A late reply; I'm sure you have found the problem by now-
It sounds as if the battery (old and new) are not receiving sufficient charge.
Check the drive belt tension and add a cheap digital multimeter to your 'tools.'  These can be had for well under $20 US and you can then check across the battery terminals to see if the charge voltage is between ~ 13-14.3 volts at an idle. In no case should it be lower than 13 volts with the engine running since the nominal battery voltage is 12.6 volts when fully charged.
You may have a separate regulator that is ill.

You will have to look at other areas, like spark and fuel, and engine compression.

Its probably the alternator. It will need to be tested on the vehicle with the engine running and the light illuminated. Measure the battery voltage with the engine running. It should be at least 13.5 volts. If it is lower have the alternator tested at a shop with a charging system tester.

Are you sure that is a charging problem?Check if the carb injects gas at the moment the engine runs off,if there is spark on the ignition cables,as for no holding the charge,make this tip,disconnect the positive cable of the battery and get a multimeter,connect one terminal to the battery post and the other terminal cable,and disconnect every fuse and relay and possible part that consume a charge,one part at the time,when the reading on the multimeter goes down you did find the problem that its consuming the charge.

MY 2005 FORD TAURUS SW,THE CHECK GAS CAP CAME ON. TIGHTENED IT GOT GAS AND IT STAYED ON. DROVE FOR A FEW MILES AND LIGHT WENT OFF?


Maybe the cap was just not put on all the way

Then the Evap Monitor ran & did not find any faults

That monitor is the last to run & only does so every few days

Your timing was just when you needed it to run

Have a 2005 Ford Taurus battery light and Check charging system light keep coming on


Three Questions

1 --why are you using it like that?
2--you have check lights,possible fault
codes & do nothing
3--what are we supposed to do

When a vehicle is not 100% ,you immediately
diagnose & resolve the issues or stop using it

I fail to see how how people spend $20,000
to $70,000 dollars of money they don't even
have, for a vehicle ,then learn nothing about it,
or care to at least get it looked at when thing
happen

Battery light comes on stays on and then the car won't start


You appear to have soaked the abs system sensors in the wheels and shorted them out...A short can take a battery to zero in no time...Check out the car for shorts!

You either have a short/large draw in your electrical system or your alternator is bad. Remove the alternator and have it tested at your local parts store.

I tried to start my 2005 Ford taurus and after a spit second of attempting to turn over it shut down. I would have thought it was a dead battery (because that is how the car is acting) but when I push any...


Hello, The Ford systems are real sensitive to Battery fluctuations. You need a fully charged battery to start out with. If the battery is too low and the jump is removed, the car can stop charging.

Ford also made it to reduce the Voltage to the starter. If the battery is low, the Antitheft will reduce the battery voltage to 7 Volts or less.

There are also Relays in the Powerbox. The Ignition Relay may be bad. I understand that the Horn Relay is the same part and if you check the part numbers on the Relays you may be able to use the Horn Relay to get home.

A fully charged battery wil show 13.2-13.6 Volts. All of the Ford, Mercury, and Lincoln vehicles can malfunction like this, so it just isn't your individual car. Your Battery is 5 years old and anything can happen.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

My 2003 ford taurus won't start and the theft light is on and the trunk will not open? Whats the problem?


I have a similar problem, intermitently the car will not crank. The dome light stays on which eliminates the battery. The clock on the radio turns off when I try to start it. Th Theft light is solid red the first time I try to start it, then latter after a few tries the red light is off, but it still wont start. I tried moving the shifter when in park, I even tried starting it in neutral. After a while it starts and once started it runs fine. I will have to take it to Ford next week. We just do not want to drive it, it is too unreliable. It is a 2000 Ford Taurus.

2005 ford taurus engine light on


Try disconnecting the battery for 10 mins.This may reset the lights timer. If it comes back on within the next few days the take it to a large auto parts store and most will bring their computer out and hook it to your car and read the code the light will leave in your car computer,then they tell what the code says and try to sell you the part.You might car the auto parts store first and tell them what you have and ask if then can read your code for you.Its usually a free service.

2004 Taurus will not crank


Does it crank with a jumpstart?

If so, then have the belt to the alternator checked. Do you make short trips? It may just take that long for the battery to discharge enough to not crank the engine.
