It may just be a worn out belt.fit a new belt and adjust to correct tension.If that fails check the power steering pump it`s self..Good-luck..

SOURCE: 2005 ford taurus horn just doesn't work. I've

The problem can be with the horn pad, the horn relay or the horn itself. Find your horn relay, it should be in the engine compartment fuse box. Remove the relay and test for power at the legs. there should be two legs that have power. If there is power there, take the cover off the relay and plug it back in. Squeez the relay points together and see if the horn works. If the horn still does not work, it is probably the horn itself. If it does work it is probably the horn pad, but you don't want to mess with that because of the air bag. Let a pro do it.

All of this is predicated on the fact that you have checked all the fuses.

Hope this helps
Rich

2003 ford taurus steering very hard


Please go out and open the hood and see if there is a belt on the power steering pump. It is one of the pulleys that is using that really long serpentine belt. Next, check the belt tension to be sure it is tight. Then, check the power steering fluid, there should be a short dipstick on the bottom of the cap. If all of those are OK, find a way to jack up the whole front end of the car.
You will need to VERY surely secure the car from moving or rolling. With the front wheels not touching the ground, and the transmission in Park, start the motor and try to turn the front wheels. If the turning is still hard, suspect the "rack & pinion" or one of the tie-rod ends, or even one of the ball joints. Some part is likely "frozen up". You should not plan to drive the car without this fixed.

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.

Ford 1993 Taurus steering


Have you checked the power steering fluid level? The reservoir for the fluid will be at the front of the engine, where the belt runs the power steering pump. If it's low or out add a little power steering fluid till full, then start car and slowly turn wheels back and forth from stop to stop-not too ******* the stops (when the steering won't turn further that way...that's what I mean by stops)....Turn wheel one way full travel, then reverse and turn the other way. Check the fluid level again, and add as needed.
If fluid is not low, the belt may be too loose to make the power steering pump work, or you may have a bigger problem that needs professional attewntion.

What would the approximate cost to repair a 2001 ford taurus power steering. The car is hard to steer.


Cost at a shop to fix it $300 and up. Its really not that hard if you want to do it yourself. The power steering pump is located a the top of the motor its black and has 4 9 or 10 mm bolts holding it.
1. Remove belt
2. unbolt steering pump
3. unclamp hoses from pump keep them raised so fulid don't run out.
4. Replace pump
