1999 Taurus won't start

Asked by Sep 10, 2013 at 05:43 PM about the 1999 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My friend has a 1999  Ford Taurus. I won't start. We replaced the starter cause at first
all it would do is click when she tried to start it and the positive cable was getting hot.
Then it sat so long the battery was bad we replaced it. Now all the lights come on and
it dings when you open the door but when you turn the key the lights and the ding shut
off. There is nothing when turning the key. Any suggestions. I am wondering if this
could be a fuse and which one would cause it to do that.

    Always happens after 3rd or 4th stop when running errands. No crank, no click, no nothing. Wait awhile then starts and runs perfectly. 2 auto shops tell me they can't find anything wrong.
