Q: Switch issue on a Ford Taurus

asked by on

A soft fall up on the Taurus. I hear that it's the TRS, NSN or ignition switch at this point. I'm hoping it's one of those. The engine is in C since I watched a video.

Sure, like I said, the switches go bad all the time on those things. You really want to check that first because it is a common problem. If you need help with this, a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, can come to your home or office to replace the ignition switch for you if needed.
