Battery is fully charged...

Battery is fully charged but it won't do anything

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

No battery issues, new battery

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

2005

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

Explorer

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

No, the vehicle generally runs great, we were hooking up the lights on the trailer trying to get them all working and I noticed that the turn signal wasn't flashing anymore so I went to start thr vehicle and nothing.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

It will not even crank in park or neutral?

Will the headlights shine bright and remain bright with the key in the start position?

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.
