Do you know what a lighting control module is ?
Turn Signal and Hazard Lamps The turn signal system consists of:
  • turn signal miniature bulbs (13465)
  • lighting control module
  • multi-function switch (13K359)
  • indicator bulbs in the virtual image instrument cluster (10849)
  • circuit wiring and circuit protection
Turn signal system operates as follows:
  • The multi-function switch is protected by fuse junction panel Fuse 3 (10A). This fuse is hot in RUN.
  • Circuits 104 (LB/O) and 105 (R/W) connect lighting control module to the left and right turn signal switches of the multi-function switch.
  • Ground is provided to the lighting control module and the turn signal miniature bulbs through Circuit 57 (BK).
  • Turn signal functions are performed by double filament bulbs in lamp assemblies located next to the headlamps.
  • The turn/hazard function utilizes the second filament of the appropriate bulb(s).
  • With the multi-function switch in the right turn position, power is supplied to the RH front and rear turn signal miniature bulbs and the RH turn indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • With the multi-function switch in the left turn position, power is supplied to the LH front and rear turn signal miniature bulbs and the LH turn indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • Do you know what diagnostic trouble codes are ?
Section 17-01: Lighting, Exterior 1997 Continental Workshop Manual DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING Procedure revision date: 07/29/1996 Turn Signal Lamps/Hazard Warning Flasher Lamps
Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer's concern by operating the turn signal/hazard flasher lamps to duplicate the condition.
  1. Inspect to determine if one of the following mechanical or electrical concerns apply:

    VISUAL INSPECTION CHART Mechanical Electrical
    • Damaged multi-function switch.
    • Circuitry open/shorted.
    • Fuse junction panel fuses:
      • 1 (10A)
      • 3 (10A)
      • 7 (15A)
      • 13 (15A)
      • 19 (10A)
      • 20 (10A)
      • 25 (10A)
      • 31 (15A)
    • Power distribution box Fuse 16 (20A)
    • Bulb open.
  1. If inspection reveals an obvious concern that is readily serviced, correct the concern before continuing with Inspection and Verification.
  1. If a concern remains after the inspection, connect the Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) Tester 007-00500 or equivalent to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel to perform DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test. If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the lighting control module, GO to Pinpoint Test CA. If the DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test is passed for the lighting control module, retrieve continuous DTCs and execute Self Test Diagnostics for the lighting control module to retrieve current DTCs.
  1. If self test is passed and no DTCs are retrieved, go to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
  1. If DTCs are retrieved, go to the Lighting Control Module (LCM) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If the lighting control module cannot be accessed by the NGS, go to Pinpoint Test CA.
Rotunda Service Bay Diagnostic System (SBDS®) 001-00001 may also be used to diagnose this system.
your best bet mite be to take it to a qualified repair shop. Unless you have a scan tool that can check for DTC'S an know how to use a wiring diagram an DMM - digital multi-meter to test electrical circuits .

If you are4 asking how to reattach mirror to windshield go to auto parts store and buy a mirror attachment kit. Follow directions. It should not be a problem.

This could be as you said that it may be the thermostat, or it may be the sending unit. I would take it to a shop soon before you do major damage.

The best way, in my opinion, is to drop the tank and it's not too bad on your car. make sure you have the tank low on fuel as gas is pretty heavy. the other way and lazy way is basically to cut an access panel so you can get to the pump without dropping the tank but you have to cut sizeable panel and you have to make sure you recover the panel air tight to prevent fumes from seeping into the cabin. I will provide you a link where you can see how it is done. good luck. it is not a hard job to drop the tank.

P0460 - Fuel Level Sensor A Circuit Description: The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the fuel level input (FLI) circuit for electrical failure. The test fails when the signal moves outside the minimum or maximum allowable calibrated parameters for a specified fuel fill percentage in the fuel tank. Possible Causes:
  • Empty fuel tank
  • Fuel pump (FP) module concern
  • Incorrectly installed fuel gauge
  • Damaged instrument cluster
  • CASE GND circuit open
  • FLI shorted to VPWR
  • Overfilled fuel tank
  • Damaged fuel gauge
  • FLI circuit open
  • FLI circuit shorted to CASE GND or PWR GND
  • CSE GND shorted to VPWR
  • Damaged PCM
Diagnostic Aids: Monitor the FLI and FLI V PIDs in key ON, engine running. A concern is present if the FLI PID is at 25% fill and the FLI V PID is less than 0.90 volt with a non-matching fuel gauge or the FLI PID is at 75% fill and the FLI V PID is greater than 2.45 volts with a non-matching fuel gauge. Application Key On Engine Off Key On Engine Running Continuous Memory Ranger GO to Pinpoint Test HX . All others Refer to the Workshop Manual Section 413-01, Instrument Cluster for fuel level indicator diagnosis.
Your vehicle has coil on plug ignition system , these systems can burn out coil driver (transistor ) inside the PCM - engine computer . Not replacing sparks before they get too worn , can cause coils to short out inside sending 20,000 volt's into the computer . You probably need a new computer , if so it has to go to the dealer to be programmed . You got screwed . Your best bet , take it back an get your $500 back. That's why he sold it so cheap .

How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? Around here, some of the national brand auto stores will check p0 codes for free. I don't know about manufacturer specific codes?
The basics for a rough idle on a lot of vehicles is to check for a leak of some kind, fuel--egr--vacuum leak.
You could use a gage and check proper fuel pressure? Then turn the key off, see if pressure holds for a bit. If it drops like a rock, check for fuel pressure leak. Check to see if fuel system running rich or lean?
With some ford systems, everything off, unplug the maf sensor, where applicable. Start the vehicle, see if it does any better, if so have to check maf system.

if its been sat for years the fuel filter has probably deteriorated, and its now in the fuel lines. there is a number of parts that need changing before you start an engine that has not been run in a long time. fuel drained, fuel filter changed, oil and filter changed. fuel goes off after a year or 2. oil can turn to sludge in the sump. and block the oil pump. this can also affect the oil pressure sensor.

If you're finding it difficult to service/repair your car, get one
of those online manuals. You'll not have to wait for others to answer, or rely on mechanics and all.
Plus i know a website that has very good manuals online, without expiry i.e. for lifetime.
best of all I've tried
