How do I tune up a 2001 taurus ses?

There have been no tune-ups in 25 years

Technically since 1980 some 32 years

Only spark plugs left from those days

The ECM,PCM in your case,or the computer
if that suits you,it does the tuning

That is a term the repair shops should stop using,
a long time ago,they have enough issues, without
misleding people.

You should have a maintenance log, for all your vehicles
You should have at least, an owner manual

Clean MAF Sensor ---every year
Brake Fluid---every 2 years
Air Filter,Cabin Filter---every 3 years
Spark Plugs,Trans Fluid, Power Steering Fluid ---every 3 years
Gas Filter--Every 3 years

Brakes--- need to come apart for inspection,rust removal & lube-every year
The System should be Scanned a couple times a year for stored data,
codes & other issues
If you look into the computer & monitor how it see things,you may avoid
problems & break down repairs

Just a few items,always something to do,have to be proactive

2001cav 2.2 put the key in and can't turn itj everthing is locked up any ideas.

Does your vehicle have a security system? If so, it might need reset. This would cause it to lock up. Try moving the steering wheel back and forth, left to right, while you are trying to turn the key. You might be able to get it unlocked this way. Your steering column may have locked up. If not, you may need to get a new ignition switch. I would try moving it back and forth. Don't be afraid to give the steering wheel so major pressure. Hope this helps.

I finally found the solution. It is actually detailed in the owner's manual but you really have to hunt for it. Look at page 450/451.

Step 1: Switch the display to the trip meter A with the engine running.

Step 2: Turn the engine off (but don't turn the key all the way to where you can remove it from the ignition).

Step 3: While pressing the trip meter reset button, turn the key to IGNITION ON (but don't start the engine). Continue to press and hold the trip meter reset button until the trip meter displays "000000".

2002 dodge ram 1500 flashing red light and dead

When you disconnected the battery, you tripped the alarm which locked down everything. In your owners manual, look under the security or alarm system. It will tell you how to disarm your particular alarm system. If I am not mistaken on these you put the key in the drivers door and lock and unlock it 2-3 times. If you do not have the owners manual, you can contact dodge and they will walk you through it.

Security light comes on and car doesn't want to start sometimes.

Disable the passlock system permanently. The other functions will still work just fine. The passlock system for some mystery reason sometimes senses an intrusion even if there is not one and locks down the fuel injectors. Underneath the steering column there is a metal plate held in place with a few bolts. It needs to come out. In order to do so you may have to remove some dash components but it is not as hard as it seems. Once the plate is removed running up the steering column there will be (3) wires bundled or tied together. These are the wires for the passlock system (Yellow + Black - and White neutral) It is the only group of 3 configured like this. START the car and while the car is running snip the YELLOW wire ONLY! and tape off the ends. Put everything back together and live better knowing your car will now start each and every time. The Yellow or Orange security light will stay on permanently but this will not cause any other problems.
