The throttle body is basically a single large injector, and it could have burned out its solenoid. It is controlled by a brainbox that uses the distributor input, temp sensor input, throttle position input, etc., so there are many possible problems.
The best way is to let someone put it on a diagnostic machine unfortunately.

Stalling crown vic

Dependent on what year you have. If it has an idle speed motor that could be cleaned as well as the throttle body. Idle speed motor may need to be replaced sometimes a good cleaning hooks them right up.

When i start my vic, it will start right up but immediately die as if it doesnt know how to idle. If i lightly push the gas or hold the throttle open it sounds and runs fine. If i let off of the throttle...

This could be a Vacuum line broke or not installed. I changed fuel injectors on mine and forgot to install one vacuum hose on the Rubber intake near the throttle body, with the same exact symptoms. If you have done any work recently just double check that all the lines and hoses are attached in their correct positions. If you have not done any work recently to is, it may be possible for a hose to break and become detached and not allow it to idle. This is my only experience with these symptoms, hope it helps

1988 crown vic fuel injector harness both contacts lite up

sounds like your PCM might be bad if it is not supplying correct voltage to fuel injector.

Also, the fuel injector itself may be bad or bad ground.

Does it have throttle body injection on that crown vic?

My egr vaulv i dnt knw how to change it on my crown vic

It unbolts from the throttle body and the pipe is screwed into it. But are you sure you need one. They rarely go bad. Usually if you have a check engine light on for the egr valve it is because of a bad DPFE sensor or a plugged passage in the throttle body.

Tune up and clean the throttle plate

Ford is notorius for bad breathing.There EGR system is terrible, it always causes a lot of carbon build up in the throttle plates. The best thing to do, is to take of the throttle body assembly and digg out the carbon thats restricting the air flow. Also, it is a good rule or thumb to clean the throttle plate with carb & throttle cleaner with a tooth brush. Add a bottle of fuel injector cleaner to a full tank of gas. While your doing all this you might as well change the EGR valve. If you follow the air intake pipe from the air filter box, it should lead you to the throttle body assembly. The EGR valve is located on the passenger side by the fire wall underneath the heater hoses and AC lines. Good luck, Ford engineers must have been drinking when they designed their vehicles, they don't make anything easy.
