93 tbird wont turn over new battery, starter, relays and ignition switch

Asked by Aug 03, 2016 at 03:56 PM about the 1993 Ford Thunderbird

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my 93 tbird 5.0 automatic started to die on occasions but depending if youre in town or not it would kick back on. But if in town would die then start up 15-20 minutes later like it overheated. (this all happened with my girl driving it) I checked fluids was a bit low on coolant nothing dramatic. same with oil it was a tad under full. well now the car doesn't start at all. so I changed the ignition switch (brand new) by air filter and swapped relays from my other tbird and starter. I could jump it from solenoid to battery when I was bringing it back from her work but now I cant even get that to pull it into the shop. what could be the issue??
