This info should be in your service manual. It usually involves turning the key in the "on" position several times very quickly. Hope this helps.

Nothing work on my dash board of my 2000 Ford Windstar


I have a 2000 Windstar so maybe I can help. You say you checked all fuses - that would be all five in the central junction box. If you check 20A fuse 2 and replace it you should get your instrument cluster lights back. Also check 20A fuse 17 which feeds the data bus that supplies information to the various gauges and indicators

How to get the change engine oil soon light to go off on my van


Because the steps to resetting the "Change Oil" nag message are different between model years, and even between models in the same year... I will try and do my best to answer your question.
If you have the message center do the following: Click on the setup button until you get to system check. Click on reset and when it asks you to press/hold reset for the oil % just do so. Then it'll ask you to hold the reset button again. Then it will proceed with a system check.
If this does not work for you You can cancel the signal with an OBD reader tool. You can buy one or go to Autozone and borrow it and reset the oil light in there parking lot. Well i hope this helps you.

Check your fuses under hood and on dash. Some of these use two different fuses for rt. & lt. Look in you owners manual for the correct fuses to check. If it is a fuse problem, you will have to find out why the fuse was blown. Good luck
