Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
The condenced story...99 Taurus would not start.Battery , alternater, and starter tested all fine.Still after 2 days in my driveway...nothing. Brought car in to an autherized Ford dealer FIVE times,Finally they tried to disconnect the radio..IT WORKED. I did however tell them that a cassette was stuck just prior to my problem. Everyone I spoke with said the same thing '' when the radio is off it is off,it won't affect the battery''. So for all you techs out there FYI , Yes the radio was the problem,weird. So they took out the ''football' and replaced it with another one so I may have heat. Now my car starts , but have no radio.My question is what is the best solution on getting a radio back in my car ? Thank you for your time, Paul
I WOULD HOOK UP THE RADIO TO A DIFFERENT POWER SOURCE IN THE FUSE BOX. TRY A WIRE DIRECTLY TO THE FUSE BOX, AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
