Question about Ford Taurus
Hello, The signal you are getting should have a number Code for each problem. You can get a free scan of your car at Autozone, Oreillys, or Advance autoparts to name a few. You will need to fix these problems and have the onboard computer cleared after the repair.
The Parts people can show and selll you the parts to fix it. Some parts may be a simple plug-in solution by changing a part on a connector. Other parts may need to be installed with a wrench or socket and other repairs may need even more work to clear up.
You can list the numbers back on this site and we can tell you more about what you can do. Try to include information about the Year and Model and engine (4, 6, 8 cylinder). I expect the Parts people can explain where each part is installed at adequately for you to make a repair.
If you do not work on vehicles, then use the information you have and ask for prices to get the work done at a Repair shop.
Thanks for using Fixya. I hope my solution is very helpful to you. Between this site and the results of your scans, we should be able to help you fix this.

Disconnect the positive battery cable for 5 minutes. Reconnect it and then drive 20 minutes before having the car inspected.
