2000 Ford Mustang GT convertible:

This past Monday, the car was hesitating on acceleration, now the next day the car didn't turn on (it does crank).  The battery is new, and has about a 1/4 gas tank.  No visible code on dashboard.  There is a lot of dirt on top of the engine (in case it matters) since I park it next to a dry dirt lot.

Don't know if it has anything to do with the problem,you but I hardly move the car since it's my spare car.  I'll take it around the block once a week, sometimes once every two to three weeks.


A lot of dirt on the engine cover could make it to the air filter and restrict the air flow. By now you should have gotten the check engine light to come. Correct?

No check engine light on the dash. I just bought this battery so I leave the battery disconnected so it doesn't die on me again. I reconnect it whenever I take it around the block... Could it be that it's not enough time to let the engine light turn on? I will leave it connected a day or two and see it the check engine light turns on.

You need to keep the battery connected to see which code comes up. If you disconnect the battery you are reseting any pending codes every time.

Did you get this fixed? I am experiencing similar issues.

The mechanic though it was the Fuel Pump & Filter, when replaced them and found water in filter, he emptied the tank and cleanced it. All was replaced and the car didn't work! ($350 and wasn't the problem!!!)
Then he found out that it was the "CCRM (Constant Control Relay Module)" or also called "Multi function relay (ccrm)" that he had replaced last October for air conditioning not working. He replaced and now the car worked at no change since it was a part that he replaced.
Hope this info help you.

Glad to hear that the problem at least got resolved. Thanks for the update as well.
