I recall in the old days what you would hear buzzing like that is a voltage regulator relay box of some sort, definitely check your battery voltage. A car sitting a year needs a charge at the very least even if somethings light up. Plus get some fresh gas in that tank.

They're shouldnt be any computers near the radiator. Your coputer would be mounted inside the car or on then fender/firwall (away from heat). Make sure the battery is fully charged and that the distributar cap/rotor are not corroded. Also make sure the gas hasn't gone bad (get water in it after sitting). Put some water remover in the tank and try to ad fresh gas if your not able to drain the tank. You could also have bad/clogged injectors after sitting but highly doubtful if it ran fine a year ago. Check the easy things I mentioned first. Spray som starting fluid in the throttle body while holding the throttle wide open when starting (need 2 people for this) see if it tries to fire, if it does try you are not getting gas or not good gas. Out the water remover in first and as much new/fresh gas as possible.

2000 ford Taurus will not turn over tried everything I can think of battery fues and starter all good been sitting for 3 weeks will not start and the shifter is now not aligned properly


The engine will no crank , want to verify what you got happening Here . Do you have a crank - no start or a no crank no start ? Some people on here get this mixed up ! Or when you turn the key to the start position does anything happen ! If when you turn the key to the start position an nothing happens , check the start relay in the under hood fuse / relay box . # 22 also check fuse 30 - F107 40 amp , Do you know what a relay is ? Also check fuse F237 15amp fuse in the central junction box inside the car under the dash , could be left or right side .The shifter not aligned how , not in park ?

Do you smell gasoline fuel ?? When there's too much fuel, it saturates the spark plugs, preventing ignition. Let it sit for an hour to let spark plugs dry, then it starts OK later. Next time, turn starter without giving any throttle or very small throttle as engine turns. Myself, when my 2006 Dodge Plymouth minivan (sitting in storage) needs to start, I squirt (half second) starting fluid into air filter, close the air filter housing to trap flammable gas from starting fluid, then turn the engine without pressing on throttle. When the engine starts is when I give it a little throttle to bring up the RPM to 2,000 until it idles on its own without stalling from cold engine.

Mom's 2001 Taurus SES has


Usually with heat issues, electrical components are affected. It may be fuel pump relay, found in the relay box under the hood. CHeck also if you have spark when this happens during start. If there is no spark your ignition system may be faulty. Inspect first the hi tension wire for loose connections. A bad distributor means no or intermittent signal will be detected by the computer from it and in turn it will not activate the fuel pump. It could be either one of the said issues or both may be the cause.
