You have an Alternator or alternator connector issue, have Auto Zone or Kragen test the charging system, it is free, most likely the alt will need to be replaced.

All signals and other flashers work but passenger front flashers do not work


Use a test light, test for power and ground at the bulb contacts. Then test for power and ground at the wires. Probably needs a new socket, common problem.

My 94 Ford Taurus doesn't blow cold or hot air it was working fine till all of a sudden it just smelled burnt and blew a lil smoke ???


The blower motor probably failed. Buy a used one from salvage. Test with jumper wires before installing. Usually, the blower fan motor is easy to change-easily accessed. Disconnect negative battery post, then the blower motor connector, remove 3 or 4 screws to pull motor and fan assembly out.

I let my 2000 ford taurus sit for 5 weeks and now it wont start


If you try to crank it and nothing happens your battery could be dead. See if your lights go on. If not, you probably need either a new battery or a battery jump and charge.

Ford taurus won't start when car been running for awhile


Could be your alternator not being able to spin enough current to start the car. Battery alone wont be enough to start the car. The alternator kicks in and helps. So check the alternator out. Take the alternator out and take it to autozone and they will check it for you for free.

Dome lights wont turn off in ford 1994 ford taurus wagon 3.8L


Have you checked the door seal? There is a button on it that turns off the light. Your button might be stuck or broken. The simplest solution is to pop the cover of the dome light and just take the bulb out. True, you won't have lights, but it won't drain your battery either.
