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

SOURCE: Won't start. Starter is good. 99 Crown Vic

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.

SOURCE: 2000 FORD CROWN VIC GETTING POWER TO STARTER ,BATTERY FULL CHARGE CAR WONT TURN OVER

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.

SOURCE: crown vic 2000 wont crank ? battery, alternator,starter,starter relay all good ?

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.

I have a crown vic 1998 my car was driving fine i was going to go to the store my car didnt turn on i open my hood i try to turn it on all i hear was i think the starter but the crazy thing is the band...


So you think you could hear the starter spin but the "band" did not turn? I suppose you mean the serpentine belt did not turn. It is quite possible for the starter to spin but the bendix to fail to engage the flywheel. This can be caused by low battery charge, bad battery connections, or more commonly, a bad starter.

1999 Crown turned ignition switch to start - heard pop - no electrical power


If nothing works including the lights, something happened between the battery and the fuse box.
There are some fuseable links between the battery and the starter solenoid or between the solenoid and the fuse box.
I'd start with the battery cables and look for those fuseable link wires.

99 crown vic wont crank when i turn the key battery good


Turn key to the run positio, Press on your brake and run your shifter through the gears a couple opf imes then try starting in neutral. This is for the benefit f the neutral safety switch. If still nothing , Raise the hood and and check the battery for a bad or corroded connection. If all is good, make sure car is in park. There is on the driverside fenderwell a relay that looks like a mine Roun With two small terminals and tw large terinals o opposite ides.. When you turn to crank, you put cirrent to one of the small ter minals and that causes the two large battery cables to connect and give power to the starter. If you can jump the battery side cable and the starter side post the starter will crank if nothing is wrong withe the starter.the two large posts. Use a jumper cable,NOT a coat hanger, iF THE STARTER SPINS THEN START IT WITH THE KEY. Good Luck.. Any more help let me know.

i have a 1999 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. you have a short in your wiring harness leading to your battery. this happens every time with these cars, good battery-good starter-good alternator but car still wont turn over because the power from the battery isnt able go directly to the motor. check your relay circuits and harness.
