MY FORD ESCORT 1.6 FINESSE 1997 IMOBILISER FAULT


disconnect the battery for 1 minute and try again - ---quick fix possible with that---
if that makes no difference then I would like to know exactly what model of alarm and immobiliser the car has - what is the maker + model no/serialno of the keyfob for the alarm, I can get the info I need off that.
also you can check the fuse in the alarm if you know where the alarm is situated, it will have a fuse either on an inline fulseholder on as a spade fuse stuck into its casing somewhere - replace the fuse if blown and try again to start the car ------------ tell me the model no of your alarm and immobiliser if no joy after battery/fuses and I can read up on them and see if I can fix your problem...

I have a 1997 Ford F-150 2WD with a 4.6l V8. About a month ago my cruise control quit working and it doesnt show where the cruise control fuse is in the owners manual. I wanted to check the fuses first to...


Cab fuse panel, Fuse #5 ( 15A ) is the speed control fuse ( also backup lamps, AC clutch coil, climate control blend door ). page 137 of your owners manual.

Did you have the recall done for the Secondary Safety switch ( this is what tedpineywood posted about ) ?
recall 05S28. Description: Speed Control Deactivation Switch.

If you want to try running the cruise control self test, this might help ( unless it does not start, which is fuse related as tedpineywood posted)

Self-Test Diagnostics

WARNING:
This test is a key on engine off (KOEO) test only that is conducted in park only with emergency brake fully engaged.

1. Enter self-test diagnostics by depressing the speed control OFF switch while turning the ignition key ON, making sure the engine does not start and is not running. The speed control indicator on the instrument panel will flash once to indicate that speed control module entered the diagnostic mode. Five additional flashes at this point indicate a defective speed control servo. Release the OFF switch.

2. Press the remaining switches in this sequence: ON, RESUME, COAST and SET/ACCEL.

If the ON switch is not depressed within five seconds after entering the diagnostics mode, the module times out and the procedure must be started over.

The speed control indicator lamp will flash as each switch is depressed. Press each switch in the sequence immediately after the indicator light goes out for the previous switch.

Note:
There will be a slight delay when the last button is pressed and the lamp flashes.

3. A lamp flash with the last button (SET/ACCEL) indicates that the static test passed. If the lamp does not flash with the last button and there are no additional flashes of the lamp, the switch is defective.

If the lamp does not flash with the last button, and additional flashes occur, follow the chart below for trouble codes:

— 2 flashes - BPP defective, circuit is defective, brake applied, CPP switch or jumper (if equipped).

— 3 flashes - deactivator switch is open or circuit defective.

— 4 flashes - vehicle speed signal is out of range or circuit is defective

4. Immediately (.25 second delay) after the static test, the speed control servo does a dynamic test by automatically actuating the throttle lever from 8 mm (0.315 in) to 12 mm (0.472 in) of travel from the idle position. During the dynamic throttle pull, observe throttle movement to witness any binding or sticking of the speed control cable and correct connection of speed control cable to throttle lever. Make sure the throttle returns to the idle position.

5. Return the ignition switch to the OFF position and proceed to the Symptom Chart.

No air conditioning, flashing climate light


You should make sure you have proper charge for sure.has your battery gone dead lately? I know on some of them digital climate controls will act exactly like this and have to be reset or go through a setup sequence.

VW Passat failing to start/security alarm issues are they linked?


Usually on the passat, if the immobiliser is on, there is a yellow key symbol flashing on the clocks as you try and start it. Do the doors unlock with the remote key? If no flashing light and the key fob working, i would be looking at possibly starter relay. This is either located under the fuse box or under a plastic cover near the windscreen under the bonnet.

Flashing maintenance required light


NEEDS AN OIL CHANGE. YOU CAN RESET IT YOUR SELF. HOLD IN THE "TRIP" BUTTON AND TURN THE KEY ON (DO NOT START IT) 5 DASHES APPEAR AND DISAPPEAR 1 AT A TIME THEN 5 "0"'S AND YOUR DONE. SOMETIMES THEY HAVE TO BE ON "TRIP A" BEFORE YOU START
