Turn key nothing, but battery still works


Battery still works meaning you have lights that go on inside? That mean you have a little power. Might be battery. Check to make sure you are in the Park gear. If the battery is fully charged and this is happening you starter solenoid is worth looking at. In order I'd go 1) solenoid, 2) Park gear switch (car not knowing it's in Park when it is) or 3) Ignition switch failure.

Starter attempts to re-engage after already running


I agree with Ignition switch diagnosis. Another possibility is a short in the lockout for the gearshift and brake pedal lever. This is suppose to stop you from starting the vehicle unless your foot is on the brake pedal. These get smashed and it should not allow power to go to the starter relay, but if they do cross the circuit, it may provide power to the starter relay. You did not say if the starter tried to engage when you tried to shift from Park.

I think the Ignition switch is the most likely, but I wanted to mention the crushed lockout switch as a remote possibility.

2001 ford taurus wont get out of park


Most of the time the problem is caused by the brake switch or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park.
When you turn the key on, power is applied to the solenoid and stepping on the brake cuts that power.

My 1990 Ford Taurus won't shut off after you get


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.

YOU NEED TO FIND THE STARTER RELAY [SOLENOID] AND CROSS POWER FROM THE TWO LARGE POST WITH A SMALL SCREW DRIVER.IF IT CRANKS OVER THEN YOU NEED A NEW SOLENOID,IF IT DOES'NT YOU NEED TO GET THE STARTER REPLACED OR REPAIRED.

I replaced the ignition solenoid on my 1990 ford Taurus 3.0L Now I have no power on the inside anyone know why I don't have power?


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.

1992 Ford Taurus Starter


I believe the starter solenoid on the fords are separate from the starter. If that's the case the solenoid could be the culprit. It may also be the ignition switch ( where the key goes in) There are several connections that take place through it and contacts can go bad. Fortunately, switchs usually aren't very expensive, maybe 15-20$. Same with the solenoid. Good luck. Please rate this. Thanks

2001 Taurus just died on road. I check the battery, alternator and they checked out ok. I did find a blown 30A fuse for the PCM. When the ignition key is turned I get nothing, not even the "solenoid...


Under the radiator cover there is a box with a rectangular plug. This is the constant control relay module (CCRM). Replace this part. It's available at the dealer. This controls the power to the ignition and fuel systems. Why Ford installed this electrical component above the radiator is still a mystery to me.
