1997 Ford Taurus Q&A
1997 Ford Taurus Question: does this car have a transponder key or regular key?
That car had an option of with or without theft deterant. Most with had a gray plastic handle on key and the ones without are black plastic and are smaller in size in comparison. If it is a no start issue and its a theft system it normaly would show a theft deterant light flashing in instrument cluster when key is on. - milesauto
