SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus wont start and anti-theft light is blinking

Either you may be using a key that you had copied from the original or your chip went bad in your original key. Most of cars now a days have the key censor in the key so if it is the incorrect key it will not start your car or if it does not read that chip it will not start

SOURCE: 2001 ford taurus ABS will not light but brake light on

You have a bad ABS module. Had the same problem with my 2000 Taurus. The ABS module is a Bosch 5.3 You can have yours rebuilt for $170 or go to a junk yard and pull one from a 2000-2003 Taurus. Make sure its a traction control module if you have it on your car!

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Taurus anti-theft

There's many questions that have to need to help you that I need the answers to. Is the security light on with the key removed and the doors closed? Is it flashing or on steady? When the car is aproached to start it can you just get in start it up and drive it away and then you have troble or do you have to do something different to get it to do it? Will it drive just fine sometimes? Does it ever drive with the security light completly off? Do your electric door locks work just like they always did? (all the doors lock and unlock and they truly work not just make the sound? Has the car been in a hard accident? Doe'a the door ajar light go outwhen the doors are closed? Has the battery or altenator been dead or worked on right when it seemed the problem started? Are ther other problems with the car? Is the check engine light work, and does it go out with the engine running? Does the engine run good as always? How long has it been doing this? Did it seem to start doeing this after something else happened even if it seems unrelated? Have you tryed to reset the system ( With the drivers window down and all the doors closed and the hood open, and the key out, remove the battery cable and take a break for awhile, before reconnecting the battery reach in the window and put in the key and turn the key all the way to start and let go. Now go around to the battery and connect it good ( one motion ). with out opening the door, turn the key off and remove it. lock the drivers door with the key twice ( don't unlock it any ) unlock the door with the key twice it should unlock all of the doors, Open the door get in close the door put in the key and start it like always. ) If this reset fixes the car your done. If this is not your regular key for the car that can be the problem too. If you have more than one key for the car try them all. one of them may work just fine. If thats the case take the car to your locksmith that says that he can program keys. have him fix you a key that works and a copy if you desire one.

F450 2011 DRW diesel - check brake system light comes on 3 minutes after crank. Once light comes on no power to dash lights, power windows, sunroof, seats, or mirrors.

This could be a safety problem have ford run the VIN # to see if your truck is included in this recall. During this mode of nonoperational items the power feed is grounded but not pulling enough amps to blow its fuse but can be burning the wiring until other wires start the same thing then truck is up in smoke.

Car dashboard lights wont turn on and smell of burning wires

If you're smelling insulation burning - STOP. Fuses should be blowing before insulation melts / burns.

Have the car checked my a trusted mechanic before using anything in the car that makes the wiring burn or melt.

2003 Ford taurus gear shaped light on dash comes on after exccelration abouve 60 mph. Orange gear shaped light comes on the dash. It has an exclamation point inside th gear shape

Looks like your computer is detecting a transmission/transaxle problem. Have you had your filter changed in the tansmission yet? Are you a little low on transmission fluid? Is the transmission fluid high like it's overfilled? Is your transmission fluid brownish and smell burnt? Just a couple of things you might need to look at. You may or even should take it to a reputible transmission shop and have them run a scan on it to see what the problem is. I know this doesn't seem like much help to you at this point and time but I would have it taken care of before any damage may happen.

Change dash bulb 2001 tausus

There are 4 screws on the trim around your instrument cluster trim remove those and the entire cluster of gauges comes out enough to reach around and unhook the wiring harnesses from the back then you can remove the entire cluster. Autozone carries a 10 pack of 3.78 watt bulbs for around $3 best to just replace them all if 1 burned out that means its about time the others will be burning out soon to. I replaced a few of mine that burned out and didn't think to replace them all and sure enough about a month later 2 more burned out. Had to take the whole thing out and do it again this time I replaced all the original bulbs. At autozone the part number for the 10 pack is 194-box or if you are just changing 1 or 2 I think the twin pack part number is 194-l

Little smoke comes inside when defrost is on, 2000 ford taurus

If this occurs during rain with air cond.on it is a result of moist air. If you live in a humid area you may also experience this if there is no odor like burning do not be alarmed. if there is a burnt smell to the smoke have it checked it could be a shorted wire in your dash and could be a danger to you and pssengres
