If it sat for 2 years then the battery may be loosing power and if the car starts after a few days it sounds to me like the battery isnt charging properly from the alternator so get that looked at and see if it fixes the problem.

My 96 ford contour 4 cyl. suddenly stalled on me while going down the road and now it wont start. i was told it sounds like it might have jumped time. can i get free step by step instructions and maybe a...


It sounds more like the fuel pump to me, if you don't hear the pump when you turn the ignition to the on position, that's the problem, check to make sure the fuse and the fuel pump relay are still good before you change the pump.

Check engine light on 401


Should be the same as the Contour. Try these items, let me know.

go to www.contour.org a web site for contours, i got alot of info on
the old P0401 trouble code over there.. will cover your taurus as well
as the contours..... one is to clean the manifold by pulling off the
throttle valve body and pulling all the carbon deposits out of the
openings.. i had the P0401 on my 96 contur and changed out the EGR, the
EGR vacuum modulator and still have the problem code and will get to the
cleaning behind the throttle body when i get a chance to get to it....
been like this for about 2 yrs. now... no problems running the car, just
the light stays on... i can get it to go out by disconnecting the
battery but it comes back after two cycles in the car start up.....

Jumper cables have two colored cables. The red one goes from your vehicle positive battery terminal (+) to the other cars positive terminal (+)

The black goes from your negative terminal(-) to the other cars negative terminal (-)
Your car should start within 5 to 10 minutes if you have good connections.
Get your charging system checked to see if your battery is bad, or your car charging system is not working.

It could be the fuse or the fuel pump itself. First thing to do is to determine if it is a spark or fuel issue.
