K........... As title states i have just bought myself a 97 Catera in real good condition and at a steal of a price :thumbsup: Well im a total newbie to this car, i know ford escorts:yup: but i am however very mechanicly inclined, so i am totally up for learning!!

Well here's my issue with the car... It wont start!!! :rant2:

It will turn and turn and turn till the battery is dead but won't crank over. I won't however get the car in my possetion till thursday, but from what i have gathered from the previous owner the car is getting gas, and spark. He in the last month has installed a brand new fuel pump, filter and the cps hoping that would work and it didn't. So he thinks it has something to do with the factory alarm system because the security light on the dash flashes constantly rather the key is in the ignition or not.

Iv done some searching and all i can mainly come up with is cps sensor but that's new and a few ways to try and reset the alarm system. :confused:

If anyone can please help me with some advise/info i would be very greatfull and very much in your debt :worship: I'm positive that the car will pass saftey so i just need to get it going now. Thanks for your time!

does it make a clicking noise when you try to crank it if you do its the soloenoid. its a good chance your battery cables could be bad. go under the car andtest the starters solenoid and and see if you get 12v. if you dont chances it is your battery cables. another thing to trouble is your ingtion module and around your distro block
