SOURCE: need diagram for placement of serpentine belt for 97 Ford Taurus

Auto Zone has that information on line here. You didn't say what size engine you have or whether it is OHV or DOHC, but according to their numbers, almost 90% of 97 Taurus are 3.0L OHV.

SOURCE: 1999 ford taurus stalling, phantom wiper pass and radio pops

this is all to common a problem with the wipers, it is caused by the combination wiper switch, it makes connection all by itself, Ford has issued a TSB (tenhnical service bulliten) on this problem, replace the switch.

SOURCE: replace a serpentine belt on a 97 ford taurus

use a 15mm box wrench on the nut retaining the tensioner pulley to pry the tensioner 'arm' against the spring to release belt. note belt routing on decal under hood,or make a sketch,to aid in replacement.
on OHV engine rotate clockwise
on OHC rotate counter clockwise
be sure belt is completely seated on pulleys

Car Radio, Casette Player and CD Player not working

Hello Lei,

It sounds like the antenna has came loose from the back of the radio and the wiring harness is loose.

Make sure you have a good ground going to the radio, or this will cause a short and make the radio do strange things, the fact you sometimes get a signal tells me the radio is in working condition.
