Question about 1998 Ford Crown Victoria
The car does nothing when trying to start.sombody says it may be starter, but is there anything else it could be.
Check both battery terminels for corrosion and that they are tight, check earth to bodywork, also check earth from engine to bodywork.

Assume you have at least a 302 v8. Your starter soinoid is probably the problem. Starter should be located under the car near the rear of the engine/ transmission bellhousing on the passenger side. I think it is the two bolt starter with the ford electrical connection that has to be pushed off. Starter is around the size of a tomato or fruit juice size can, is round with large electrical wire as well as small wires going to it. It is vertical, orientated front to back. If you have the proper tools - sockets, rachet, extension, etc as well as jack stands and blocks, you should be able to change the starter with the soinoid.. Make sure you unhook the battery first. A trouble light will also be helpful to see what you are unhooking, etc. Have your starter checked like autozone to see if it really is bad before you buy a new one, because its probably the soinoid. Hope this helps you, Rick

If the battery is good,have it checked,then the cables,or there connections are bad,make sure the connections are shiny clean,on the battery post,and the cable ends,side post connections on battery need to be clean also.If the connections are clean,like this,then the cables are bad,either ground,or positive,or both.When trying to crank the engine,while it is being turned over,feel of both cables,witch ever one heats up,is bad.You may have to remove fuel pump fuse to keep it from starting,so that you can do this test.

I would check for voltage at the starter from the battery and from the key switch via the neutral safety switch.
If there is no voltage at the starter from the battery check the fuseable link wires and the ground connections.

The problem is in the wiring harness,yes the battery and starter is good, the harness you repaired is the PRNDL. for the starter to start it need a path when the vehicle is Park or Nuetral,there the path is closed some how by Park and Nuetral the path is open.Thats why there is a no start.when in park or nuetral the path is closed.
