Question about Ford F-250

1 Answer

When trying to start my F-250 5.4 liter I get a click under the hood and everything goes dead. I put a new battery in it but it still does it. Could it be the selenoid?

    Do you mean the whole electrical system goes dead, no dash lights gauges nothing?

Sounds more like a loose battery cable connection, or the connection to the starter or ground cable.

Ticking/clicking from fuse box under the hood. Everything is dead. I pulled fuses and disconnect the battery. Now what?


Look for a major short somewhere. Clicking is probably from thermal reset circuit breakers trying to reset and finding short still in existence. Have a mechanic check electrical system.

1997 Nissan Pickup stick shift. It will no start can puch start it. Put a new started on thinking it was that. Also tried jumping it off, nothing worked. Any ideas what it could be. Oh when trying to crank...


I would have the battery load tested as it indicates a bad cell. If the solenoid only clicks but you can push start it then the battery is too flat or dead and if a jump starting will not work then the jumped battery is feeding into a dead short in the other battery.

Battery is dead...new battery. will jump start and run fine but after sitting several days...everything is dead


Dead short somewhere in elec. circuit. May want to try removing glove compartment light bulb and under hood bulb to se if one or the other may be staying made continuous. That could trickle rob your battery. Just a thought.

I have a 2000 xterra when i turn the key on there is a clicking behind the center of the dash down by the floor and one under the hood around the plenum and we have no spark just put a new timing belt...


I would check your battery connections, make sure they're snug. If they're fine, try jump starting your Xterra, the battery may be dead or close to dead.
Hope this helps!
