I read through several postings on the Crown Vic that turned would not
turn over. I have a 97 Crown Vic and currently started experiencing
that problem this morning. It happened out of nowhere. Everything I
read tended to point to the solenoid. I jumped the car and it started
fine but when I disconnected the cables, the Crown Vic died. Could
this be caused by a bad solenoid? I recently had a similar problem with
my 94 F-150, but found it to be a corrosion in positive cable and
replaced. I also checked the battery and although it read 12.5 volts I
put it on a trickle charge which I'm waiting for it to charge.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated as this is the only problem I've
had with the car which has 180,000 plus miles on it. I'd hate to shoot
it because of this little problem.
Thanks in advance,
