FORD TAURUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Nov 21, 2004.FORD TAURUS 2003, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:STARTER ASSEMBLY:SOLENOID . i have a concern of regarding a safety issue on my 2003 ford taurus. i am not sure if this is the right place to lodge a complaint, but would direct me to the right source if not.*ak sunday, november 21, 2004, i changed oil on my 2003 ford taurus. like many vehicles i have changed oil on, i was not very pleased with the location of the oil filter. it is located beneath the manifold (extreme heat) and above the solenoid for the starter. it was the solenoid that i was suspicious about and that suspicion came true sunday evening. when you take off the oil filter, oil drips onto the solenoid. i cannot imagine why an engineer would allow a location for a flammable liquid to drip onto a power source. when i used a filter wrench to get the oil filter off, the wrench knocked off the protective cap that covers the power leads and ground to the solenoid. what happened after that was not a positive experience. the oil wrench and the power leads made contact and immediately started sparking. the sparks in turn started a fire in my engine compartment and melted the metal band that surrounds the oil filter wrench. as quickly as i could, i grabbed some rags and doused the fire. as far as i could see, no damage was done to the electrical wires. aside from getting shocked from the solenoid and getting minor burns i am okay. however, that is not the issue. what if i had not put the fire out? would the car and possibly my garage been engulfed in fire? i contacted the service department where i purchased the ford taurus (valley ford, fargo) and voiced my concern. the service technician agreed that this solenoid was in an awful place. he also said to make sure the protective cap was placed over the terminal leads of the solenoid again. please advise me as to what my next step is. or, is this a safety issue that i am overreacting to? i anxiously await your response. .Vehicle was on fire. 1 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 23400 miles.

Ford Taurus 2003 Visibility Defroster/defogger System Windshield Blower

Ford Taurus 2003 Visibility Defroster/defogger System Windshield Blower Review #10125251

FORD TAURUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on June 13, 2005.FORD TAURUS 2003, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with VISIBILITY:DEFROSTER/DEFOGGER SYSTEM:WINDSHIELD:BLOWER . recently i noticed that there was water leaking into the passenger side floorboard after a heavy rain. a day later, my air conditioning stopped working and i could hear a gurgling sound coming from the system. i took it to the dealership and they told me that they had to install a "rainhat" kit over the cabin filter to prevent water from leaking into the blower motor by way of the cabin filter. well, the question becomes, why wasn't there anything there before? i went home and did some research and saw that ford issued the following tsb regarding the issue: 14 of 53: visibility:defroster/defogger system:windshield:blower bulletin date: aug 2004water in the blower case or on the passenger side floor, an inoperative climate control blower motor, a motor that operates on high speed only, and/or a blower motor resistor failure. vehicles built 5/1/2001 to 12/15/2003. *tt repair was $500. he's my concern. ford must have known there was design flaw if they (a) posted a tsb and (b) developed a "rainhat" kit to solve this problem. basically any owner that has a car built between those times will be doomed to pay this repair if they weren't lucky enough to have this fail before the warranty expired. i think that's absurd! i've talked with other owners and they were lucky enough to notice the leak before their blowers went out. the dealerships charged them upwards of $100 to install the "rainhat" kit. if i would have known that this was a problem i would have gladly paid $100 for the kit rather than $500. my dealership even admitted that this happens quite often, but they can't do anything about cost until ford issues a recall. again, this is a design flaw that needs to be addressed by ford. i don't believe it's right for the consumer to have to pay for a product design flaw. the safety concern here is of course the windshield defogger not being able to operate. .Ford Taurus 2003 problem was reported in LANSING, MI.

FORD TAURUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Sept 15, 2005.FORD TAURUS 2003, manufactured by Ford Motor Company had a problem with VISIBILITY:DEFROSTER/DEFOGGER SYSTEM:WINDSHIELD:BLOWER . i had noticed some water leaking into the passenger side floorboard but could not determine it's source. apparently, a cowl (i may be misspelling) was cracked and leaking into the blower motor which caused the blower motor to fail. the $400 dollar repair is hefty but i don't have much choice. with a michigan winter right around the corner, a broken blower would be a huge safety issue as my windshield defrost won't work. the dealer said this is a common problem which sounds absurd for a car that is only two years old. apparently, ford has issued a technical service bulletin regarding this issue and developed a kit which solves the problem. they are aware of the problem and should not expect their customers to pay for an obvious design flaw which may compromise a passenger's safety. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 84000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Dec 06, 2005.FORD TAURUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with STRUCTURE . shortly after purchasing our 2003 ford taurus wagon, we noticed extensive water on the passenger side floor. we took car to newport ford, an authorized ford dealer. we were informed that there was a design defect which allowed water to overflow the rainhat and travel through the heater system to the floor. they "fixed" the problem under warranty. several months later, still under warranty, we noticed water on the passenger floor again. having moved, we took the car to howell motors of wright's corners, ny. they too were aware of the design defect, and were in possession of tsb # 04-15-3 which clearly indicates that this problem will lead to the failure of the blower motor, and/or blower motor resistor. we not being automobile mechanics, were not aware of the certainty of a defrost system failure. not knowing that this was a safety issue, we did not insist that they replace all the damaged components. last week, the defroster blower suddenly failed during the first snowstorm of the year. water and slush from passing traffic froze to the windshield reducing visibility to zero. was forced to limp home, stopping at gas stations to scrape and clean windshield. researched on internet, and learned that ford has issued a service bulletin for the exact problem we took the car in for twice while under warranty. took the car back to dealer and were informed that this was no longer a warranty issue, and were charged $ 267.26 for a new blower motor, to replace the one destroyed by the water pooling in the heater system. we argued that this should be covered by the warranty, as the car had been in twice previously, while under warranty, for the exact same problem. as the car was clearly unsafe to drive in upstate new york in the winter, we paid the dealer. ford is trying to pass this off as a "comfort" issue, while in reality, having zero visibility from the windshield is not only unsafe, but illegal in ny state. *nm .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 2000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on Jan 22, 2006.FORD TAURUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with STRUCTURE . just like every one else. my heater blower quit working on all modes except high. then within a couple days high went out. i tested it and found the resistor to be bad, but when i by-passed it, the blower motor was also bad. that's when i knew there was more to the story than what i was seeing. i noticed that the resistor had rust on it. this was not good, when i opened the fan motor casing i found water in it. this is not supposed to happen. the seal is faulty (defective) . i researched and found out that there is a bulletin out on this at ford dealerships so ford is aware of this problem, but not obligated to tell customers. so if you still have a warranty it's covered only if you contact ford. if you do not have a warranty no longer than you are responsible to pay the bill. they have not put out a recall because not enough people have complained. most take it in to service and ford repairs and charges them, usually without telling them about the defective seal. i am currently fighting with the ford dealership and have called and made complaints. my vehicle is not fixed at the moment, but i am determined. they knew about this defective seal, but yet did not have the common courtesy to inform their customers and have the problem fixed before it cost approximately $400-$500 for those without warranty instead of saving the $300-$400 . something needs to be done about ripping off customers, and making them pay the price for another's knowing mistake. this leads to electrical problems and is a fire hazard lourie. *nm .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FAFP53233A.

