That is probably a contact somewhere on lights wiring. You find the contact testing wiring from switch to back of the fusebox, and from fusebox to bulb with fuse removed. You test wies using a voltmeter.

Turn key nothing, but battery still works


Battery still works meaning you have lights that go on inside? That mean you have a little power. Might be battery. Check to make sure you are in the Park gear. If the battery is fully charged and this is happening you starter solenoid is worth looking at. In order I'd go 1) solenoid, 2) Park gear switch (car not knowing it's in Park when it is) or 3) Ignition switch failure.

2001 ford taurus wont get out of park


Most of the time the problem is caused by the brake switch or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park.
When you turn the key on, power is applied to the solenoid and stepping on the brake cuts that power.

You'll have to figure out if you are lacking fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.

1993 ford taurus will not come out of park, brake lights won't come on even with new fuse


You likely have a broken wiring harness at the brake light switch connector under the dash above the brake pedal. You can buy a replacement stub harness from Ford parts.

I have a 2004 Ford Taurus whose parking lights will not turn off. Sometimes they just go off eventually, sometimes the battery has to die in order for them to turn off. How do I fix this?


Sounds like the light switch is not always switching off. Try getting at the back of the switch and figure out which wire goes to the park lights (probably one of the smaller wires, you can possibly identify the colour of the wire by removing the tail light cover and seeing which wire goes to the park light globe). Once you identify the wire switch the lights off (I assume the rogue park lights stay on) disconnect the wire. If the park lights go off, the fault almost certainly lies with the light switch. If the rogue park lights remain on then power is getting to the park light wires after the switch. You could try to find where the park light wires are touching live wires ( a difficult job) or cut the old wires off at the switch and the park lights and run new wires from the switch to the park lights.

Brake fuse blows as soon as replaced 2001 ford taurus


That usually means short to ground..Look for a wire touching the frame or the body of the car somewhere..Check around the brake switch which is located on the brake pedal...Disconnect the connector and try the fuse again..If it doesnt blow then i would think the switch is bad..Also check around the brake lights and make sure the wires look ok..That is if your talking about the brake light fuse

I have a 01 ford taurus whit p0705 transmission code and i have no idea what this mean


Code P0705 - Transmisson Range Sensor Circuit (PRNDL Input)
The transmission range switch detects the selector lever position and sends a signal to the TCM.

The park/neutral position (PNP) switch includes a transmission range switch. The transmission range switch detects the selector lever position when the shift lever is in the N or P shift position and sends a signal to the Transmission Control Module (TCM).

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

Possible causes
- Open or short park/neutral position switch circuit
- Poor park/neutral position switch circuit connection
- Misadjusted park/neutral position switch
- Park/neutral position switch may be faulty

Keep us updated (remember to rate thsi answer).
