I just bought a 1994 ford taurus wagon 3.8 liter v-6 auto power everything.
Ihad to put a new battery in it and in doing so I popped something all
fuses in fuse panel are fine and in power dist box under hood. heres the
problem the guy i bought it from wired the cooling fan to ignition so when
the switch is in the on position the fan is running, when i put the new
battery in the fan radio and clock only run in the acc position and not
when the ignition switch is in the on position if you have any answers
No, don't worry, there's not much you can do about it. It appears you are
posting at a website (talkaboutautos.com) that happens to port their

Well, you might want to address the potential bigger problem first.
If the guy hot wired the fan like this, it might have been to cover up
the head gaskets leaking and the temp gauge is jumping around.
The fan is controlled By the CCRM module above the radiator.
I would restore its proper hook up.
If the wiring is too cobbled up, your going to need the factory shop manual to
get it figured out. Now, one thing you need to see
is if you have power to the fuses. Its not just a matter of the fuses
being good, there has to be power to them to get anywhere else.
If the fuse box is dead, you might have a bad ignition switch or
fusible link somewhere. With the wiring diagram, you start at
the battery and work your way forward to determine where the
power stops. Does the starter work? Headlights?
