Car cranks but wont start

Asked by Jul 17, 2016 at 12:00 PM about the 2004 Ford Mustang Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 mustang.
A few days ago, I noticed alot of corrosion on my
battery terminals. I tried to crank it up, it wouldn't
crank at all. I changed the terminals, now it's
cranking but won't start. The alternator was just
recently changed and the battery is fairly new. The
lights, radio  etc.... Are turning on just fine. What
could possibly be causing the issue. Is there
anything else that I can try before taking it to the
shop?

Check for blown engine fuse in fuse box under the hood.

I should have added that I'm a female. Lol I Know where the fuse box is located. Is there a specific fuse that I need to check?

Just take a close look at all of them you will be able to tell the difference if one does not look like the rest of them.

I found 2 that look like they may be blown, I'm not sure. They look like they have some type of blackish residue...? I'll change them and then update you.

Did you check the fuel pump? My 2004 Mustang went through two fuel pumps and only has 16,900 miles. The first fuel pump went at a little over 5,000 miles.
