1999 Mercury Sable 95,000 miles
Last night I returned to Iowa from 400 mile trip to Minnesota. Car ran fine all day yesterday on the trip. We ended the last 25 miles driving on E. When I went to start the car I turned the key and all I heard was a single tick or click noise. No sound of the engine turning or anything. The electronics still work inside, so the batter doesn't seem to be the problem. I haven't put more fuel in the car because I have to walk quite a way to get fuel and it's about 10 degrees. I am wondering though why the starter would not even attempt to turn the engine. I would think that the starter would attempt to turn the engine regardless of how much fuel is in the tank. Your help would be much appreciated. Hoping I just need to put more fuel in it, but I'm afraid that's not the main problem. -Thanks
have the same problem?
