question about starter? gas guage?
I have a 2004 explorer and recently the gas gauge quit working. I was wondering if that has any connection to the starter? Tonight the truck wouldn't start. The lights and everything came on but it wouldnt turn over. Are the two connected in being why one doesn't work neither would the other? Any advice or help would be appreciated. We had a 2000 Ford windstar a few years ago and it did the same thing. I tried to start it and it wouldn't turn over. We paid to have it towed to a shop and the next morning when they went to work on it it just started right up and found nothing wrong with it. Thanks
Starter and fuel gauge are not directly related...It's not uncommon for the modern electronic dash clusters to burn out a resistor and lose a gauge like that. The starter problem is probably that the starter itself has a bad spot in it, and needs to be replaced.
We just changed the starter and the battery and it is still doing the same thing.
