Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES


Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

How should I go about diagnosing and repairing a 2002 Ford Taurus with 50,000 miles that is giving off multiple transmission error codes but shifts and runs fine and has no symptoms other than the war


Was the car parked because it had these codes 2 years ago? You need to check all connections for corrosion and or being loose to start with, including the battery cables and then load test battery.. The codes indicate that a sensor or solenoid is not getting power. There is no easy simple way to find out which it is. You will need a book to guide you through steps of diagnosing because the circuits have different voltage signals at different connections.

The A/C in my 2002 ford Taurus SES (about 185,000 miles on it) went out about a month ago. I had the mechanic at the Midas shop in Billings take a super-quick look at my car about 2 weeks ago because there...


if the compressor bearing seized or fell apart than that would cause the belt to break or fall off. You cannot bypass the a/c compressor with a shorter belt. You can either replace the compressor or get a compressor bypass pulley but then you will not have a/c ever again until you install a compressor.

Oil chandes and oil light


Sounds like you may not have gotten a full amount of oil in the car, or you may have a faulty oil sending unit. Regardless of that though, you most definitely do NOT need to change your oil every month. Do another oil change and make sure the proper amount of oil is put in (the capacity is listed in your owner's manual in the specifications section). Try it out and see if you continue to have this problem. If you do, it's possible that the sensor is bad and is telling you that you have less oil than you really do.
