WON'T START

1989 Ford F-150 • 214,000 miles

My car was sputtering and would not start I jiggle the engine around little bit in a few places then all of a sudden it started so I moved it went backwards and then pulled into the driveway and turned it off waited for about half an hour try to turn it back on and got nothing from the motor the key just turned. I got no noise from the engine at all so I try and check the wires clean the battery post check the fuel pump Checked all the fuses also and still got nothing the key will make a clicking noise when turned all the way back and when you crank it forward to turn it after the click there's nothing

SNATCH THE BATTERY OUT, HAVE IT CHECKED 100% (LOAD TESTED) AT A POPULAR AUTO PARTS STORE.......USUALLY THIS IS A FREE SERVICE!

IF IT'S GOOD (BUT RUN DOWN) RECHARGE IT, STICK IT BACK IN

IF IT'S BAD.....BEFORE YOU GET A NEW ONE, THIS MIGHT SAVE YOU SOME $$$, "A124" IS STILL WORKING!!!!.......THIS CAN BE DONE ON YOUR HIGH-TECH PHONE IN THE PARKING LOT!

THEN DO THIS TEST.....

TO VERIFY IF THE ALTERNATOR'S CHARGING THE BATTERY........MAY BE A BAD ALTERNATOR....MAYBE A FUSE OR FUSIBLE LINK....LOOSE CONNECTION....ETC

REGARDLESS...LET ME KNOW WHAT YOUR TEST RESULTS ARE....MAYBE I CAN STEER IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION

I KNOW YOU ARE TIRED OF MY LINKS......BUT THIS GETS YOU MEGA INFO, QUICKLY, AND EASES MY HUNTING AND PECKING TO A MINIMUM!

YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE ALL OF THIS ALREADY....IF YOUR BATTERY CHECKED GOOD
