No crank/ No start


Recommended Posts

Good evening all, new member here,


Recently purchased a 98’ SVT contour with a 3.0L swap.


The car will not crank.  I verified the starter works, I checked the starter wiring, I even checked the starter relay. 

No noise, no crank.  I also noticed that a lot of the electronics on the car don’t work, I don’t know if it’s tied to the no start issue.



Any ideas?  I’m starting to suspect a bad “PATS” system

Bad PATS system is rarely a thing...


When you first turn the key on, the PATS light on the clock should come on solid - And then go out. If it doesn't come on or flashes rapidly you have a PATS or electrical issue.
