Ford Mustang--(like ford ranger)


#1

I’ve got a 1998 Mustang doing same thing as the 2001 Ranger post on here.



Wouldn’t start, replaced battery, Sears put it on machine to check battery system. Found no problems. After a week, wont start. Dome flickers, ignition clicks–quietly–and it did start with a jump. Oh yea, we replaced a fuse up by the battery. Any ideas, folks?

It sounds like the battery is dead… Get it charged and start the diagnosis over.


#3

Again, the battery is brand new…Diehard. Maybe bought it 2 weeks ago.

New batteries can be bad. I would have the battery and charging system checked by a different shop. Many (most?) auto part stores will check them for free.

I would also suggest checking the battery cables. Check all ends of all cables attached to the battery or alternator.
