I have a 1999 Mustang starting problem?
1:26 - If the vehicle is cranking and not starting have someone beat on the gas tank while someone cranks the vehicle. If it starts, you have a faulty fuel pump. No change, pull out a plug and see if you're getting spark. You are either getting no spark or no fuel. A vehicle can crank, however without both of these you will get the problem stated. More than likely, if the fuel tank trick doesnt work, it should be towed and diagnosed by a local reputable shop, not a pricey dealership.
Edit: First: "the battery did not actually fix it.." Ok, if you put another battery, it will work normally? Yes or no. If yes, then you either have a slow draw on your battery or your alternator isn't giving enough output. If no, then the motor is turning over but never actually starting which can range from multiple things like fuel pressure, sensor reading problem, etc.
Hello! To confirm, let me know if I am wrong. You turn the key and the lights come on, however the vehicle does not turn over. The motor is not making any revolutions.
1st, jump your car and if it starts it is a possible battery or alternator issue.
Second, make sure you have no suspicious lights on while the vehicle is trying to start. Confirm the theft light isn't flashing. When you try to engage the vehicle to start, do you hear the clicking of the starter? I suspect there is a possible problem with your starter relay, connection to the battery or starter or the starter itself. If you are able to do a starter draw test, it should draw about 800 amps under load. Maximum voltage drop under load should be half a volt. Make sure you do not have corrosion or connection issues by moving the wires back and forth to see if loose. If all these things check, you can tap on the starter assembly while someone tries to start the vehicle and it may start. Make sure however to be clear of any moving belts or pulleys when trying this. If you're standing at the front of the car looking at the engine, it should be located towards the front passenger side of the engine. If you are unsure about any of this, best thing to do it not to take it to a dealer, but to a local reputable shop. They will be cheaper than a dealer in diagnosis, parts, and labor. Update the question if I can help you further! Good luck.
