Most 1990-1999 Ford cars have an emergency fuel shut off switch. This switch is found on the driver's side in the trunk. It is a small black box (usually) and has a switch on top of it. All you need to do is move the switch to the other side. It should slide in the opposite direction.

well if you have a dvom/voltmeter check the power at the starter terminals. the main terminal should have power all the time the key wire should have power only when the key is turned to crank engine. if you have power at both then i would start looking at grounds

When I attempt to start my car lights and everything come on but when I turn the key do not here ticking from starter or doesn't attempt to crank at all.


Sounds like bad ignition switch.Check battery voltage it should be 12-12.6 volts.If its good check for power at starter on the switch side of solenoid if you don't have power its the switch if you do have power and it won't crank its the starter thats bad.

My Ford five hundred won...t turn over (crank)...the lights are on and when I turn the key I hear a ticking sound but it wont crank...what problem might I have


All indicates to a flat battery. If the lights work or the horn blows, that is no indication that the battery is still good. You need to use a hydrometer to test the electrolyte SG to check if the battery is at full charge.

Try to turn on key and vehicle won't start all dash lights light up. Mechanic says it not the battery If I wat a few minutes and try again it will. Steering wheel is not locked either.r


tickly problem this and i do not know the answer ,i have come across this before and the cause was the battery where the thing wouldnt give any reserve amp power but just activating the lights and ignition it then turns slowly then speeds up ,but i have also had the same problem or similar problem with a starter motor with the same symptoms ,nothing then another click and the thing works ,Now what i have had as well is a cheroke jeep with a weird quirk where it will not start ,cranks fine but doesnt start till you turn starter on three cranks and it starts first time on third crank and poor old dave my neighbour whos car it is has been very patient with me but even the local chrysler dealer couldnt cure it so iam not alone but then this is spain ,they said a new ECU which is what i said for free and they charged him a lot of money for my diagnosis .So treat your mechanic friend to a coffee from me please for answering this question for free .
