Why Won’t My 2005 Ford Focus Start and There’s No Clicking?

After running a few errands, I attempted to start my 2005 Ford Focus to head home, but it wouldn’t start. It didn’t even make any clicking noises when I tried to start it. Do you know why my 2005 Ford Focus won’t start and there’s no clicking?

If your 2015 Ford Focus won’t start and you don’t hear clicking when attempting to start it, your car may have one of the following three issues:
  • A dead battery
  • A dead key fob battery
  • A faulty alternator
First, pick up a new battery for your key fob and then try to start your car. If that’s unsuccessful, use a multimeter on your car’s battery to get a read on its voltage. If the multimeter displays a reading between 12.2 and 12.6 volts, your battery is healthy.
Your car may be dealing with a more serious issue, like a bad alternator. Call a tow truck to bring your car to the nearest auto shop to discover the root of your car starting problem.
