Was in the parking lot at work preparing to leave and started the car up and the battery light illuminated and displayed check charging system. The steering wheel was locked up and wouldn't budge. I turned off the ignition and turned it back on and the car was able to move and I drove it home. Will be taking it to the dealership today.

2014 Ford Taurus battery is dying. I do not drive this car a lot and it has 93,134 miles. Ive gotton 4 jumps and the car starts right up. I took the car to auto zone to test the battery and the alternator. Both number came back great. Why is my battery dying overnight. Nothing is on that I can see. My engine light is now on. I doubled check all power equipment to make sure it wasnt stuck in place. Nothing. My battery just dies.

On October 24,2016, the car turned the starter over, but nothing else happens - it just will not start. It was towed to garage where it still would not start. The mechanic tried new fuel pump, which would not work. When he tested the fuel pump relay, the car started working, however, the relay was not replaced but exchanged with an identical relay already on the car. Even though the problem was not found, the car seemed to run fine. The car was used for about five days - even a trip this morning. This evening (11/10/2016), I (owner's daughter) went out to move the car and the exact same problem happened again. The car turns the starter over, but nothing else happens. The car has the exact same symptoms as before. I (owner's daughter) called Ford and was informed that there are no recalls on this vehicle. This 2014 Ford Taurus is extremely unreliable -- the car only has ~50,000 miles on it.

2014 Ford Taurus. Consumer states vehicle had a loss of electrical power and messages appearing on console referring to updates needed. The vehicle did not respond to the key fob or keyless entry. It seemed as if the entire vehicle shut down. The updates were performed. However, the message continued to appear.
