Question about 1992 Ford Taurus

2 Answers

My 92 taurus wont start, you turn the key all the power works, but no clicks,no sound, nothing.. I have checked all fuses, all good... has a new battery that is charged... Is there a relay or selonoid somewhere that could be burnt out? I had to jump start it numerous times this winter, it was cold here and I ran the battery dead trying to start it. Where should I start looking, battery cables, starter, is there a selonoid?

You probably did burn up the solenoid! follow the positive baterry cable to it's first junction probably just 12 to 18 inches away from the battery. This three point terminal IS the solenoid. If that doesn't fix the problem get a color coded wiring diagram and locate the starter relay. Other checks will be the Ignition switch (less likely) and the nuetral safety switch

Start with your connections to battery and starter, Also check your ground from your battery. Make sure it's not working lose. Then you can check see if getting power to starter, If you are getting power to your starter and it does'nt turn over Replace starter, The selonoid comes with it . You can get a aftermarket "rebuilt" for about $40Good luck to you hope this helps some.

New battery In mercedes no power


I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

No power and batt is good


My first guess would be a dead cell inside the battery, or a blown fuseable link between the battery and the fuse box.
Someone would need to check the battery connections and fuse box with a meter.

Truck wont start


If you have no fuel pressure at the engine when key is on, the pump is not coming on. Check fuel pump fuse, check fuel pump relay (relay should click when key turned to on-put finger lightly on it and feel for click when someone turns key to on). If no click, signal from computer may be lost, ground for relay may be lost, or relay may be bad. If it clicks, wiring from relay to pump may have failed, or the relay's main power source may not be there at relay-find the fuse link or maxi-fuse that powers that relay. One terminal at relay should be hot at all times-can check for that with a test light.
If pump is working and you do have fuel pressure, you will need to check injector circuit. Post back if questions, or need further help.

92 plymouth voyager wont start and nothing work the windows wont go down the lock and unlock button does nothing idk what the problem is i had the battery tested and the battery is fine what would cause...


Nothing works? How about the headlights, do they work? If yes, then start checking all fuses in the Power Distribution Center or Box under the hood. If no, then look for a bad maxi-fuse in the PDC, and check for a bad fusible link between the battery and the PDC. The battery positive cable goes to the starter, but a pigtail lead off the positive would go to the PDC, to distribute power to all the various circuits on the car.
When you turn the key to on, does the dash light up? If yes, at least power is getting to, and going through the ignition switch. One could then check for power on the starter solenoid wire when key was held in crank or start position.
If nothing when turning key to on-no dash lights, nothing-then check for an ignition fuse in the PDC. If fuse is good check for power being available at the ignition switch connector. If no power there, check wiring between PDC and the ignition switch-if power is up to the switch, but nothing happens with key on, no dash or warning lights, then could have a bad ignition switch.
It just sounds like a maxi-fuse has blown, or a bad fusible link. Good luck.

My 07 Odyssey is not starting in today's cold. There's a clicking sound when I turn the key. Battery is fine. Owners manual indicates it may be a blown fuse, but diagram isn't very helpful in narrowing...


If you are getting a clicking sound, then the starter is not getting enough power. There are three major things that must work in order for a starter to work. A good power source with good connections, a good starter solenoid (puts direct battery power to the starter motor when you turn the ignition to start), and a good starter motor. Usually a clicking sound indicates a fault in the first two items mentioned. If it were a blown fuse, you would get absolutely nothing when you turned the ignition key.

My 98 taurus wont start


Check the battery cable connections. If they are loose or have corrosion on them, it would result in what you describe. Also check the wires to the starter, same thing, you need to have tight, clean connections. This should be the problem, let me know how you make out. Curt

1999 Ford Taurus Wont Start


Tapping the starter does not always work. I would check all the connections on the battery and starter. If these are good replace the starter. Don't forget the grounds.
