The batteries on my panterra are charged, yet i turn the key and nothing. Can I by bpass the key?/


Thew red battery cable goes to a relay which engages the starter. When you turn the key the relay should click and engage the starter. If it is a one wire relay pull the wire off and use a screw driver or similar tool to jump form the batter terminal on relay to the bolt like thing the wire was on. This should engage the relay and starter. If it does not then the relay needs to be replaced.

Having problems starting. Have needed to jump solenoid in past. When key is turned nothing happens but the click. When solenoid is jumped it spins but doesn't engage the engine.


The solenoid enables the movable actuator that engages with the fly wheel. If you day it clicks and doesn't engage then you need to replace the starter.

Car won't engage starter


At the starter relay, you have two red or purple wires, one goes to the starter and the other comes from a 30amp fuseable link. Is that fuseable link circuit hot ?
From the key switch, power goes thru the alarm relay, then the clutch safety switch or automatic selector switch, then to the starter relay. The fourth wire on the starter relay is a ground.
You should be able to put power to the starter relay on the white or yellow wire coming from the safety switch to make the relay engage.
My guess is something wrong with the alarm system.

Good battery, key will not engage starter, jumping starter will not engage drive


jumping across the solenoid will spin the starter but will not engage the pinion in the ring gear. Have a load test done on the battery as I suspect that there is a bad cell and you are not getting a full charge. If the battery is faulty then there is always enough power to turn on dash lights but nothing left to run the high current solenoid and starter.

My 92 lincoln town car will not start i have replaced the starter, the neutral safety switch and the battery but when i turn key nothing happens but can jump starter and will crank


Yes there is a starter relay in the wiring diagram.
The yellow and lite blue wire goes from the starter solenoid to the relay. There is a yellow wire from the relay to a 30amp fuse. The key switch powers thru the neutral safety switch and then powers the relay on.
