Asked by Nov 06, 2015 at 10:45 AM about the 1998 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After I got the new battery it seemed
fine then it broke down again and I
had my cousin look at it cuz he's a
mechanic and he isn't sure it could be
electrical or the ignition. Its not the
starter or alternator and def not the
battery

What is the condition of the battery cables? Voltage on the battery now?

They aren't bad. The battery is brand new. The interior lights and head lights turn on but when I turn. The key there's nothing but silence.

Someone else took me to get it and it wouldn't start they said it's the starter. Any thoughts
