1993 Mercury Grand Marquis

My 1993 Mercury Grand Marquis sometimes fails to start (like dead, but lights work) jumper cables do not help. I have paid for 3 wreckers to take my car to Ford and it always starts after Ford gets it. It has new battery and new power cables. Can you suggest other possible solutions, than anti-theft prob?

    Ford did that on first visit and also replaced something called a fuse wire. Thanks for suggestion. I thought it had something to do with anti-theft OEM, but most on blog say no way.

    I have a 1993 Grand Marquis & my car will not drive forward but its fine going backwards. I had some work done on it & it worked for about 10 days before it went back to not driving forward. Is there anything i can do/check to get it going before taking it to another repair shop? It did pull forward a little today but it was in drive 2.

    ok its on your steering column it the ignition switch some the gear the ignition rides on,its skipping so sometymes when your turning the key its nut pushing the guide pin far enough forward,its like not turning the key all the way,if you take off the top cover of your steering column youll see right away its should be held on by two bolts grab one from a junk yard ,if you want to check before you pull the switch off just turn the key when it doesnt start just push the pin forward more with a screwdriver,just remember to let go when it starts you dont want to damage the starter

1996 Mercury Grand Marquis wipers don't work. I changed the motor and the fuse isn't blown


You need to take the plastic cowls off that cover the wiper arm linkage and wiper transmission to inspect it...cowl is held on with 3 Phillips screws near windshield and some one inch wide metal clips, take off the gasket that fits on top. If both are not working check the transmission where linkages attach, if one wiper blade is not working it is usually the drivers side where the nylon bushing that forns a ball/socket sort of connection fails due to build up of debris and the rusting of parts that follows, let me know if this helps.

Will the car start when someone jumps it off with another car?
If so a dead battery or dirty terminals is more suspect than the alternator.
