Question about 2004 Ford Taurus
2004 Taurus. Will not start at intermittent times. To date have rocked ignition switch on and of several times. Tachometer advances to max RPM setting when ignition switch is in start position even though engine is not running. Allowed car to sit for a few minutes and it had always started. Today - all accessories work, lights are bright, horn is loud but no starter action. Switched batteries from my truck. The Taurus battery starts the truck but the truck battery delivers same no-starter-response when insatlled in the Taurus. Suggestions please.
I have the same car but don't have that problem with this one however, I did with the 99 I traded for this one. I figured out that if the wheels were not left straight, any degree of angle facing either direction, would freeze something in the steering column and not allow it to start. Had it towed twice before the tech said he had the same problem in the past. Never happened after that. The prob I had with the 2004 Taurus, bought a cheap battery from wal-mart and it ran everything but my car, tech said it's probably the reason the alternator had failed. Check your brand of battery. My battery light stayed on for two months, started fine, switched the battery from the wal-mart one, light went off instantly.
