Question about Ford Thunderbird

1 Answer

1995 ford t bird lx v8, a relay? "switch clicking" on and off sound from behind digital clock which also blinks. it happens when doors are opened by remote, when car ignition is started, stops after speeding up, comes back on when slowing down, and when remote door locks used, the sound and blinking lasts about 3-4 minutes. i dont know if this is relavent but this all started immediately after i loaded 4 big bags of topsoil into the trunk. also, it isnt the airbag sensor as it was dismantled years ago after that crazy 10 cycle buzzing every 30 minutes. thanks for your help. car runs fine.

You have a ground wire loose somewhere in the car. This would explain both the clicking (the noise you hear is caused by electricity as it jumps from the loose wire to a nearby metal surface) and the blinking (bad grounding contact). You will need to trace the wires from the devices that are malfunctioning like the blinking clock till you find a broken wire. Easier said than done, I know, but that's what it sounds like from your description. Let me know if you have any further questions or need anything else related to this problem and I would be glad to help.

1995 t-bird v8. Starter will not crank, clicking noise coming from possible relay behind right headlamp. Battery is good and lights are bright no dimming when key is turned

The Ford V-8 they use in both Crown Vic and T-Bird are good for losing the solenoid to the starter. Replace that first before looking for a new starter.

Looking for the location of the cam shaft sensor on a 1997 ford thunderbird 4.6 V8. Does anyone know ehere it is?

Hey, I do! I had a problem with the cam position sensor on my 97 T-bird two years ago. The symptoms were weird, like a bad transmission acting up, but it wasn't the trans. Anyway, the CPS is located behind the power steering fluid reservoir on the right side (when standing in front of the car with the hood open.) The CPS sticks into the top of the head. It was relatively easy to replace: one bolt holds it in place. Take that out, reattach the electrode, and you're back in business. Good luck!

The Heater Core is going out in my 1997 Ford T-Bird Lx 4.6L v8, is it a hard job to replace?

the dash has to be removed it is a big job,check the haynes manual for the procedure or the ford service manual.the cluster radio and hvac controls come out and the light switch and the steering column has to be dropped ect.some fords like the mustang can be done by wedging something into the right side of the dash and you can get in behind it and do it in 3 hours instead of 10 hours.

1995 Ford Thunderbird Temp Gauge goes up when idling

Try to bleed the system. Also keep an eye on the coolant level. If it drops and you see no leaks the you could have a blown head gasket. Also replace the thermostat and hoses.
