Asked by Jul 25, 2016 at 10:28 AM about the 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis GS

Question type: General

I have a 2000 mercury grand marquis gs.
The problem that i am having is that my car
will not turn over using my ignition. 1st as
the turn the key it makes NO NOISE AT ALL
but my dash is the only thing that lights up.
The way im going in order to crank the car
up i have a wire going to the starter from the
inside of my car connected to a button that i
push for the car to turn over. My question is
what exactly can the problem be? Is the
starter going bad? Can it be the ignition
switch itself? I've check my alternator by
talking the power cord of the battrey but it
never cut off

It sounds like the ignition switch but try this first but vehicle in neutral and try to start if vehicle starts nuteral safety switch needs to be adjusted or replaced.

Also try a spare key if you have one. The passive anti theft system may also keep it from starting.
