is a wire cluster between the battery and the steering wheel. The positive wire (red) corroded from the inside out. You may not be able to see it without cutting the outer shell of this harness, but you will see the green oxidized copper powder where the problem is. What I did was cut out this length of wire and replace. You will find that there are other wires that will start corroding also.

Hope this helps!

What is causing my starter to engage while the motor is running and won't quit until you unhook the battery?


Ouch! Sounds like the Bendix on the starter motor could have been damaged, or possibly the starter relay. I'd check the relay first. With ignition and engine off. pull the small terminal on the relay terminal Labeled "S" for start. It is next to the Battery terminal. (See enlarged pix on the link below.) Next, try to start the engine. It should not even try. Then, reconnect the starter wire to the relay. Have a friend start the engine and then pull the wire from the "S" terminal. If pulling the wire kills he engine, the you probably have a bad ignition switch. If the starter motor is still engaged with engine running, then I'd suspect a stuck relay or stuck Bendix. Since the relay is the cheaper component of the two (10 to 25 bucks), I'd change the relay. If the relay doesn't remedy the situation, It's time to replace the starter/Bandix.

Car wont start but batterys good


A fully charged battery does not mean that its amperage output is adequate, have it tested at an auto parts store. While your problem could be battery, wiring, key switch, solenoid, starter or maybe really cold outside, best to start with simplest first, clean the battery terminals and cable connectors with a terminal brush tool and install anti-corrosion impregnated felt rings on each terminal. With the battery terminals disconnected, also unbolt and clean the solenoid and starter terminals too and re-tighten. Then find the "ground" connections from the negative battery cable to the metal chassis and from the engine to the chassis, unbolt, clean, sand clean each if necessary and reinstall. If when using a voltmeter there is any reading between the engine block and the negative terminal of the battery, installing an extra ground cable directly between the engine block and the negative battery terminal connector. When reinstalling battery terminals, install positive terminal first, place socket slightly larger than battery terminal on top of it and lightly tap to fully seat the cable connector on the battery terminal before tightening. Tighten snug enough that cable connector does not move on the battery terminal, do not over tighten. Beware of battery acid and accumulated corrosion, wear eye protection and protective gloves too and be aware that battery acid eats holes in clothing and cloth gloves. If problem persists, a DC voltmeter most useful to determine if when key turned to start, there is voltage applied to the solenoid. If yes, then to check if solenoid operates upon key turn to "start" applying voltage through solenoid to starter. If yes, and if battery amperage output tested "ok" then starter may need to be replaced.

Firebird won't start and charge disappeared


When you hooked the battery charger up to the battery how many amps was it putting into the battery?

It wont start


Do you mean it will crank but not run? Or is it a no crank, no start? If it is indeed the latter, you need to get battery charged up? Maybe the dome light was left on. Use a battery charger to charge it up and the engine should crank over when you turn the key switch. Hope this helps....Mike

The engine was running. i turned it off to get something. came back and it wont start. All lights come on bright , engine makes a single loud click and wont turn over.


This sounds like a bad starter or bad battery connections, make sure the battery is charged, and when you crank the motor make sure the lights dont go out, turn them on and have someone watch to see if they dim out if they stay bright then starter is bad .

'98 Wrangler, cleaned battery cables, flashers blink won't start


From your post, it seems that you may have only cleaned the outside of the terminals. The engine was cranking... this tells me that 'though cleaning the terminals is a good maintenence item, you did not have a problem there. Remove the cables and clean the inside of the wire terminals and the battery contacts. This will put you back where it would crank, but not start. (make sure the battery is fully charged while you are there)
After you can crank the engine, check for spark at plug wires, fuel supply etc. Problems there will begin to tell you where to proceed!
Good luck!

WON'T STAY TURNED OVER


have you checked for a fuel cut off switch? I was rearended last year and had the same issue right afterward and it was b/c the fuel cut off switch had kicked in and I had to 'unclick' it - it was located in the trunk of my crown vic - not sure where it may be in the Winstar - in the back somewhere.
