I have the same problem as the post in June with battery light flickering and alternator tests good. Battery is new, but power is lost.

I just bought a Ford Taurus SE 6 months ago. Seems to be okay except the windshield wipers going off whenever they feel like. It's pretty annoying so I did some research. It seems they did have a recall on the windshield wipers motors, but I don't think it was for the 99. I submitted a report. Let's see what happens.

Windshield wipers starting randomly is kind of fun, and makes you more alert, wondering what is going on. Well, happens to me maybe once a month, they go once or twice and that's it.
I have the 1999 SE for 2 years now and nothing major. A bolt for sway bar broke, but that's because of the rust. Pretty good car so far.

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus which was purchased in 2002 as a lease turn in. Over the last two years or more we have had a persistent electrical problem. The battery dies completely if the car sits for more than 2 days. You can't even open the doors with the remote. We have replaced the battery twice, new alternator, ALL relays and fuses. I checked at night to see if the trunk light or any other lights were on. Also disconnected the numeric key pad on the drivers door. The car did have a remote starter which was removed at lease end. I have to charge the battery every weekend. Our local Ford dealer had the car for three days and could not find the problem. The computer was also replaced. Please help, thanks.

I bought a 1999 Ford Taurus SE a month ago, and I found the same problems with windshield wipers and the doors. I thought I was crazy, and today my radiator started smoking; I am going to have it checked out, but thanks for letting me know I am not crazy everyone.

It appears that 1999 Taurus has a problem with wipers going on at their own whim. Mine does the same thing. I came to this site to see if I could find a solution. I guess there is no solution. It seems that with so many wiper problems, there would be a common problem that would be known by now.

I searched the network for wipers running on their own in a 1999 Taurus. I found this.

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus with remote start. When I lock the doors with the remote, the parking lights blink, but there is no sound. Isn't it suppose to make a chirping sound when engaged? The theft det light is blinking in the dash window, so it is armed, but no sound.
