Check the neutral safty switch, if this is bad it will not start in park. put it ineutral and see if it starts. if so switch is bad. also the vehicles made lately have a switch in back of brake pedal witch means brake has to be pressed to start car. check safety switch first.

Stop 2006 Ford crown vic fro m beeping


Austin Parker... hello,

When car electronics DECDE to act strangely... it is ALWAYS a good time to check for BATTERY TERMINAL corrosion...
(If you are not comfortable playing with highly corrosive materials... IT'S SERVICE STATION TIME.

So...
You have removed the key... The car is fully in PARK...
BRAKES applied... Lights all turned off... (no lights on dash?).

Repeat your last exit cycle...

Get back in start the car... Make sure everything functions as normal Set your brake... Park, off the lights (everything)...

Put it in gear...

Still beeping... (write down your radio settings)

Time to do a Bill Gates... (hard power cycle)
Disconnect your negative battery lead
and take a 10 minute break...

Reconnect battery... start car & park it again... OK?

ELSE...

If it resumes beeping it will be time to beg, borrow or buy that OBD Reader you always wanted any-way!

HOPE this helps

My Deville runs great and has only 70,000 original miles. I parked it tonight. When I went to re-start it, my key would not turn the ignition switch. The car is in park. I have tried putting foot on brake...


GM uses a Passkey system - your ignition system recognizes any key that is specially coded to your vehicle. If the key you are using is not the key for your vehicle, or your key is damaged, or the vehicle Passkey system is not working properly, the key will not turn. You should have at least three keys for this vehicle - two regular keys and a valet one. If all of them won't work, the problem is in the steering column. If you only have one key, take it and the vin number from your car to a GM dealer and get them to cut a new one and try that. If that doesn't work, you may have to get the car to a dealer for repair. You can also check for an ignition switch recall for your car, but that's a long shot.

How to find an electrical disturbance in 1998 ford expedition


Normally this condition is the result of a poor body ground connection. Testing for this can be deceiving. At the static(nothing on) condition, testing can show a good ground. However when a circuit is excited, it has a determined resistance and a set current flow. If the ground connection to this or a branch circuit is loose, corroded, or broken wire. This will allow just enough connection to show as being good, but not good enough to complete the circuit with the required amount of connection when energized.

What to look for? why is this electrical system malfuntioning?


Well that kind of sounds like a bad connection, but it was difficult understanding with no good punctuation... Have you checked the battery terminals? If not, do so, and have your alternator checked too. I've seen some really goofy stuff happen when some vehicles don't get enough power.

It wont start turn key dash lights up nothing happens


sounds like a dead battery to start with. Not even enough juice in the battery to energize the solenoid / brake interlock to get it out of PARK. Hope this helps
