SOURCE: 2005 ford taurus. Remote entry wont work theft light keeps blinking when key is engaged

HI, I'm reading your problem,
Let me explain something about your car.

2005 Ford Taurus, The key on that car has Chip inside of the key and receiver on the ignition switch,
Check if the key you are trying to use is Black and has a plastic head.
If not you need a key with that characteristics.
But if you have the right key, Remenber if you had drop on the floor, or hit with something,
Because some times they come damaged, with insignificat thins.
Remenber if you left the key close to a magnets like speakers.

If nothing aply at your case, you need to call a place Aloha Smith, they have the computer to program or reprogarm your key. IF not you can't start your car.

OK.. I hope this information work for you.

Thank's for submit yous question on fixya.com

SOURCE: installed a new stater, battery and alt or fine, car makes a clunck sometimes b4 starting

The ignition coil can't do what you describe.

It almost sounds as if you have some broken teeth on the flywheel that the starter engages.

I would remove the starter, loosen or remove the spark plugs to relieve compression, then have someone turn the engine byhand while peering into the bellhousing with a flashlight where the starter mounts and inspect the flywheel for damage.

With a tooth (or more) worn or broken off, when the Bendix throws the starter gear forward, it may be landing on top of a broken tooth, slipping off, then turning your engine over.
There may be enough tooth even if broken, to stay engaged once the starter has meshed.

SOURCE: 1999 ford taurus starter will not engage

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my knowledge, you assumption is correct on most designs. That wire should go to the ignition switch and will be hot when key is in START. However, same wire often would be connected first to a relay that is interlocked with some conditions/status other then key to START. They would be:

  • automatic transmission should be in neutral/park with light indicated;
  • alarm/security/immobilizer is inactive/OFF.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

SOURCE: Intermittent fuel pump engagement when turning key - 2001 Taurus

try cleaning the connector that goes to the fuel pump, sometimes they corrode on inside. If that does not fix, test the wires feeding fuel pump with a multi meter until the condition shows itself again, if voltage drops to zero or very low then wiring problem, if voltage is unchanged with problem and fuel pump is not working and connectors are all clean, try replacement of fuel pump.

Ford Taurus turns over will not start replaced battery had to jump it before


see if this helps you out.

The starter won't crank. If nothing happens when you turn the ignition key to the "Start" position, it means that the starter motor doesn't turn over the engine. Most commonly this could be caused by a dead battery; here is How to check the battery. ... The starter motor itself or a starter solenoid could be bad.13 Aug 2013

Ford taurus ignition switch


Sounds like the ignition switch is broken. It is further down the steering column on the bottom side. The key switch pushes a piece of plastic to pull or push on the switch. Sometimes it is the this piece that brakes.

Easiest fix it it is the plastic actuator rod is to buy a used steering column and replace everything. You will have to get it re keyed to match you original set. Or if you already got your new key switch re keyed use that.

These pics are from a 1997 column but they are very similar to the 1995.

1995 Taurus. Starter will not disengage. Engine cranks, but will not turn over.


Find the starter relay under the hood. It may be bad and stuck so power continues going to the starter. Try a new relay Or try pulling off the small signal wire on the relay (it is from the switch), and hook battery up. If starter continues to run, the relay is bad. If starter is stopped, put the signal wire back on relay. If starter now starts operating, and key is still off, then switch may be bad .Location of relay may be at left front fender apron, in front of shock tower (like on earlier taurus models).

When i turn my key all i hear is a click is that my starter?


A single click is the solenoid on the starter engaging. This is a pretty typical symptom of a bad starter if everything else seems normal.

Rapid repeated clicking while the key is in the crank position is a good sign the battery is to weak to turn the engine over.

Back to the single click. Try turning the key to the crank position rapidly and repeatedly. Sometimes this will make the starter work wich will also confirm that it is bad.

I have a 1995 Ford Taurus and it wont turn over? It doesn't make clicking noices. Will not jump and all lights do come on.


It looks like your starter is gone.Solenoid is fine that is why you have lights. Test starter by crossing over with a screwdriver the positive and negative posts on the solenoid.If starter doesnt engage then replace it.

Car will not start.


Next step is checking the battery, or replacing it.
After that, check that the 'security' key or whatever is used on that vehicle isn't messed up. Might be a fuse for that as well.
