MERCURY MARQUIS

1996 Ford 500 • V8 FWD Automatic • 150,000 miles

I went out to start my car yesterday and it wouldn't start. It don't make any noise at all when I turn the key (other than the whirring sound of the fuel pump which is fine). The battery is fully charged. I'm trying a process of elimination to find out the problem. First I want to check the starter. Where is the starter located for a 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis 4.6L V-8 engine? Also, if you have any other thoughts, suggestions and ideas I'd welcome them all. Thanks in advance. (Note: The starter never gave any indication that it was on it's way out). P.S. Can I cross the cellunoid with a long screwdriver to see if it will start?

Yes you can cross solenoid to test starter. You cross the small post to the hot from battery post. This simulates the key ignition voltage.
