The lovely odor may just be the mouse nest, as mice are filthy house keepers. They use their nest for bathroom facilities and never clean house. Not quite sure how to take apart, but a vac. w/ a long slender attachment (for cleaning under refrigerators) may work around the sunroof openings. Try baking soda around sunroof , it will help absorb the odor. Try several applications, leave open box in closed car overnight, vac any u spread around the car. Good luck,

Which fuse is for the interior lights?


From what I've been able to research, and not knowing the model of taurus, i think it may be fuse #17. Discussion forums state that the fuse that controls the interior lights also controls the audio system.

98 taurus , it totally dies, no lights, no interior lights, no start, and suddenly it runs like if nothing happened


battery gremlins...have the battery system diagnosed at a Sears auto center , as if you're needing a battery and maybe they'll do it for free? sometime Walmarts do the same-free
Good Luck

2002 Ford Taurus Driver Side tail light bulb replacement


open the trunk.
pull back the cover on the side you need to change, there are usually 3 black plastic nut you have to remove before doing this.
after the trunk interior cover is pulled off there are 3 nuts, 11mm wrench or socket will take them off. pull the taillight assembly out and twist the socket out containing the bulb that is blown. the bulb just pulls out of the socket. while the bulb is out you should inspect the socket for corrosion, it wont hurt to clean it up and put some die electric grease in there

How do we remove the interior ceiling on our '03 Ford Taurus SES?


you need to remove all of the trim pieces around the doors and up the pillars, also remove teh central upper display and sun visors. in most cases you will need to remove seat belt shoulder straps this will require a torx bit. it is essentially held up by everything that comes in contact with it. lots of pushclips and a few screws. good luck, hope you find your culprit.

You need to Remove The Trim Panels all around the top and the Sunroof and you will see the Fasteners. You will have to take the whole Headliner out so as not to Risk Breaking it.
