    How do you know the battery is good? Did you have it tested? A battery will bleed off just sitting, cold weather will cause a battery to bleed off faster than normal.

    I charged the battery over night and still had the same problem. I then used jumper cables attached to another running vehicle and still wont turn over.

The starter is probably just hung up, I would recommend that you gently tap on it with a rubber mallet, or the wooden end of a hammer.

    Thank you, where is the starter on this vehicle?

    It should be located on the same side of the vehicle that the battery is on, if you are unsure, you can simply follow the positive battery cable, and it should lead you to the starter, which will be located by the bell housing of the transmission where it meets the engine.

Have a 2002 merc marquis seems to be missing when excelerating until about 47mph then it smooths out , plugs , fuel filter ?


They had issues with the intake manifold leaking air, this can cause a miss, but i would start with plugs and wires. don't worry to much on a fuel filter at this point.

I have a 97 marquis and the headlights wont turn off whether the car is on or off and its killing my battery


Until you get as fix, unhook one of the battery cables each time you
stop the car, and hook it up again when you are ready to go somewhere. Sounds like it might be a broken headlight switch.

2002 merc grand marquis wont start battery was replaced 1 week ago


Does it not start or not crank ?
If it does not start, you will need to figure out if it is a lack of fuel to the injectors or lack of spark to the plugs to proceed.

1987 Merc Grand Marquis, saving as "collector" car, last ran 6 months ago. Will start, run for 3-10 seconds, then runs out of gas and stalls. Will not start again unless sits for 15 miutes or so. It is...


You need to attach a pressure gauge to the schrader valve and measure the fuel pressure with the key on and also while running. You need to see about 40 lbs in both cases.

I have a 98 Mercury Grand Marquis. Won't start


Check in the trunk and push the button on the Inertia switch. It should be on the drivers side of the trunk.

If this does not help, get a fuel filter and change it. If you can possibly get a fuel sample from the disconnected gas lines do it.

The new 10% gasohol will separate if it stands a few months. You may need to add fresh gas with a drying chemical like "Heet".

If you still have flasher problems, I read on Google to spray WD-40 down in and around the hazzard flasher button, then press it up and down several times...and BINGO...all flashers and signals worked again....just had some dirt and dust in the wiring....
