Having problems with your 1999 Ford Crown Victoria ?
1997 Crown Victoria, 4.6L V8 engine Starter has been "dragging". Usually have to jump the engine to get it to start, and the starter still "drags", barely cranking over. It will start, eventually, or did. Now the engine won't even turn over, but the battery is brand new, and I had the battery and alternator tested and they were charging just fine. Was told by someone at an autoparts store to manually connect the starter via a screwdriver on the starter solenoid, connecting two bolts. Nothing hap
Your contacts on the battery cable have to be dirty, starter too. Pull those cables off and scrub them good with a knife and wire brush, even underneath where the wire attaches to the terminal, If it comes off, if not just the terminal and the battery, if the battery is good, It should crank, If it is dirty, it won't. I have cleaned terminals real clean and thought they would be fine and it still wouldn't start, had to do it again, this time I got it clean. Also check the voltage, has to be 13 volts or more, and then if you have one of those floaty ball testers, use it, it can tell you a lot about your battery. Check it out, hope this helps.
