Re: EL XR8 starting problems - any ideas?
I had a similar problem with my EL, it wouldn't start sometimes (not even turn over) the idiot lights come on but nothing. Seem to be on a hot day mostly or when the dash was in the sun for long periods.
Asked Ford, they said it could be the smart lock system.
What i did in the end was smack the top of the dash real hard above the instrument cluster and bang she would fire over.
Used to sh!t me to no end, good anti theft device though.
