I have a 1996 ford explorer and it only starts sometimes. Battery is good. Starter is good and it doesn't make a clicking noise when you turn the key. ????!!!!!! Help
ether the alternator is getting weak or it can be the battery cable post clams that need to get replace or you might have to tight them they might loose or the battery post are dirty my need to get them clean theres a special tube brush i added a picture of it goodluck and hope this works fr you
Battery is fresh. Posts are clean. Ground is clean. Even if the alternator was weak it should still crank.. ?.
Sounds like dirty/loose battery connections. Also inspect negative cable on frame and motor. If loose or dirty it can cause this type of issue.
Bad alternator wont cause it not to start if battery is fully charged.
Posts are clean. No corrosion. Good connection
Possibly solenoid/starter connections. Also could be starter relay failing.
