Sounds like a fouled battery or bad connection to the battery.

How to diagnose vehicle will not start. Turn key and makes a click sound heard from dash or under hood.

Sounds like possible low battery. Could also be bad connection in starter switch, but test the battery first. Batteries do get old and don't hold charge. Check charging system, too.

Electrical burnt smell

If you had a short in the starter motor windings and held the key, you'd get a click and a burning smell. That would be the insulation burning off the electrical windings. There's a 40-amp max fuse in this circuit.

With no previous indication, when I turned the ignition key on my 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis, it just limply spun over to the "on" position. The engine test lights came on and would not go out...

Hello, I noticed this post is 6 hours old. If you remember turning the Ignition switch, there is a replaceable core for the key, and the switch housing is what the core goes into. If you did not replace the switch housing you probably have a broken spring in the Ignition housing.

On most Ignition switches you have to set the switch to Run or ACC positions, press a pin release at the bottom of the Ignition housing, and then slide out the core with your key. At any other position, the core should not slide in; if it does it will be out of alignment.

There is also an adjustment on the Ignition switch outer housing. This adjustment lengthens or shortens a connecting rod or cable inside the steering column so that the Interlocks will line up with the switches. The switch below the dash is called a "neutral start" switch which cuts power to the Starter circuit unless the gearshift is in Park or Neutral and the foot is on the brake. All in all this arrangement is an Interlock system.

It sounds like the Ignition switch is out of sequence or has a busted spring. You should be able to take the switch off and take it back to the store and see why the switch does not spring back. Also save a trip and look under the dash at the foot pedal lever and look for a broken switch there too.

The noises you heard were in the Powerbox. Your Ignition switch is not shutting off and the Relays are remaining on and live. You should have a power relay in the Powerbox, but the limp return on the Ignition switch is what is keeping the power on.

I hope my solution will be very helpful in fixing this. Just take the keys, the ignition switch, and get one that has a working spring in it.

Random clicking noise when key is engaged but stops

The sound is a relay switching over when you insert the key and power the vehicles accesories. It is a normal sound, but whatever that relay powers may fail soon. It sounds like the small electromagnet inside won't hold the voltage, hence the clicking sound.

Engine dies while driving.

the noise you heard in the rear was the electric fuel pump working but it sounds like you have an electrical issue check your wire harness for areas that wires chaffed on metal and cause break in the electric current some known areas are inbetween the radiator and the transmission down towards the tranny pan also check fuse panel might have a loose fuse

When the ignition key is turned a clicking noise is heard.

Sounds like a bad ground. If the battery voltage does not drop when the starter is engaged, the starter is not getting the juice. Check the ground connection again. 90%
