Question about Ford Thunderbird
1990 Ford Thunderbird (2DR Sedan, 3.8L V6). Doesn't always start when ignition is turned on. Wondering if it is the switch on the brake pedal? (I see two switches) Brake lights are working. Also something seems to be drawing down the battery if it sits for a couple days.
It sounds like your battery isn't holding a charge. Regarding the starting, you may have to replace your starter solenoid. Although many cars do not start if the brake pedal is not depressed, the thunderbird is not one of them. I have one outside in my driveway right now. There are unfortunately, numerous electrical glitches with 89-94 Thunderbirds. I have replaced many many electrical parts for both of mine (a '90 v-6 and a '94 v-8)
