The contact owns a 2006 Ford Taurus. The contact stated that the vehicle would exhibit a loud noise when starting. In addition, the vehicle would also stall sporadically and without warning, the air bag warning light was illuminated and the headlights would continuously deactivate. Neither the dealer nor the manufacturer was notified of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 90,000 and the current mileage was 117,340.

I have a 2006 Ford Taurus and within the past couple of months it will die while sitting at a redlight. I have to turn off the ignition and restart the car and that usually solves the problem. This has happened about 6 times in the past 2 months. Today, however, it stalled at a redlight and I restarted but as I continued driving, the RPM would drop rapidly when I hit the breaks and it acted like it would die. I continued driving and was going about 45 miles an hour and all of the sudden all the odometers dropped to zero and everything on the dashboard went out. I pushed the gas pedal and then everything came back on. Very strange and now I'm worried the car might die when I'm actually driving and not sitting at a redlight.

This is a government owned fleet vehicle (the Florida department of law enforcement). This vehicle has stalled five (5) times. I took the vehicle to the Ford of pompano beach dealership and they could not find anything wrong with the vehicle.
