WHAT DOES THE BATTERY LIGHT INDICATE ON A 1999 FORD TAURUS?


Sounds like your only problem is a very dead battery

If it was over 4 years old & you had load tested it,you
wouldn't have all that bad experience

Any idea why you installed a new alternator other than a guess,
no testing,well the dead battery may be an issue there as well

2003 Ford Taurus air condition switching to defrost at high rpm; speedometer, tachmeter, odometer quit.


Hi Bret, Most modern vehicles have an engine main relay. The relay in question turns off all auxiliary circuits for the starting operation, (when you turn the key to the start position) which consumes more power than any other operation. I would suspect a problem with the wiring to that relay. A loose or bad connection at the base or to the base. The relay in question will usually be a five pin normally open normally closed relay. It should be identified by the directory printed onto the plastic cover of the relay / fuse cover. Also check the secondary connections to the battery. Regards John

I have a 2000 ford taurus and the radio quit working and the heater come on when you start the car and the heater is off


We have a 1998 Ford Taurus that has the radio in an oval bezel that has the heater controls also on it.

If this is like your vehicle, then when you remove the radio using two coat hangers shaped like a 'C' then you can see where the electrical connections go for the fan and the heater setting.

The radio in our 1998 Ford Taurus started to malfunction with the volume level not being adjustable.

After taking the radio out, and putting it back in, a week later the problem went away, mysteriously, and to my surprise.

Hope this helps.

A few days ago, I turned my car, a 1995 Ford Taurus, on and everything was working fine and then it was almost as if the car had stalled, but it was still driving. The radio turned off, the power steering...


BY WHAT YOU ARE SAYING IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU MIGHT HAVE A BELT ISSUE, WHAT I WOULD IS OPEN THE HOOD AND LOOK DOWN AND SEE IF THE BELT IS STILL THERE, IF IT IS GRAB IT AND PULL ON IT MAKE SURE IT ISN'T TO LOOSE. IF ALL IS GOOD THERE I WOULD GET THE ALTANATOR CHECKED OUT SOULD BE PUTTING OUT 14.6 VOLTS WHEN RUNNING. TRY THAT HOPE IT HELPS YOU.

Radio won't play in drive


Probably the TRS or MLP senor (depends on the year) on the tranny. It tells the PCM what gear you want to be in.

Located on top of the tranny and is fan shaped.
