Make sure the battery is fully charged and the charging system is ok. advance auto or autozone will check this for free. if all checks out i would say replace the starter.

I have a 1988 crown victoria. First the car would not crank because of a dead battery so i traded it with another battery around the house that was a 12v. Now when i crank up the car it will not shut off...

The battery is not the problem the starter solenoid that is mounted on the inside of the fender near the battery is causing this, the contacts get burnt from running a weak battery and burn closed. The red (+) battery cable goes to one side of the solenoid and the other side goes down to the starter. See picture below. I seen this dozens of times in my shop. The part is less than $20.00

My 1988 ford crown Victoria wont turn over period i replaced the ignition swicth and the starter and it still doesnt do anything so what could possibly be the problem.

Have you checked the starter will be mounted on fender near battery, will have a large wire coming from battery to terminal on one side and a large wire going to starter from terminal on the other side.Will alsp have a small wire coming from ignition switch , you should have 12 volts on both big terminals when the small terminal is supplied with 12 volts.Good luck!

Brand new battery with 850 cold cranking amps.....lights and radio work fine...try to start the engine and it is on the passenger side by what I think is the A/c unit

That would be your starter solenoid clicking, the positive battery cable runs off the battery to it, easy way to track it down, you can test it by putting your ignition key in the on position and using a jumper wire connect the two large terminals, if the car starts replace the starter solenoid, if it doesn't do anything replace the starter.

My battery on my 1989 Crown Vic keeps dying when left parked for several days. I have replaced three battery's and two fender mounted start solenoids.

Something is draining your battery when the car is off. Are your headlights coming on on their own when the car is parked? Sometimes the spring becomes weak in the switch and the headlight flash comes on and stays on. Try parking the car with the switch in the high beam position, closest to the dashboard. If you have a multi tester, go through the circuits at the fuse box with the keys out of the ignition and see if anything is drawing a lot of power, You will need to remove the fuse to do this.

Starting 1998 Ford Crown Victoria

try a jump...if still clicking...then replace starter/solenoid together. the solenoid is mounted on the starter.....but they both come when purchasing a new or rebuilt starter .....and a better deal eliminates both problems.....o the starter is located at the flywheel area....GL

Engine won't crank after replacing alternator - battery charged

If the start is not grounded it will not turn over the motor check battery cables going to start. There are no reset switches .
