First thing I would check when you are experiencing any of these symptoms is the battery voltage. Check it at the battery terminals and at other places, for example the cigarette lighter socket. If the voltage is below 13v with the engine running, you may have a bad connection between the battery and the fuse box or between the battery and the body. A ...

It turns out that this was an Instrument Cluster problem. After swapping the instrument cluster with a different one the ABS light stays off. Therefore if the ABS lights (or other lights) come on without generating any error codes you might try to see if the problem is the Instrument Cluster itself.

New contributor, welcome. And yes, this stuff can be frustrating. How many miles on the car's odometer? Was this a salvage title, Florida or Gulf Coast flood car? Did you personally check the cars Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) repair/title history? In repairing cars (or solving any problem) you can solve things in a combination of three factors. ...

Every contemporary vehicle which I have had to elevate had the body style shown in your images. The jack mechanism also matched the pinch weld for each vehicle. Additionally, for an electric vehicle which had to have the battery pack dropped, the lift points matched the design you've noted and the DIY method was indeed a hockey puck with an appropriately ...

Car batteries have very high amperage, so i would highly suggest you disconnect your battery before doing maintenance or installation on your vehicule. Regarding the energy, you need to check the voltage of the truck battery and the voltage of your solar powering system, you might need to buy a dc to dc converter to have the right voltage powering the ...

If what you describe is correct, if the belt snaps, the fuel pump will stop and so the cylinders will not be injected with fuel. The simple answer is the engine will stop. As long as the broken belt can’t get to the timing chain and cause it damage or to come off, then there should be no mechanical damage to the engine. If a new belt is fitted correctly the ...

The timing is the controlled by the chain so the valve timing will only be affected by excessive wear or breakage of that chain. The belt driving the fuel pump controls the fuel pump and won’t affect timing but will affect fuel delivery.

Typically there are three electric actuators for the Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning (HVAC) system on that vehicle. An actuator looks like this: These actuators drive a small plastic door that manages air flow inside your vehicle. There is typically one actuator for the recirculation door (max A/C?), one (or two) for temperature blend (hot / cold) ...

Speed sensors are prone to be intermittent in failures. If they can easily be removed and cleaned without breaking them cleaning then might help. I believe this car has a pedal pressure sensor that is found by the brake light switch. I'm confused by the anti locks working during an illuminated ABS light. That shouldn't happen. I'm assuming your scanner can ...

Vacuuming the system isn't a "do if you want to" ... it is a must do if you want the system to work. There are two reasons to vacuum the system before entering refrigerant. First, it gets all atmosphere out of the system. Atmosphere will not work as a refrigerant and will keep the system from working correctly. Secondly, you vacuum the system to ...

I have the same problem with my fiesta, try to clean out your egr and get a cheap used replacmemt and only change the electrical side that should get rid of the error. When it comes to the noise I found if you move the breather box the pipe that goes behind the engine if its loose it will make the engine sound a lot deeper so be sure to check that. When it ...

A relay will do what you want. Get one with 5 terminals as that has contacts changing to “open to closed” and “closed to open” on power, and that is the functionality you want.

Can they be installed on your vehicle? Absolutely. I think without too much of an impact. The 265 tires themselves will be about an inch wider (3cm = ~1.19"). That's not a huge amount. Considering it will be split between the two sides of the tire, it means they'll only be about a 1/2" wider on each side. This shouldn't cause any issues with ...
