SOURCE: 96 ford contour, temp gauge not working

first and foremost check the fuse box. there is a fuse for guages. The temp sensor is somewhere on the manifold and it will have a hard wire with probably a spring around it for protections that runs from the engine to the instrument cluster. You can remove the temp sensor and use a heat gun or propain heat and see if you get any kind of response. I suspect if all your other gauges are working the fuse is good. Most temp sensors do not use power only for lighting of the gauge, It just sends a resistance change to the water temp bulb and it moves the gauge. Is it a seperate gauge or in your insturment cluster? could be simple as a crushed line or the sensor went bad. It is normally self contained. I suspect it is a gauge and not a dummy light? if you can not get the one working in the instrument cluster I suggest going to and autoparts store and replace it which is very easy to do. You can remove the old sensor from the block and reinstall the new on in its place and run the cable back through where the first one was and mount the gauge in another area, It is very important to know the water temp since most computers use this info for setting the correct fuel to air mixture in a closed loop system. That is a diffrent sensor but you need to know the temp yourself to keep from blowing a head gasket or worse which can cause you lots of money to repair, I prefer to mount my own gauge seperate from the cluster, best of luck

no problem. If you are getting that low of voltage on a load then you might want to test the alternator as well to make sure it is running at capacity.

Someone will need to figure out if you are lacking fuel to the injectors, spark to the plugs, or if you have a mechanical problem with the engine such as a faulty timing belt.

In my 1996 Ford Contour, my hazards work but my turn signals do not. Can you help?


The hazard fuse and the turn fuse are different ones the turn flasher is different than the hasard flasher and the hasard button is the flasher. You may have to play with the switch a bunch to get it to work and it may only work a few times and quit even after doing this. Fuses good and you get it to work just once by a new switch and yor back in bussness
