Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

Do you own a volt meter?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 month ago.

Do you know someone that does so we can diagnose this electrical issue?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Unfortunately not.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 month ago.

Since we have no way to diagnose this. The answer your looking for. Are you asking what to expect when you take it to the shop or things to try now?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I guess there's not a whole lot I can try..
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 month ago.

That is correct. Without you being able to diagnose with my instructions. Anything I say to do would just be generic/educated guessing.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Now all lights have turned on, instruments as well but car still will not start..
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 month ago.

Will it at least crank?

With the instrument cluster powered up, is the theft light off or flashing rapid?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Off. Just a click sound when I start button
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 month ago.

Do the headlights shine bright and remain bright when trying to start?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Yeah they do.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 month ago.

Best I can tell from what you were able to give me. This looks like the starter relay is faulty or the starter motor is faulty. Sorry you asked about a concern that you are not able to diagnose from lack of tools. If your under 36000 miles you can call road side assistance and Ford will tow it and fix it for free.

Hello again Chris here,

  • I am following up with you to see if you got everything you needed from my answer.
  • I have not heard back from you, so I assume you were not pleased. We're you pleased with my help?
  • If you were not pleased with my help, please let me know by replying so I can help more.
  • This post is coming up on the 7 day mark where it times out. When a post times out, that means it's no longer on my active list (you reply and I may never know it.)

Thanks Chris
