Have a voltage drop test preformed on the start circuit. If all ground connection were Ok. One of the cables / wires probable has very high resistance after all these years or a ground is not connected or has corroded.Most of the time it sback and down under at the starter its self.(passengers side) lower engine.

Why don't you want to take it to a mechanic? Car owners must all do that- for maintenance and repairs- they are just machines, not magic- expensive machines-


I had a mechanic come look at it but he was lazy and kept telling me it was the battery when i told him it wasnt having one come look at it today hopefully i can get answers but í believe auto centric is right


Btw im not exactly made out of money after having it towed buying the fuse a battery and paying mechanics it gets pretty expensive

Thanks guys ....well after getting frustratated i decided to go for the ignition switch and "ta-da" that was my problem i unhooked the cables and hooked em back up and with a little charge it started like a pro


In my 2004 Ford Expedition the starter would not crank when I turned the ignition on. I tested all the fuses, went to auto zone to have them test the starter it was fine I took out the old volt meter and began checking the connections from the battery all were working. I check the ignition itself and I observed the problem, a broken connector I pinched it back together and the car started perfectly.
