1997 Ford Taurus NEW ISSUE PLEASE HELP

Asked by Aug 24, 2015 at 02:22 PM about the 1997 Ford Taurus GL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok.  I have a 97 Taurus GL with 110K miles. When I try to start the car, the power
door locks act possessed, locking and unlocking. The car only starts when I
disconnect the battery for about 10 seconds and then starts fine. I have already done
the following:
Replaced Trans Range Sensor (common cause of electronic freakouts in this model)
Replaced the Ignition Starter Switch (read someone suggested that)

So, who knows what's up? THANKS!

wiring issue for sure. Not sure where to start, sounds like you have might have some corrosion. Check the battery cables? Fuse boxes and other connectors? Might be time to call in the pros/mechanic.
