I just bought this same car and I do have the problem of it not always starting. The previous owner had the crank shaft sensor changed in 01 and that seemed to help. I haven't looked into it recently. I seem to have a "common" problem with my transmission that is taking all my time.

I, too, have the same problem with it not always starting. I just bought my 1994 New Yorker and the problem is, when you turn the key all the way forward--it acts like you are trying to start the car while it's in gear, and does nothing but sit there... Sometimes it will start in neutral, sometimes park, but sometimes I sit there for a while until I can get it to turn-over... It seems electrical--like a sensor or something--the starter itself seems to act fine.
Has anybody figured this out yet?

I too have the very same problem. I cleaned the battery terminals and it went away for a while, then a month later it is baaaack, click, and won't start. If I continue to try click click click eventually it will start. Had the battery checked it is fine everything else seems fine, just once in a while it gets moody after rain or dampness and then it just surprises me, when I am trying to get to work, and nothing. Then just before I give up and call a cab, hello, it decides to turn over this time. Is it possessed? Has anyone, found out what this huge quite popular problem might be?

Your electrical problem, causing the car not to start, might be due to the lower control arm rubbing through the wiring harness, as per this recall...
