Question about 2007 Ford Mustang GT California Special Convertible

1 Answer

Why doesn't my 2007 Ford Mustang start

-Checked the Clutch Solenoid -Hit the starter with a hammer -Verify Battery is connected -Checked fuses. I have radio and headlights when I turn the key. All we here is a click ( not the usual multiple clicks that tells you it's a battery problem) when we turn the key to start up. When we turn the key, nothing happens.

It sounds like the dog gear on the motor is stuck, try putting it in gear and rocking the car back and forth a few times, take it out of gear and try the starter again

SOURCE: my ford f150 wont start, battery is good, have a

On the firewall is the starter motor relay. There are 2 large battery sized cables to it, and 1 smaller ( 16 AWG ) wire that is orange or orange with a stripe ( forget the color, want to say white or tan ).

When you turn the key to the start position, check the smaller gauge wire for +12 V. The case should be ground. If you do not get +12 on the orange wire, try starting the truck in neutral ( apply the parking brake, chock the wheel, etc normal safety precautions ). Test for +12 V at the small wire. This is the output of the DTR ( Digital Transmission Range ) sensor or in common terms the Neutral switch. The start position on the ign switch runs through the DTR to the starter motor relay coil.
If you have a stick, the DTR is replaced by the Clutch Pedal Position Switch ( clutch must be pushed in to start ).
If you have power to this ( at the times the truck won't start ) next is to check the both battery cable ends to see if they are corroded and making intermittent contact ( not probable but possible ).

If your solenoid is in the engine compartment, you can try to jump the two posts with a screwdriver or other metal tool. just touch both posts at the same time. If the engine turns, then your solenoid is bad. If it doesn't turn then your starter is either bad or the connections at the starter are dirty.

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Expedition won't start, doesn't click when I turn the key, the lights work and the radio, so I know it's not the battery.. what else could it be?

I am having a simular problem. I started out getting tire pressure light, brake light, and door adjar coming on when I was driving. It would stay on for a few min and go off. I wasnt getting any codes when it was coming on. Then I started having problems starting my 2007 Ford Expedition with 87,000. I would turn the key and my power seats would not move and I wouldnt get any lights. The only thing that would come on was the radio. When I turned the key I didnt hear anything. I can wait about 5 min and it will start. I have had it at the Ford dealer for about a month and they still dont know what the problem is. I have paid about 900 so far and the only thing they have done is change out the junction box and I still have the same problem. Please help!!

91 Ford Mustang what is common wiring problems and starting problem with the starter and heard in a pop under the hood on the driver side n smoke coming from drivers side under hood?


You did not mention what the status of the car was when this happened (VERY IMPORTANT... DO SO NEXT TIME). If you were attempting to start the engine when this happened, your starter may have failed. Starters occasionally shunt and cause this. Try replacing the starter AND starter solenoid. Also, verify that your battery connections are good, and that the battery wires did not have a meltdown. If they are burned, REPLACE THEM as well.

1998 ford mustang no start just a single click


If the starter is clicking when you turn the key that means it is getting power. It could possibly be a bad new starter but before taking it out and testing check your battery and ground connections. Make sure they are clean by using some sand paper. There is also a ground wire that hooks to engine make sure it is hooked up and not corroded. Even though you bought a new battery make sure it is fully charged. Remember to remove the ground from battery before taking any positive wires off. Hope this helps.

Won't start, won't crank


What you say does not make sense. Starter/solenoid works off the car, but only the solenoid works on the car? Is your ground wire from battery to engine loose? Both solenoid and starter use the same ground wire...?

Car doesn;t turn over 2000 ford mustang


There is a switch on the Brake pedal or on the Clutch pedal(If equipped) that prevents cranking the engine if the pedal is not pressed while trying to start the car.

Often this switch gets hit by the Driver's feet and either loosened or broken. Another thing to have checked is the Battery. The Antitheft may kick in if the Battery is weak.

Please comment on my info.

Get dashboard lights but car wont turn over not a sound


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. This means that power is present. Locate your starter. The hot side battery wire, one leads to the alternator and the other to the starter. It is usually on the bottom front of the engine. Hit it a few times with a hammer, just enough to give it a decent hit. See if the car will start. You probably have a bad starter or starter solenoid. If it starts, it still will need changed asap. If it doesn't, it may be a bad ignition switch. Also, check to make sure the battery is cleaned, no residue.

I don't know what your problem is. I would suspect your solenoid as you suggest. It is easy checked with a volt ohm meter and a friend. (voltage always present on the battery side - voltage present on starter side when the key is turned to the start position)

Is this a manual or auto? I guess you know there is a switch on the clutch if it is manual - clutch MUST be depressed to start. Im sure you know this!

Check the solenoid. You could jump the solenoid with a auto grade jumper cable to double check your electric (volt/ohm) check.

Thanks for your quesiton at FixYa.com
