Re: 2003 Taurus SES starting problems
I hate to add a couple other things here, but is the "THEFT" light flashing on and off when this happens??? If not, I'd check the starter solenoid trigger wire when cranking. When the condition is present, remove the aeroshield (black panel that front fascia bolts to) and using a test light, check for power on the smaller wire going to the starter while someone holds the key in the start position. If power is present, a bad starter. Another thing you can do after verifying that power is at the inop, starter is tap it with a hammer while the key is still held in the start position. Should crank when you do this.
