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.
