Question about 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis
Look under the car at the Starter. If you just have the main heavy gauge cable going to the Starter, the answer is no. The Starter is spinning and the Bendix drive is bad.
If you have Solenoid wires in addition to the heavy cable at the Starter, you can try to jump the Solenoid under the car at the Starter. If the secondary wires (small) are not providing power to the magnet that throws out the Bendix, jumping power to the magnet will make the Bendix work. You do not want the Bendix to stay engaged or you will damage the Flywheel or burn up the Starter. You might as well check the Secondary (small) wires for corrosion because the problem is outside the Starter.
If the contacts for the magnet inside the Starter are burnt, jumping the Terminals will do nothing.
