1997 Ford F-150 Won't crank over now.


Asked by Nov 16, 2013 at 10:00 PM about the 1997 Ford F-150 Lariat Stepside SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My F-150 was clicking when I would try to start it. Now since replacing the starter and the selenoid and a brand new battery it starts to crank over then just stops...

1 Answer


Tighten and clean all battery connections. Also tighten and clean the negative connections on the frame and motor. Did you install new battery cable ends? Are yours still in GREAT shape? If not replace them too.
