My ford transit 58 plate radio is saying unavailable ??


Disconnect the battery for about 5 minutes then reconnect! This should reset the radio and solve the problem.

I put any aftermarket radio in not my truck will not stat


Some vehicles need the radio in ... it's part of the computer control system. You have to splice the new aftermarket radio into the wiring and leave your old stereo plugged in but tucked out of the way. Some people make long extension cords and move their original stereo to under the rear seat.

Radio not working


To remove the radio you need special keys that fit into the two slots on the side of the radio face. Look for them on ebay, approximately USD $15

Hi I have a 2009 ML 500 The battery went dead we recharged it. Now my stereo says device unavailable


On some vehicles, once you take off the battery, the radio fails to function. You need to program the radio. The dealer should have given you a radio code for your car to program your radio or take the car to your dealer to have this corrected that is if it was in working condition prior to removing the battery. This is a security measure that in the event the radio is stolen, it's unserviceable.

Which way does the waterpump turn on a 1985 Ford LTD 302?


The feature than can determine the way the pump turns would be whether they were driven by the smooth side of a serpentine belt on the one had, vs. the grooved side of a serpentine belt or a V belt on the other hand.

It would really be a good idea to get a numeric reading on the engine temperature...

Of course, the number one issue is the thermostat. If it is too high of a range, or is not opening properly, the 4-core radiator will never be called on.

Next is the possibility that steam/vapor is collecting around the t-stat. I had a big problem with that in an Aries K. Once it got hot enough to open the t-stat a few times the temperature settled down.

If the fan is not doing its job sufficiently you will get overheating at stop lights and in crawling traffic, but cooling that is fine above maybe 15 or 20 MPH.

If the bottom radiator hose has failed, it can collapse due to the suction of the water pump. For the whole length of that hose you should not be able to flatten the hose by hand. It should have a spiral of wire, a "spring," inside it that prevents that. If that wire has corroded, and isn't doing its job you can get compromised flow.

When the engine is cold, start it up. Before long, the heater hose that comes out neat the t-stat should start to warm up, while the upper radiator hose stays cold. The closed t-stat forces circulation through the heater system. This causes flow over the hot surfaces, and carries the heat from the area of the cylinders to the area of the t-stat. without that, the water's heat would take 10's of minuted to get to the t-stat.

Next, when the heater hoses get too hot to touch comfortably, but before the engine overheats, the upper radiator hose should start to warm up. The t-stat will start to open, and a little hot water will sneak out of the engine, heating the hose a little. That will introduce a little cold water from the radiator into the water pump, where it will get quickly mixed with the water circulating through the heater system, closing the t-stat pretty quickly. So the initial warming of the upper radiator hose will be pretty slow.

If it overheats before the upper hose gets too hot to touch, you have a t-stat problem. Either the t-stat is failing to do its job, or it is not getting the heat signal it needs to operate properly.

If the heater system is clogged or plumbed wrong, it will not allow the requisite circulation.

I hope this gets you on the road to fixing your overheating problem. A 302 with a mondo radiator as you describe should have no overheating troubles, even in the desert!

How to diagnose a bad water pump


Not that big a job, to pull the t-stat and test it in hot water in the house.
If you have a candy thermometer and a large pot, suspend the stat in the water via string, heat the water and observe if the stat opens up.
If yes, the at what temp, most are between 170-190 degrees?
If not then you have at least one suspect.
You can also button up the Ford and start it up, does it still over heat without the stat?
Even with the engine cold the pump should still circulate water.
Either way the fastest method is to turn a few wrenches to get a suspect stat out to test.
If you have a cooling issue when was the last time you changed fuild and/or did a superflush of the cooling system?

After main battery replacement, the radio will not power up at al


Hi fasterboatma, Your computer stats are gone, the computer was reset when battery was disconnected, your radio is in theft mode, the radio is waiting on a code to be entered. The reason it does this is so if the radio was stolen it cant be used without the code. Look in your owners manual and see if the code is recorded there, if not call a local dealer and they can look it up, they will usually do it for free, if not you will have to take the front bezel off and see if you can see the code printed on the top of the radio. Let me know if I can assist further and please rate this solution. lone99star
