Question about 1998 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Battery will no hold a charge

97 ford taurus. after shutting the car off, the locks will automatically go up and down a few times at any given time to the point of draining the battery. I replaced the battery, this didnt solve the problem. We pulled the fuse for the locks, this didnt solve the problem. We have to disconnect the battery everytime we shut the car off. What else can we do???

Is it a temperature-controlled fan? I've seen some cars that run their fans for a few minutes after the car is turned-off, to cool-down the engine. After a few minutes, it will automatically shut off -- it also shut-downs when the "target" temperature is reached.

I tried to start my 2005 Ford taurus and after a spit second of attempting to turn over it shut down. I would have thought it was a dead battery (because that is how the car is acting) but when I push any...


Hello, The Ford systems are real sensitive to Battery fluctuations. You need a fully charged battery to start out with. If the battery is too low and the jump is removed, the car can stop charging.

Ford also made it to reduce the Voltage to the starter. If the battery is low, the Antitheft will reduce the battery voltage to 7 Volts or less.

There are also Relays in the Powerbox. The Ignition Relay may be bad. I understand that the Horn Relay is the same part and if you check the part numbers on the Relays you may be able to use the Horn Relay to get home.

A fully charged battery wil show 13.2-13.6 Volts. All of the Ford, Mercury, and Lincoln vehicles can malfunction like this, so it just isn't your individual car. Your Battery is 5 years old and anything can happen.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

The fans are relay controlled, likely problem. Most current demanding componants have relays because a switch circuit would burn out. All your issures are very possibly relay issues. Find the relay bank and chk yhem for overheating, burn out, or plain ole malfunction. Good Luck, -Ned-
