I have a 2001 Ford Mustang V8 5 speed manual and it is not starting. I live in Minnesota and park it during the winter. This winter I took the battery out; come Spring I re-installed the battery and charged it. When I insert the key and try starting it, the engine does not turn over.
A couple of people say it is the fuel pump since it sounds like the engine is not receiving any gas. One of my friends who owns a Mustang told me about the fuel pump switch in the trunk. I found the switch and the red button is not "popped out" so when I try pushing it nothing happens. Another guy said something about if the THEFT indicator flashes rapidly when I try to start the engine.
I am looking for some help on what might be the problem for why my car is not starting. The car ran great before I parked it before the winter; the car is covered and parked in my garage the entire winter. Any ideas are welcomed. Thanks in advance!
