All my gauges just quit working. car still runs fine. they done this 2 or 3 times but would always start again. this time have not come back on. turn signals and dash lights work just no gauges.


At the moment, your instrument cluster maybe faulty? Due the basic tests, try to be sure. Check for applicable trouble codes relating to instrument cluster--pcm--communication codes. Some of the national brand auto stores in this country may check codes for free, if there are any.
Check voltage and ground circuits for the instrument cluster. The sending units for gages are wired to pcm then the pcm sends serial data to instrument cluster telling instrument cluster what to do with gages. If you want to check gage sending units, that's ok.

If you have a scanner that can communicate with instrument cluster, you can get instrument cluster to do a self-test. The self-test, the instrument cluster will turn warning lamps on and off, sweep gages w/o outside data input. The instrument is considered good, if it passes that test, if not, the instrument cluster is considered faulty.

I am looking for the A/C fuse for a Ford mustang gt 2002


manual system

  • Blown fuse(s):
  • Battery junction box (BJB) F26 (65A).
  • Central junction box (CJB) F33 (20A), F36 (7.5A), F37 (10A), F39 (20A), F45 (15A), F47 (15A), F58 (10A) or F59 (7.5A).
  • Blower motor inoperative.
  • A/C compressor inoperative.
  • Disconnected electrical connectors.
  • Engine cooling fan inoperative.
  • Damaged control switch(es) or climate control panel.
  • Circuitry open or shorted.

Electronic Automatic Temperature Control Module Self-Test
  • NOTE: The vehicle interior and exterior temperatures should be between 10° - 32.2°C (50° - 90°F) when carrying out the self-test. If the temperature is not within the specified range, false in-vehicle temperature sensor DTCs will be displayed.
    The EATC module self-test will detect concerns in the system control functions and will display hard diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) in addition to continuous diagnostic trouble codes for concerns that occur during system operation.
  • The self-test can be initiated at any time. Normal operation of the system stops when the self-test is activated.
  • NOTE: The key must be in the RUN position to enter the self-test.
    To enter the self-test, press the OFF and floor position buttons simultaneously and then press the AUTOMATIC button within two seconds. The display will show a pulse tracer around the center of the display window. The test may run as long as 30 seconds. Record all DTCs displayed.
  • If any DTCs are retrieved during the self-test, proceed to Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (EATC) Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index.
  • If a condition exists but no DTCs are retrieved during the self-test, proceed to Symptom Chart.
  • To exit self-test and retain all continuous DTCs, push the blue (cooler) TEMP button. The module will exit self-test, retain all continuous DTCs and then turn off (display blank).
  • To exit the self-test and clear all DTCs, press the defrost button. The display will show 888 and all function symbols for one second. The module will then turn off (display blank) and all DTCs will be cleared.
  • Always exit the self-test before turning the EATC system off.
  • Continuous DTCs will be deleted after 80 ignition switch ON cycles after a continuous condition occurs.

The car is back firing and juderring, it seems like it is starved of fuel but hte tank is full, also the engine management light is staying on


imasuming you mean the check engine light is on. if so go to an auto parts store that reads your codes for free. like auto zone or advanced auto.etc you need to find out the details of that code or codes. this will help you narrow down your trouble shooting.
if you cant drive it there here is one small thing you can do disconect the pig tail from the mass air flow see if it runs any better. it will still be ruff. if the engine is running now plug it back up if the engine gets worse and dies thats your most likely problem the mass air flow. you might have to do it a couple of times . this was just one way to trouble shoot one posability . thats why you need the cone and a print out of trouble shooting for the codes

2002 ford f450 7.3 diesel runs ruff and has trouble code p1316 any ideas


P1316 Injector Circuit/IDM Codes Detected .....FJ9 DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODE (DTC) P1316 INDICATES THAT CODES ARE STORED IN THE IDM
Possible causes:
Injector(s) or circuit(s)
Open or shorted IDM enable circuit
Open/short in EF circuit
Open/short in FDCS circuit
IDM relay
IDM powering circuits
IDM
PCM
Check for other codes.
Key on, engine off.
Perform KOEO On-Demand Self Test.

This tells me that the IDM DOES store codes.
Trying to make sense of this. Which test will then give me the codes stored in the IDM? I am pretty sure we did the self test and did not get additional codes

Displays 104 when it is 65 control is whacky'is it sensor or thermostat, or what


Try this test for codes


Electronic Automatic Temperature Control Module Self-Test
  • The EATC module self-test will not detect concerns associated with data link messages like engine coolant temperature or vehicle speed signals. A diagnostic tool must be used to retrieve these concerns.
  • The EATC module self-test will detect concerns in the system control functions and will display hard diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) in addition to intermittent diagnostic trouble codes for concerns that occur during system operation. The vehicle interior temperature should be between 4°-32°C (40-90°F) when carrying out the self-test. If the temperatures are not within the specified ranges, false in-car temperature sensor DTCs will be displayed.
  • The self-test can be initiated at any time. Normal operation of the system stops when the self-test is activated.
  • To enter the self-test, press the OFF and FLOOR buttons simultaneously and then press the AUTOMATIC button within two seconds. The display will show a pulse tracer going around the center of the display window. The test may run as long as 30 seconds. Record all DTCs displayed.
  • If any DTCs appear during the self-test, follow the diagnostics procedure given under ACTION for each DTC given.
  • If a condition exists but no DTCs appear during the self-test, GO to Symptom Chart Condition: The EATC System Is Inoperative, Intermittent or Improper Operation.
  • To exit self-test and retain all intermittent DTCs, push the blue (cooler) button. The control will exit self-test, retain all intermittent diagnostic trouble codes and then turn OFF (display blank).
  • To exit the self-test and clear all DTCs, press the DEFROST button. The vacuum fluorescent display window will show 888 and all function symbols for one second. Then, the EATC control assembly will turn OFF (display blank) and all DTCs will be cleared.
  • Always exit the self-test before powering the system down (system turned OFF).
  • Intermittent DTCs will be deleted after 80 ignition switch ON cycles after the intermittent condition occurs.

Check lights on


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. The list of possible codes number in the hundreds. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what engine parameter is out of normal range. You or a technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint cause and the proper repair. Even if you reset the light, if the underlying problem is not addressed it will come back on.
