Question about 1990 Ford Thunderbird
Car was running fine the other day. I got in yesterday and all dash lights came on as usual when trying to start but engine doesn't turn at all.
I checked the battery and noticed a lot of corrosion so, since it was time for a new battery any way, I got a new battery, cables and even a new starter relay. Guess what...same problem exists. Should I be looking at my ignition module and/or starter motor. I'm inclined to think(HOPE) it's not the starter becarse it's been my experience that they usually show some signs that they're about to go out such as dragging, fly wheel grinding, spinning without engaging the fly wheel etc. Any suggestions?
That happend to me also and it turned out to be a crappy alternator, i have to tap on it and have someone turn it over at the same time for it to start

I had the same thing happen to me, car was running fine when I parked it the day before but the next morning all the electrical was working fine it just would not turn over. It turned out to be a bad Crankshaft Position Sensor.
