Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
I have a 99 taurus and since april of this year my car started to randomly die. If I let the car sit for over 12 hours it is completely dead to where I can't even power unlock the doors. I've changed the alternator and the battery 3 times. Would this have anything to do with the fact that my windshield wipers randomly go on and off by themselves? Could it be my battery terminals, or my alarm I had installed in the car? Please help, this car has been nothing but trouble.
U need a new relay switch in the inside fuse box. it stores power and when it goes bad it drains the battery and the windows are because of a factory recall on the switch and has nothing to do with your problem. the rrelay switch is a big black square one and probably clicks alot after you park and get out of the car you will have to listen for it.

Its sounding like you have an electrical short in the car. These are the hardest things to track down. Basically the home test you can do is with a basic test light. Disconect your possative lead from your battery and *short* the conection with your test light. Clip on the clamp touch the point to the posative battery terminal. With the car off it that light comes on super bright you have a short to start tracking down.
