The ignition coil can't do what you describe.

It almost sounds as if you have some broken teeth on the flywheel that the starter engages.

I would remove the starter, loosen or remove the spark plugs to relieve compression, then have someone turn the engine byhand while peering into the bellhousing with a flashlight where the starter mounts and inspect the flywheel for damage.

With a tooth (or more) worn or broken off, when the Bendix throws the starter gear forward, it may be landing on top of a broken tooth, slipping off, then turning your engine over.
There may be enough tooth even if broken, to stay engaged once the starter has meshed.

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 battery in my 2000 ford taurus wagon drains over night and needs to be boosted in the morning what would be the problem? I put another alternater in it and a new battery and it still drains?


You have what is commonly called an "Ignition-Off Draw". Simply put, something is still on when you turn off your ignition and close all your doors. Aftermarket radios and accessories like remote start units and alarm systems can cause this. If you do not have any aftermarket equipment in your car, a very common problem is a glove box light or the lights in the vanity mirrors in the sun visors. If you cannot find anything obvious, then someone will have to connect an ammeter to your vehicle and start pulling fuses out to identify which main circuit the problem is located on. Once the main circuit is identified, then the sub-circuit can be determined by using the wiring diagrams as an aid. Once the sub-circuit is identified, then that circuit must be traced to find the actual source of the load that is killing your battery.

when the horn starts to honk just put the key in the ignition and turn the car to on, you can also use the key to lock and unlock the drivers door, you are activating the security system by disconnecting the battery doing the above disarms it, if it still won't disarm then you need to see the dealer on this problem
