Question about 1997 Ford Crown Victoria
Stater turns all the way from the off postition to the start without catching anything. The radio is stuck on but the stater wont turn the car over.
I don't understand what you are trying to say. If the key turns all the way to start and nothing happens, you probably have an ignition switch failure

The ignition coil can't do what you describe.
It almost sounds as if you have some broken teeth on the flywheel that the starter engages.
I would remove the starter, loosen or remove the spark plugs to relieve compression, then have someone turn the engine byhand while peering into the bellhousing with a flashlight where the starter mounts and inspect the flywheel for damage.
With a tooth (or more) worn or broken off, when the Bendix throws the starter gear forward, it may be landing on top of a broken tooth, slipping off, then turning your engine over.
There may be enough tooth even if broken, to stay engaged once the starter has meshed.
