Customer Question
Battery turns over but...

Battery turns over but truck won’t start

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Yes. Cleaned battery terminals. Did not help. Tried a jump. Did not help.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2000 ford f150

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Had just stopped at Lowe’s to pick up some drywall and truck would not start. It is in their parking lot right now.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

How do I check if it is either the solonold or starter?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
