Welcome to the Crown Vics ETC blog!

On April 6, 2000, I purchased a 1998 Ford Crown Victoria LX HPP with 23,490 miles. I decided to start a little website for it featuring a running log of my experiences with the car. Vic 1.0 was retired in 2015 due to rust and electrical issues. Vic 2.0 was a 2006 P71 in Blue Pearl that belonged to my boyfriend. It was a Ford demo and never saw actual police use. It was damaged in September of 2018 with well over 186,000 miles. It was replaced by Vic 3.0 in October 2018 with a 2008 P71 in Silver Birch with 120,971 miles.

UPDATE: Not again...

Yesterday Vic took a ride via flatbed across town to a Ford dealership. "Taxi Guy" did everything he could think of to get the car going, but said the dealer would have different diagnostic equipment that would be better.

As of this second, the problem is NOT with the keys or computer... it is (yes, say it with me...) a broken wire. Yup. Again. But I am waiting to see if this is indeed the issue. Why did the first shop have so many issues keeping the car running with different keys? Was it a coincidence?

We shall see... stay tuned...