Ford Taurus 2003 Exterior Lighting Brake Lights Switch Review #10196687

FORD TAURUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on May 10, 2006.FORD TAURUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING:BRAKE LIGHTS:SWITCH . over a year ago, i noticed that it was hard to get the gear shift to move from the park position to drive or reverse in the 2003 ford taurus. no matter how hard i tried i could not get the car into gear. finally, something told me to push down on the brake pedal,hard, and then it would release. i would do this for a few days and then it would not happen again for months. each time that this occurred it would take longer and longer to get the car into gear, then again, it would disappear for months, then start all over again. i finally took the vehicle to a reputable repair shop, and it would not fail for them, but intrigued, they told me to bring it back whenever it occurred again. months later, you guessed it, the problem returned with a vengeance and lasted more than just a few days. the only way it would release is when i really stomped down on the brake pedal. back to the shop it went because my brake lights would not always work , but the turn signal would. that is a dangerous situation. this time the mechanics called ford who told them that they did have a problem with certain cars and asked for the vin #. for some reason, even though there was a technical bulletin, my vin # number did not fall under the recall, even though it was having the same problem. that makes no sense to me. even though this was not an expensive job, i feel that ford should reimburse me. after all, i did have the same problem. when the mechanics received the brake light switch to install, the part had been completely redesigned. that tells me that ford knew of the problem and addressed it, but only for certain vehicles with specific vin numbers. *ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 32000 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on May 28, 2009.FORD TAURUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with SUSPENSION:REAR . the rear spring on our 2003 ford taurus broke overnight. as we tried to drive it in the morning we heard a grinding noise coming out of the wheel well and pulled the car into the driveway. we removed the tire and discovered the spring had snapped and the jagged tip was grooving the inside sidewall of the tire. had this happened on the highway, it would surely have blown the tire. replacing both rear springs cost $590.07, and replacing the tire under a road hazard warranty cost another $86.78. the car has only 76,200 miles on it. in researching the problem on the internet we discovered this is a very common problem with front and rear springs on the ford taurus, all the way up through the 2004 models. for recent complaints, see: http://www.consumeraffairs.com/automotive/ford_springs.html does it take someone to die before something is done about this? these spring breaks often destroy the tires. my ford mechanic tells me they see these failures quite often, and admitted ford has a problem with their springs. why is nhtsa allowing this to continue? it would be a simple matter to ask all ford service departments how may of these failures they have seen. the website i gave you above should give you a sense of how bad this problem has become. *tr.Mileage was 76200 miles.

FORD TAURUS 2003 car safety problem was reported on July 28, 2003.FORD TAURUS 2003, manufactured by FORD MOTOR COMPANY had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . while driving at highway speeds (65-70) when accelerating to pass, car bucks violently (at 70k miles on odometer). also, random rough idling since date of purchase of vehicle in july 2003. after taking car in numerous times to dealership while under warranty and they were unable to diagnose even after hooking up recorder. did my own research on line and discovered a faulty camshaft synchronizer was the problem. this is a $400 repair that ford is aware of as there is a service bulletin on it. however, the failure rate is usually after the warranty expires making it the responsibility of the consumer. i have also personally spoken with a dozen taurus owners who have experienced the same problem. lodged a complaint with ford motor company who did not respond or follow through. very disappointed as this could pose a serious safety problem for consumers not to mention catastrophic engine failure if the synchronizer fails completely. if your taurus has a rough idle that is intermittent and the diagnostic says there is no code, it is probably this problem as the service bulletin from ford indicates that the cam synchronizer does not throw a code to the computer system. also, if your car bucks or hesitates on hard acceleration or there is a high pitched chirping sound, it is the cam synchronizer. if you take it to the dealer tell them what it is so they don't charge you an additional diagnostic fee that will show no problems! it's bad enough to have to pay $400 for a part that shouldn't fail, but does after the warranty expires. ford should have issued a recall on this and other vehicles that had the same problems (know to occur in the f150 as well). *tr.Mileage was 68454 miles.
