Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome!My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.
Are there any anti theft or security lights on or flashing on the dash when this happens?
Ok, then the starter motor has likely failed and will need to be replaced. It is common for it to work intermittantly like your describing. I would have it fixed before it leaves you stranded and you have to pay a tow bill.
Good luck and let me know if you have any further questions.
YUP! A bad starter can in fact do this.
