SOURCE: I can't find the keyless entry code for my 2004 ford freestar

The code is on the fuse box under the dash near the hood release. On my van there are two bar codes on a sticker attached to the fuse box. Under the first bar code, on the right side is the 5 digit code (bring your glasses the numbers are really small). After you get this code, just search the internet and there are plenty of forums on programing the keyless remote and also adding your own unique number to the key pad entry.

Good Luck

My traction control, brake, and check engine light are all on. I also had a plug wire burned in half. I checked all the fuses and all were good plus changed wires. The light are still on and the dinger is...

The plug wire & the ABS should not be related in any way. Unless when the plug wire burned in half the spark that could no longer get to the plug jumped to the ABS module & fried it. Anyway I would replace all plug wires. Then remove the Negative or ground battery cable for 5 min. to reset ABS module. Then reconnect the battery cable & give it a try. if the trac. or brake lights come back on you most likely have a bad ABS module & that's a very costly fix. Good Luck.

2.7 toyota starts easy but cuts out when cold

That could be nothing but on back of your fuel injectors is little nut that you slightly loosen to adjust the just a little bit that will either increase you idle or lower it (mechanics trick to quickly fix but charge you a fortune.) This is the only way to rev it up to start on cold days without having to replace coil packs ( coil is fixed and use to on older cars just turn distributor to increase speed.) A Tune Up (least expensive fix) is another way to fix it by allowing better spark of new plugs &/or plug wires.

05 lincoln ls going into failsafe mode and rough idle how do i fix

Replace the spark plugs every 3 years

HAVE TO USE OEM-- NGK -- Plugs (Rock Auto.Com
or NGK web site)

I said OEM Tip Config,NOT ford parts,they
were NGK off the assy line. The ford ones are the
WRONG tip,those folks don't care!

Replace ALL the COP Ignition Coils

The coils are your ONLY Problem

I know because I have a 2004 L/S & ten years diagnostic
experience with them, with professional tools

You only have 2 Fail Safes
one for overheating & one that says ETC

Don't even try to figure out the obd codes or the etc thing
Take too long to explain

The dealers can't fix that car,the coils when they get really
bad spike the drivers in the pcm & you loose tps signal & go into
etc failsafe & can only go 6 mph

There is no factory manual that tells you that & your etc on a
wiring diagram is the app or gas pedal,but on the obd codes it
is the throttle body P2100 codes that point to the motor or
tacm,& that is not the problem

So the answer is-- no one likes or understands that car, nor can they
fix one,so replace all the coils yourself,they only last 6 to 7 years

Only need on 7mm socket & get the coils from RockAuto,Com
I use Wells Coils

The front Oxygen Sensors have to be replaced at 100,000 miles

Better be changing that Tran Fluid on ALL your vehicle every 2 or 3
year or they WILL FAIL I guarantee it & power steering fluid also

Were is amp located at

get the FSM. its there.
audio amp. (depends on what options, for audio ) so...
and if still stock car, is it?
most are not 1996, folks up grade to DVD MP3 then USB then Ipads.
im online, at (so can you)
the amp schematic shows the antenna plugs in to amp not radio head'
oddly, so see antenna. see wire coax lead in right kick panel
follow that wire, cable and it plugs in to said amp.
easy huh.?
the antenna plugs directly to the radio head
the option audio sys, it plug in to the amp."priemum rad)
but the speaker all wire to the amp, for sure..... so follow them.
the FSM covers location far better than most online sources

99 mpv missfires,splutters.wont idle & has no power. when MAF is disconnected runs a lot better. I replaced the Maf but still does the same.The problem started suddenly,drove to work ok but when i

replace fuel filter, clean fuel injectors.could have bad fuel, do a code scan before buying new parts.faulty egr valve or faulty engine coolant temperature sensor cause engine run poorly.replace spark plugs and wires because if spark plug wires is bad or spark plug and ignition coil is bad that will cause rough idling misfiring and stalling you have dead cylinder not firing properly..

I got a tune up today on my Yukon which they only replaced 4 wires & all the plugs. the dealership says cyclinders 1&3 where misfiring. my truck runs better but stil vibrates. what could it be?

I would replace the other 4 wires and see if it's better. If so ask why they only replaced 4. Makes no sense. They should have been able to hook up a scope and see the ignition pattern, if all was well, they should have checked compression, and injector performance.

Replace spark plugs in 1997 4 cyl. ford ranger

Hello, I will suggest you get these few tools before you with the replacement.
(1) Spark plug socket with rubber insert to hold plugs in place while inserting & removing.(2) 6inch extensions for your 3/8ths inch socket wrench,(1) Swivle Socket extension for your 3/8ths inch socket wrench.(1) 1/2inch socket for exhaust manifold screws. A little quantity of anti-sieze for the spark pluggs to be applied to the pluggs if they are proving difficult to get out.
Start with the 1st cylinder at the front of the engine on the passanger side.
Twist & remove the spark plug boot from the existing plug.
You have to use a very small flat edged screwdriver to open the clips that hold the plug wires together.
Use a 6" extension & a 3" extension & your deep socket for the spark plug.
Remove the first plug and replace the old plug with a new Bosch Platinum Plus 2 prong plug and use some anti-seize on the threads and tighten to the appropriate torque.
Remove the old plug wire from the coil pack. It will be going to the 2nd coil pack (located to the rear of the first coil pack) and install the new plug wire in the coil pack.
Repeat steps 1-7 for plugs on 2 & 3.
To remove Plug #4 which is the last plug on the passanger side,you have to remove the two (2) 1/2inch bolts that holds a bracket to the exhaust manifold. Make sure you spray the studs these bolts are on with some DW-40 or liquid wrench. The exhaust manifold studs might have a lot of rust & being difficult to turn nuts off without shearing off the stud. It has some sort of aluminum box ontop of this bracket with some sensor wires coming out of it, Slip the bracket off and simply lay it to the rear of the engine to provide better access to this last cylinder.

Repeat steps 1-7 for plug #4 and then Remount bracket containing the aluminum box with sensor wires.

Upon completion of the passenger side,you now have to proceed to the driver side.
STEP 1. The first cylinder at the front of the engine the spark plug wire has a grey handle sticking up next to the A/C compressor. Using some pliers (needle nose plier) twist & pull this grey handle. The spark plug boot should pop out.

With the help of the small flat edged screw driver, unhook the spark plug wire clips that hold the wires together. There are 3 - One just after the 1st coil pack located at the front of the engine, another just on the other side of the valve cover and a small 2 clip located about 1/2 way back on the valve cover under the intake manifold.
Remove the spark plug wire from Cylinder #1 on the Drivers side
STEP 4.With the help of the small flat edged screw driver,press the 4 connection points on the grey handle that is attached to the wire,it will separate down the middle and allow you to remove the wire, Replace the wire with the new wire,you have to ensure you line up the rubber round plugs with the round holes in this grey handle & snap it back together with the new wire in place.

Hold the spark plug socket in your left hand down near the plug,feed a 6" inch extension below the A/C Compressor line (black pipe) and the A/C Compressor with your right hand and attach the spark plug socket into the extension.
STEP 6.Slip the socket onto the plug,afterwards,attach an additional 3 or 6 inch extension to the existing extension & attach your socket wrench.
STEP 7.Remove the plug & proceed to replace it with a Bosch Platinum plug & anti-seize on the threads. Feed the new Spark Plug wire over to the 1st coil pack & replace it on the coil pack.
