Question about 1994 Mercury Grand Marquis

4 Answers

My 1994 Grand Marquis will not start! This is an ongoing issue!!! In the last year I have replaced the battery, the altenator, the starter and had other minor repairs. Now it's back to not starting, it does NOT turn over, or make any effort to do so, it could not be jumped, and the battery could not be charged up enough to use. I got yet another BRAND NEW battery and it still will not make an effort to start? What is going on?

    I can't find the starter solenoid? Is it under the fusebox?

  • starrbright4 Jul 26, 2009

    Yes both cables have been replaced. The other electrical functions worked for about a week after the car died, then there was no power left in the battery. After getting a brand new battery, lights and stuff were working again, but I had to unhook the new battery because it started getting very heated!

    I wish...that doesn't work! It refused to try to turn over!

  • starrbright4 Jul 26, 2009

    No. Before it completely drained the last battery i would get the ding from my door being open. As for when i try to start it, no. It's dead silence!

  • starrbright4 Jul 26, 2009

    Well, this is week 2 with no vehicle, not something that happened this morning. Before it died for good this time though, it did give me trouble starting the night before it quit completely! Almost like it was fighting to start, and once it did it was almost weak. It didn't make the rrrrr...rrrrrr noise, but it took a couple of seconds too long to catch, and then it was almost like i had a wimpy engine, it didn't feel as strong as it usually does.

    Can anyone tell me how to find my starter solenoid? some one said passenger side fender, I looked, I see my fuse box, and another little box with wires coming out, but my neighbor said that's not it. Even though he can't find it either!!!

    Have you tried pushing harder on brake pedal, as well as moving shifter through gears while holding in start position to see if any kick from starter at all?

Sounds like you have a major short in your primary circuit somewhere if your battery is over heating. As far as the location of your starter solenoid..it is on the starter itself.

If its on the fender it will be about two and a half inches tall and a inch and a half wide round with two lugs coming off of it. If you dont see anything resembling that, crawl under and try tapping it while someone tries to start it.

If its not on the driver side fender then its got to be on the starter. You will need to get under the car and remove the starter. Easy to do, just a tight squeeze. Another issue could be that the starter is froze up. You can try to tap it with a hammer while someone tries to start it 1st. Dont give up. Good luck

Follow your + battery cable, it should go from battery to solenoid if it's not part of the starter.

Looks like your starter motor brushes to warn don too much, you can either pull it apart yourself to try and fix it or take it to a auto electrician.

Remove the cable going to the starter and clean it with a brush along with contact point on starter and the nut. Reassemble and enjoy your car. (Starter rarely needs replacing - if it does two additional bolts hold it in place for easy swapping.)

Car wont start, starter is trying to turn over but can't do it


You may have a drain on the battery as well as trying to start the engine. You could try jumping a feed to the starter solenoid and see if it is more willing than usual. If it is - find the short. If not, it could be time for a new starter solenoid. They do get worn and covered in soot internally, and therefore make poor connection.
