Question about 1994 Ford Explorer Limited
This problem does not happen all the time, but seems to becoming more and more common. When I turn the key, I hear the unmistakable click of a dead battery and lose all power, clock resets etc. If I take out the key and try again, 9 out of 10 times, the engine starts right up (the battery is new). Since I bought the truck three years ago, the key chime would always go off when ever the door was opened, whether the key was in the ignition or not. Also, the ignition lock spins completely around when no key is inserted, however the engine will not start unless the key is in the ignition. I only drive this truck a few thousand miles a year, so I am afraid of the expense of having an electrical problem diagnosed. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Have you checked all of the electrical connections to the battery, especially the smaller red one to the positive terminal?
