  1. My retired parents bought this 06 new and it now has 197K on the clock. Dad was driving down the road and the engine died. When he tried to crank it, it would not turn over so they had it towed. The anti-theft light is flashing and does not go off, there is 12V to the data connector but neither of my code readers can link to the computer. Used a jumper wire to the starter and the engine turns over just fine. Disconnected the battery about 10 times and left it disconnected up to 7 days this last time. Touched the negative and positive battery cables to drain any ghost capacitor charges. Dealership said it is probably a fuse but all fuses checked OK...both under the hood and under the dash. Removed the ground attached to the car above the battery, scraped paint from the surface, and used a wire brush on the connector AND surface. There is 0 resistance between the metal and the battery ground wire. The car will not shift out of PARK when I press the brake and the ignition is ON. Any help would be great because we cannot afford a dealer visit right now. Thanks, Randel
  2. I have a 1999 XLT with the triton v8. It was running fine other than a bad battery, I had to jump it to start it. It had been sitting for a while due to some bad coil packs and lack of time to work on it. I replaced the coil packs and spark plugs, jumped it and it started no problem, drove it around with no issues. Battery would not hold a charge though. I parked it again for about a week until I could get a battery for it. Put the new battery in and I get a no crank scenario. I put the key in and everything lights up as normal I turn the key and I her it hit the solenoid and it stops there. I read in another forum to check if the headlights go out when you turn the key or if they dim or go out. Mine do nothing when I turn the key, they stay on and bright. It said with this scenario the problem is before the solenoid. Here is what I have done: checked the voltage and confirmed the battery is good checked to see if there is a voltage drop off from the battery terminals replaced the battery terminals checked the solenoid voltage tried to jump it at the solenoid checked the fuses replaced the ignition starter switch checked and cleaned connections. I still am getting only a click at the solenoid. I am frustrated and stumped and wondering if anyone had any ideas or advice. thank you
