Question about 1997 Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

I am using a '97 Crown Vic as an enduro race car. The car must be stock, but gutted inside. While stripping the interior, I believe I have cut a wire to a sensor and now the car will not start. I drove it to the shop I'm working in and can't figure out why the car won't start. I have bypassed the fuel shut off switch, but it still won't start. What am I missing?

I took a 01 ford f 150 triton engine and put it in a 97 ford crown victoria and switched all the components over but it's not running right it stall on acceleration then pick up speed I did not switch the...

Yes. You need the ecu that came with that engine. Did you switch intakes? The f 150 4.6 has a taller intake and I believe the stroke is different. I would switch the throttle position sensor too.

Replacing heater core in 98 crown vic

lots of these fasteners the car manufacturers use are pretty cheap..sometimes I use a special 90* set of wirecutters to cut through certain fasteners..they are like a pair of pliers but with a wirecutting head on them..sort of like a mini bolt severe cases I have actually use an angle grinder to cut through it or a sawsall..depending on the room to work..which is usually very may require two people for removal as one needs to be inside and one outside..sorry I wasnt much help here..

We are fixing a crown vic to be a enduro car (racing on dirt track and crashes) we need to strip the whole car. we stripped the whole inside of the car and unplugged wires.. the fuel pump would not come on...

I know I have taken the fuel line off of cars to pump fuel out of tank and it only pumps soon as you turn key on for a couple seconds. And while your cranking it. But keeps pumping while it is running, I think it is the relay that keeps it running. Not positive. Did you hook it up the same as it was? How about the fuel pump cuttoff switch? If you hooked it up to part of the system, like the ignition, but it isnt connected to the computer through another wire that turns the relay on while it is running, then that may be it? Just trying to help. But I know if your racing You should have some sort of cuttoff on it just in case some hatter slams you into the wall and blow up. lol Good luck and have fun

I bought a 2001 Crown Vic Interceptor with everything in it. The horn wont work, though and i did a direct battery connection to a seperate battery and still nothing. fuse problem? and where is the fuse...

When they removed their wig wag and siren from my car, they cut the c.r. ap out of the wires. What a mess! Took a piece of wire (with both ends stripped) to test with... stripped a small area on each wire, and touched the test wire to the bare spot and the battery, until the horn sounded... that is the wire we used. Then, using a push button bought at Auto Zone ran a doubled wire inside the cab, cut it and placed one end on each side of the button... under the hood, one end of the new wire connects to the one that made the horn sound, and the other end of the new wire connects to the battery. Use electrical tape to cover every wire that was shaved, the ones used AND the ones not used. NOT PRETTY... but we have a horn.

Sounds as though you may have done some serious damage to your wring harness,try splicing the wires you cut back together if you know which is which. This may solve it or you may need a new wiring harness, tou may be able to find one from a salvage yard. Good Luck To You

Trying to install a subwoofer on a 97 crown vic

Make sure you are using a 12volt DC system in both units. It may sound simply but an AC sub may need an inverter. Also check grounds.

Crown vic

These things were replaced on my Crown Vic: The crankshaft sensor and the DPFE(?) sensor; the main cause of the missing, cutting out, etc., however, was due to the fact that the #8 coil had gone bad and was fouling the spark plug. I had to take my car to the dealership before the problem with the coil was discovered. They also cleaned my fuel injectors, but I believe the main problem was the coil and the spark plug. Let me know if this helps!! Good luck!
