alternator/ voltage regulator?

Asked by Oct 16, 2014 at 08:56 PM about the 2006 Ford Taurus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

while driving the lights can shut off and the speedometer, gas gage , tachometer and everything will drop to zero and the engine will shut off. This happens more when it rains.

Sounds like you have a bad short or loose/corroded wire(s) somewhere.

Check your wires from the alternator to the fuse box, battery to the fuse box and make sure they are clean and tight.

Thank you. I will try that out.
