On my 1996 Taurus station wagon (120,000 miles; unsure of engine size), the radio and electric windows will only work when the shifter is in park or neutral (automatic column shifter). At the same time, I also find the steering a little hard, like the power steering pump isn't 100%. When I put the car in park or neutral, all the above return to normal operation, including the steering. I should point out there is power to the radio, just no sound. Also, as I'm driving along, I hear clicking sounds from the fuse box. When this happens, the gauge cluster indicator lights come on like I'm just starting the car (Door Ajar, ABS, Seat Belt, etc). It started doing this only this week.
have the same problem?
