All the way in gear? brake safety switch? Check the cruise control shutoff switch on the master cylinder.

65 Mustang C-code 3 spd Coupe- project for my son
I tried it in N or P...brake on or off...fiddled with the alarm buttons...
I had him turn all things that would take power, heat, lights, radio, etc and when he tried to start it the lights didn't dim...I don't think it's a bad battery just by observation...I feel as though it's something else.
It's stuck at our office, I havn't been there since I made the thread, but I'm going in tomorrow...
Only thing I can check is the cruise control shutoff switch I guess...other then that w/o me really tearing into it I can't figure it out. Not much I can do w/o it being on a lift or in my garage. He will probably end up having it towed.
Well, correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the '92+ Fords all permanent magntet style? You usually wind up doing more damage then good to then trying that. I had a Dodge one die and hitting it never worked but then once I talked to a shop they also said that they have never been able to get any newer starter to work with that trick. I can't for the life of me remember anything other than the magnets crack really easy, there was another reason but I can't remember at the moment.
