My wife was driving her 2004 Mustang the other day when the entire
electrical system died. The radio went dead, the engine stopped, the
dashboard lights and indicators went crazy. The engine wouldn't crank,
so I tried to jumper it to a battery in my Ranger with the Ranger
The Mustang still wouldn't crank, so we towed it to a Ford dealer as
it is still under warranty. The dealer diagnosed it as a "bad" battery
and replaced it and all is now well.
The dealer told my wife something about it not being possible to
jumper these batteries. I'm not sure if he was referring to all ford
batteries, or just this particular "bad" battery which I suspect
developed an internal short.
Has anyone ever heard anything about not being able to jumper ford
BTW, the same exact kind of battery failure and inability to jumper
start occurred in my wife's 1999 Mercury Cougar when it was about 3
years old. Has anyone else heard of these kind of battery failures?
