#146 of 197 2000 Taurus electrical question
Jul 24, 2010 (8:12 am)
I have a 2000 taurus Flex Fuel. I have has the motor and the transmission replaced. I noticed a while back that when the car is in idle the ac fan and the lights dim. Would that be a sign of a bad diode in the alternator? Or might it be something else wrong?

I found out I do have a bad diode in my alternator. In my 2000 flex fuel Taurus.
I see online there are 110 and 130 amp replacement units some have lower cycle numbers than others as well. I tend to use a good bit of in car chargers and run my lights all the time. Would the 130 amp be better for my car or would 130 amp be too much for the vehicle?

#152 of 197 Turn signal bulb needs replacing on Sable
Jul 19, 2010 (12:22 pm)
The turn signal bulb (small amber colored bulb) in the headlamp of my 2001 Mercury Sable went out. Does anybody know how to access that bulb so I can replace it? Thanks.

Yes I know what this is. You need a new transmission switch. It is on the top of the transmission under the hood on the left side. (If you are sitting in it.) The shift cable is attached to the switch and an electrical connector.
I think the power windows will work when the car is in reverse. That would confirm it.

I am currently experiencing the same problem with my 2002 sable wagon. I have replaced the alt & batt. but to no avail. Someone said it was a superfuse under the hood, but I haven't checked yet. Please let me know what your solution was.

Is anyone having this issue or know a cure.... While driving my 99 Sable, my winshield wipers come on by themself maybe twice every 4-5 months, yst my speedometer needle was out of control, then my O/D light started flashing on/off, recently while driving in the rain the car would appear to cut off while im driving (the dash lights would come on & the car would begin to hestitate and make steering a little rough)
