Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
Hello! With the vehicle NOT jacked up...Take a voltage reading from + terminal on the battery to the B+ cable...Turn key to start (hold only long enough to take reading)...If you read more than 2.5 volts There is a high resistance in the starter cable or the ground cable...
Perform same test with meter on + terminal of battery to the starter lead...If you read more than 2.5 volts there is a high resistance in the starter...
Jacking up the vehicle is providing enough torque to make a solid non-resistive connection...Loose starter bolts, poor ground, or poor battery connections are all suspect...
Send a comment with readings..........Guru...........Saailer
