WELL YOU MAY HAVE EITHER A BAD ALTERNATOR/CONECTION OR YOU ARE DISCONECTING THE NEGATIVE SIDE OF THE BATTERY FIRST. TRY DISCONECTING THE POSITIVE SIDE FIRST IT SHOULD THEN STAY ON.

when the battery was disconnected on a 1996 kia sephia or deterrent system, why did the car stop working?


Its unlikely that it is related to getting a new battery. Make sure that during the process of replacing the battery that any emissions hoses or wiring were not disturbed or disconnected.


I had this exact problem on my 1996 Taurus. The solution in my case was to replace the transmission range sensor. I replaced it myself. It was easy to change. I can't say if that is what is wrong with your Taurus, but it was what was wrong with mine. Good Luck! This was also the problem with my '96 Taurus... part was also refferd to a Nuetral Safty Switch"

It might have some other problems on the motor or any other place in the car.




On the 1996 Taurus it is located in the CCRM which is not serviceable you will need a new one from the auto parts store or from a junk yard. They average 150 at auto zone. The ccrm is right next to the battery its a little box that plugs in.


If you are trying to sell the car and you just want the light out, you can disconnect the battery, but the light will come back on, maybe right away. The best thing to do is find out what's wrong. Have it checked out.

According to the 1996 Ford Taurus Owner Guide : For the 3.0 liter " Vulcan " V6 engine ( BCI group size 58R or the optional 36R ) -------------------------------------------------------- For the 3.0 liter " Duratec " V6 engine ( BCI group size 36R )


you may be able to access the latch from underneath the car, you may have to remove any guards/shrouds


In a 1996 Ford Taurus ( 5W-30 ) according to the Owner Guide


It will not fit in the space provided or the posts may be reversed. As long as you connect the positive and negative terminals correctly it will function as any battery should. Just make sure you do not buy the wrong battery.



According to the 1996 Ford Taurus Owner Guide : ( 16.0 U.S. gallons )


Have you checked your fuses? this is the most likely easy fix for this problem.. Unhooking the battery should not have done anything to the radio. You either have a fuse issue, or a bad radio.


The 1996-1998, and much of the 1999 model Taurus & Sables are virtual twins of each other - making the parts highly interchangeable.


No, a Generation 2 (1992-1995) Taurus/Sable Windshield will NOT fit a Generation 3 (1996-1999) Ford Taurus/Sable.


The 1996 Taurus/Sables came equipped with v6 engines, so there are 6 cylinders total.


If your battery has been disconnected recently (and therefore your radio has been reset), you may find the code has reverted to the factory setting: 1111.
