We have a 2003 Ford Taurus SE. We installed a new radio a couple of months ago and haven't really had any problems with our car. If we didn't turn the radio off when we killed the car the door locks would lock and unlock continuously. We bypassed the whole security and electrical system when we installed the radio. Tonight we went to crank our car and it didn't even make a noise. The door mirrors blinked on and off and the radio turned on but it didn't do ANYTHING else. Lol but I don't know what to do now. We're stuck at my fiance's Aunt's house and I need help like immediately.

Probably because the way you installed the radio has created the problems. Try disconnecting it then try to reset security system to see if it will start. If no manual look online for your car on how to do it. Also make sure battery is up to charge and no fuses underhood are blown.

DID YOU USE SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO HOOK ONTO YOUR RADIO?

THIS PUPPY WIRES ONTO THE RADIO WIRES (ON YOUR KITCHEN TABLE) AND

SIMPLY PLUGS RIGHT INTO THE EXISTING PLUG ON THE CAR

NO HACKING INTO UNKNOWN WIRES

NO HOURS OF HUGGING THE DASH

NO GUESSING

NO MUFFED UP VEHICLE

THIS PARTICULAR ONE IS FOR A NON-AMPLIFIED SYSTEM (MORE SEARCHING MIGHT NARROW DOWN THE ONE FOR YOUR APPLICATION)

AT THE PRESENT

IF YOU CAN UNDO THE SCRAMBLE YOU MIGHT HAVE

FROM THE SOUND OF WHAT YOU HAVE HAVE DESCRIBED, I'D DRIVE (IF POSSIBLE) OR TAKE THE BATTERY TO AN AUTO PARTS STORE FOR TESTING. THE ALTERNATOR TOO. THIS CAN BE DONE "ON VEHICLE" IF YOU CAN GET IT THERE. THIS IS NORMALLY A FREE SERVICE!

THIS MIGHT AID YOU TOO!
