Question about 1992 Mercury Grand Marquis
I charged the battery for about 90 minutes. When I turn the key, I get a humming sound. The battery and alternator are about 3 years old. I am able to start the car by shorting across the solenoid terminals. Any suggestions out there. Thanks!
You can typically bring your car into Sears which they have an electronic testing device that will allow you to hook up the car. normally they do this for free a few years ago. I'm not sure if they changed it. It will show you if the power is even passing through.
Most of the time you might need to clean off the metal clips that hook onto your car battery since it can build up gunk and doesnt allow the electricity to pass through. Otherwise you might need to change the spark plug which has been a simple fix to what you are also explaining.
Are you also hearing a ticking or clicking noise but it's not turning over? Has it gradually done this over time but now not turning on at all? Then there is a high change you might need a new spark plug.
Let us know how it goes!
