Unhook the negative battery cable for a couple of hours, then reconnect. If the code comes back, you may have a bad abs wheel sensor.

Good morning , on the dash , the warning lights are coming on , saying lh indicator faulty , rh brake light faulty lh sidelamp faulty , but we have checked all the bulbs and they are all fine ...any i


Do you have a tow bar fitted? Sounds like a wiring problem earth short usually a badly wired in tow bar can cause it as they wire them into the light cluster using scotch locks they need soldering properly. Failing that or no tow bar fitted have you got water ingress in the lights Definately sounds like the rears

Short on high brake wire


Open and inspect each socket.

There are 2 conductor and single conductor bulbs / socket.

A single conductor bulb in a 2 conductor socket will generate this error code.

The mileage sensor is out on my 99 expedition, were can i locate it to get it to work?


I have a 1999 Ford Expedition with a 5.4L Engine and don't know what you are talking about. I searched under mileage sensor for the 99 expedition but could only find On-Board Warning Systems.

Are you talking about the Vehicle Speed Sensor?

If so, this is located near or on the transmission and has wires that go into the harness, and basically is a pickup coil that detects movement of the transmission which then controls mileage on the odometer and the speedometer.


prev.gif next.gif On-Board Warning Systems Turn on the ignition switch in almost any vehicle and watch the instrument panel. The modern automobile has an abundance of warning lights that provide valuable information. The list could include:
  • Brake system warning
  • Windshield washer fluid level
  • Coolant level
  • Brake fluid level
  • Door ajar
  • Headlamp door position
  • EGR or Check Engine
  • High beam indicator
  • Seatbelt light
  • Cold engine warning
  • Turn signals
  • Charging system
  • Transmission temperature
  • ABS or Anti-lock Brake System
  • SRS or Supplemental Restraint System
  • Brake lining wear indicator light. The high price of fuel created a demand for yet another light--the fuel economy warning system. When the light comes on, it tells the driver he or she is pushing too hard on the gas pedal. High manifold vacuum equals good gas mileage and vice versa. The system simply reads manifold vacuum from a sensor, and when it drops to a predetermined level, a circuit is completed and the light is lit. This has become in many models what is known as the up-shift light. An arrow on the dash indicates the time to shift into the next gear to obtain optimum fuel economy. If a warning light comes on, you must find out why. It means there is a problem either in the system being monitored or in the warning lamp circuit. Finding the actual fault is important and not very difficult. However, a wiring diagram may be needed to prevent confusion. Looking at the typical warning light circuit, you'll see that the bulb is most often supplied with current through the ignition switch. Further examination reveals the most common way of completing the circuit and getting the bulb to light is by means of a sensor, which completes the ground connection. In this case, sensor is a fancy word for a switch that turns on or off according to specific conditions. Consider a typical oil pressure warning light system. Current from the ignition switch flows through the warning lamp and from there to ground through the oil pressure switch. This particular switch is normally closed and the circuit is complete until the switch opens in response to oil pressure in the engine. Just the opposite is true with the coolant temperature sensor. It is normally open and only completes the circuit when an internal element expands (in response to heat) to close the contacts. If the vehicle has a cold engine warning lamp, the sensor includes two sets of contacts. One set is normally closed and opens as the internal element expands. This action breaks the ground circuit to the warning lamp. The other set of contacts functions if the temperature rises far enough to close them, turning on the high temperature warning. If either of the temperature lights is lit while the engine seems normal, just unplugging the wires from the sensor will provide valuable diagnostic information. If the lights remain lit, there's a short to ground in the wiring from the lamp to the sensor. The service needed isn't to the cooling system, but to the warning system. If the lights go out with the wires unplugged and the engine seems normal, it's entirely possible that the sensor has failed and needs to be replaced. Nevertheless, don't just unplug the wires and forget about them. This could be disastrous for the vehicle owner should a cooling problem develop without warning.

    You will need a turn and brake signal box IF, you have different bulbs for brake and turn lamps. If the brake and turn bulbs are one(red)lens than no box will be required. Thanks, Dana

    I have a Ford Fiesta 2007 1.4 TDCI. When I brake


    Check the wiring harness. Sounds like it has come in contact with the break assembly and is shorting out. Look for exposed wiring where the cover has worn off coming in contact with the break. Tape all exposed wiring and be glad you haven't had a small fire.

    Tow plug


    you have one of two things going on first check to see if the brake light on the left side is shorted out, it will be a 1157 bulb replace it and see if it works looking good does not mean it's good if it has a single contact then it's a 1156 bulb, check to make sure where the bulb socket is that the rubber inside the socket is not worn out and the bulb is shorting to ground. if it is buy a 1157 pig tail repair kit at any Nappa auto truck store or any trailer store. replace it if it needs it. Next if that does not fix it pull the left wheel off pull the drum off and look at the wires on the inside, if they are bare inside it's shorting out if you don't see a bare wire look at the color of the two wires and with a ohm meter and one wire disconnected from that side touch them at the plug and to ground one at a time you should have one wire going to ground one not if both wires going to the left side show they are shorted then you need to replace the wire or the electric coil. if you need more help just ask. If I can e-mail you I can send you a diagram and show you how to test if yo don't know. good luck.
