96 ford taurus won't turn over

My 96 Taurus won't turn over. Dash lights will come one, battery checks out, starter and solenoid check out, ignition switch checks fine. Leave car alone for 2 hours will crank no problem. Believe it is a security system short out, how do I override the panel when my locks are electric but my key is manual?

You can't override the security system on this car, if it was easy what good would it be. You will need the dealer to scan the system to see why it is activating and locking out the engine start.

SOURCE: Whole Electrical system shuts down when ignition key turned

Try cleaning the battery connectors at both ends and make sure the ground at the frame is clear of rust. If that check out, drop the starter and have it bench tested

SOURCE: car will not crank over

Check the fuse box and make sure no fuses are blown. I had the same problem with my honda motorbike and thought the worst of it but then checked the fuses and found that one had blown. Once replaced the bike was fine!

Hope this helps you in someway! Good luck!

Why won't the car start?


If you mean the car won`t turn over then you could have a bad starter motor/solenoid. check voltage at the large wire terminal on the starter it should be battery voltage. then check voltage on the smaller wire terminal it should be battery voltage only when cranking. if not you will have to check out the wires for lose of voltage. make sure the starter has a good ground. if these are good then you have a bad starter that needs replacing.

The dash lights coming on doesn't mean your battery is strong enough to turn the car over. That being said, I would lean towards the starter also. I would just have the battery chkd out before you go replacing other things just to be sure. Good luck to you.

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus. My wife left the radio running with the ignition off for a short while. Now the car won't turn over, won't start, won't jump. There is one click when trying to s


The click you are hearing is most likely the start slenoid making contact, however you should short the large wires @ the solenoid to make certain the starter still doesn't run, if so try tapping the starter with a hammer to shift the comutator a litle and try to start. Even if it now starts the starter will continue to give you problems so the proper fix is change the starter
