Urgent Help Needed-Car won't start!
Hi everyone, Im having a BIG problem with my ED Fairmont. It willl not start! The more I try to start it, the worse it gets. Yesterday morning when i tried to start it for the first time, t treied to turn over a cuple of times, the cut out and i heard a 'tack, tack, tack' noise. The more I tried, the less it would turn and all Id get is the tack, tack, tack noise. Later in the day I tried it again and now Nothing happens at all when I turn the key. After turning the key, I dont hear the fuel pump activate, I just hear a constant low, whirring noise instead. Inside the clock onthe dash has gotten dimmer, and dimmer and now doesnt light up when the key is on ACC. Whatever the problem is it seems to be draining battery power. Indicators/hazard lights do not work properly, the 'ticking' u hear when theyre engaged is really fast.
I don't think its the fuel pump, Ive had that go on my EA before, and its a different experience. Today I was going to try it again, and when i tried to unlock the car with the remote, they kept locking and unlocking constantly, and each time it happened it seemed as tho what little power is left was running out.
This happened to me last week, and i thought it was the battery, so i charged it up, put it back in the caar and it still wouldnt start. It sat there for 3 days, and then when i tried it again, it started first go, and ran fine for two days. Now its started all over again.
Any ideas what it could be? Alternator maybe? A bad connection somewhere, or something stupid like a fuse? I checked to see if they were loose, but not what condition they were in. Ill give that a go first thing tom. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
