I have a Ford F250 2003. I went to start it recently and it wouldn*t start after running just a few hours before. I had it jumped and it started right up. Next day nothing. No prior problems before. Battery doesn*t seem to be weak. Any ideas?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Suzanne, This sounds like a starter solenoid or battery cable connection problem. it could also be caused by a loose battery cable connection. It would be best to have it diagnosed by a professional to avoid replacing good parts while searching for the problem. You should take it to your local authorized dealership or to an ASE certified technician. You can find a certified technician near you by going here: Good luck!
