My Taurus won't turn over. I have power for the radio, wipers, windows and light. But when I turn the keys it doesn't do anything. Any ideas?

Could also be a weak battery. Get it checked out. Do you have a multi-meter? It should read 12.4Volts or higher with the car off. Autozone and other parts stores will check your battery for free. Remove it and bring into themfor diagnosis.

I have the same problem. I changed the starter and it still won't turn over.
