Question about Pro-Fit Pro.Fit Fo 71 02 Ford Explorer/Mercury Mountaineer Sable
I bought a used 1998 Ford Explorer two days ago. While checking the vehicle out before I left, I shut the engine off, so the oil could be checked and topped off, if needed. The Explorer wouldn't start without a boost. The dealer said that I should have a full charge within fifteen minutes. An hour later, when I got home from the purchase, I parked it. When I tried to start it, last night, it wouldn't start, so I bought a battery today. It still will not start, not even crank over, it just clicks. The lights and radio work fine. What is the problem? Help!
Check that the cabling going to the starter is ok. and the ground to the frame and the engine block.the other thing is that it is possible the starter has a "dead spot" in it.have someone turn the key to start and bang on the starter with a hammer .not too hard.the starter on ford starters usually have a solenoid and it is possible that is no good either...
