    I did disconnect the battery none of the fuses are blown But there is a fusible link line that runs from the solenoid to the ignition switch that had melted. The guys that were trying to help me fix my car just but a but connector on that line. If I replace that fusible link line do you think that would fix my problem. I don't know to much about cars cause I am just a female but I am trying to do this on my own.

Not a guaranteed fix, but sounds like you blew a fuse to the interior of the vehicle. If you didn't disconnect the car battery when attaching the new ignition solonoid, you might have arc'd or shorted out something. I would first check both the engine compartment fuse box and then move to the fuse box within the vehicle and look for something labeled dome light, interior light, radio fuse or to be safe, just check all the fuses by pulling out each one and making sure they are not blown. Good Luck and hope the suggestion helps.

    The fuseible link may very well be the problem. You should try replacing any burned connectors, loose or cracked wires. Diagnostics on a vehicle without seeing it is terribly difficult. Your fusible link my be the problem but usually a fuse goes before the link. Do you have any power to the ignition key? or is it just dome lights and radio etc?? If no power to anything including key switch then the fusible link may be your answer because there is no power to the larger fuse boxes which both control everything in your vehicle. Keep me posted and let me know if there is anything else I can attempt to help you with.

2000 ford taurus no ignition power


In the diagram, the top wires are voltage to ignition switch, hot all the time, use a test lite to check for voltage, you can see the wire colors. The bottom wires go hot with key in the proper position, check them for voltage, also. I started to trouble shoot your power windows, figuring if you fix one component, it may fix the others. I guess it's 6 of one or 1/2 dozen of another. Several ways to troubleshoot.
Any applicable trouble codes?

I have a ford taurus... that seems to be making a clicking sound when trying to start it... and it wont start? does anyone know what the problem might be?


This problem is caused by a defective starter solenoid, the solenoid is mounted to the top of the starter motor. Generally the best thing to do is just replace the starter with a rebuilt part.

I have a 1990 Ford Taurus and my blinkers don't


blinkers sounds like the flasher unit is not working. It's located under dash. Also check for burnt out bulbs.
Rear defrost, or rear defogger?: Your defogger for the rear window would run off a relay, probably located in the fuse panel of your car. Often, the connections at the rear window get broke or disconnected.
Front defrost: does your heater blower work?

the starter solenoid is bad. very common in the older ford vehicles. had the same problem with my 85 Crown Vic and it was the solenoid. its like a 10 dollar fix. if it sticks after you replace it then theres something wrong with your alternator backfeeding the solenoid, which is usually because it is wired wrong.
