SOURCE: fuse keeps blowing for tail lights

Has the vehicle ever been in an accident ? if so you need to check all wiring in that area you have a bare wire somewhere .. Take the tail lights out and check all wiring in this area.. Then you might crawl under the whole car and trace all wires forward to see if they have ever been maybe pulled in to. let me know Jerry thanks

SOURCE: check engine light on, traction

there is a lot of questions here so i will start with the codes P0028 & P0026 both are verable valve timing codes first we should talk about how this system works, the engine is equiped with veriable valve lift units that when oil is pushed into the units they push on the camshaft, basicaly they roll the shafts in there saddles witch changes the lift and duration of the camshaft this is done to maxamise the performance of the engine, basickly alowes the engine to be tuned down at low RPM and load but when there is a demand for power the cames are advanced to give the engine more power. when we see these codes the mose common problem is the engine has not been serviced reguarly and their is gunk built up in the oil passages to the veriable valve units, most of the time changing the oil and adding some addative like marvel mistery oil will fix the problem, if not then you may have to replace the veriable valve lift units.

the skip under load might be the verable valve units advanceing one cam and not the other, this would cause a surge and maybe an engine miss fire, but i would change the spark plugs as will as the oil ( it never hurts to replace the plugs ) but make sure to use what the factory used don't chepen it up spend the few extra dollers to get the right plugs.

the check engine light is the verable valve units.

now the flashing cruse and the TCL these are most likely related, and you should be able to get a code from the BCM that will leed you down the right path, but best guess is a speed sensor is not working, all 4 wheel have to be within 1% of each other or the cruse will not work, and the TC wont work and probly the ABS.

its a lot of info but i hope this helps.

My tail lights aren't working on my 2000 sebring

Hello Gay Woodley...

Car batteries are dangerous... (I'd rather douse myself in gasoline & play with matches than work on a battery)


Several things need to be done to lay the groundwork for GOOD TROUBLE SHOOTING:

Modern cars (yours) can act pretty squirrely (alarm trouble) if the battery (or ground) connections are dirty, oxidized and/or wet... Going further into "a sophisticated" investigation without at least a look is pointless... and disconnecting the battery (while messing with your radio (might regain a level of sanity for your VARIOUS CONTROL UNITS/MODULES (ENGINE, BODY))... but I seriously doubt your tail-lights are related
*** (
hard wiring fault... check grounds too)).

White lithium grease can reasonably "PROTECT" an electrical connection... but if it is heavily corroded or oxidized... it must be carefully cleaned (it can be quite caustic immediately at the battery and EXTREME CAUTION is warranted (eye protection, gloves & lots of fresh water (if things go terribly/explosively wrong (to save skin & eyes))).

***That (battery check) being done... you will need YOUR vehicle SCHEMATICS and a volt/ohm meter (see below) to find if your OPEN.

ALTHOUGH it is best to BUY your own... Your schematic (wiring) diagrams are available (free) from BBB Industries (also "some" at not quite as comprehensive... (registration required at both)).

BBB Industries includes some quite excellent Technical service bulletins (TSBs).

Hope this helps!

I have a 99 mercury sable, while replacing the headliner the dome lights and power windows quit working. I have checked all the fuses and the relays under the dash and all of them are good. I also checked...

odd,look for a fault in the ground side of that system,
if you check for voltage at say the dome light ground to battery
ground,there should be 0. even a test light from the battery ground to the dome light ground would work,if it even glows the ground is faulty. All I can think of ,,good luck.

Ford Fiesta Indicator Lights won't turn off

It is most likely a short in the wire to ground. What you can do is have the trouble codes run with a diagnostic tester or ground the test lead and read the trouble codes from the check engine light flashes. The trouble codes will tell you if there are and electronic or computer faults. If not, then its just a wiring issue.
