You're in the appliance section for a car problem...however, I had that same issue after my car sat for 10 days. I made sure the jumper cables were good and then let my battery charge on my buddy's car for about 20 minutes. When I tried it then, it worked fine. But then again, I'm better at appliances than I am cars

2003 ford explorer wont start hear a click under the hood, i tried to jump it and it wont start. do u think it needs a starter?


Go under the car and have a helper hold the key in the start position while you probe the wire to the solenoid for 12 volts, also do a voltage test on the positive battery cable and inspect it at the battery for acid intrusion near the positive battery post clamp, if acid has gotten into the cable the outer insulation will appear swollen and the cable must be replaced, this is a common cause of no starts on Explorers.

If you used a battery cable to the big post

nothing,then the starter is bad

You can put battery voltage to the solenoid

Neither test requires the key be on,you going direct

It wont start, just makes a clicking noise. put new battery cables on, new starter, new cylinoid. tried to jump start it, wont jump start either


Clicking noise usually means a bad connection at the battery terminal. It can also be a bad connection at the starter or solenoid.
Re-clean and tighten battery cables,and if that doesn't do it,re-tighten starter connections.Don't overtighten as copper-bronze studs can break easily.If your Ranger is standard shift (4 or 5-speed), don't get under the car or in front of it without the battery cables disconnectede or the shifter in neutral,as any current you inadvertently send thru the starter can engage it and run you over or knock the vehicle off jackstands or blocks. don-ohio

1992 acura,my car wont start,not even cranck . head lights,and dashboard work, but dont cranck.


What happenes when you try to jump start the vehicle? If it starts - then it is most likely the battery or alternator. If it doesn't start then the solenoid or the starter or the engine. To get it down to the starter or engine - disconnect the serpentine belt and turn the crankshaft with a wrench. If it turns - then it is your starter/solenoid.

MY ford tempo is not starting i changed the distribuator cap and router and alternator and got new batterie now the solinoide off of the starter on driver side fender is ticking when trying to turn car...


ether a bad solenoid or a bad starter. Assuming you cleaned all the cable connections.

Put in park and and try bypassing the solnoid with a jumper cable. Battery positiv post to starter.
Be careful

Click when trying to start


Sounds like battery and battery cables full of resistance and battery may need replacement or charging.

Turn key and nothing happens, replaced the starter, now it is only clicking from the new starter. I have a new battery instaled that will show 12 volts on my dash when connected to another battery jumping...


if you replaced the starter with a remand unit it could still be a bad starter(personal experience),but if your battery show 12v only when being jumped your battery is having issues,take the battery and have it checked if it was replaced before the starter it could have problems due to the starter drawing to much at once and not recovering,and also have the alternator checked out this will kill a brand new battery very quickly even with nothing on.

Car wont start


Does the battery have enough capacity to turn over the engine though? Even flat car batteries will still power the radio. The best way would be to jump start the car uing a set of jumper leads. If it starts you know it is the battery that needs replacing.

If it still wont turn over then it is most likely the solenoid in your starter motor. You can often tap the starter motor with a hammer and free the solenoid as a temporary fix. The starter motor is loacted at the back of the engine on the bell housing if rear wheel drive, or around the tranmission if a front wheel drive.
