I have a 1996 ford taurus Gl. My car just stopped working no reason why. I have checked the fuses, replaced the alternator, changed the battery, got a new starter; I am so lost. Can someone tell me what else I can look at I have no clue what to look at next?

If the engine cranks over do the following , check the spark at the plugs. change the fuel filter . check the fuel pressure and flow. check engine compression. check valve and ignition timing as it may have jumped a few teeth.

SOURCE: Draining Battery on 1996 Ford Contour

A battery drain will not be caused by a bad fuse, its called by something draining power that you can not see. We call this a parasitic dran because just like a parasite drains your energy so does this. Its easy to test for if you have a test light. Loosen the negative battery cable and attach the aligator clip to the clamp next hold the post of the test light to the post of the battery and remove the battery cable being careful not to let it touch the test light. If you have any light thats your drain. On some fords you need to give the computers 30 minutes to power down after shutting the car off. if you want to isolate the system thats causing the drain pull and replace fuses one by one, when the light goes out you have your suspect.

SOURCE: 96 Ford Taurus no turn signals or hazards

Take the turn signal lever and jiggle it, a lot. If they start working, the switch is bad. You can also turn on the hazards and take hold of the button and push it left , right , forward and back and see if they start working. If so, replace the turn signal/ hazard switch.

SOURCE: I have a 1996 Ford Taurus GL and need to add freon

if the port you are trying to connect to is bigger than the connector on the hose, then that is the wrong one. that's the high side. you want to connect to the low side, which is a smaller fitting. the fittings for 134a are quick disconnect.

If I have a 1996 ford taurus gl; that stopped working all of a sudden. And I have tried changing the battery, alternator, starter, and fuses. When the car stopped running there was gas that was a month...

check to make sure the fuel pump is working and at the proper pressure which is 35lbs pressure. have you checked this and checked for spark and timing, a bad timing chain. how long has it been since you last changed the fuel filter it could be plugged. you don`t say why you tried a battery, starter, fuses, alternator. how much gas was in the tank and is your gas gage accurate. you may have to add some gas. just some places to start.

1990 Ford Taurus GL windshield wipers park in the wrong position

I have a 1996 Ford Taurus with a similar malfunction the intermittent wiper function is erratic, but the wipers park properly. I'm the original owner & this malfunction was in the car from the factory. I have a regular Ford Dealership manual & came to the conclusion that the Generic Electronic Module located behind the fuse panel is bad (computer glitch in programming) ! Ford Dealers want over $ 300.00 for a brand new module, I haven't checked with my local used auto parts recycler yet, but I know it will be less than the dealer price !
