Exclamation 96 taurus HELP

Hi,

Well last week, i noticed that finally, without doing anything, my check engine soon light came off... as well did my cruise control and horn stop working...

And now, after my deck and speakers have been installed... this morning i put my radio in for a second, turned it up, then it powered off... as well did my speedometer...

I'm hoping all of this is due to a fuse/fuses... or is it my alternator? Any help would be great! (as well, should i disconnect my battery before pulling out/putting in fuses?)

Thanks,

Re: 96 taurus HELP

it's a good idea to disconnect the battery when working with the fuses.

We can't answer any of your questions until you actually check them.

Smile Re: 96 taurus HELP

When i bought my 96 taurus there was a really expensive stereo in it...and i had the same thing happen to me..i had it REALLY REALLY loud and then the spedometer stopped working and the stereo turned off, so i checked the fuse when i got home and that was it....it was just a silly fuse so i put a new one in and it was back to normal, and by the way, i didnt disconnect the battery..just makes more work than what is really is. hope that helps
