Depends on the problem.
You can remove the starter and have it bench tested at an auto parts store.
Or you can use a meter and check for voltage on the terminals.
The small wire engages the solenoid to make the starter drive turn.

SOURCE: Amps from a starter for 1989 Ford Taurus

Coming out? None
You should have a starter draw of about 250-300 amps during cranking. Disconnect the fuel or ignition system and crank for several seconds to get a good reading.

SOURCE: 1996 Ford Taurus LX wagon. 3.0L 24v Duratec.

I would look at the positive cable at the battery and at the starter. Pull the cabel off and a continuity test to see if the wire has a internal break if the wire gets even a pinhole it can build corrosion on the inside of the wire and when a current is put through it it seperates (from the resistance and arc from corrosion) causing the wire to seperate internaly.

Hope this will get you started!

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.
