Question about 1999 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Engine will not turn off. My mothers 99 Taurus will not turn off. you can turn the ignition off and take the key out of the ignition but the engine still runs. i had to disconnect the battery to turn the car off. there is also a strange almost grinding sound when you try to put the car in park. the car will go into park ( but will make a sound that is like to pieces of metal rubbing against each other but not like gears grinding not that loud) and like I said you can turn it off and take the key out but the car will not turn off. anyone ever hear of this happening?

How to start a Ford Contour with out my key


Probably can't be done if it is late enough to be fitted with a security system. In that case the key will have a coded transponder which the system will recognise and send a signal the the engine management to switch it on.

You either need a correctly coded key or remove the engine ECU and have it decoded.

if it did this when the starter motor was engaged when this happened then it would be that that is a fault and it has blown the main fuse in the engine bay fuse box. could also of damaged the ignition relay in main fuse box.

Ford 99 Taurus ignition fuse keeps blowing every time key is turned


A bad something, yes.
The fuse may be the primary fuse for the key switch. If it is, you would need to disconnect the key switch harness and check for a short to ground on each circuit.

2010 corolla key stuck in ignition


It can be faulty ignition lock cylinder.I suggest to wiggle the steering wheel a bit and see if the key gets released out.If that is not helping then first turn steering wheel to right and try removing the key,or next turn steering wheel to left and see if you can remove the key.
----------
Spray wd-40 in the ignition key hole and let it remain there for few minutes,after that once again try to remove the key and see if that helps.
---------
But if that is not helping then ignition lock cylinder has to be removed out and key has to be manually removed.

My '98 Ford Taurus won't start


"Security" or Key-shaped light flashes on the dashboard ? Your car might be equipped with an immobilizer. (you can find more information about the immobilizer in your owner's manual). The immobilizer allows the engine to run only if the correct key is used. If your car has an immobilizer, you probably see a "Security" or Key-shaped light coming on on the dashboard every time you turn the ignition ON. If this light is flashing when you turn the ignition ON, it could mean that there is some problem with an immobilizer or the system does not recognize the key. If the immobilizer doesn't recognize the key, the engine wold not start at all, or would start and then die in few seconds.
You can try a spare key, if it won't work, your dealer is the place to call. Sometimes, the key is just need to be reprogrammed.
