Question about 1993 Ford Thunderbird
Help! My 1965 T-Bird will not start at all. It will not turn over when I turn the key. There is no clicking when I turn the key to indicate that the car is starting at all there is no sound at all. I have replaced the battery, silnoid, and had the starter tested and it is good but the car will not start. The lights, radio, and windows all work so I know the battery is doing what it shoud. I am at loss. Does anyone have a clue on what the problem may be? I try to drive the car every weekend to keep it lubed.
My e-mail is email@example.com if you can help.
Back up light switch / neutral safety switch. This is located under the dash on the steering column. This part isn't avaliable @ part houses. Splice the purple and black wire together and the red and blue together. Ground the white and black wire(so your back up lights don't on) This should take care of your problem...

You will need to check if power is being supplied to starter solenoid when key is in start position. Do this with a 12 V test light at small wire at starter. If no power, problem is in switch either transmission inhibitor on trans or other supply from key switch.

Mine did the same thing. I did all of the above also but what I found was it was none of those things. First I would try to Move the steering wheel all the way to the right and push the gear selector all the way to the right at the same time try to start the car> I found that mine would work while doing this then I went under the steering column and cleaned the slide bar and lock on the column now works great maybe a ground issue whatever it worked.......GOOD LUCK
