You have water in something You will have to dry it out especialy the wire joiner plugs.Could have also inadvertantly shown up a coil problem.The coils get cracked from the heat of both engine and itself operating.When you pour water around the base it gets into the coil and plays merry hell.

Location of coolant temp sensor 2000 crown vic


If the sensor was the problem you would have a check engine light on, the fan is operated by the powertrain control module which controls a relay module. You must have the dealer run a scan of the system ans do an active test on the fan operation to determine what is wrong.

Hello


The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

Check Engine Light Crown Vic 1994 - runs great


Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

I have a 2000 ford Crown vic and the cooling fan is not working but if I jump it with the battery it will work and it's over heating


The fan motor resistor is most likely bad. It guages the temperature of the coolant and controls voltage levels to the fan. It acts as a switch, similar to a coolant temp sensor does in the engine. Good luck!
