It's the battery. Hence why it starts when you charge or jump it. Snag a new battery and don't forget to bring your old one to avoid a core charge.

I have a 03 Expedition that on the first time you try to start it will turn over but will not fire. When you turn it to the off position and try to start it again it doesn't turn over and says nothing

I'd be looking at the condition of the battery first.

Have you tried using jumpers to see if you can get it started?

Tried disconnecting the battery and leaving it on a charger overnight? Cleaned the terminals and battery posts, cable connections?

Lets try that and then see what happens.

Battery not getting charged although the alterator is putting out.truck will run but kills battery after its been charged with a is my email.

Does it die while running? Check the voltage at the battery with the truck running to see if it is getting the same voltage that the alternator is putting out. Will it not start after sitting for a bit? It could just be a bad battery not taking a charge because the lead plates or the terminal inside the battery is broken. You may also have a drain on the battery that is discharging it. You can check for a drain by disconnecting the negative cable and hooking a test light in line between th negative battery terminal and the cable. If the test light lights up bright, there is a drain and you can start pulling fuses one at a time to see what kills the light.

Describe your 99 ford expedition the battery light turns off and on and then the battery started and loss charge. The truck battery was so lo that the lights turned off. Now the truck wont start its dead.

Possible that the alternator is faulty , the charging section of the voltage regulator charger is faulty, finally there is some heavy shorting in the circuit or a possible poor ground connection from the battery to the chassis.
You will need to charge the battery and recheck once again to confirm , check the charging voltage and check the drain.

My 06 ford expedition won't turnover. the battery appears fine. it initially had a hard time turning over in the cold, but now it won't turnover at all. it'll start if someone gives me a jump, but after a...

If you have a Battery charger, disconnect the Neg cable of the battery from the SUV and charge the battery overnight. When you get the SUV running, take it to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan. Also ask them to do a Starter draw test and to analyze your charging system and Battery.

The Ford antitheft systems are really sensitive to low power. While your vehicle has a 12 Volt system, a fully charged battery will have 13.2 to 13.4 Volts in it. A drop of 10% in battery performance will drop the charge to 12 Volts or less. This is enough to make the anti-theft lock out the Starter.

I have seen Charging systems automatically turn off once a jumper cable is removed. You can see it on the dash gauges where the Alternator is working and remove the jumper and after several minutes a perfectly good Alternator stops working while you are driving. Then install a battery with a 13.2 Volt charge and everything starts working perfectly from then on.

I mention this because you may have felt the Battery was charging after the jump and really it was not. You have to watch the Volt meter in your dash while you drive, there will be no warning lights.

I hope I have been helpful with my solution and that you will get a scan on your SUV.

98silverado 1500 does not want to start in the am

it sounds like you need to replace your battery.jumping it to get it started will charge the battery especially if you are driving it around and will hold charge for a bit.but if truck is sitting all night then battery is just draining

1991 ford aerostar will start with jump but not off new battery, new starter, solenoid, cables & Neutral SAfety switch. Could my new battery have a bad cell?

Was it charged before putting it in service? Check the battery voltage at the posts with a voltmeter while someone tries to start the engine. If the voltage falls quite a bit (from 12.6 volts), put it on a slow charger over-night. A good battery will read 12.6 volts at rest and 13.5 to 14.5 volts with the engine running (and a good alternator). Hope this gets you running.
