If no power to primary circuit that feed PCM, vehicle cranks but no start. Check PCM relay in fuse box under hood. Relay failure caused intermittent stalling and miss, then complete shut down. $11.00 fix, swap relay with A/C relay to test relay condition.

Under the hood are 2 fuel shut-off sensors: one near the battery and the other on the driver side wheel cowling (black boxes). If these were jolted in any way, your fuel pump is shut down. In the trunk on the driver side sidewall there's a switch to turn the pump back on.

IF you replaced the LF fender....did you reattach the 2 wires near the hood hinge that fascinate to the inner wall of the fender? I tried to move the car before completing the reassembly...crank-no- start....until I reattached those 2 wires.

I have a 2000 crown Victoria that won't start. It spins over but won't crank up. I tired pulling a code reader on it and I'm not getting any power to the ECM. I even bought a new computer and it still does that same thing. I changed the crank sensor as well. Yes everything fuse is good under the hood and under the dash. If anybody has a clue what u think it is please let me know.

91Charlie, Try changing the ignition control module. hope this helps.
