    I have the same problem on my 93 fairlane!!!
    I cut the wiring harness from the old factory stereo to put a new on in and now the car just cranks but no spark. And the remote entry doesnt work..
    No smartlock light...

    I have a new Body ELectrics Module which I have replaced but because the battery is now dead I am charging it tonight but I dont think this has fixed the problem.
    All fuses are ok! Int light OK!

    Please help if you solved this weird problem!

Did you check the fusable links, It has been so long since I worked on one but should be close to your battery also check for twelve volts at starter. and check for voltage at solenoid from key switch. You should be able to hear it click.

    Actually they are generally identified by a plastic ring in the wire. If it is bad it will be burned are you you pull on the wire gently it will feel like it stretches. because the fuse wire inside has burn into because of a short. You can buy new ones or you can strip them back and twist them back together, but keep in mind these are there to keep the car from cacthing on fire in case of a short, and that is very important

2005 Ford Crown Vic, Cruise Control stopped working after I installed an aftermarket stereo. Alpine All-on-One

This sounds like as you have explained the removal of the factory fitted stereo is connected to the controls/ steering column by fitting the new stereo some electrical items remain unconnected. The volume control may be in circuit.
I have experienced this before on other models when fitting non factory extras.

16mm plug spanner, a regular socket is ok so long as it is a tight fit.
Use an extender and a crossbar on the socket instead of a ratchet, that way you can keep the socket dead straight.
