It sounds like your alternator is about to fail. Have it checked, I suspect that the charge voltage has dripped below 12 volts. A properly functioning alternator should put out about 13.8 volts when in charge mode.

SOURCE: how to replace my serpentine belt myself

Well first I suggest that you get a piece of paper an pencil. Draw on the paper the exact position of all your pulley's and then in a different color draw the belt while its on the pulleys mapping out the exact route around each one. Believe me, if you don't and you also don't have the service manual, you will be at it for a while unless you have a very good memory. after that, find the tensioner pully. there should be a 1/2 inch drive opening on the tensioner where you can put a wratchet or a breaker bar. Use a little muscle to move the tensioner away from the belt and when there is enough slack remove the belt with your other hand. Some tensioners have a nut you can tighten to keep it in the "no tension on belt" position. Installation is reverse of removal. I hope this helps. merry christmas

SOURCE: FORD WINDSTAR 97 WON'T START - SUSPECT FUEL PUMP;

have someone listen to your gas tank while turning the key from off to run. if theres no sound, goto the rear passenger side fender cover and remove (inside the van) theres a little red button down in the rear corner. check to make sure its pushed in (inersia switch for fuel cutoff). also check fuses. if you hear the pump check, the fuel filter.

Testimonial: "Thank you for the help. The inersia switch was removed by Pep Boys a few years ago. I don't know why? It turns out to be the fuel pump was bad. The way it was determined was by the tow truck driver with a rubber hammer banding on the gas tank. After he hit the tank it jared the fuel pump enough to let it run. We replaced the pump."

I have a 1988 ford thunderbird 5.0 auto trans the electronic instrument panel cluster has gone dim can hardly see panel all fuses are good has auto dim head lamps


Usually a problem with the mini-lights inside the cluster, the circuit board or the dash light dimmer switch.
You can take the cluster out and see if the bulbs can be replaced or check the dimmer.
Not connected to automatic dimmer headlights.

How do you trouble shoot flasher in 97 Ford Aspire


the flasher should be located on the fuse panel, however if your turnsignal works without light on there is nothing wrong with it. sounds to me like you have a - of one circuit shorting out on the the+ of the other, probably int the light socket of one of the right side marker lights. start buy tring right turn signal with just marker lights on first.

Alternator failed and blew the headlights 2 qty. dim, 1 qty. bright. Replaced the alternator and the headlights, but the dims don't stay on when the brights are engaged.


Hi:
Normal operation of the headlight circuit is to just have one set of headlights on a time, bright or dim, but not both.

You have a bad ground, look out by the battery for a bunch of black wires screwed to the body of the car, check that they have a clean and tight connection, scrap off any paint under the wires.

The only thing that all of your problems have in common is the light switch and the dash wiring harness. The stereo is linked to the light switch because of it's illumination feature' You need to test the light switch with a test light by probing the wires at it's plug.
