2001 Taurus cutting out at speed

I have a 2001 taurus 3.0 that has been cutting out between 55 and 65 mph. It seems to lose all power and the only light to come on is the theft light. It only lasts for a split second then regains power and there seems to be no problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: 2001 Taurus cutting out at speed

Are you using an original key? IE coded key? If not the security system may think you're stealing the vehicle and attempt to temporarily shut down power. I'd get the vehicle scanned for codes irregardless if the engine light isn't on. If you aren't using one of the original keys, try one to rule out a poorly coded key problem. You can also check both fuse panels to make sure everything is TIGHT. A loose fuse can cause intermittent problems like the one you mentioned. There are two as mentioned; one under the driver's dash and one under the hood.

I, also, have been having the same issue with the theft light coming on. It has happened a few times when I really jumped on the gas and it has happened when I have gone over harsh bumps. I checked the fuses but can't seem to find anything. Nothing comes up when I scan, either. Puzzled to say the least.
