New battery still won't start

#1

2001 Mustang, replaced the battery but it still won’t start. tries to turnover but won’t. Electrical or fuel issue?


#2

Does the engine CRANK (turn over) at normal speed?? Miles on car??


#3

With a new battery the engine should be turning over fast and strong. If it’s not then it sounds like an electrical problem.


#4

Only if the new battery was fully charged.


#5

They generally are. I’d check the ground wire. Might be chewed through or making poor contact.


#6

What did you replace the battery with?


#7

If the engine “tried” to turn over with a new and fully charged battery ,but would not turn over, then the issue has to do with the ignition system. You might have a bad starter, or loose battery or starter connections.
