Question about Ford Explorer

2000 Ford Explorer V-8. Won't turn over.

I have a 2000 Ford Explorer V-8 5.0 liter Eddie Bauer. I just bought a new battery, and a new starter. The vehicle will not turn over when I try to start it. The starter sounds like it just isn't getting enough power to turn the flywheel over. The starter is new and the contacts are perfectly cleaned. I have read some of the postings and some of the people are stating it might be the positive battery cable that runs to the starter, has corroded on the inside and just doesn't have enough current running through it?

    First, if you are mechanic that is supposed to be familiar with Ford Explorers, you should have known that the solenoid on this model is a "starter-mounted" type. In addition, as I explained in my question; "I installed a brand new battery and a NEW STARTER!" Read the question!!

    Next time please have a "Qualified" mechanic respond to the postings!!

The next thing to check is 1: The starter solenoid (usually on the fender with batt. wire connected to it)
2: Use a breaker bar and manually turn engine at center crank bolt (clockwise). Either the solenoid is out or you have something more $/serious with the engine mechanically.

    Wow, you seem pretty irritated considering I am only trying to help you. Anyway, try the #2 part of my solution. I didn't see a response about that. If the battery is new and the starter is new- that's what turns the engine- it seems there is some type of obstruction mechanically.

    The battery is new but the starter is not and when you try to start the engine it doesn't click or do anything

SOURCE: The lower lumbar support on the driver seat will

the air lumbar is an air bladder in the seat that is inflated by an air pump. Either the Check valve in the pump has failed and not holding air in the baldder, or the bladder has cracked and is leaking. May be possible to find another seat at a junk yard that is the same as yours. Replacing the entire seat is simpler then replacing just the bladder and pump assembly.

They are round "cans" with wires attached. You should have SSA, SSB, SSC, Torque converter and Pressure Control solenoids. They control pressures and have no mechanical linkage.

Sounds like anti-theft system problem ! There is a little red light center top of dash pad , When you try to start the vehicle does the light flash fast ? If the vehicle thinks it's being stolen it won't let truck crank over an it turns off the fuel injectors !

Try disconnecting the battery for five minutes to reset the computer. You might want to write down your radio station settings. Some radios retain memory and some don't.

New starter and battery and still won't start

Could be voltage regulator or starter relay has also gone bad. Seems to be fairly common in the Bauer editions.

If you check the connection of the battery .
if you hear a cliking noise. and lights inside weak.
Is mean the battery is descharged or not good.
Try giving jumpstart cables. or with other battery.
Really I guess is a battery problem.
If the vehicle start. check if the Alternator is Charging.

I hope this could be a good point to start your diagnostic.

I hope work for you.
