Hi guys,

My car is 2003 ST170

recently, my ST170 got a problem

When I insert the key and turn it, my odo meter shows like the pic: (No number, only bars)

(Sorry I don't know how to link the pic here)

And there is no any response to start.
(But it happen sometimes, when it could start, starter, battery, relay and other all are ok, no strange or error)

If anyone knows how to solve it or the problems, please let me know it!

Thanks for help!

What are the circumstances when it occurs ie cold first start up or partially warmed up etc. Do you keep trying and it all of a sudden works or? It won't jump start either? I would check all of the battery/ground connections for looseness or corrosion to start.

There is a small gauge wire that grounds to the negative battery post and it runs on the drivers side of the battery. They commonly are buried in with bigger wires and can break to not be seen and will do that.

Make sure battery terminals cannot be turned by hand, they appear to be tight by the nut holding them on but they often are not. Crap Ford terminal design there.
