1994 Ford Taurus/warning lights causing problems?

  • 1994 FORD TAURUS
1994 Ford Taurus 175,000 miles.
When I first start my car all of the dash warning lights come on for a split second which is normal. But as I accelerate and get about 1/2 a block away all the lights will flicker and the car will "jump" like it is going to stall, but doesnt actually stall. This is a recent development. Then, when I went to start my car today, nothing happened! The dash lights came on but no start. It did start on the 3rd try and ran fine. I did notice that my radio was on am and the memory buttoms needed to be reprogrammed. The check engine light alone has never lit up, but the ABS light does come on momentarily while driving and then goes out. Any ideas? Young lady w/ little money and no car smarts! Thanks
Do you

You are loosing ground in the electrical system. Check the ground from the battery to the engine, from the engine to the body and from the battery to the frame. REMOVE them and clean them well. Also check the + lead and insure the small wires leading from that post are connected. That should fix your problem. Good luck
