1993 Mercury villager Ls won't start, but has power
I'm at work, headed home,
tried to start engine, won't
start, but I have power.
Lights, dinging, Windows
work. ..how do I
specifically know if it's the
starter or colonoid(?)
Cannot Afford mechanic
so I'll have to get used part
and a handy
friend...Cannot afford to
get wrong part. ..
So what happens when you turn the key? Check the battery voltage?
Wiggle the shift lever to see it it's the neutral switch. In the old days I'd use a screwdriver and short from the battery terminal coming into the starter to the solonoid wire, to see if the starter works.
There's a barely audible rrr rrr rrr sound.
How do I check battery voltage? I got a jump. There's power. But engine won't start. Is it starter or celinoid? (Whatever it's called? )
I still think you've got a dead or shot battery. A charge overnight would be good. Use a cheap voltmeter to measure battery. 12.4 volts, 14.7 running. Use a screwdriver to jump the starter solonoid battery wire to the smaller wire connection to see it it turns over, if you can get at it.
