We put a new starter in also a new battery

Confirm that all of the pulleys are free to rotate. The water pump, alternator, power steering, idler, tension, and A/C.

The A/C compressor has been known to seize

Installing the belt including the alternator (unless a pulley has seized) is very unlikely to keep the engine from crank!

Hope this helps

On my 1992 ford taurus I replaced the belts and now car is squealing and smoking what now

Assuming that you have routed the belt properly:

Look for a pulley that isn't turning when the engine is running. A seized air pump did this exact thing on a Lincoln Town Car that I recently worked on. My in-laws had a Mercury Zephyr that stopped dead from a seized power steering pump.

Have a helper ready to start the car when you say so. Have a flashlight in hand, if necessary. When the engine is running, look for a seized (not spinning) pulley. It's likely that the belt was damaged if it smoked a lot.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

My 96 Taurus GL has an electrical short somewhere, The radio works on & off , the defrost is out,The speedometor works only every so often, when the lights are on it starts giving me a clicking sound...

sounds like you may need an alternator... theres not a short< your just losing battery power and the steering wheel being hard to turn is probably your engine cutting out... also it could be a seized up pully or a/c compressor...

By passing the ac pullie on a ford windstar 3.8 L V6

Yes you can there should be a diagram with the new belt size and routing instructions. If not stop by your local auto parts store when you buy the belt get a chiltons manual.
