Question about 1996 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

Is it fauly wiring or is there a bad relay somewhere I should change...?

When I first turn on the car everything works, then I lose the radio's sound, then I lose the power windows, and the power steering comes and goes when it wants to as well.

The power steering fluid is full.
Never had a problem like this before, please help! =/

Hi you need to find the common denominator with all these problems as the only circuit that would control the problems remotley is your grounding system or a multi-plug connector where all these wires would join another loom loose connectors bad grounds and see exatly what you are doing when it occurs no matter how daft it may seem yates210456

Lost power steering, car died, changed battery, and barley made it home. The battery has power, but when you turn the key on the dome light and other lights, radio, windows, etc don't work.

Sounds like the vehicle is not charging you may need a new alternator get the car going with jump leads again and test the voltage at the battery terminals with a DC volt meter expect 13.5-14.5 if you get less than 13.5 your alternator is bad or wiring fault also check the alternator belt is tight.

The power steering may fail due to the following reasons:

My 96 Taurus GL has an electrical short somewhere, The radio works on & off , the defrost is out,The speedometor works only every so often, when the lights are on it starts giving me a clicking sound...

sounds like you may need an alternator... theres not a short< your just losing battery power and the steering wheel being hard to turn is probably your engine cutting out... also it could be a seized up pully or a/c compressor...

I have a buick century 2001 or 2002 and when I try to start the car with the key many many times it will not start. It will turn all the power on, lights, radio, windows, unlock the stearing wheel and...

My first thought was a dirty battery cable connection...corrosion builds up and allows contact to work all of your accessories, but not good enough contact to work the starter? Sounds like the problem comes and this is the case, if your Buick has the 3800 V-6 the start sometimes and not sometimes usually points to the crank position sensoe...$35...If your car is running now...does the check engine soon light come on? If so, your local Auto Zone will plug in a testor that can help pinpoint the problem...:)

Gauges and windows loses power.

You need to look behind the fuse panel and make sure all connectors are firmly seated in their recepticles. You've got a marginal connection somewhere.
