You should check the alternator to see if it is putting out the voltage it should. (13 to14 volts) If not the car is draining the battery until it quits running. putting the lights on would just speed up the process

I just bought a new battery and alternator for my 98 ford tarus but car still keeps dying i checked the cable posts and chased the power and ground wires but they are secure what is wrong


you don`t say if you know why it dies because the battery is dead or it stops while driving.check the fuel pressure with a gage.it could be a pump problem or fuel filter.are you loosing spark when it stops running.have you checked for spark.have you checked to see if there is a code in the ecm(computer) that need to be checked out.start with the above to know which way to start to find the problem

I have a 2006 Ford Taurus on which the battery has died. I jump started the car and drove it to the mechanics and had the battery replaced. Now the radio/cd/stereo player doesn't work. Everything else...


You need to enter a security code found in your owners manual, sometimes when the battery is dead for a certain time or replaced, it goes into security mode.

98 ford taurus lights, radio, and acessories come on but car won't start. Must bost battery every time in order to start. What could be causing this?


You have a bad battery. It has plenty of Volts but no amperage. Most likely it has a dead cell. Replace the battery to solve the problem.

2004 ford taurus occasionaly wont start right up.


Can you tell me if it was in fact the starter? I have an 04 Ford Taurus with 99K miles on it. This week when I started it up, not everytime but often the abs, brake, tire and traction control lights will stay on. Also the computer display will read either park brake engaged or passenger door ajar. I turn it off and start it again and the issue goes away. This morning it acted as though it had a dead battery and I had the clicking sound behind the dash as well as the vibrating needles. Thanks!
