SOURCE: where is the amp on a mach 460 system in a 2002

there are three amps. One is in the front in the dash board. The other two can be accessed through the trunk in the very back. You have to remove the two side panels first and then there are screws or some kind of bolts on the top of the back panel holding the back panel in place. Remove that you'll see in the center your motor to your convertible top and on the side your two amps.

if you have any questions just email me...

good luck,

SOURCE: Cant find OBD II port

looked your truck up on an online database, ford calls that port a dlc (data link connector) and says that it is located in the passenger's compartment of the vehicle attached to the instrument panel and is accessible from the driver's seat.

I just purchased a 1998 Dodge Caravan and I am wondering why the light flash on the dash board

If it is a check light or OBD Diagnostic light,
you will have to borrow a code reader or go
to a repair shop to find out what area of the
vehicle has a malfunction

You can go to the parts store as everyone tells
you,then you'll be back here wanting to know what the
code means

There are alot of sites you can & should study about
OBD vehicle systems and print all 800 generic codestill

No vehicle diagnoses it's self & codes do not tell
you what to replace
Your still going to need a repair shop in the end

What kind of code reader should I buy for a 1995 Pontiac Trans Sport car?

May depend on manufacturer date.All domestic vehicles after 96 are OBD II.Some late production 95 models are OBD II. if your diagnostic connector is rounded oval shape its OBD II. If the diagnostic connector is rectangled it's OBD.

Does the code reader power up? If not, check the fuses. OBD II ports supply power to the code reader. Typically GM uses the cigarette lighter fuse to power the OBD II port on their vehicles (could share a fuse with somthing else, but I doubt it). Good luck!

05 mustang gt was running ruff my obd

The problem may be due to poor grounds between the negative battery post and the alternator. The floating ground will cause the field voltage to be too low at times which will then not charge the battery and at times will also cause the voltage output to high (18 to 20 volts) which will damage the battery check the voltage between the negative battery post and the alternator. if this is not close to zero you will be in the same position shortly. by adding a ground strap between the battery post and the alternator bracket Poor grounds can lead to early failure of other things such as wheel bearings which are damaged by small arcing from the voltage differences between the drive train and the body while you are at it check all the grounds for poor connections remove clean and refit
