2007 Explorer won’t start intermittently

I bought the vehicle two months ago and have put less than 1,000 miles on it, so I don’t have much history with it. Monday morning I went start it and everything lit up but it would not turn over or make any noise that I could hear, it was very cold out and it had been sitting for a day. I took my other car to work and bought a new battery after work. I got home and tried starting it with the old battery and it fired up.

I put a voltmeter on the old battery and I got 12.15 so I figured the problem was the battery and switched it out the new battery that read 12.66 and with the motor running 14.67. It started fine Tuesday morning it was -2 degrees. I worked an 11 hour day went to start the car and the problem was back. Lights on doesn’t turn over or make noise. I don’t think I even heard a click.

After trying several times I had someone come over to jump start me but I tried on more time BEFORE hooking up any cables and it fired right up. I got home and restarted it ten times and it started fine every time and the battery is reading 12.36 volts.


I’m not familiar with Explorers at all so I don’t know if there is a common problem or a certain part that could cause this. I know it could the starter. I wanted to check here before spending any more money. Any help would be appreciated.

I would watch to see if the theft light flashes rapidly when it doesn't start. Could be an anti theft issue or starter system issue
