  1. It did! We appreciate it and will definitely help the forum live longer!
  2. Hello! Do you have the digital climate control? If so, it could be your sunload sensor on your dash.
  3. Oh crap... I worry about that with my 94 and 95's I have... Do they suffer from capacitor leakage like computers do?
  4. There's a starter relay I would look into I believe. Also, I believe the transmission range sensor, if malfunctioning, can also prevent it. Are you experiencing any other issues?
  5. Hello all. Sorry the forum went down for a few. And sorry I have not been on as much. Being a full time student and student teacher is not easy... Anyway, with that said. I want to share with everyone that the forum has been fixed, but I am not updating much right now. Here's where we are at: Invision (This forum software) is expired. So I cannot update the license. The cost for that appears to be $25 for 6 months. Next, is our domain (taurusowners.com) - That is $12 per year. This expires on June of 2020. Next, is our hosting service. it appears that is $5 per month. From what I can tell, those are our costs. So, yearly operations is about $122 a year, of course, with taxes, I am going to say about $130. I will maintain this site as best as I can, but I am a poor college student, I can't afford to do much other than volunteer. There's a donate button at the top of the page if you are inclined to donate. If I see donations pour in, I will continue to maintain the site as I do now. If you are interested in helping grow the site, let me know, I can use extra volunteers. Otherwise, the current state of the forum is, once we run out of money, the lights will go dark. I will try to keep more up-to-date information to everyone here. As always, one of the forum administrators can be reached at taurusowners AT gmail.com. I love our community, but forums do not appear to be the future which does make me sad. Questions, concerns, comments, please leave them below! As always, Thank you!
  6. Everything under the hood looks exactly the way I left it. Including the same Duralast battery! Interesting how the new owner isn't posting close ups of the rear like I Did. I wonder if they did a hack job trying to fix it.
  7. I Rebuilt my alternator personally on my Buick Roadmaster, it's working, but the lights flicker when I am driving. Of course, I don't suspect a ground issue as I did replace my ground wires, but I do need to go over the whole car's wiring system one day. The auto parts store tester said it was a good alternator. Kinda wish I just splurged and bought a whole new alternator for it now. However, rebuild shops have better tools, better test equipment, and better knowledge than the crap testers they have at the auto parts stores. Those machines, I know AutoZone and O'Reillys has them, are pure junk.
  8. Aw man, I completely forgot about doing the Gen 3/4 antenna. However, it's very similar to the Gen 1/2. It sounds like your cable has snapped somewhere, and once it gets passed a certain point, it can't push it further, or pull it. You can try using ebay to find a power antenna mast, but make sure it doesn't say it is compatible with a ton of other vehicles, if it is, it probably won't fit. (If it starts saying, Fits: Nissan, Isuzu, Chevrolet, Toyota, Saab) It probably won't work.
  9. Rust repair is a hard thing. The cheaper shop may be cutting out the bad rockers, and putting new ones in, and they may or may not have problems. I did this to my Thunderbird WITH paint repair of the whole body, it cost me around $5500. Best thing is to ask to see any completed vehicles they have, or see if there are reviews posted online for them. Some body shops may have it down to a science that they are cheap. Others may not, so not sure what the pricing difference would be.
  10. Photobucket did screw some stuff up sadly. I wrote this so long ago and I am trying to find the original pictures and writeup, but have been unsuccessful so far. If you are confused about a part let me know, and perhaps I can try to explain it!
  11. Hey all. Since I got rid of my 1995 Taurus Wagon due to the severe rust... I want stuff cleaned out. I have the Vulcan V6 and AX4N in my backyard (All sitting on the subframe). It is free for anyone who has a way to get it out of my backyard. However, it has been sitting forever, so condition is unknown. At first I could not rotate the engine, but now it rotates just fine. It had around 101k miles if I recall, it has been sitting in my backyard since 2016 I believe, under a tarp. Location is in Streamwood, Illinois.
  12. I am pretty sure that the 1999 did not support trans temp as OBD-II in those days were primitive.
