Question about 2000 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Lights out on steering wheel instruments of 200 Taurus

The lights are not working on my control buttons for my 2000 Ford Taurus station wagon. the buttons control the cruise control, which DOES work. Also, the instrument lighting on the far left of the instument cluster (only the fuel gauge portion) is unlit. Again, the gauge itself and "low fuel light" both work properly though. I think it might just be a fuse, but I can't determine which one to check. Any ideas would be great!
Thanks,
Steve

It sounds like you have some bulbs burned out in the cluster and cruise switches. I don't think you can just replace the bulbs in the switch. You can replace bulbs in the instrument cluster.

I have a 1994 ford taurus station wagon, the battery won't stay charged, the confusing thing is that the inside panel and door light works


you have a faulty alternator by the sounds of it, try this simple test, : test the voltage of the battery with the vehicle off with a simple multimeter, it should read just over 12v then test it with the car running, it should read around 14-14.5 volts if it still only reads 12v then your alternator needs replacing.

i've been told it's speed sensors. I have the same on my 1999, but my light flashes when i try to engage. And 1 out of 10 times, it engages and I can cruise. Just not worth it to me to fix. Ford never claimed there was a problem.

2006 ford taurus cruise control not working


I would get the owners manual out and find out where the fuse is for the cruise control cause there is a pickup switch for the cruise under the hood by the throttle body when it is engaged you don't have to have your foot on the pedal

I have a 2001 Focus station wagon. the cruise control will not engage. And the high beams will not stay on (I can flick them, but they won't stay). Are these loose switches of some sort, that I could...


I would check the easy things first. That is the brake switch and the clutch switch (manual trans). Drive down the road and pull the brake pedal up with your foot and then try to set the cruise (same with the clutch pedal). Also the cruise requires that the brake light bulbs be in working order (and that there are no LED brake lights). Check fuse numbers 53 54 and 59.
The high beam problem might be related to the cruise issue, but I can't think of a reason why.
