Question about 2001 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

I recently purchased a 2001 Ford Taurus. I notice though that the letters where the shifter are at do not light up ( P, R, N, D, etc.) Is this a fuse problem or a bulb problem? P.S.- I don't know very much about cars...

Hello Bstringer24,
Glad to see that you are looking to learn more about the car you just recently purchased. Overall, the misalignment should not impact the drive ability, but instead only the visual appearance of it being a bit out of the gear. Fuses would not control this. Fuses actually stop voltage spikes from destroying the wiring in the car. The bulbs would simply illuminate what you are looking at on the shifter.

Now to answer your question, there is simply an insert in the location you are looking at. Over time, this insert moves around from typical wear and tear. If it really bothers you, you could take it to a local mechanic and ask them to adjust it for you.

Good luck and enjoy the new car.

2001 ford taurus wont get out of park


Most of the time the problem is caused by the brake switch or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park.
When you turn the key on, power is applied to the solenoid and stepping on the brake cuts that power.

Show what fuses goes where on 2001 taurus


Hi,

The first place to start is the Ford 2001 Owner's Manual.

You can get a .pdf version of the 2001 Ford Taurus Owner's Manual at: http://owner.ford.com/servlet/ContentServer?pagename=Owner/Page/OwnerGuidePage&year=2001&make=Ford&model=Taurus

It has instructions and guides for finding and replacing the fuses in a 2001 Ford Taurus. It starts on page 146-147.

Always use the specific Owner's Manual for the correct Model Year of a Ford or Mercury vehicle. I recently purchased a 2001 Ford Taurus, and had thought that I could use the Owner's Manual from a 1999 Mercury Sable from a friend. BUT, I figured out that each model year can be very different (before any serious damage happened.)

Good luck,

JB

The "L" is missing from the the "SEL" on my 2001


For emblems I go to the junk yards/salvage yards. I usually go in and just peel them off, be careful and take a good blade for removal. The dealer charges ridiculous money for emblems. Salvage yard probably only $5 maybe less.

I need a schematic for the fuse box on a 2001 Ford Taurus. The cruise control quit and I need to know what fuse is the possible culprit.What amp fuse is it?


Check for the fuse and relay diagrams in the owners manual in the glove
box.If you don't have it,I'd suggest picking up a Chilton's Manual,at any
parts store. Good luck.

Take it to another dealer and see if they can figure it out for you. Obviously that dealership is full of idiots that don't have the time for your concerns. I wish I could help you out but, explaining a thumping noise is hard to do if your not there to actually hear it for yourself. I wish you luck and hope it is still under factory warranty.

My ford taurus (2001) wont shift into park!It seems like the shift itself is hard to move into the other gears! I have the emergency brake on to make sure it won't backout the driveway. Help me please!!


how many miles on the car and or transmission, if it feels like the shifter is binding then the linkage is most likely misadjusted, worn, or bent. usally if its the transmission then you will notice performance problems
