Have your alternator checked and definitely check the pigtail coming off the alternator. I've seen the pigtails burn up or just come apart.

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!

check the head lights by turning them on if they don`t light up or there dim it`s a dead or low battery, replace battery or try to wiggle the battery cables one could be loose or have corossion build up that would prevent contact with battery if this resolves the problem have the alternater checked to make sure it`s delivering the correct voltage. hope this helps

I let my 2000 ford taurus sit for 5 weeks and now it wont start

If you try to crank it and nothing happens your battery could be dead. See if your lights go on. If not, you probably need either a new battery or a battery jump and charge.

2000 ford taurus wont start. When the key is turned I have no dash lights, or power to the accessories that run through the ignition. I changed the ignition switch today. Thank You Chris

Is your dome light coming on? do the power locks work?
Your battery may be dead, or you may have blown a main fuse (under the hood)

96 taurus shifts out of 1st @3200 then gos to2nd only to gos back

Possible solution:

Too many drivers neglect to change trans fluid or filter until trans is trash.
You might try doing that. Remove the oil pan and install a new filter and clean out the pan gook.
It 's a 25% chance you can drive ok again.

No tail lights or dash lights

It is possible that they are not grounded properly. The ground wire could have become disconnected when replacing the battery or alternator.
