It is called the fuel pump reset switch, it is not a toggle switch it is a resettable spring loaded pop up switch, the location is shown in the owners manual under fuel pump reset switch. in the index.

SOURCE: discunected my battery to replace a/c compreser

disconnecting the battery having an alarm system activated the security on it. you will have to get it towed to your local dealer repair shop and have then deactivate the alarm system. i would also go to autozone and buy a devise that you plug into your vehicle to make sure that doesnt happen again.

SOURCE: 99 ford taurus car will not hold back going down

I would start with the 'PCM', or Power Control Module. You will have to take it to a garage with diagnostic capabilities to have this checked. The PCM controls how and when your car shifts, what RPM's it shifts at, etc......

2007 Ford Taurus Theft Light on when attempting to start, won't start with original key. Can it be reset to start?


You will need to have the Ford dealer or a well equipped locksmith program the keys again. As this takes a special electronic scanner to access the module to recode it you can't do it at home.

1. Make sure the trip odometer is NOT on 'Trip A' or 'Trip B' (ie: just the normal ODO). With the ignition off, press and hold the reset button. Press the 'Start' button twice without pressing the brake, but while holding the reset button. The dash will let you know its resetting, just keep holding the button until it is done.


2. Make sure the Trip/Odometer is set to "trip A". With ignition off press and hold the reset button. While pressing the reset button, press the start/ignition button twice to turn ignition on. Keep watching the trip/odometer display to flash the lines (-----) until you see it flash the zeros (00000) then it
