08 4.0 Ford Mustang battery or starter problem?
I have an 08 4.0 Mustang and when I try to start it, it hesitates but usually starts. It seems to be getting weaker though every time I try to start it and then it wouldn't start so I had to jump it. It did that a few times and then I got a new battery and it is starting to do it again. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Sounds a lot like what happened when the battery was dying on my 09 gt.
^with the new battery did you ever give it a chance to sit on a charger or drive on a long trip?
Yea its been driven on a two hour trip since then. I tried taking the cables off and letting it sit to see if something was draining it but I can't find anything that would be draining it.
Well these cars are known for weak alternators so that might be your next move...
Best thing would be to take the battery in to be checked.or if you have AAA tell them your car won't start and what's wrong.they will send a battery truck to you and they have a machine that plugs in and it will tell you exactly what's wrong.
sounds like a battery that was slowly dying and is now dead
