Have 98 ford contour, 2.0 DOHC, 4 cylinder. Got a P0141 code. changed wires, plugs, cleaned MAF, replaced both o2 sensors. What's else can this be, engine light still on. I drove for awhile to see if light...


You have an oxygen sensor code. This code by the way is not for a signal problem rather it is the heater part of the O2 sensor. Check fuse #13 to see if it is blown. This is a 30 amp fuse. If fuse is ok then put a meter on the two white wires on O2 sensor and check for 12V when the ignition is on. Your code is being tripped due to a heater malfunction and unless you determine if power exists you cannot go any further. Hope this helps

1999 ford contour se custom sport check engine light stays on recently had new alternator replaced and when i turn heat on it only runs on hi otherwise car is running ok will the check engine light go off...


Contour's are notorious for check engine lights. Mine has been on for years. The only way really to reset the CEL is to rent or buy a code reader and record the codes that are stored. Information on CEL codes is available on the internet. FYI the most common code for contour's are P0420 and P0421. These won't cause any driveability issues. As for your heater problem, your fan blower relay is toast

1995 Ford contour SE V6. In the shop replacing engine,


The most common failed start is ignition spark, usually forgot to hook it up, this is controlled by the ignition module and the crank sensor, second most common is fuel. Has your mechanic fixed it yet? if not check the three basics- air-fuel-fire, one them is missing.
