SOURCE: 1999 VW Beetle outside temp display not working

For general awareness, the outside air temperature sensor is located above the inside mirror.
Try to reset the temperature measurement unit: 1. Switch engine on. 2. Press and hold clock minute (min) and hour (h) buttons simultaneoutly longer than 3 seconds. The display will show new temperature measurement unit.

SOURCE: Digital dash lights on 2001 Mercedes CLK 430 CONVERTIBLE

these displays ared l.c.d. displays and what happens is over time the vacuum pack on the crystal element ruptures and get air in the tube and that part of the display is ruined permanently.I'm not sure if your saying that there are pieces missing or if the whole display is blank. If there are peices missing the only way to fix it is to repkace the instrument cluster. If they are blank it is very likley it is either the backlighting bulb or the dimmer switch. If you take a blanket and cover your display and can see the display very dimmly try replacing your back lighting bulbs- hopefully it is just your backlighting because the clusters are about 1,000 dollars and have to be special ordered with your mileage engraved in the new unit.

1999 mercury cougar how to fix temp gauge


Remove the wire to the engine temp sensor and ground it...if dash gauge pegs replace the engine temp sensor. You can't fix the sensor, it's replace only.
If the gauge in the instrument panel is tango uniform you'll have t? replace the instrument cluster or the gauge if it's separable. Check with your lincoln/mercury dealer or Ford (they picked up mercury) dealer to find ?ut.

1999 Mercury Cougar Starts and then Shuts down. In the beginning the car had a rattle in the TimingChain cover and was checked and it was fine, just that the Oil pressure was low and then the lifters...


Most engines have a low pressure shut-off OR the lifters no longer work with lack of oil.
Have someone check the REAL oil pressure with a gauge.They can thread a gauge into the Oil pressure sensor hole.
Since the oil pressure sender COULD be bad,you need this true reading.
It should run just long enough to give a reading,I hope.
I don't know if the OBD II codes would show the oil pressure.UIt doesn't on my Focus.I hope you get `er going,but the engine must have at least 25 psi oil pressure.Have you replaced the oil filter? don-ohio

The clock for my 1999 mercury cougar does not turned off when i take out the key what can i do to fix it?


clock is always powered, with key on or off. If it went off when you turned key off, you'd have to re- set your clock every time you turned key on. your clock, brake lights, and headlights are all powered separate from the ignition switch.

Temp gauge does not work all the time


THIS PROBLEM IS CAUSED BY A STUCK OPEN ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM THERMOSTAT.

Temp. gauge not working after having a heater core replaced.


if the engine cooling system was not filled and air bleed out the system may have an air pocket and this keeps the gauge from reading correctly.

Why is the ''snowflake light'' showing up red in my car?


I have a '99 Mercury Cougar & I've been read somewhere that the snowflakes have to do with the outside temp. & traction. I think it's warning you that it may be slippery or icy. I've noticed that when it's +3 to about -2 or -3, the yellow snowflake shows up. Any anything colder than -3 shows the red snowflake. The other lights: the wrench comes up in yellow. That one has always turned on after a certain amount of km's & it's advising you that your car needs a check-up (that's when I know I should look into getting an oil change). You can turn this light off by holding down the two buttons above & below the 'clock' button. Hold them down together for at least 5 seconds & that wrench light should go off. Otherwise, there is a light for checking your breaks (upside down exclamation mark), low windshield fluid. I can't think of any other ones but I hope this helps.
