The taurus is equipped with what is called a PATS (passive anti theft) that wont let the car start until it recognizes the key in the ignition, some things to check, first when you put the key in and turn the car to run (not start) does the theft light blink fast in the dash or is there a red on light on the dash that starts blinking? if so it is a PATS problem, the only ones I know of that can program keys are dealers, if the car wont turn over it probably is not a fuel pressure issue, the most common thing would be the PATS keys either unprogrammed or somthing wrong with the module. hope this helps

Turns over wont start


You need to figure out what you do not have that an engine needs to run. What is the fuel pressure at the fuel rail? Do you have spark when cranking the engine? Are the fuel injectors operating? Do you have ample compression? When you figure out what you do not have, that will tell you what you need to fix.

Why won;t my 1982 toyota tercel start


Is it driven daily? Has it been sitting? The more information posted, the better. With this information.....out of fuel, blown fuse, fuel pump, timing belt, fuel filter, dead battery, etc. Does it turn over? Does it try to start but don't? Does it start and die?

Why won't my car start? It was running last night.


Try start the car again when it is completely dry, if it starts the rain may be short circuiting something on the loom in the engine bay.

If it still wont start,

will it turn over? (car tries to start)
- If it wont turn over the battery would be dead

- If it turns over but wont burst into life then we can go from there ^_^

Replaced the fuel pump on 97 dodge mini caravan now motor wont crank like the battery is dead. tried jumping it - nothing. All lights work bright! What did I do wrong?


I would check the starter for voltage first - there is a starter relay that is grounded by the PCM. If the ASD relay is faulty the pcm won't have power. You should have battery power to the starter and power on the solenoid when you turn the key to start.

Fuel pump fixed, turns over but still won't start


I don't know much about these but on my daughters 1.0i polo I had to reset the throttle with a computer after disconnecting the battery for a while.
If you are sure you have a spark and fuel getting to the plugs then the fault will lie with timing and fuel mixture.

My 2005 Kia Sedona won't start - I don't think it's the battery.


If the battery is low on charge (but not dead) then the sound should be a fast clicking of the voltage regulator. In this case no power is sent to the starter so the car engine will not turn over. All you hear is the fast click.
You mention a high-pitched quiet buzz sound. All I can think of is the electric fuel pump but that is in the fuel tank. There can be be a whine/buzz when starting the car because the fuel pump needs to pressure up the system. However, if the battery/starter are good then the engine would turn over, but with no fuel...it would not start if the fuel pump is bad.
If the car is a manual...you might try putting it in gear and rocking the car a bit to see if the starter somehow is jammed

Fuel pump not turning on. Won't fire but will turn over. swapped out relay, still not fire.


Try banging on the fuel tank, and then quickly try to start it, if it starts your fuel pump is almost dead and will need replaced soon.
If it doesn't start, test for power at the wiring connector on top of the fuel tank. This test requires 2 people, because the fuel pump is only powered for a few seconds when the engine isn't running. If you have power, then the problem is in the fuel pump (completely failed or bad wiring connection on the pump/inside the sending unit)

1996 GMC JIMMY WILL NOT START: Turn the ignition and there is a repeated clicking sound. The interior lights, radio and power windows still function. Replaced the "in line" fuel filter under the...


It sounds like you probably have a shorted battery cell. This will not only cause the repeated clicking that you described, but it will also rob power when jump-starting from another vehicle. There is probably enough power when jump starting to turn the starter over, but after the starter take the power that it needs, there is not enough power to operate the computer system....so I have no doubt that you probably are not getting any fuel. The computer has to tell the fuel pump to run. If there is no power for the computer....I think you can figure it out from here.

Replace the battery and try it again.
