A clicking sound when you try to start the engine is usually caused by the starter solenoid not getting enough power to start the engine--in fact, it doesn't even have enough power to engage the bendix with the starter.
You say you have a new battery--are the terminals clean (and the cables)?
Also, check the ground where it is fastened to the engine.

2006 Ford taurus won't start, starter, altlernator, battery replaced, ignition starter switch, neutral safely switch changed, still nothing


I looked at info for your security system, it is starter motor disable. I didn't see 06 ford Taurus in my database, so I looked at 05.
Battery has a full charge and battery connections all good?
We can usually do some tests to see if starter motor will crank the engine, but, if the security is the problem, it still won't start.
You can check for applicable trouble codes? Try a different key?

2001 ford taurus power draining new battery & new alternater won't work when cables are removed from battery


That suggests that the problem is in the harness, something in the connector or wiring is causing an open circuit. You will need to have the circuit tested to find the fault. Ford alternators have known connector issues & new aftermarket connectors are readily available at most auto parts stores.

I have a 2000 Ford Taurus. My wife left the radio running with the ignition off for a short while. Now the car won't turn over, won't start, won't jump. There is one click when trying to s


The click you are hearing is most likely the start slenoid making contact, however you should short the large wires @ the solenoid to make certain the starter still doesn't run, if so try tapping the starter with a hammer to shift the comutator a litle and try to start. Even if it now starts the starter will continue to give you problems so the proper fix is change the starter

My ford taurus won't start put on new starter and new batterie


New starter and batttery means that the engine must crank well but if the FUEL and SPARK settings are not correct or faulty then the engine will not start.
So please have the fuel checked, from the fuel filter , pump and pressure of fuel.
Check for the spark intensity and timing. If any of the above is absent or is not to the level desired then it must be checked.

My ford taurus doesnt turn on. Lights, stereo dashboard lights all turn on except the engine it sounds like it wants to turn on but it doesnt I dont know what can be wrong with the car??


If the starter is clicking, or the engine is turning over slowly, try replacing the battery or try getting a jump to see if you can get the engine to start.

If the engine is turning over, but won't start, it sounds like you may have a bad timing belt or your timing tensioner or idler has gone out.
