89 crown vic starting problem

Car has been not starting when cold.After leaving the key on for a minute or 2 the car will start.Battery is fine.No noise at all when trying to start.It doesn't turn.Seems to be getting worse as it gets colder.Could it be the starter selonoid? I was just about to get out and try jumping it with a screwdriver then the car started.If not the selonoid could it be the ignition switch or something?

Crown vic 2000 wont crank ? battery, alternator,starter,starter relay all good ?

The problem is in the wiring harness,yes the battery and starter is good, the harness you repaired is the PRNDL. for the starter to start it need a path when the vehicle is Park or Nuetral,there the path is closed some how by Park and Nuetral the path is open.Thats why there is a no start.when in park or nuetral the path is closed.

2005 Crown Vic will not start in cold weather

Perhaps it's a electronic sensor on the transmission not sensing the car is in park, or the linkage from the tree to the trans needs adjustment to the correct position so the sensor reads correctly.
