Is it cranking or not cranking? It could be spark plugs that are getting old or spark plug wire problem . Your battery goes down because you try to start the engine to many time. is this a new car with electric anti corosion system this system will drain your battery. the problem is the charging system The alternator may need to be replaced. (A local mechanic or parts shop may sell you a rebuilt one and give you some money back for the old one.) It may just be that the alternator belt needs to be tightened. If you're able to turn the wheel (belt drive) on the outside of the alternator with your own hand (while the car is not running, of course), then the belt is too loose. If you have a crowbar and a wrench and a little bit of muscle, you can tighten the belt yourself.

What is wrong when a 2001 ford mustang will not turnover or start?

When you open the hood , does the underhood light come on ? Or , if the drivers door is open with the key in the ignition do you hear the warning chime sounding ? If not , it sounds like a poor battery cable connection or a dead battery ( you could have a dead cell in the battery , in which case you can boost the battery to start the car , but if you shut it off it will not restart unless you boost the battery again )
