1994 mercury grand marquis wont start even with a jump start there is nothing from the starter not even a sound.

I have good lights with freshly replaced terminals and cleaned posts on a six month battery with 658 cold crank amps rating. When I add a jump start I have no sound or movement at all from the starter.

Let's see if it is the solenoid, the starter, or the wiring. Let's start wit the wiring. Hook a small jumper wire to the big, fat terminal where the battery cable attaches to the starter solenoid. Touch it quickly to a ground and see if there is a spark. Better yet, find an old light bulb like a headlight that works, and use that for your tester. You should have juice to that big teminal on the starter. If it does, next go to the small wire on the starter solenoid that comes from the ignition switch. That wire should have juice only when you turn the key to start, no other time.
Supposing both of those do right, that indicates the problem is in the solenoid or starter.
You must remove the starter and dis-assemble it to see what is wrong, unless you choose to replace it with a new or used one.
The two most common causes of your type problem are burnt contacts inside the solenoid,or used-up carbon brushes inside the starter. Sometimes the armature is toasted inside also.
If the solenoid is only medium burnt, I have used sandpaper to clean contacts sometimes. Starter worn parts must be replaced. A shop should be able to test them for you.

SOURCE: 2001 mercury Grand Marquis temp gauge reads cold

Replace the temperature sending unit. Don't confuse it with the coolant sensor, it's the sending unit that's bad.
The sending unit usually has a one wire connection, and the sensor has a two wire connection. I don't have my manual at the moment, so I can't tell you exactly where the unit is.

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on

Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

Will not start. Won't even turn over. I can hear power going to the fuel pump. Checked all relays, fuses and diodes all ok.

Make sure you have juice on the single small wire at the starter when the key is in the start position. If you do then it is probably the starter.

Can't start, ignition hard to turn, can't jump battery

sounds as if when the new transmission was installed it may not be properly shimmed to the starter causing it o either stick or just out of alignment it most likely needs adjustment with a shimming of the starter to the flywheel

Battery shows good, nothing happens when turn

Try to boost the car with another.If that works charge the battery and check the charging system, if it doesn't then you may need a starter.
