I have a 2003 ford crown vic, police package. It has hard steering and no electric power to the steering rack soliniod. When we power up the soliniod the steering gets easy. What powers up the soliniod or controls the circuit?

The police package interceptors had a common problem with the fans seizing up. There was a TSB ford released to correct the issue which called for the replacement of the electric fan assembly with an updated fan assembly.
Info is a little fuzzy, but here are some solid clues.
The 6th and 7th digits of the VIN should be 71 or 72 if it is a police or taxi model.
It should have a certified 140 mph speedometer and full set of gauges like the Crown Vic.
Very few Grand Marquis models were built with the 71 or 72 package because Grand Marquis was not sold to fleets like Crown Vics were.
I would be surprised if you found a hand full of any year after 1995 in the USA still on the road. The 2003-2004 Marauder would be the exception but they are rare too.
All 2000 and up vehicles utilize a Solenoid which is powered by depressing the Brake Pedal to allow the Shift Lever to be move from Park to any other position. Is the Shift Lever located on the Steering Column or the Floor? In either case typically the Solenoids used by Ford do occasionally go bad. I highly recommend having a certified technician replace the solenoid.
not to sound crazy ! do u own this car out rite! if so you can go to the dealer with the reg and they can cut u a key through the vin number! the key will cost 30 to 45 dollars ! its cheaper than a locksmith

i have ran into 2 issues in these vehicles---if it binds while sitting still also, check the steering shaft, i have found the u-joints in the shaft tighten up and binds dangerously tight---if they are free, sounds like you may have a steering box issue or restriction in a line---hope this was helpful!!
What rims are on the car the steel police ones and what tires are on it could be hitting the stops on the frame and where the proper bolts put back in on the rack mounts and did you go with the heavy rack for the police car .Cause when I built them there was an issue with the proper bolts and there was a different rack for the cop cars the to the basic crown vic do to the suspension upgrade on it and the diffrent pump
