Question about 2001 Ford Taurus
OK, the first thing I would do is to check that the connections are wire brushed as thoroughly as possible and the connections are tightened to ensure a good current flow.
Then, I would get an ammeter (inductive) and put the probe around the negative or positive wire to the battery and measure the amps when trying to start.
If you read 75 to 100 amps and the starter doesn't turn, you know it's a bad starter.
If you read close to 0-2 amps and the starter doesn't turn, then you also have a bad starter possible solenoid on it.
At any rate, you should be able to determine by the amp draw whether the starter is going to have to be replaced.
Good luck on this repair.
