Recommended Posts

i have a 03 ford focus zts( 2.3l duratec))

yesterday worked like a champ now today won't start no clicks like a low battery everything comes to life when you turn it to run but when you go to start nothing!

i pushed it in the garage and put my jump box on it and that did not change anything.

battery lvl is 12.43vdc

When you have the key in the off position there should be a red security light that flashes every 2 seconds. That is normal, but when you turn the key to the on position, not crank, just on, the light should come on for 2 seconds and then stay off, if the light flashes after you turn the key to the on position, it is a pats security issue. Check that light and see what it is doing!

If that checks out than you can check for power at the small wire on the starter with the key in the crank position. Also make sure there is power on the big wire on the starter all the time.

ok after letting it sit over x-mas i got backout in the garage tonight and the starter is fine removed it and had it tested no power at the little wire for the bedix checked the fuses in the fuse pannel under the hood and in the cab when i turn the key i can hear/feel the relay on the fuse block both in the cab and under the hood click over. i also swapped the relay in the cab with the exact relay that was for the rear defog both work..

where do i go from here ?

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
