2005ford/taurus/3.0l/ohv/flex-fuel/cal/emiss/car start,s like the battery or starter is defected when both are not and the dash gaugses wiggele stuck for a few sec. then the car start

Hello, I would be looking at the starter solenoid. Follow the heavy duty copper cable from the starter back to the battery. Now, if there is metal can that is bolted to fender panel or there abouts.
This can has two heavy duty wire going ot it and each is attached to each side of the can. Also there isi one or maybe two wire attached to the can but are much smaller, then you found the starter solenoid.

But if the cable from the starter goes directly to the + of the battery then the starter solenoid is located on top of the starter. To remove the solenoid you'll need to remove the starter. FIRST discontect the (-) negative side of battery, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!! The solenoid has a couple bolts that hold to the starter. I wish you lots of luck . GB...stewbison

I have a 1995 Ford Taurus and it wont turn over? It doesn't make clicking noices. Will not jump and all lights do come on.

It looks like your starter is gone.Solenoid is fine that is why you have lights. Test starter by crossing over with a screwdriver the positive and negative posts on the solenoid.If starter doesnt engage then replace it.

I need to replace the starter solenoid on a 2003 ford taurus

The starter solenoid is attached to the starter unlike the older Fords. You will have to remove the splash guard to gain access to the starter. It is located on the front side of the motor.

Won't Start

check to see if your model of taurus has a starter solenoid. It acts like a on/off switch, when you turn the key. its a cheap and easey replacement and if it works good to go. it not check your ground and possative cable. The possative cable usualy goes to the solenoid on most Fords, NOT Always. if the possative does go to the solenoid then it will go to the starter and some other things also. The ground goes from the battery to the engine block. REMOVE THEM AND CLEAN THEM THOROUGHLY. This is where I would start. Also have our battery checked. It could be just that simple. Check your fuses, also.

if this does not work edit your question with more detail and I will try to answer more.
