If the spark plug wiring is not correct, the engine will misfire and that will create erratic combustion, which is a shock to the cylinder, which results in a load harsh noise. Locate the number 1 spark plug wire on the distributor cap and trace each wire to the spark plugs. The firing order will be listed on the intake manifold. Make the correct wire to spark plugs attachments as needed.

The condenser unfortunately must be replaced from under the car, so the job is best left to a shop with a car lift.

You haven't given enough info to diagnose the problem. Did the car die while idling? Could it be restarted? Will it run if you keep your foot on the gas pedal? Etc...

I just had this same thing happen with my Ford Taurus, and it turned out to be a bad key. The repair shop switched back and forth between two different keys we had with us 10 or 12 times, and it always started with the good key, never with the "bad" key. They said if the theft light is flashing quickly, that means the anti-theft system is engaging. If the anti-theft light just lights up, that is normal.

Inspection and Verification
NOTE: If any concerns are noted with the speedometer, stoplamps, or horn, address those concerns by referring to the appropriate sections before continuing speed control diagnosis.
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the speed control system.
  1. NOTE: Any aftermarket modifications, including but not limited to those listed below, may cause the speed control to not operate correctly:
    • Any wiring or lamp modifications affecting the brake lamp operation
    • LED brake lamps
    • Non-factory installed trailer wiring
    • Radios (speed sensitive, auto mute)
    • Remote starters and alarms
    • Lighting and electrical accessory modifications
    Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical or electrical damage:
    • Visually inspect the speed control actuator and accelerator controls.
    • Visually inspect the speed control cable without removing it and ensure smooth cable operation. Inspect the speed control cable connection to the throttle body.
    • Visually inspect the accelerator cable without removing it and ensure smooth cable operation. Inspect the accelerator cable connection to the throttle body. Also check for cable interference with the carpet, bulkhead grommet, insulation and instrument panel wiring.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.


Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Speed control actuator cable
  • Throttle linkage
  • Battery junction box (BJB) fuse(s):
    • 4 (40A)
    • 12 (60A)
  • Smart junction box (SJB) fuses:
    • 14 (15A)
    • 57 (10A)
  • Wiring harness
  • Loose or corroded connections
  • Deactivator switch
  • Brake pedal position (BPP) switch
  • Speed control switches
  • Powertrain control module (PCM)
  • Speed control actuator
  • Bulb

  1. If the fault is not visually evident, go to the Self-Test Diagnostics.

You need to know how it works before you can diagnose it. There is a starter relay in the under hood fuse/relay box .. This relay is controlled by the PCM - engine computer . Does you car have a anti-theft system ? a red light on top of the dash or a SECURITY light on instrument cluster ? Is the red light flashing fast when trying to start the car . If you find an pull the relay out an look on the bottom you will or should see four numbers . 30 & 87 , 85 & 86. You can test from the socket where the relay plugs in . PIN'S 87 & 85 should have B+ voltage . PIN 30 takes voltage from PIN 87 to start the vehicle , PIN 86 is the control from the engine computer . The PCM gives a ground on this circuit to energize the relay closing the contacts inside ,completing the circuit between B+ voltage on PIN 87 to PIN 30 to start the car.
