Car drove fine until 10 hours ago, no it won't attempt to crank over

Asked by Apr 02, 2018 at 08:29 PM about the 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

All of the interior lights come on like normal,
everything works electronically inside the car. Just
when I try to start it there is absolutely nothing. Not
even a clicking noise. There was no check engine
light before this happened. How can I troubleshoot
this issue and what could it be? Btw the car has
130,000 miles.

If the battery is 4 years old or older it's time for a replacement.

Its 5 months old

That doesn't mean anything, Have it tested.

Clean the battery terminals, just in case. Do lights dim when trying to start? Starter relay, is another possibility, I think it's underneath, but not sure. Try wiggling the shift, try in neutral, and park. Can you move it out of park? (stop light switch).
