Dead starter on a Mercury Sable wagon on the day the Northeast suffered a power blackout. Banged starter a few times with a hammer, no start, replaced it. There are many ways for a starter to fail and the plain dead starter is just one failure mode.

By measuring for 12v on the 'S' terminal each time the ignition switch is turned to START, you eliminated the starting circuit, including the neutral safety start switch and narrowed it down to a faulty starter.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
