Check all other battery connections, battery to motor and body. Also Motor to Body ground strap. Make sure all connections are not corroded. If that does not help check starter soloinoid and starter

2001 ford taurus power draining new battery & new alternater won't work when cables are removed from battery


That suggests that the problem is in the harness, something in the connector or wiring is causing an open circuit. You will need to have the circuit tested to find the fault. Ford alternators have known connector issues & new aftermarket connectors are readily available at most auto parts stores.

Change a starteer on a 1999 ford taurus


Disconnect the cable from the negative post on the battery. Use a floor jack to raise the car up and use jack stands to support the car. Remove the starter cable and the electrical solenoid motor connector from the starter solenoid.
Step 2
Use a wrench to remove the bolts from lower and upper starter motor mounts. Take the protective cap from the starter motor terminal. Press the retaining tab of the starter motor solenoid terminal connector and pull to remove it. Use a wrench to take off the nut holding the battery cable and take the battery cable off the starter. Usually, these are 1/2 or 7/16th.
Step 3
Take the two retaining starter bolts off, then take the starter out of the bell housing and out of the vehicle. Check the flex plate for damages before putting the new starter on.
Step 4
Place the starter in position and use your fingers to tighten the bolts. Use a wrench to tighten the lower and upper mounting bolts to 16 to 21 foot per pound. Put the starter battery cable back on and use a wrench to tighten the nut to 80 to 123 inch per pound.
Step 5
Put the starter motor connector back on. Push straight on the connector until it clicks, to make sure it's locked in place.
