99 ford expedition put car in gear and the radio and wipers cut out

Hello, I'll take a shot at solving this one. It would either be a chaffed wire in the steering column or a bad Interlock switch under the dash by the pedal levers. Check wire connectors for corrosion on either end of the steering column. Check the Interlock first.

To remove the plastic cover on the Column you will need to pull the Ignition lock. You will need to disconnect the NEG battery cable and have the Key turned to either ACC. or RUN position to remove the cylinder after pressing the spring lock under the Ignition switch. There is a hole under the keyswitch to put a punch and press upwards to release the lock cylinder. This is necessary to remove because of the flare on the cylinder core preventing the plastic cover from clearing the lock.

You will need to tilt the steering wheel to remove the plastic cover. Then reconnect the Battery and test the circuits. Would like to know what you finally find as the problem to add to my bag of tricks.

I hope my solution is very helpful in fixing your Expedition.

The best method if possable is heat shrink tubing but Im going to tell you this when it comes to battery cables sometime replacement is better than a fire or getting stranded trust me cutting corners just means youll be back a fixing it right very soon .....more than likely when it 5 below and snowing with 80 mile an hour winds lol. good luck :)

Install left window motor

I just did this on my Tuscani yesterday, :-)
Once you have the working motor in your hand,
Work with the car stoped and with the windows up.
Get the inside door-panel off ( ), cut a slice (that you will put some duc-tape on it after) the inside plastic to get to the 2 covers in hard plastic and remove them, just have to pull on them with your hand.
Remove the 3 bolt that hold the motor (put you hands by the 2 hole where was the plastic covers and feel the motor. Once the 3 bolt off, nothing will pop/spring-out/or unmount by itself. With your left hand, take the motor and manage to get it down to where the lower plastic cover was and you can twist it for you to see the other side of the motor because you have two philips screw to get off. Before separating the 2 parts after getting off the 2 screw, check realy good how it goes with the old and the new motor. get them apart and put the new one like the old one was, put the 2 screw back, untwist and put back in place, bolt on back the 3 nuts, replace the plastic cover, replug the electric cable. Put duct-tape on the slice you made or if you have a all new plastic pit it on, re install the inside panel of the door with the cables connected and test your new windows.

Can't open Bonnet bonnet cable failure

The leaver may have broken, or the cable is simply too stretched and loose to open the hood. Another reason is hood might be putting a lot of pressure on the lever, therefore making in near impossible to open bonnet (hood), so you may need someone to push or pull up on it as you pull the lever.

See if you can get at the cable itself, directly behind the lever. If so, cut some of the plastic cover away until you see the bare cable, give the cable a tug with pliers.

I once had to remove the grill to get access to the cable there, I cut into the plastic cover, slid it back and grabbed the bare cable with needle nose pliers and gave that a tug.

See if you can get at the cable, if the lever isn't working remove it (usually two bolts or so) and try pulling on the cable there.

Hope this helps :-)

2003 audi replacing the battery

I found this ....
Though not the best design - it is doable with simple tools. Note: my car is: Audi 2003 / 2004 Quattro A4 3.01. Remove weather stripping (3/4" thick strip across top of sheet metal between engine and fire wall (just give it a tug to get it going)
2. Remove plastic shield covering battery (remove the small one above the battery to give youself some leverage point). To remove the large plastic piece just pull up on the front edge of it first (along the entire edge) - there will be a metal clip or two unless they fell off. Then pull it out of the recessed edge (other side) - it comes out as one piece. Note where the metal clips were! :)

3. Lay cloth on side of car. :)

4. If you have time run to Sears (or local tool shop) and buy metric allen heads for your nut-driver or socket set nut-driver. This will save you a headache....

5. Remove the positive and negative leads (I like to wrap the + cable in cloth so it doesn't touch anything....

6. My radio etc. were all fine. Alarm was fine so no need to do the battery trick...
7. If you don't have a nut-driver/allen set (like me since it was Sunday night) just use a #6 allen wrench with a ball tip (not necessary but helps)
8. The screw that holds the battery wedge in place is in a terrible spot - the front center of the battery. If they had only made a cut-out in the sheet metal this would be simple. But....they didnt' So use your allen wrench along with some pliers to un-do the cap-head screw. Don't worry, it is locked into the plastic piece so it won't fall into the bottom of the engine compartment.
9. Slide the battery screw over out of the way
10. Remove the breather tube on the + side of the battery
11. Tilt the battery backwards, slide it out - Again, Audi, just another 1/4" here would have been nice!!! you may have to cut the zip-tie on the + cable cover to get the battery out. I did.
12. put new battery in
13. Replace all the gear in reverse order.
