96 ford taurus won't turn over

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.

2005 ford tauras car i turn key and nothing happens fully charged battery and new starter

fuses - including the eingine fuse itself,. otherwise you may want to tap on the starter while someone trys to turn it over,. otherwise remove, test (if good) replace starter) was the starter solenoid replaced with the starter? are all the connections including the battery ground cleaned/ inspected? You may have a bad starter or bad solenoid, even new (rebuilt) that can happen..

I have a ford taurus... that seems to be making a clicking sound when trying to start it... and it wont start? does anyone know what the problem might be?

This problem is caused by a defective starter solenoid, the solenoid is mounted to the top of the starter motor. Generally the best thing to do is just replace the starter with a rebuilt part.

The starter keeps dying on my Taurus and needs replacement. last one is 3 months, before that 3 weeks and one prior less than 1 yr. Mechanic said he even smoothed out a rough spot on the fan and can't...

Can I ask where are you getting the starter from? is it the right size for you car. I had a 96 Taurus and only had to mine once. Lost mine a few years ago in the hurricane( live in New Orleans). ford has several different starters for the Taurus depending on engine size. Call your dealership to find out what starter you need. Your local auto parts store then can get you the right one. You can change this yourself. It takes about 45 minutes for a beginner. If you want to change it yourself. I'm here to tell you how. its just a ratchet, extensions, sockets, and a couple of wrenches. that's all, oh, and a little elbow grease.

My car wont start light come on dash works when turn over engine it just click click click then nothing tried new battery dot work i have a 2002 ford taurus please help cant afford machinic

Hello. Begin by cleaning the battery cable connections with emery cloth. do both ends, the ends at the battery posts and the other ends too. Now make sure everything is really tight and try it again. If you still get the clicking sound, your starter is bad and will need to be replaced. A rebuilt starter is a good choice.
