Have you checked the battery? Are you sure everything is connected/? If you can't get it to start because you have no juice but have a new battery, then that's a problem. Or something is draining the hell out of your battery. Check the fuses.

You can't on these. You have to get the pulley/bracket or replace the compressor. Sorry.

Sounds like the key logo is the thing that is preventing starting?

Key Symbol
What it means: You may need a key with the proper transponder in order to trigger the ignition. Or, there is something else wrong with your car's anti-theft system

Hi Calvin, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Calvin, I was reading your about your heating problem and when you said you had heat coming from the vents all summer long, this told me what your problem could be.

Here's what I want you to do! Because this is a common problem with ford. FIRST: Remove the glove box. Behind the glove box you'll see a white actuator with a lever on it. you will also see a metal cover, remove that cover. This actuator is what controls the heat and cool air from the vents. NEXT: Watch the actuator while moving the control on the head from cold to hot and see if it moves both ways or if it doesn't move at all. If it doesn't move replace it. If it does move all the way cold and all the way hot then let me know and will go to the next step to solve your problem. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website here: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

If equipped, it will be at the back side of the engine close to the fiewall. The heater hoses will connect to it. It is usually made of plastic and will have a small lever on it and a vacuum hose connected to it

Check your coolant level in the reservoir first and then by removing the filler cap above the thermostat. Sometimes, there is no heat because there is not enough water to circulate into the heater core. Also with the engine running and everything sealed up, squeeze the radiator hoses vigorously to remove trapped air. Open the filler cap carefully and check the level again with the engine at operating temperature so that the thermostat is open.

Other things to consider;

faulty thermostat. You can try running up to temperature after removing it. You can test the thermostat by removing it and putting into a pan of cold water on the stove and as it comes up to just before a simmer, you should see the valve open.

Faulty or disconnected linkage on the lever that decides if you want cold air or hot air.

Blocked heater core.

There are sensors on every wheel that tell the computer how fast the wheel is spinning. Likely one or more of those sensors is either bad or simply disconnected.

No, there is no valve in your car. The likely problem is a clogged core. Would you like instructions for replacing it?

There is a conflict with your vehicle and the listing you made for the type of vehicle. But several things to point out. First, if you drive on the opposite side of the road in France versus the United States, the headlight aim would be reversed.

The aim of the headlights can be different in the United States depending on State rules. In general, the curbside light is adjusted higher and the light on the oncoming traffic side is lower. The traffic side is adjusted more towards the center of the vehicle and the curbside is slightly over the curb. You do not want a dark area in the middle of your travel direction.

The vehicle is between 25 and 30 feet from a flat surface The light is adjusted a certain height from the ground. These specs vary and the height of your lights can come into play. Cover the opposite headlight to isolate the beam from the one you are adjusting. A simple towel can cover a lens.

There may be specs in France to cover this.

There might be many reasons for a car not to start and just by telling us that it won't start there is no way to give you much help. .
Call a towing service and take it to your repar service
