You may need a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. It is located on the Transmission on the Passenger side out-put shaft housing.

SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus will not idle down

several things can do this but most likely would be
1 TPS trottle postion sensor = replace
2 stuck butterfly valve inside the trottle body = clean out with trottle body cleaner try to get most of the black build up with a old tooth brush
3 bad trottle cable= feel the cable make sure it moves freely if not replace it

SOURCE: how to replace alternator on 1999 ford taurus

If this is for the 3.0L Vulcan engine, it's really easy. There are two mounting bolts and a stud nut. The mounting bolts go through the left side of the mounting bracket and through the alternator (it's at the top of the serpentine assembly). You'll have to take the stud not off from the lower intake manifold to remove the second mounting bracket. Make sure you disconnect the negative battery terminal first so that you don't fry anything. You'll also have to remove the nut that attaches the ground to the alternator and remove the wiring harness. The nut is enclosed in a black rubber pocket that protects the connection from moisture. After you've done all this, just pull it up and off the assembly. Installation is the reverse of removal.

The cigarette lighter in my 1998 for taurus has quit working and the plug in or adapter for charging cell phones, etc. also has quit working. So I need to know which fuse is the one I need to replace. I...


it's probably a 10 amp fuse and there should be tiny writing on the fuse box itself with abbreviated writing for all your systems. The fuse box should be near the driver area.

Stereo stopped working along with speedometer


It's probably not a fuse. It sounds like your vehicle speed sensor went bad in the transmission. The reason your radio stopped working was because your radio is probably equipped with speed sensitive volume and it requires a speed signal to work.

THE RADIO MOST LIKELY IS THE PROBLEM, WITHOUT THE REPAIR MANUALS IT WOULD BE VERY HARD TO REPAIR (man. not availiable to the public), YOUR BEST BET IS TO FIND A FORD AUTHORIZED REPAIR SHOP, THEY ARE ON THE NET, THE OTHER BUY A USED UNIT ON EBAY, THE LAST IS THE BEST OPTION, I HAVE DONE THIS ON SEVERAL CARS AND WORKED OUT GREAT, LESS THAN $100 FOR A USED UNIT.
