1991 Ford e150 Van won't start, just clicks once
I took it to the store and when I came out the
battery was dead. Charged it and the dash lights
come on But when I turn it over it only clicks one
time and I lose all power again. I was having
trouble starting it every once in awhile, it would
turn over just not start, about three attempts to
start and it would fire up. Now, just that one click
and I lose all power. Please help!
First clean and tighten the battery connections but your battery may not be holding a charge anymore. Also have the alternator tested.
The battery and alternator were both replaced less than a year ago
That was a year ago. Things go bad so have them both tested but first take care of the battery connections.
Ok. I'll try that. Thanks for such a quick response
No problem and good luck. How about a thumbs up?
This is the first time I've ever been on this site. What's a thumbs up?
Click Mark helpful at the bottom of the post. It is the only reward we have for answering questions.
Make sure terminal wire to starter is tight, and check the ground is tight for negative battery terminal and grounds to frame from engine block are good. Terminal wires if corroded may need replaced. If the battery is bad and you have the receipt it should of came with a replacement up to at least 2 years.
Thank you. I at least have some ideas now. You guys are great
You guys are my heroes. Checked all my wires and it started right up. Thank you thank you thank you!
I have a similar problem. One click is all I get. The starter was under warranty so I replaced that. Replaced solenoid (starter relay some call it) Tried with properly functioning 1000 cold crank amps battery. Engine turnable manually No pulleys were frozen or stuck Full voltage (Above 12.7) getting to starter. And I still get only one click. Any help appreciated....Tks
