2005 ford taurus. starting issues


Asked by Oct 17, 2015 at 09:06 PM about the 2005 Ford Taurus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Replaced the starter a few weeks ago and just yesterday put a new battery in
the car.  The car started right up and has been doing great until today.  Now
the car wont start.  All lights come on and are bright.  Seems to have power
going to the starter but just won't turn over.  Tried resetting the computer, but
that did not work.  Could it be a relay switch of some sort?

you could have bought a defective starter, check that you have voltage going to it while someone tries to crank it over, If you do get another one
