taurus power steering and power windows

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  taurus power steering and power windows

my 1997 taurus has a problem, the power windows and radio do not work unless the car is in park, also the power steering works hard when the car is in gear. Any suggestions??

The radio and window problem may be a bad ground. The power steering is designed as an assist to your muscle power and is not intended to be used while the car is sitting still (a fact that my wife does not understand). Check the fluid level in the resevoir and does it make any noise?

change the transmission range sellector switch commonly known as a neutral safety switch, ford calls it a MLP sensor which stands for manual lever possion sensor
