NEVER remove the battery cable when the engine is running. It can damage the alternator and a lot of other electronics on the vehicle. The alt will go to the full charge mode. Most all of the dash warning lighs shut off thru a circuit that goes to the alternator. Check your wiring for loose connectors or a grounding wire.

Try removing the negative (black) terminal from the battery for 10-15 seconds then reconnect. This should powercycle the electronics.

Use a code reader to reset the CPU program as it may have become corrupted from not having a battery in place.

Replaceing 04 ba headlights

Ford ba? Battry side you will have to unclamp the battry & move a bit or possibly remove (hope you have your radio code. Use a mirror behind the light so you can see the clip that holds the globe in. Carefull undoing the clip cause if you bend it you will need to remove the whole h'light which is recomended removeing bumper & you don't want that just for replaceing a globe. If uncertain cheaper just to have mechanic do it.

Where do I find the wires that I apprently need to cross to get the check engine light to flash in order to get the codes?

Remove the kick panel just beside the left foot rest on the driver's side.
2) Locate blue wires.
3) Locate black connector. Hold it notch up.
4) With ignition off, insert one of the wires into top row, 2nd pin from left.
5) Turn key to on position, but do not start the car.
6) Watch blinky check engine light on dashboard. Count blinks. Long blinks = 10, Short blinks = 1.
7) Keep watching blinky light until you get mesmorized.

To clear codes (after problem has been resolved):
1) With engine off, stick the blue wires to 1st and 2nd pin in the top row counting from left on the

black connector, with notch facing up.
2) Start car. Shut off car. Remove pins.
3) Read codes to make sure they are clear. No codes = steady blinks at 1/4 second intervals. yhis is for the 94, 92 should be the same. have a good day !!

My car starts off fine in running, then the lights will go dim and then the check engine light comes on. The gas peddle will not go the whole way to the floor and it will shut off. It must cool down for...

If the Check Engine light comes on there is a problem.
1. Find a new mechanic!
2. After this Check Engine Light comes on there should be a Code or several Codes.
a. If so Turn the Key from off to the ON (not start) position THREE (3) times. On the THIRD (3rd) time leave the the Key in the ON (not start) position.
b. If you have an Digital Odometer, the Code(s) will appear there. "P" followed by four (4) numbers. Let it give you all the codes until it reads "P donE". Record these numbers.
c. If your do not have a Digital Odometer, the Check Engine Light will start Blinking. Carefully count the number of Blinks. Most are in two (2) or three (3) digit numbers. Again let the Light go thru all the "blinks", The Final blinks should be 5 blinks and 5 blinks.
Regarding your dying problem:
Lights dimming after it starts, could indicate that your alternator is failing. One easy way to check this is:
A. Start the car.
B. With the Engine running: Remove the negative (black side) wire from the Battery.
C. If the Engine dies the alternator is bad. The Battery "starts" the engine. The Alternator keeps the engine going.
Regarding your Gas Pedal:
(1) Check underneath the dash where your Gas Pedal it located. Check for wires or anything else that could be hindering the Pedal from going down.
(2) With a Partner pushing down on the Pedal (engine on or off) Check inside the Engine compartment to watch the Throttle Cables for movement or binding. Also (with a partner) Pull on the throttle cable or turn the throttle connection to see if the Throttle is capable of openiing fully. The partner should be looking under the pedal to see if it is also moving. Do not force (too hard) the throttle or cables. If the throttle itself is binding, it may need cleaning: Remove and check for dirt, grime and function (opening / closing all the way). You can use some penetrating oil on moving part to loosen these areas.

Let me know if this helped or if you have additional questions or information. Feel free to contact me on!
