Why would a '96 Taurus lose power steering and radio?
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
This was also the problem with my '96 Taurus... part was also
refferd to a Nuetral Safty Switch"
