Ford Taurus Battery Keeps Going Dead After Recharge

Reader Question

It’s me again sir,

It seems like both of my Ford vehicles want to act up right now…..My 2003 Ford Taurus SE battery died yesterday. I recharged the battery and it is dead again today.

I jumped the car to get it started and it started with no problem….when I took off the battery cable the car died again…could this be an altenator or regulator issue???


Well hello there again…

I would first try a new or a known good battery in the car and see if you just have a bad or weak battery issue. If that does not solve your problem, you might have a bad alternator or some other charging issue.

Make sure the battery cables are clean and TIGHT, a loose cable can cause all kinds of problems.
