Question about Ford Taurus

1 Answer

My 2001 Ford Taurus will not start, battery is good, no dome light coming on, not even a click when turning the ignition. I repositioned the fuse box to access the radiator hose and since have not been able to crank the car. I did so gingerly so as not to stress the wiring. what should I check now?

You can jump across the celonoid on the starter. If the engine turns over then your problem is either the celonoid or the starter switch.

I had the same issue this morning...ran yesterday just fine, but this a.m. when I went to start...nothing. No dash lights, no click, nothing except some odd ticking from the dash(?) ~ weird. Anyway, replaced the battery...starts like the champ!
Changing the battery is a bit of a challenge, but I found a GREAT step-by-step on http://www.corvettemagazine.com/2001/october/battery/bat1.asp

It could be bad plugs, plug wires, a bad ground will do this as well. Check to see if it has the three main things.

Spark
Air
Fuel

Anther common problem is the crank shaft speed sensor. It will cause it to not spark and not start.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Taurus - won't start. Cranks really good

George,
Lots of possible choices... but junk yard coil as a replacement (easy for you to do) can eliminate that potential problem for just a few dollars.

If that fails, have a friend help you confirm that you have spark - by pulling a plug wire and holding it against (near) a good ground. If it sparks over 1/2 inch - it is not spark.

If that fails, pull a plug wire off a spark plug. Crank the engine for 10-15 seconds. Now remove and inspect the plug for gas wetness. If wet, it is not fuel flow.

If that fails, it could be timing, timing belt, or a large number of other issues - most cheap to fix but time consuming to locate.

Do the above tests then come back and let us know what you find!!

My taurus wont start


If your alternator and starter is good. You might have a dead cell in your battery, If your battery checks ok, then you have a bad ground= corroded or broken wire.

Losing power in 2001 taurus


Pull all of your fuses, disconnect the Positive lead from the Battery and use a Multi Meter between the cable and battery post. with the ignition on off. Check the voltage, now replace the fuses one at a time and watch for a change in voltage. The fuse that causes a change will be the one that goes to what is draining your battery.

No power and batt is good


My first guess would be a dead cell inside the battery, or a blown fuseable link between the battery and the fuse box.
Someone would need to check the battery connections and fuse box with a meter.

2002 ford taurus, no power to ignition or accessories


you say power is present at fuse box....the dashboard one or engine compartment? Does sound like a fuse. Knife blade fuses are best checked with a meter or test lamp as they can appear good on inspection

2000 ford taurus wont start. When the key is turned I have no dash lights, or power to the accessories that run through the ignition. I changed the ignition switch today. Thank You Chris


Is your dome light coming on? do the power locks work?
Your battery may be dead, or you may have blown a main fuse (under the hood)

Maybe the main Ignition relay in your fuse box or on the firewall. Faulty relay can cause intermittent no-power situations.

2001 Taurus just died on road. I check the battery, alternator and they checked out ok. I did find a blown 30A fuse for the PCM. When the ignition key is turned I get nothing, not even the "solenoid...


Under the radiator cover there is a box with a rectangular plug. This is the constant control relay module (CCRM). Replace this part. It's available at the dealer. This controls the power to the ignition and fuel systems. Why Ford installed this electrical component above the radiator is still a mystery to me.

Doors unlock when driving


ON THE DOME LIGHT : you will test if the light is ok by turning the dimer for the dash light all the way up until it clicks, if the light come on, then this mean the fuse the circuit and the bulb are ok. also try by opening other doors, if the light come on by opening other door that means than the switch at that specific door is not good, if nothing of this work check all the fuses and make sure they are ok, specially the lighter fuse.

and on the unlucking doors make sure to check for a previous aftermarket alarm in your car, most of the times you wil see a little red light blinking, or have some one with little knowledge to tell you if the car does have one, and have it remove, this might be unlucking the door when you don't want to
