Question about 1999 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus. After a rain storm when I had left my driver window open an inch and a half. I used my headlights normally by using the on/off knob. When I had gotten home, I turned the headlight knob off and the lights stayed on. Also now my dash light doesn't work. I had to pull the 10 amp fuses to turn the headlights off. I removed the headlight on/off switch to see if the headlights would go off when I pulled both plug ins. They stayed on. Help me with this strange please....

It sounds like your lighting module got wet. it may dry out, or you may need to get a new one.

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus that was running great when I parked it yesterday. Today it will not turn over, all electrical is out.


Dead battery. You must have left the headlights on or something. Sometimes when you turn your lights on from the passenger side without opening the driver-side door, the headlights may not go out automatically. Been there, done that!

The outer lenses on the headlamps are grey and scratched so bad that it's hard to see at night. Can I replace just the lense or do I have to replace the whole assy?


You replace the headlight assembly - they run around $75-$100 online for each side.
Sometimes you can refurbish them. There are Youtube videos showing the process.

2006 ford Taurus dash lights not working and alarm when headlights are left on is also not working


If you have the owner's manual, check the chart showing which fuse is for the dash lights and that alarm. Try replacing that/those fuse(s) to see if you're back in working order. (Not sure where your fuse panel would be, but try the area under the dashboard on the driver's side.)

My driver side power window is not functioning properly. The window was cracked about an inch. Every time I tried to roll the window up, I would hear a rapid clicking noise coming from somewhere under the...


I would have to think that it is in the window motor itself instead of the fuse. If the fuse was bad the window would not work at all. The mechanism that controls the window in the door is where I would start.

How do you remove the head lamp assembly on a 1993


1. Make sure headlamp is off and open hood.
2. Taurus model years 1990-1999: you must remove the whole headlamp to replace the bulb. Not a horrible task. Just annoying.
3. Facing the driver's side headlamp, and looking at the headlamp itself, at clock positions 8, 11 and 1 are the headlight housing screws. They all look the same. Using a 10mm socket wrench, remove these 3 screws and set them aside.
4. Just to the right of the "11 o'clock" housing screw is a bolt (same hexagonal 10mm sized top as the housing screws). This just needs a few turns to loosen it.
5. Gently pull the whole headlight forward. Now you can get at the bulb.
6. Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb. Now the headlamp is free to work with. Remove the bulb, replace with a new bulb, make sure the bulb housing cylinder is in place and reconnect the electical.
7. Place headlamp back into position. Line up screw holes. Tighten the bolt. Replace housing screws and tighten.
8. Passenger side headlamp is mirror image of driver's side. Screws at 11, 1 and 4 o'clock positions. Bolt should be to the left of the "1 o'clock" housing screw.

You most likely need a window regulator.

1999 ford taurus with moisture in the headlights


Most headlights lens are sealed up to prevent this problem. A broken seal or a crack somewhere opened up to let in moisture.
You can drill a small hole on the lowest part of the plastic headlight housing to let the water drain out. Or, replace the plastic headlight assembly with a new sealed one.The plastic headlights turn yellow and cloud up over time (not because of moisture inside, because it's plastic getting ruined by the weather and the sun). This problem reduces headlights from putting more light on the road.
The only thing you can do with moisture inside the headlights is to drain out the water that builds up. The seals on the headlights are bad right now and are going to keep letting moisture in. I would replace the both headlight assemblies for new sealed, clear ones.

Get door stop, and pry the window fram back from the car. When you have it about 2 and a half inches open, take a metal/wooden rod and use it to open the handle. Works great, just be careful not to go too far.

Power window problem


First check the power window fuse,
1. Remove the door panel for the affected window.
2. Locate and remove the bolts holding the regulator to the door; it is likely you will have to manually lower the window in order to access the bolts.
3. Remove the old regulator, disconnect all wiring and check the wiring , replace the old regulator with a new one if defective.
4. Tighten the bolts holding the new regulator and reinstall the moisture barrier. Make sure all the wires are put back in the door before closing the door panel.
5. Engage the power window switch and the new regulator should work unimpeded.
