Question about 2003 Ford Taurus

2 Answers

I have a 2003 ford taurus. My problem is sometimes the car starts and sometimes it won't. A symbol comes up on the dash, the ford manual says this symbol has something to do with the transaxel. If the car sits for about an hour or so it seems to always start back up

I had the same problem. The amp levels read fine but its the CCA or cold cranking amps. Low CCAs will cause your car to start only when it is cold.

2003 ford taurus dash lights wont come on,windows wont go up and it wont start no power


I would start by checking the fuses in the fuse panel. On the 2003 Taurus it is below and to the left of the steering wheel near the brake pedal.

You likely have a broken wiring harness at the brake light switch connector under the dash above the brake pedal. You can buy a replacement stub harness from Ford parts.

Yellow engine symbol appeared on the dashboard of my 2005 Ford Taurus.


The engine shaped dash warning icon/symbol represents the "Check Engine Light", CEL for short.
It could be because of several things that can make the light come on. Perform a scan on the car and identify the error codes . Autozone can scan the codes for free.
