Engine Mechanical problem
2005 Ford Focus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 45000 miles
The battery seems fine, lights work. Does not crank/fire when started. You can hear a clicking under the hood near the front (meaning close to the windshield)on the drivers side when you turn the key. Lights and all gauges work fine. The battery seems strong. I was told it was pobably the alternator, in retrospect I think it may be the starter or could it be the starter solanoid, I checked the starter fuse under the hood, it is fine. I have not checked the fuses by the drivers side in the car. I know if the starter has to be replaced, you should also replace the starter solanoid. Could the solonoid be the cause of the problem or are the odds its the alternator?
Thank you for your help,
