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.

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.

1995 Ford Taurus not starting. Sometimes it starts and sometimes the starter won't turn over not even a click. Wait half an hour and it may work fine. Starter less than a year old as is the battery


Even though new-ish, I'd still suspect the battery has no charge, ask a friend to give you a jump start. Then give your car a good run, 20 miles, if is doesn't work again the next day either the battery fails to keep its charge or the alternater isn't charging it. A good garage will be able to test either for you, you'll need to change the failing part.

1995 Taurus will not restart after sitting 5 minutes. After sitting for approximately an additional hour will restart.


With the spark dying it sounds like electric problems. Your coil can be failing when it builds up heat sitting. The fan air and air from driving can keep the coil cool but then it acts like a heat sink when the engine sits.
The battery can also play out in heat, have it tested. Finally the ground wires could be dirty. The motor has more compression when hot. This time of year cold oil is not a factor on cold starts, so you do not have problems on the initial start. The starter ground seems okay, but the chassis ground for the ignition could be corroded.

WAS GIVEN A 1991 TAURUS WHAT TYPE OF BATTERY SHOULD I BUY?


I cant tell you off hand, but if you need a new battery, the auto parts store will be able to give you this info. Any cars battery will start the vehical, what makes battery different from one another is required cold cranking amps, and size. Your car does not need high cranking amps, depending on how cold it is were you live. Its usually size thats impotant. If you put a battery in your car that is to big, and the mounts for it cant hold it right, well, you'll wind up with a battery in your fan. Hope this helps. John...
