Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES


Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

The digital dash needs taken out and rebuilt or replaced. Ask your dealer about having it repaired or check out ebay. I had one fixed by a guy for my brother inlaw and it worked perfectly.

Those are main engine fuses, not always both used. They power the ECU, ignition trigger, crank position sensor etc. Try ebay for a handbook or owners forum. Google images should provide a diagram

When a battery is totally dead a jump start will take time. The dead battery needs to come back up to at least 8 volts before it will start. Leave you jumper cables hooked up for a half hour or so and try again. What you really need is a battery charger, even once you get it running the alternator is going to have to run for a really long time to fully charge this battery. Also, you should be able to connect the amp to go off with the deck, it's a little more work but it is well worth the effort.

Clicking sound when trying to crank the car. Battery is only 6 months old.


A CLICKING SOUND USUALLY MEANS LOW VOLTAGE. COULD BE LOW BATTERY,OR BAD OR DIRTY CONNECTIONS AT THE BATTERY & OR STARTER. TRY JUMP STARTING WITH GOOD JUMPER CABLES " STRONG CLAMPS & #4 CABLE " . IF THAT WORKS THE BATTERY IS LOW IF IT STARTS CHECK VOLTAGE AT THE BATTERY WHILE RUNNING. VOLTAGE SHOULD READ BETWEEN 13.90 & 14.80. IF THAT IS OK , THE ALTERNATOR IS WORKING, CHECK THE BATTERY

There has to be a code store in the computer that will tell you what might be wrong. the code is the place to start. My 99 sat for a year, and after recharging the battery and getting it started the only code I could get though, was the dead battery or disconnected battery code- but the point is, it started. Check for mouse-eaten wires at the cam sensor and the Crank Sensor. Hey- it could happen...
