1999 grand Marquis will quit starting randomly without any cranking either. It will start if the car and steering wheel is shaken vigorously while turning the key. Why?


I would guess that one of the wires to the ignition switch or the switch itself is intermittent. Replacing ignition switch will likely fix it.

98 grand marquis that will not start. i know its not the battery or starter, plus i check to see if its getting gas and has a spark. my whole steering wheel assembly has been replaced i wonder if that has...


It likely is the place to start looking. Does the engine crank over but wont start, or nothing from the starter? If nothing, check for power on the small wire at the starter solenoid, when key is held in crank position. If no power, diagnose start wire from ignition switch to the starter solenoid. If power is at the small wire, but no starter action, recheck battery and starter connections, or have the starter tested.
If the starter works, but car won't run, recheck for spark at the sparkplugs. Have the fuel pressure tested-pressure is critical for injectors to work. If you still can't find the problem, your car needs shop time for diagnosis.

WHY CAN'T I SHIFT MY 1997 GRAND MARQUIS OUT OF PARK AND INTO ANY GEAR?


You may have a faulty Break-light switch. If the switch is bad, then it will behave as if you have no breaks afa the shift-lever is concerned.

My car sounds like it wants to start but it won't, we replaced the fuel filter and it sounds exactly like it did before we replaced it, still won't start.


Make sure battery has a full charge.
Try cycling the ignition switch on and off several times before you crank it, to see if it helps. If it helps, check your fuel system. My info says fuel pressure, 35--45 psi.
How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes?

We have the same problem on our 97 Grand Marquis. We have replaced the wiper blades and the drivers wiper arm with a used one. The problem was not completely solved but it did work better. We are going to replace the arm with a new one and see if that works better.
