My towncar will not crank. The solenoid isnt getting 12volts when the key is turned.
The problem came without warning on the road and I had to tow it home.
I ahve the start switch in my hand after getting it out. WHat pins would I look for a short on? or...is it something else?

I have a 90 town car 5.0. I changed the fuel pump. Put gas in the tank ( eight gals), kicked it over and it ran. Tried to start it later and it would not.The dashboard indicated E. Sprayed some starter, it attempted to kick, but would not. Am I over looking something?

#14 of 16 Starting problem - 89 TC
Nov 01, 2010 (7:52 pm)
Have '89 TC with 254K+ miles. Was starting fine, then one day just refused to start. Replaced fuel filter, fuel pump relay, fuel pump, fuel safety cutoff switch, ignition control module. Mobile mechanic stated after doing all this it is getting fuel and spark - "just change the spark plugs & I guarantee it will start". It doesn't. It turns over, just won't catch. My wife has back problem and is in major pain riding in my '94 Explorer. Any ideas (or decent mobile mechanic in Houston) appreciated.

I have a 99 tc and started having the same problem/symptoms. Dealer found a bad IAC valve asy. Its located on top of engine right behind the big air intake hose near the fire wall. Dealer charged $188 plus labor, You can probably do it your self for much less. Good Luck...
#16 of 16 2000 tc intermitten starting problem

Heres how it starts, the car starts fine, but I have dotted lines on the computer for gas mileage and distance to empty. The next time I go to start car, it sometimes will not start. If the gm and dte are working, there seems to be no starting problems. Could these be related to the Crank sensor? also forgot, the first time it did this, after I got it to start the overdrive off light was flashing on the dash.
