Question about Mercury Grand Marquis

1 Answer

My 94 Grand Marquis will not start. I recently replaced the battery within the last month, prior to that I replaced the alternator within the last 4 years. When I jumped the car, it fired right up so I drove it around for a 1/2 hr, hoping the alternator would charge the battery. When I returned home and turned the car off, I went to start it and it made a click and wouldn't start. Any idea or information would be greatly appreciated.

Look for loose connections on and from the battery---dirty /corroded earth etc.. PUll the starter and have a bench test done to find faults.

It could possibly be the starter, but before you get that far make sure the Battery cables are connected very tight. If loose the car won't start or do anything. Also make sure the battery cable is grounded.

The fact that a jump made the thing work really rules out starter and solenoid. If you got a clicking but no start, then a jump fixed the problem, there are really only 2 possible causes. Since the first is a dead battery and you have said the battery was fine, then it has to be the second, which is a poor connection between one of the leads and the battery. Sometimes, oxidisation builds up under the connector and this will cause the connection to fail although it looks good. Clamping jump leads to the connector probably disturbed it and made the connection good again. Remove each cable clamp, clean battery connector and the clamp on the cable thoroughly with emery cloth and reconnect, As you're doing this, also check that the connections that hold the cable into the clamp are good and tight and have no corrosion.

REMEMBER that if you disconnect your battery, you may loose the security code to your radio/CD. An easy way to avoid this is jump onto the cable connectors from another battery (Like you were jump starting it) so that the power to the radio is maintained during the procedure.

Agreed, you can do one of two things. Replace the alternator, or get some new brushes and try out your soldering skills. Good luck.

Where is the fuse for the fuel pump on a 94 grand marquis


There appear to be 2 fuses that can affect the fuel pump. #8 which provides power for the fuel pump, and #4 which provides power for the fuel pump relay. Both of these fuses are in the High Current fuse panel, which is located in the engine compartment near the battery.

The warning in the owners manual states: Always disconnect the battery before servicing high current fuses.Ford recommends that high current fuses be replaced by a qualified technician.

A ford needs a fully charged battery to work the alternator. You may burn out the replacement alternator by hooking it up to a dead battery. Get the battery charged and have it load tested. You may have a bad battery and it should be checked. http://www.cardone.com/english/club/select/electrical/protech/tech_bulletins/PT37-0006.pdf

Good engine swap for a 94 grand grand marquis


Another 4.6 out of a '94 Grand Marquis. If you can. That way all the sensors will be correct and the wiring harness will plug-and-play. You can install almost any 4.6 but, depending on the year, there's going to be a lot of issues making them work with the electronics in your '94 Marquis.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Alternator issues?


have the alternator regulator and diodes tested. sometimes when the regulators fail they allow ac voltage to go to the battery. ac voltage doesn't charge the battery properly (causes it to deep cycle and shortens its life) and causes all sorts of funny problems with the car. also make sure the battery is secured properly, vibration isn't good for them at all.
