Hi, my father's 1986 Mercury Grand Marquis will not start. He replaced the coil already.
Over the phone he told me that he replaced the"box" that the coil wire from the distributor cap goes into. I looked online and the coil is in a square shape.
Ok so I had him take the coil wire off of the dist. Cap, run a peice of wire to it and hold on to it while he turned the key.
He did not get shocked, therefore there is no spark coming from the coil.
What else could the problem be? I am not familiar with Ford much and he is stranded where he lives in WV and I am diagnosing via phone from NC.
Thanks in advance for any help! Happy Holidays
have the same problem?
