Question about 1999 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

I drive a 1999 Ford Taurus. My battery light came on so i replaced the battery promply the next morning. After which I followed the instructions in the manual about reseting the idle settings. It drove fine during the day but the battery light faded on and off with the accerlation of the car. On my way home I had the lights radio and wipers on and the battery light was on the whole time and the car actually stalled and wouldn't turn over. Only after getting a jump I was able to drive it home where it stalled out again and it would not turn over.

SOURCE: Ford Taurus 2006 check transmission light comes on

there are dozens of possibilities, and they are impossible to narrow down without a scan tool, and to read the code that the transmission has stored, the most common problem in this cars transmission, is the temperature sensor, which is part of the internal wiring harness, expect about $350 unless you are the original owner, if you bought it new, you may be able to push it through warranty.

SOURCE: 1999 ford taurus stalling, phantom wiper pass and radio pops

this is all to common a problem with the wipers, it is caused by the combination wiper switch, it makes connection all by itself, Ford has issued a TSB (tenhnical service bulliten) on this problem, replace the switch.

there is also a device called a transponder, it is AROUND the ignition switch and this is the part that reads your key code. thim might be your problem, hope this helps and good luck- P.S. i hope you didn't end up paying for the "repairs" that the mechanics made as they oviously havn't fixed the problem and probably were not correctly diagnosed.

Where is the camshaft sensor located on a 1999 ford taurus

Please follow the Instruction below.

1.Disconnect the ground battery cable using a wrench to hold the terminal bolt in place as you loosen the retaining nut with another wrench.

2. Locate the accelerator cable next to the throttle assembly towards the back and top of the engine and remove the shield. Pull the retaining pins using a pair of slip joint pliers if necessary

Remove any other accessories that might interfere with the removal of the camshaft sensor like wiring harness, spark plug retainers or engine cover, depending on your particular model.

4. Move the fuel-injectors wiring harness off the valve cover studs as well to gain access to the camshaft sensor if necessary.

Locate the camshaft sensor around the top of the engine. For more information please click the link below.

6. Unplug the camshaft-sensor electrical connector by pressing on the lock tab and pulling the plastic connector off the sensor.

7. Unfasten the two sensor mounting screws using a Phillips screwdriver and remove the sensor from the engine compartment.

Hope this help

1999 Ford Taurus Wont Start

Tapping the starter does not always work. I would check all the connections on the battery and starter. If these are good replace the starter. Don't forget the grounds.
