Question about 1990 Lincoln Town Car
Ground the motor and the body
Posted on Apr 18, 2015
Try turning over the engine with a wrench, manually. It might be seizing up.
First try to turn the engine over manually. If that's ok then try this:
While you're trying to start the car, have someone bang on the starter, under the car, not too hard. This will usually un-jam the pinion gear and it will turn over.
I had to do that and it worked great. Then i Just washed the tip of the pinion gear in a cleaner and it's worked now for 15 years.
Hope this is not it.

SOURCE: Starter fails to start.
I'm having the same problem. The dealership keeps telling me it's the starter. I've replaced starter and still have the same problem. I have had all the wiring and new key swith put in and still have the same problem. I guess were in the same boat!!!

A solenoid needs so much power to kick in. I think your battery is getting old and not at full capacity. Hove it check and replace if needed.

I don't believe there is a relay. Is the shift lever in park or neutral? Have you tried jiggling the shift lever? Check to see if you are getting power from one of the wires that go to the small terminals on the solenoid when the key is turned to start. If not, I suspect the neutral safety switch or the key switch.

your barking up the wrong gum tree witht the starter motor ,you have an electrical supply problem on the battery terminal area with more than one wire connected or a dodgy earth cable from the engine to the chassis .i would be inclined to check and fit another earth cable from a good connection on the engine -(bell housing) and run it back to battery terminal to eliminate all posibilitys .before anything else ,make you own if you have to but only use copper cable .this is my last question for tonight ,have to go pick er indoors up from work now
