Question about 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis

Couldn't Turn off my 96 Grand Marquis

Got to work and couldn't turn the car off. The key would turn all the way back but didn't seem like it caught anything to turn off the car. I can start the car but I had to remove the battery cable to stop the car. When i reconnect the battery, all the terminal lights stay on as if I'm starting up the car. Needin some help.

Seems your ignition swith has come disconected from the key switch. The actual swith is not the key. The key links to a switch on top of the steering column down around the pedals. Or the switch itself is broken free. The switch is replaceable although a pain to access. No need to pull out the steering column. Good luck.

    I have the same problem but the plastic part with the hole in which the switch is inserted into does not slide back and forth when the key is turned.

My brother wrecked his 96 grand marquis ls and I was wondering if I could use his fob transmitter on my 96 grand marquis ls can this work?


You could try it, but I'm going to about 99.5% guaruntee it won't work, for programming reasons. HOWEVER, if you replace the computer/receiver unit out of your brother's Grand Marquis LS, it ought to work very well. Hope it works well!

Just wondering how often should change the air filter in a 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis. How can I obtain a Maintenance Schedule and Record Booklet?


Here's a url for Ford owners:-

http://owner.ford.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=Owner/Page/OwnerGuidePage&year=1997&make=Mercury&model=Grand%20Marquis

Trouble is, I couldn't get the downloads from the site, maybe you have to enroll. But you could also use their "Contact us" link for help.

I'd change an air filter about once a year, more if in dusty/dry conditions. First clue, have a look at it, if its dirty, change it.

Left rear turn signal and brake light not working. fuse is good, bulb is good. back-up lights work.


I have a 2007 Chevy Express with the same problem. Just happened. Brake and turn signal not working on left side. Fuses good, bulbs good (dual element lamp, turn signal and break are same element) running lights work (other element) Relay blinks fast and not getting voltage at light for blinker or brake. Is there something else in the circuit I need to check. Took it to an ASE mechanic and he couldn't or didn't want to fix it. THANKS Let you know if I fix it tomorrow.
