My 2003 mercury mountaineer won't start but the dash board is lighting up

Do the headlamps work ? Are they bright ? Turn the key to start position ,do the headflamps dim ? I am assuming that when you turn the key to the start position nothing happens ! Starter doesn't spin . What engine size ? 4.0 or 4.6 L ?????
Do you know how to do automotive electrical system testing ? How to use a wiring diagram to find point's in the circuit to test from . When you turn the key to the start position a B+ voltage signal is sent to the PCM - engine computer , to signify that start is requested > If there are no problems with the anti-theft system the PCM will supply a ground to the starter relay . Has to have B+ voltage supply from fuse F2.29 10 amp in the central junction box . Voltage from this fuse goes to the park neutral safety switch an through to the starter relay if the park safety switch is good . Then there is the load or starter side of the relay , If the switch an relay are good an the pcm energizes the relay B+ voltage from fuse F1.12 a 50amp fuse goes to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . free wiring diagram ! Enter your vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size ! Under system click on engine ,then under subsystem click on starting .Click the search button , then on the link ! View what all is involved in the starter circuit of your vehicle . Look on youtube for how a relay works . Watch some videos on basic electrical testing .

Hi I have 2 peugeot speedfight 2, on one of them the oil light was flashing I filled it up but didn't stop flashing

Low oil is indicated by a steady red light (not flashing) so I guess the oil level is not the problem.
Start off by just turning the ignition on and don't start the engine. You should only have the usual power lights and the oil light should be steady as no oil is being recirculated. If it flashes at this point, it is nothing to do with the oil pressure and points to an electrical issue elsewhere. If it is steady then start the engine and let it tick over. As you know, the red light should go out or at worst glow dimly until you rev the engine and that makes it go out as the oil pressure increases. If it starts flashing now I would suspect a relay somewhere clicking in and out and lighting the bulb. It is possible the immobiliser is playing up, especially if the battery has been disconnected, not enough of a problem to stop the engine from starting but enough to throw up an error somewhere.

Insaled new battery starter wont do nothing

Yes they do have anti-theft system systems ! Are there any lights lit or flashing on the Dash , anything like SECURITY ? Turn on the headlamps , are they bright ? When you try to start the car do the lights get dim ? In the under hood fuse / relay box is a starter relay .If you knew how you could test for power an control an even try jumping pin 30 an 87 to see if the engine cranks over ! If you look on the side of the relay there is a diagram of what number the pins are ! Should be pin 30 that's battery + voltage , Pin 87 goes to the starter , Pins 85 an 86 are the control side of the relay ! One of them has battery + voltage also an the other is control from the PCM - powertrain control module - engine computer ! There is also the transmission range sensor or park neutral switch.If it's not in park or neutral it won't let it start either !

2002 mazda tribute, when I switch on the igition to start position the starter will not turn over and yes the battery cables are clean and tight. all the lights work and dash panle lights up as well, but...

Hi, if there is no clicking at all, the problem is usually the safety interlock or the starter relay. First, check the 40 amp crank/start fuse to make sure the power is available. Then try starting in neutral or put your foot on the brake and shift thru the gears while holding the key to start. If the interlock is maladjusted, the engine should crank. If this doesn't work, pull out the styarter relay and probe the relay socket with a 12 volt test light. Connect the test light clip to engine ground and probe the socket. There should be one hot terminal with the ignition off (from the start/crank fuse) and 2 hot terminals with the key turned to start (from ignition switch). Next, move the test light clip to battery positive and probe the socket again. With the key turned to start, there should be one terminal that lights the light brightly (interlock signal) and one that lights it dimly (starter solenoid). The outcome of these tests will point to the problem. Please let me know the outcome of these tests if you have not solved the problem by the point of finishing them.

Had starter tested and it is good. had battery tested and it is good also. checked all fuses and all relays all good. engine will not crank. i think the ignition switch is loose could this be the problem ?...

There is a switch that only allows the starter to work if the gearshift is in neutral or park.
Try wiggling the gearshift while you try to start the engine. If that causes the starter to engage briefly, you'll need to either re-align the switch or replace it.

Clicks when attempting to start

If it is just one click per attempt, it may be a bad solenoid on the starter or fire wall relay
If it rapid clicking, it is probably a low battery charge.
Turn on your head lights and check for brightness, leave them on and attempt to crank engine, if the lights go dim, the battery is probably dead. If they stay bright, one of the solenoids ( relays) is probably bad.

Engine shut down on freeway. Good battery, low oil but engine not seized, start relay clicks, but when key turned, nothing-headlights don't dim, idiot lights don;t dim, Nothing. 1997 Toyota Tercel

low oil boiling water sometime automatically stop the engine for further damage. stop the engine wait for sometime. fill up oil/water. check fuse/switches for engine/lights/dimmer. re start.
