I say it's the battery. Just because your lights work and radio works doesnt mean the battery has enough juice to start the vehicle. Can you put a volt meter on the battery and check it while someone cranks it?
Jumped it and it started right up. Took it to have the battery tested and they told me that the battery was 100%. The guy at Auto Zone asked me if I checked the starter. He told me that ford is known for the connections going bad on the starter? Any truth to this?
Cleaned up the terminals on the battery and put a battery charger on it to make sure it was fully charged last night. Got up this morning and battery had 12.6 volts. Again clicking no start. Put the charger on for about 5 min and it started right up. I thinking of getting the battery tested again. I took a look at the starter cables and they look good and tight. Any further ideas?
Even then, it can test good, but will still be bad. I suggest a 800CCA or bigger battery.
