2003 Mercury Marquis V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 45000 miles
Car will not crank, no sound from fuel pump, and no spark. Jumped the solenoid and it cranked, but no start since there is no spark or fuel pump. Starter is good. Thought maybe the PATS but the light flashes every 2 seconds even while turning the (both) keys to start position. Checked fuses under dash and under hood with ohm meter. Nothing is blown. Exchanged some relays as a test. No difference.
Tried to get a trouble code by hooking up the reader. It says cannot communicate. I was wondering if I am looking at a bad PCM or some other hopefully less expensive problem?
