When batterys are about dead and/or out of sufficient juice to start, they just click. I roll started mine for a week til I could afford to buy the replacement battery. lol.

first is it a flex fuel model??? If so they were notorious for having crank issues. If all else fails try turning it over by hand..(meaning 1/2" drive rachet short extention I think a 17mm socket and see if the motor turns.. i have a 99 3.0 and it drove fine everyday. Shut it off went to start it and all it would do was click click click... The shop called me telling me it was seized I didn't believe it... it only had 93k ..

op, is it an auto or a standard tranny? will it start by letting it roll down a grade popping it in gear? if it does it's probley a week battery or maybe bad wire ends down by the starter from corrosion?
