Try replacing the starter this sounds like the problem i've seen this happen alot. if you pull the starter the local parts shop usually will test the stater for you to make sure its deffective, they will also check the new one if its a reman, to be sure it works properlly

Pull out your starter and have that checked, you can also try hitting it before you take it out.

My Lincoln navigator won't start tried to jump start but get nothing when key is turned on air ride kicks on but no radio is it starter


You need to perform some detective work. Diagnostics is very important due to the new complex electrical systems. There can be a dozen or more reasons why it won't start. From your symptoms it sounds like a loose cable or connection going to or at the power distribution box. You should have power to everything when the key is in the "Run" position. I would start there and check for blown fuses too. The problem could also be a failure inside the ignition switch but I need to read more first to help you better. Please elaborate on your description about jump starting the SUV. Are you saying that the battery was dead or were by-passing the ignition switch? If the battery is dead you need to take care of that first. If you were by-passing the ignition switch. I need to know why the engine didn't crank over. This failure alone could be the battery, either battery cable, or the starter itself. Please write back and be as descriptive and detailed as possible. You are the eyes and ears of this vehicle. I'll do my best to help you narrow down this problem and hopefully solve it, good luck.

Intermittent electrical shut down


When you turn the key on, do the warning lights come on the dash ?
Can you turn the headlights on ?
These answers will help narrow down the problem to the main circuits or just the key switch.

Car wont start. power to accessories. wont turn over. wont even click. new battery ad new starter. any ideas?


Hello,
If you not even have a click this narrows it down to only a couple of areas. Most likely it is a ground issue. I for sure would really check your cable and connection from your battery. The hot lead and more importantly the ground that goes to the frame. If it is not clean and grounded real good, you will not even get a click. if you turn key on and hear nothing, it is for sure the connections from battery to ignition. Now, if you can turn on head lights and all that, that mean your getting power to your ignintion and battery is good, now what this means is the connections from your starter that go to the battery are not good. Check those real good. I am almost positive this is going to be a connection problem of starter and battery. keep me posted MIke

Eengine wont start has gas and spark?


Does it sound like its spinning or turning faster than normal? If so could just be flooded. Try cranking engine with excellerator 3/4 way down at 10 sec intervals with 2 min brake in between. These cars have always seemed to flood easy. And the air intake system is so enclosed it cant really dry out easy. I try that 3-4 times if it does seem like its trying to start or getting better than Id say tow to mechanic. Possible coil problems too? But seen alot of them flood out.

Battery dead after a couple of days


Hello you can remove the possitive battery cable and hook one end of a test light to the cable end then the other end to the battery. If the light comes on then there is somthing drawing voltage and make sure everything is off when doing this test .Now to narrow down where it is drawing from . Start removing fusses from the fuse box one at a time and puting back in watching the test light when the light goes off you know where the problem is .

Diesel engine wont start will turn over problem has been narrowed down to immobilizer, is it possible to bypass immobilizer in diesel injector pump?


i had this problem and again it was narrowed down to the immobiliser. however it wasnt exactly the immobiliser it was the immobiliser coil. it sits around the key slot and it is the radio part that check the chip inside the key. got mine replaced and it starts first time every time now. it cost £35 to replace.
