Turning the key to on causes current to flow to light power draws like the fuel pump, ignition, etc.
But turning the key to start, causes 10 times that amount of current to go to the starter.
So one possibility is that the battery is weak, the battery terminals are dirty, etc., and you just don't have enough current.
But another possibility is that the starter is drawing far more current than it should, from something like an internal short, a frozen engine, etc.

Check your ignition fuse first. Make sure that the terminals are cleaned and you have a good connection and you see no damage. If that all checks out, including fully charged battery, it probably is your starter. Sometimes a starter can be cleaned out or tapped on, and it will start. You could try that.

ABSOLUTE SOLUTION: Go on eBay and buy an anti-theft bypass module for $10-$20 depending on the year,make and model of your vehicle. This is a job that you can do yourself.

It is a BOO, Brake On Off switch. Most part stores just call it a brake light switch. If you have one switch on the pedal and you have cruise control, the switch does both jobs. Most cars have two switches though, one for cruise and the other for the brake lights. The one for the brake lights is usually just two wires.

First of all, there should be a light that comes on if a component is not working. If you wish to physically test them, you'll need to find a safe place for a stopping test. Wet roads or grassy areas would work best. You'll need to 'slam' on the brakes to lock them up. If your car's abs system is working, your car will stop in a straight line. If you go sideways, they aren't working. NOTE: this is not the recommended way to test...but also a true test. If you came to my shop, we'd scan your system for an abs code. That's the safest way.

Yes, you fill through the dipstick tube. There are flexible funnels that fit nicely into the tube available at most auto parts stores

I had an 89 Thunderbird. Problem seemed to be the brake light switch. Easily replaced by yourself, about $50. from Ford, probably cheaper from an Auto Parts store

I had a very similar problem in my 93 town car. I ended up changing the Calipers, rotors, and pads. This stopped the grabbing, but still every once and a while the ABS light would come on and grip the brakes on me. I ended up pulling the ABS relay from under the hood.and the problem has stayed away. The only thing is that now i dont ABS brakes. Its a heavy car tho and i havent had an issue yet. Also, if you decide to do this, the relay way mis marked in my car, when i pulled the ABS relay, the Air shocks went out instead. Had to pull one at a time until the anti lock light came on, then i knew i had it.

I can't think of any A/C parts for a 1996 towncar that are obsolete. Can you find out what the name of it is or post a pic of it so I can tell you what it is?
