Having problems with your 1986 Mercury Grand Marquis ?
I try to start the car and all I get is vibration sound coming from the solenoid. I have tried the old trick when you put the key in the on position and touch a screw driver to the post on the solenoid, but I still get nothing. Is my solenoid bad, or is my starter bad?
If you have a second vehicle, or a ride, you can take the starter to Autozone where they can test it for you to tell you if your whole starter motor is bad. I'm not sure if you can get just the solenoid, if so, you might ask them about it. I imagine if the solenoid was bad, it would fail the test for the starter motor as well.
