Question about 2004 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

Possible Electrical Short Or Module Malfunction

When my wife starts her 2004 Merc Sable, all of the warning lights in the dash stay on. I've driven the car for a few days as we swapped so she would be safe in my Volvo. The car runs fine and I've checked all of the connections, hoses and everything that is visible and I can find no problems there. I'm thinking that maybe its a malfunction in the car's puter or there's a short somewhere? Electrical problems in cars are not my forte. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

I have this same exact problem in my 2004 Mercury Sable. It seems that it causes scrapping noise in my engine though aswell. I have had it for a few months and I fix it but turning the car off after a minute or two and just restarting it. That seems to fix it but it's progressivly gotten worse.

Malfunction indicator light is on


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Chevrolet silverado 2004 airbag sensors reset


The airbag in your vehicle is an important safety device, and the airbag module ensures the proper functioning of your vehicle's air bag. If this module is not functioning properly, your airbag may not deploy during a crash. When there is a malfunction, your airbag module warning light will illuminate on your vehicle's dash. You will need to have the airbag assembly checked out by a qualified mechanic, but once that is done, you can reset the warning light and airbag module unit. If you've never done this type of job before, it should only take you 5 minutes.
    • 1 Open the hood and loosen the retaining nut on the negative cable wire cable clamp using a socket wrench.
    • 2 Slide the cable clamp off the negative battery terminal.
    • 3 Wait 3 to 5 seconds and reconnect the battery terminal. Tighten the retaining nut using a socket wrench. Once the power is restored, the airbag module should be reset.
    • 4 Verify that the module has been reset by turning the ignition key to the "II" position and checking to make sure that the airbag light does not illuminate.
