start mode makes no sound at all

Asked by Feb 08, 2015 at 09:11 PM about the 2003 Ford Explorer XLT V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

started engine to let warm up for 10 minutes and put it in reverse and it died. when I tried to restart, starter made no sound at all. so I jumped across the starter solenoid and it cranked over good but would not start. after running some test I suspect the ECM has failed because my scanner is not showing anything and I use it all the time

definitely check the relays before you go replacing the computer. the ecm port can be powered by a fuse too, it is usually the cigarette lighter fuse.
