Check motor to body ground strap, battery to motor and battery to body ground for corrosion under mounting bolts. Bad ground can cause all kinds of electrical problems. Also your starter or soloinoid could be shorting out.

You will ned a new starter, the windings have shorted and it just draws a lot of current but doesn't spin.

I have a 1994 ford crown victoria I tried to start it the starter turned over a couple of time then stopped like someone turned off a switch I turned on the headlights and tried to start it but nothing...


reach underneath and hit the starter housing a few times with a hammer,if it now works either replace the brushes in the starter which cost about $20.00 ,or replace the starter which costs about $90.00.(parts only for both estimates)

'96 ford Crown Victoria....No hazard or brake light no turn sigal


Sounds like the multifunction switch. Try working the hazard switch up and down a few times to see if you get some lights to work. If so then replace the switch.

'94 Ford Crown Vic Headlights


They are changed from within the engine compartment... at the rear of the headlight bazels... if it's the side on the battery you may have to remove it.... also don't touch the bulbs with your fingers as that shortens the life of them.
