2004 Taurus: Parking lights on when car off

On my 2004 Ford Taurus, after I turn off the car, the front parking lights go on and there is no way for me to turn them off. Also, the audible alert bell inside the car dings at a fast rate during this time until I close the door. Has anyone else had this problem?

How do i turn off my parking lights once i turn off the car?


your owners hand book will give exact details but usual parking lights are operated by the turn signal switch, when the ignition is OFF the turn signal switch is used to turn on the parking lights

Where is the fuse for the turnsignal on a 2004 ford taurus


Looks like the 15amp fuse F2-28 is for the turn signals and F2-33 is for the hazard flasher. The fuses are in the box near the parking brake.
See your owners manual for details.

I have a 2004 Ford Taurus whose parking lights will not turn off. Sometimes they just go off eventually, sometimes the battery has to die in order for them to turn off. How do I fix this?


Sounds like the light switch is not always switching off. Try getting at the back of the switch and figure out which wire goes to the park lights (probably one of the smaller wires, you can possibly identify the colour of the wire by removing the tail light cover and seeing which wire goes to the park light globe). Once you identify the wire switch the lights off (I assume the rogue park lights stay on) disconnect the wire. If the park lights go off, the fault almost certainly lies with the light switch. If the rogue park lights remain on then power is getting to the park light wires after the switch. You could try to find where the park light wires are touching live wires ( a difficult job) or cut the old wires off at the switch and the park lights and run new wires from the switch to the park lights.

2004 Ford Taurus. Installed after market Prestige starter. model: APS-620N. Door lock and unlock work. Trunk works. Parking light do NOT light up when programming or locking/unlocking doors. Not receiving...


If this problem started just by changing the starter, either there is a wire unhooked or somehow switched, I do not think the starter would cause that as long as it was the right starter. It should have been identical to the old starter.

I have a 2004 Ford Taurus SEL DOHC that gives me gas cap, parking break and airbag lights when starting and also hasitates when it starts. Any ideas it is occassional for this to happen.


warning lights that come on when you turn the key to ON or START are doing that just to prove out that the bulbs are good, not that you have a problem.

For the hes, clean the MAF sensor wires inside the MAF sensor with spray carb cleaner. MAF is in big hose to throttle body.
