Car won't start

Recommended Posts

Ok need help here, my fiesta will not start, have put new battie on, so no it's not that. The lights on the dash all come on but nothing happens, the car is just dead, no noise what so ever, so which of these is it likely to be, Ignition switch, wiring, starter motor, solenoid, it will fire up if you bump start it. HELP.

If you hear a " click" like the battery is flat.... then chances are its a faulty starter motor...but never take for granted that the new battery is a good one remember a fully charged battery for starting is around 12.8 v and a flat battery is around 12- 12.4v due to the amount of current drop and cold cranking amps it takes to turn the engine over.... if you dont hear a " click " then chances are its a wiring issue Remove the small " switch feed " from the starter and check for around a 12v feed to this wire whilst some one turns the key, if there as feed then you have a dead starter if there is no feed to this wire then the next step for me would be to check that there is a 12v feed from the back of the ignition switch on the " start " position terminal.... if there is not then you have faulty ignition switch wiring...if there is then you have a break in the wiring witch normaly same as escorts etc will be the fuse box or the starter relay... if it appears to be the fuse box dont mess about trying to find the right coded one simply wire in your own starter relay wires ie just a plain old 4 pin relay seperate to the rest all these wiring diagrams can be easily found on the web. if you need any more help just message me on here as i dont come on here that often.

cheers

I turn my key nothing happens, all lights illuminate, changed battery not an alternator problem either as changed that changed starter motor, and fitted a wire from the starter to the battery to bypass any electrical faults and still won’t go, and it won’t tow start either, I don’t know what I should try next
