We isntalled a new battery in a '93 probe--and it won't start, but everything is getting power. How do we start it?

Asked by Feb 18, 2007 at 05:26 PM about the 1993 Ford Probe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We've had a very cold winter here in the Rockies and had to replace our cheap battery with another one. We know there's some sequence to get the car to start (related to the anti-theft system), but we tried everything. Suggestions? (Last time a Goodyear dealer had to do and wouldn't tell us--we even have the pink slip--my wife's owned this car since it was new.)

Hello, Because it is a security issue, I recommend calling your local Ford dealer and asking for their help. You have the proof of ownership, which is a great thing, as they may ask for it. Best of luck! CarGrrl
