Dash lights are out 1986 t bird its the digital type


Yes, pretty easy to remove. You'll get behind it by taking off the "collar" plastic, pops right out. After that, there is a panel that holds bulbs. The panel folds forward to get it out. I cannot remember the bulb numbers, but you'll wind up buying like 12 of them or so. It takes less than an hour for me now, but the first time I did it took me like all day.

Notes:

* Be careful with the gear selector pointer.
* Since your car is twenty years old (I have a 1987), I'd suggest replacing all of them.
* Use bulb grease, will reduce the opportunity for corrosion.

1986 Thunderbird Starting problem, Turn key starts, let go of key stops


Replace the ignition tumbler--i.e. get a new ignition set with new key. This will require removing the plastic trim around the steering column and removing the old ignition set. It's a good DIY project, but you should get a Haynes manual for 83-88 T-Bird/Cougar. Try going to a junk yard for the replacement part. Crown Vics, Cougars, Grand Marquis', Lincolns all have the same type of set for those years.
