2001 Taurus was running fine for two weeks (recent purchase) then it simply would not start all of a sudden yesterday. Sometimes it will start and then it runs fine. Last two days spent eliminating ( or trying to) possible cause. It may or may not start if I try again after I get it started.
Automatic trans (column shifter)
no other problems - when it starts it runs fine.
Removed starter and benchtested - ok.
Wires to/from it look okay. Cleaned connections and to battery
Verified battery ok - tried jump starting with another vehicle - no go.
Replaced ignition switch (under steering column).
Swapped starter relay and starter fuses. - OK.
I don't know how to test the Transmission Ranger Sensor exactly? (I have a volt meter/ohm meter. Etc). My Chiltons is vague on exactly which lead to measure voltage on etc.
I am about ready to drive (or have it towed :) to the shop.
have the same problem?
