'99 Ford Taurus still won't start


Asked by Aug 13, 2019 at 03:03 PM about the 1999 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What is the problem when my car won't start using jumper cables? I get all
the bells and whistles inside the car when I turn the ignition to the ON
position but when I turn the key to start it, I get nothing! Absolutely nothing!
No clicking, no slow engine turning sound, nothing! AAA came out and
tested the battery, alternator and starter....ALL GOOD! While he was testing
it, it started right up after a half hour of sitting. Go figure! Could it be a bad
sensor or a bad ignition coil or....what?

Can be a bad ignition switch.


Will it crank in neutral rather than park? If so, check the transmission range sensor.


does it have a starter relay that is failing ?
