Check battery Check battery cables for corrosion or looseness Check fusable link
dead battery or corrosion on eletrical connections wet wireing in motor bay if no response corrosion may be problem even if only small amount of corrosion can abstruct normal eletrical functions
There are a variety of things that could be going on. Check the battery to make sure it's holding a full charge. Also, the alternator could be going out. Check that the battery cables are tight and clean off any corrosion on the cables and battery posts. Also look for a loose wire coming from the battery and starter. There could also be a problem with the ignition switch.
Most likely the battery is dead. Sometimes when the voltage regulator or the battery is performing poorly, it may tax one of the other starting/charging system components. To the point of failure. Sight unseen, first thing would be have battery checked for integrity. problem may even be as simple as a bad (corroded) connection on the battery. Baking soda and water can eliminate battery post corrosion. Corrosion on posts are simple to remedy, but can cause a lot of inconvenience, and danger at times too if the car leaves you stranded. Good luck.
It is obviously a battery problem. First of all, check for signs of corrosion around the battery terminals. If there is a white chalky powder built up around the terminals, there is excessive corrosion. Remove both battery cables and clean the clamps and the battery posts. Replace the cables. and try to start. It may require a jump since the battery may be dead. Let it run for 15 minutes and try again. Secondly, the battery may be dead. Charge for a few hours with a charger and try to start. If this doesnt work, buy a new battery.
The most common cause for your 1996 Lincoln to shut down is a charging system problem. The alternator or the battery are malfunctioning.
Ford Expeditions and Lincoln Navigators 2003 thru 2007 have a problem with the rear window wiper pivot shaft assembly. Corrosion on the shaft is causing too much stress and is preventing the arm from returning to the rest position. The system continues to try to put the arm in the park or rest position and that drains the battery. This is covered in a recall and replacement should be free.
There is a product that looks like flat washers made of felt that you can fit over the battery posts that will prevent corrosion (don't remember what it's called, but available at your local auto aprts store or Walmart). You can also try putting a dab of grease on the battery posts and terminals after cleaning. The grease will work best for you to help eliminate corrosion's. The point of putting grease on the terminals is to keep oxygen from coming in contact with the terminals and also help with keeping acid off the posts. When you clean the terminals use baking soda and water to neutralize the acid which will help for future corrosion
The age of the battery sometimes makes no difference have it checked, you either have a severely bad battery or your connections or fuseable links are bad. Check and clean all connections from the battery all the way to their termination point, look at the wire as well since corrosion will lessen the voltage carrying ability of the wire. Many times there is corrosion all over the positive cable connection and if left unchecked it will start migrating through the cable. Then be sure that you have really good ground connections, battery to engine and engine to frame or battery to frame ( there should be 2 ) tight and in good condition. Lastly check where the positive cable connects to the starter they get loose or greasy sometimes and the fuseable links ( sometimes in the wires but mostly in the engine compartment fuse panel ).
Make sure the connections on the battery are good and tight, make sure there's no corosion on the battery terminals either. alternator could be discharging the batttery, check it out Answer Had same problem with a 1995. changed alternator. worked for about 2 days. Then same problem. Took it in, found it was a bad negative battery cable. Looked fine but needed to be replaced. Had the exact same problem with my 98' TJ, it is internal corrosion on the smaller of the two red wires comming off the battery and going to the PDC. Replace the Battery cable!!! Fixed the problem on my Jeep.
It's gotta be the battery/electrical. Prob a corrosion in the battery line that shocked the electrical system get it towed to a dealer and tell them your story.
Check for a bad ground. Follow the ground cable from the battery to the car's frame. If there is corrosion, remove the bolt, clean the area, and reattach.
Sounds like a starter problem to me. Check the battery first, then make sure the terminals are tight, and free of corrosion. Then if that does not help- tap the starter with an object like a wrench or small happer, sometimes that works. Good luck.
When you hear a clicking noise is most likely a battery problem however you stated that the battery was replaced so i suggest you check the condition of your cables look for rust or corrosion etc.
Most starting problems are checked by starting with ethier fuel, spark, or battery.
The problem most likely is the fuse to that circuit, the battery, the aternator, or the wiring. Have each checked.
Three possible reasons. 1) The bulb is faulty 2) The battery is "flat" i.e. it has no more charge in it or 3) There is a break in the circuit, maybe a poor connection somewhere. Corrosion on battery contacts is a common problem which could cause this symptom.
my 98 Lincoln had the same problem and i replaced the battery the car turns over fine now. good luck
If your 1997 Passat dies sometimes, you might have an issue with the alternator not charging the battery. You could also have a problem with the distributor or the coil.
The very most common problem with all General Motors vehicles is the side post batteries. Corrosion builds up and you do not get a good connection. Remove the negative cable First and Install it last. Clean the battery terminal and the cable ends with a wire brush or a battery cleaning agent. Check the water in the battery. If this does not take care of the problem then you need to have a professional check it out for you.
Check the battery cables for corrosion. That can often be a problem. Also check the fusable link that often goes from either the battery terminal to the inside of the car or from the starter HOT lead to the inside of the car. It depends on the type of car.
my best simple guess would be that there is a problem with your battery.... if you can, try another battery and see if that fixes the problem... if not, the problem may lie in your electrical re-charging system, like your alternator or wiring... but, before you replace the battery, clean the battery terminals and terminal connections.
Usually the problem is due to corrosion on the battery cables at the battery. You must check under the red and black stud bolt covers. It is not always visible from the outside. Carefully pry the bolts out and clean inside with a small brass wire brush. Use a corrosion inhibitor when reassembling. REMEMBER: Always wear safety glasses, acid resistant long sleeves and gloves to protect yourself from the corrosion. It is acid.
You think probable to corrosion.Corrosion is a big problem for technology.
