No you have an electronic pressure control and other switches what is the problem your vehicle is having? Go to rockauto.Com and look up your vehicle then go to automatic transmission and you'll find all the switches and solenoid valves

It sounds like you have an air pocket in your system. By the RH strut tower take the heater hose loose from the metal line and fill the cooling system when coolant starts coming out reconnect the hose. If that doesn't work jack the car up where the over flow tank is the highest point and fill the cooling system.

Replace the bulb that stays on and doesn't blink, if that doesn't solve the problem, let me know.

We will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing.
- Spark
- Fuel
- Compression

All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the car to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should! Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Thereis a relay in the Power Distribution Box, that governs the fuel pump (click image for zoom)...


Test it and keep us updated.

It's very possible it could be leaking and need replacing. $500 is too much to pay for this repair. I would get a second opinion and another cost estimate.

Does this engine have a cold start mechanism? I would check that out since it appears to be the source of the problem.

If you could remove the anti-theft system, it wouldn't be called an anti-theft system. Try a different key. If that doesn't work, get it fixed. Those are your only two choices unless you think you know how to rewrite all the software code

I had a 1996 Taurus. My drain plug was on the back of the radiator, by the lower hose. It was a plastic butterfly key type of top. It broke( being plastic), when I struggled to open it. I hope this helps

sounds like your A/C drain is clogged since its in that area...only other drain holes are at the very bottom of the doors which would not cause a build-up of water in the area your talking about...chek A/C drain hose/pipe...if its raining when you find this build-up of water then possibly your windshield needs attention...just squirt a water hose at the windshield in the general area of the leak and have someone look inside for any leaks...Cecil

EVAP leak could be the vent valve or solenoid

First things first, the car while not run long with out the alternator it supplies the electrical power you car needs not the battery, the battery is for starting the car. Go to your local parts store and have them test your battery and alternator, if you don't have a test or, they can do this with the parts still on the car and load test them. If those check out ok then check your ground to starter and frame ground wires for rust and corrosion, if that checks out ok. Remove starter and take to local parts store and have tested to make sure starter solenoid isn't week and that starter is working fine. My guess is one of these things are your issues. Is a check engine light on and if so have you read the codes?
