nearly dead battery It also could be a faulty solenoid(located on the firewall) or the starter could be defective. ATTN: this is a very common problem with all Fords, clean your battery terminals,any debris or build up can cause this, take the pos and neg off, scrub the battery terminals , and you cable connections with a wire brush, do not get the debris on your self it is battery acid build up, if u do rinse with lots of water, this should fix your problem, should start, if not make sure battery is properlly charged!!!Plugz!!
