You need to have an OBII scan done (Fault scan) Scan will identify what triggered light. Any good parts store (Autozone, Advance, etc...) can do this and for FREE.

03 Taurus intermittent misfire blinking CEL no codes loss of power

If the CEL is blinking this should mean codes are set. Light may go out when intermittent problem cures itself, but code should still be stored. If not, I'm stumped.

All signals and other flashers work but passenger front flashers do not work

Use a test light, test for power and ground at the bulb contacts. Then test for power and ground at the wires. Probably needs a new socket, common problem.

I have a 1998 ford taurus the service engine ligth blinks in and off and the engine is missing

you have at least one cylinder mifring. DO not drive it like this or you will ruin your catalytic converter which is hundreds of dollars. A steady light is ok, but a flashing light means don't drive very far.
Go to autozone & get a feee compuer scan. Get the DTC codes and it will tell you which cylinder(s) are misfiring. It could be a plug wire or a coil most likely.

I have a code 51 blinking air bag light from my 1995 ford taurus. what does this mean

Hi Branda1, It will have to go to a dealer to repair. Air bags are not something you want to do yourself, very dangerous. Here is what code 51 means.. hope this answers your question.. Cobra

Diagnostic Trouble Code 51—Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor Internal Thermal Fuse—Fuse Blown Due to Intermittent Short to Ground Normal Operation
NOTE: The air bag diagnostic monitor contains an internal thermal fuse that is not serviceable. The thermal fuse is controlled by the microprocessor inside the air bag diagnostic monitor . The microprocessor inside the air bag diagnostic monitor will blow the thermal fuse whenever a short on the deployment circuits occurs. The thermal fuse does not blow because of excessive current flowing through it. DO NOT attempt to short circuit the thermal fuse with a circuit breaker or any other type of fuse.

This sounds like a MAP sensor. Have it scanned for the codes to make sure. Your mechanic can do this orany Ford Dealer for 75 - 100.00. I'm 98% sure this is a MAP sensor problem. Any questions please feel free to ask. Chris J.C. Towing

Check transmission light is on

If the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission-control system. When this happens, the computer that controls the emission system usually has a backup program that runs while the fault is present. (These backup programs are often referred to as “limp home” mode programs.) You should get the vehicle serviced as soon as possible, but in most cases, the vehicle will continue to operate, though you run a risk of it dying or not starting.
Get you car up for a good service check.They ought to diagnise the problem.The check engine light staying on is no good.Make it as fast as you can.
hope it helps-
