92 Ford Taurus Won't Start

I recently bought a 92 ford taurus at an auction and thought I got a great deal on it. However, when I tried to start it up the other day, I got nothing but a faint hum that sounds like it is coming from the rear of the car. It almost sounds like a small electrical motor of some sort, but the car won't turn over at all. Later that same day, the car did start normally, but now it won't. I did notice when I was changing the oil in it that the starter looked new so I don't think it is a faulty starter. This problem started with no warning. Drove the car one day, (actually no problems out of it for two weeks) parked it in the driveway and the next day, dead. I had to buy this car as temporary transportation to work, so I really need some ideas on what could be wrong with it. Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Thanks for the quick replies. I followed your advice and the battery and starter checked out good. The problem turned out to be the electric starter module.

The faint humming sound sound is just your fuel pump pumping fuel to the engine. no problem at all there. Check all batt. connections. its a good starting point for you diagnosis.

The hum you hear is the fuel pump. I would start with the battery and have it load tested, then I would pull the starter and have it tested.

Ford taurus 2001 car start but once the car is cut off it won't start up again until it cools off the car is not running hot.


After you kill it, when you try to start it back up, does the starter turn the motor? Or is it froze up (will not turn over)?

Show what fuses goes where on 2001 taurus


Hi,

The first place to start is the Ford 2001 Owner's Manual.

You can get a .pdf version of the 2001 Ford Taurus Owner's Manual at: http://owner.ford.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=Owner/Page/OwnerGuidePage&year=2001&make=Ford&model=Taurus

It has instructions and guides for finding and replacing the fuses in a 2001 Ford Taurus. It starts on page 146-147.

Always use the specific Owner's Manual for the correct Model Year of a Ford or Mercury vehicle. I recently purchased a 2001 Ford Taurus, and had thought that I could use the Owner's Manual from a 1999 Mercury Sable from a friend. BUT, I figured out that each model year can be very different (before any serious damage happened.)

Good luck,

JB

its either a bad fuel pump or you may have to take the fuel pump out and replace the wire that is inside the tank that connects to the fuel pump it is a lead wire and breaks somtimes causing it to have contact and loose contact..hope this helps keep me updated
