Question about 2003 Ford Crown Victoria

2003 Crown Vic starts when it wants

My 2003 Vic P71 only starts up on its own every few times. Otherwise I have to have someone hold the key while I contact the solenoid with a hammer. Money's tight, so I have to know: is this a starter in need of replacement or some cable going to the battery?

Thanks,
Sean

    MY 2003 CROWN VIC WONT START, NO CRANK AT ALL. STARTER CHECKED, NOT THE PROBLEM, SOMEONE SAID IT COULD BE THE "AUTO THEFT" CHIP IN THE KEY. DOES THIS SOUND POSSIBLE?

If you have to hit the solenoid with a hammer it's a sure bet that the starter is junk. however you can save cash by going to Napa or Oreilly's and and get the starter. don't go to a dealership part counter because it will cost you 3 times the amount. in order to be prudent just check to make sure the ground cable to the trans housing is tight this serves as the ground for the starter. good luck and please rate this..thanks

01 crown vic p71 do i need a new oil pump .. Gauge jumps up and down. Motor has vibration


Tough to say. The lifter making the noise could be allowing oil pressure to escape. Or it may be dry for oil because oil is not getting to it.
You may have to take the lifters out to see if it is a lifter problem or lack of oil.

Low and High Beams Don't work.


It sounds like your actual switch has broken and may need to be replaced
