This may be as simple as needing to tighten your battery cables better. I would also check the ground on your alternator this may not be hooked up as well. If you ran your battery off of the old bad alternator for awhile the CCA's in the battery might be bad. The battery can have enough volts for your system but not enough cold cranking amps to get your car to turn over correctly or to keep a charge as well. I would also check spark plug wires, coil pack wires, the end of the spark plugs just to be safe you know. Autozone does free system checks as well so they can pretty much pin point an electrical service problem for you for free.

1995 ford taurs dash lights will not come on why not?


The dash lights have their own 5 amp fuse. The power for this fuse comes through the fuse for the tail lamps. This is done so that if the fuse for the tail lamps blows, the driver will know because the dash lamps go out and when he checks the dash lamp fuse, it will be good, but there will be no power going to it. Most common issue though, is that someone accidentally turned the dimmer switch for the dash lamps completely down. Check that first.

sounds like you have a bad ground. There should be a motor ground on the back of the motor anas well as the battery ground. The battery going dead could be caused by this or a bad regulator in the altenator unplug the altenator to check this for the starting problem
