Question about 1996 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

I have a 1996 Ford Taurus. Got a new battery (First I ever had to replace) after putting it in (same spec battery as the factory one I replaced) the Car alarm makes the Lights flash for about 1-2 mins after I start it... then it runs fine... No siren, no horn beeping... just lights flashing... How can I disable the factory alarm... it isnt worth stealing anyways... its a winter rat for my vette.

To disable the alarm you must go to the specialised ford garage. They will hawe all the codes and equipment to fix that. You may want to stay away fromunqualified guys. They will charge you for the job, but the problem can come out again.

I need the cheapest way to replace a key chain lock unlock switch for a 95 ford taurus

Hard to figure out what you are talking about. If you mean the remote which attaches to your keychain and unlocks the doors, then you can buy a used one on ebay for about 10 bucks, put a new battery in it, about 4 bucks, take it to a dealer and have them teach your car to recognize it, about 20 bucks or free depending on
your persuasive abilities.

Whats easiest way to remove and replace engine in a 1996 ford taurus from the botom or out threw the top

depending on how your set-up makes all the difference. if you are doing it in the drive way out the top is the best. if you have a shop and a lift then top or bottom is almost the same. coming out the top is a little harder if you haven't do it before. so if you have a lift and equipment the bottom is best.
