2003 Taurus died on Freeway. Will not turn over now.

Asked by Apr 13, 2017 at 05:02 PM about the 2003 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was driving my Taurus in traffic down i94. All of a
sudden the engine died. The radio, lights, etc still
working. I tried to throw it in neural while it was stil
moving to attempt to start it but would not turn
over. Same thing in park. Now I towed it to a local
shop. They just charged the battery to make sure
that wasn't the problem. At that time we noticed a
couple of the dash lights like the battery and check
engine were barely illuminated without the keys in
the ignition. They had no idea what it could be. I
towed it home. So the couple ideas I have on what
might be preventing it to start are; neutral shift
safety sensor, mega fuse, PCM, and maybe a
grounding issue. Just installed a new alternator a
few weeks ago. Starter is less than a year old.  
Battery is brand new as well.  Any input on this
would be definitely appreciated.
