If you turn the key and nothing happens, perhaps it's in the PATS system
(coded key) signal not being received by the computer... Possibly worst
case though, and I don't know what the fix would be...
Definately make sure your battery terminals are clean though...
neutral safety switch, ignition switch, not sure how the starter gets it
power but have seen a number of bad/broken connections in other vehicles.
try starting it in neutral rather than park. if it was your battery you
would lose your radio presets also battery would not charge with bad
Well I had the same problem my car would not start at all after a 4 hr.
battery charge. I took the car to Discount auto to run a test on the battery
and the battery said good. Next step was to run a wire from the positive
terminal to the starter relay. Wow the car started. Next I had to figure out
wheter it was the igntion switch or the neutral switch. I took out the
igniation switch and examinied it it looked okay. Next I located the neutral
switch and pulled it off. I notice it had cracks on the bottom side. I took
it to the ford dealer and they had one for the low price on 100.oo yikes and
what a chance did I take because they do not take returns on electrical
parts. I put it in and the car started great. Hope this helps! I can send a
few digital pictures but i dont know if its the same location I have a 1990
Taurus and it does a great job of keeping my tools from rusting. LOL
