Try cleaning the Battery case. I have seen this before and it is either a dirty battery or a leak in the battery. You can also check this out by removing the battery hold downs and putting a piece of cardboard under the battery or an old floormat. Its a temporary fix and a loose battery will slide around, but you will find that you can isolate the problem to this one area.

Some cars that age and produce an oil mist under the hood are susceptible to this. If this does not cure it, then you may have to use WD40 on the doorjam switches and in the Relay box. You main problem is how it goes away so quickly. It is going to be difficult to find an intermittent problem like this.

Please keep in touch. I would like to know what you eventually find out about this.

2002 ford taurus. headlights have problems.only comes on barely visible practically totally dark at night. have to drive with high beams and only one of those is coming on.


Looking at the diagram, I'd say your headlight switch is going bad. This design puts a lot of strain on the switch. Let me know if you have questions.

Ford Taurus SE 1999. Dome Light - Door Ajar indicator problem. This is an intermittent problem, hence far more difficult to isolate. OK. I will be thorough in describing this "set of problems" as I do...


i must say that i feel your pain with this,, my door ajar light does the same thing but my dome light doesn't come on when the doors are open, i have to flick the switch on the dome light to make it come on. In my opion and i stress my opion it saounds like a issue with the body controller, im not sure what ford calls it but it controls all the body functions, i dont think the low coolant light is connected to the body contoller but i dont know this for sure, i think that light is controlled bny the engine ecm. some times a dealer can connect to the body controller and see if there are any fault codes for circuits that it controls and or monitors, also they can reflash or update the configeration and or calibration level cause ford release's fixes for issues all the time, same theory works for any control module on a vehicle. i dont think any of the auto parts stores have the right program to connect to bofy controlers but i could be wrong, worth looking into. i only put up with mine cause i use it as a beater, if you are worried about your dome light staying on and drianing your battery then you could pull out or disconnect the dome lights for the time being, its not a fix but just a band-aid.

F350 horn blows and dome light comes on randomly


Is the battery fully charged.
Sounds like you have a short in or near the fuse block. Best taken to a good mechanic to have it checked.

2002 Ford Taurus has no power. No head lights no dome light no horn blah blah. Ok first of all my cars alarm kept going off by itself off and on for 2 weeks. I come out to start the car and it goes click...


One possibility is that the battery terminals are either corroded or not tight to the battery posts. Second, the battery itself may have seen its days. Try another battery of simply replace it. If the problem still exists, the have a mechanic inspect the main wiring from the battery to fuse block. Your alarm device may have its own battery source. The tick tick are the cars systems relays trying to engage, but there is not enough power for them to engage.
