Ford Probe Troubleshooting

Buy a Probe repair manual and follow the ignition troubleshooting procedure. If you don't have a voltmeter, buy a digital volt-ohm meter (DVOM), doesn't have to be the expensive high-end kind (fluke), many are quite inexpensive. A voltmeter is necessary for any trouble shooting.

ABS, A/c clutch,speedometer,odometer quit at the same time

Its your ABS system. There is a faulty switch/sensor on the master cylinder. It leaks brake fluid into the wires connected to it and causes the circuit to short, resulting in a blown fuse that controls the AC, odometer, speedometer, cruise control and ABS light to stay on. This can even cause a fire in the vehicle. A fire can occur even when the vehicle is turned off. To correct the problem go to this link -

Just quit running while driving will still turn still over, getting fuel thought filter, i dont think im getting fire. 1990 2.2L ford probe

i had the same thing happen to me after it turned 200,000 miles.

All you have is a bad electric connecter to the fuel rail it's located over by the battery and that should help your problem.
i hope this helps and good luck.

My Ford Probe 96 will not start cause the guy i buying it off of took the water pump off and he knock the timing belt off and he tried to put it back on and now it will not fire up now it like turns over...

The Timing is WAY off. It is Really Hard to set the Timing on this Car. You will need to Locate a Mechanic and have him Reset the Timing. Once it is Reset, it should Fire right up Unless the Guy Messed up More stuff. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
