How to reset or deactivate anti theft system on ford contour 1998


That is a good question to ask. Unfortunately, no it can't .
In 1998 there were 2 different type of PATS systems used on the v6 . One was a type E (after build date 2/2/98) which incorporated it into the POWERTRAIN CONTROL MODULE (PCM for short from here on) and the early type called a type A , which used a stand-alone PATS module that communicated with the PCM via the SCP network connection.
Without a valid key, this will not run.
Do you have another key? Sometimes the key itself is the problem. Failing that, the best bet is to get the vehicle into a shop that has the factory tool for that system . If the PATS system is ok, they can clear the keys memorized by the PATS system. If it's a type A they can program 1 new key and you'll be in business again. If it's a type E, you're going to have to buy 2 keys (requires a minimum of 2 memorized keys to start).
I hope that answers your question.

Speedometer dont work


which engine, 1MZ? what? the engine dictates the ECU the ECU dictates what scan tool works this year.
what country, not stating that ,makes all answers wrong.
so as always, i post from USA , answers


The speedo on 95 series cars have a VSS,
and if it is dead, the PCM will be glowing the ECU and very unhappy,

so l mr. ABS 100x angry...too.. Ignore ABS for now;.
as they say first things, first.
you turn key , to on, CEL glows, (must) means PCM happy.(self checks)
you start car, the CEL goes out and stays out , does it? no i bet.
you drive, and CEL comes on , you insert the diagnostic, jumper (non IMZ engine)
and bingo CEL flashes out code for VSS dead?

code 9, code 42? others?
post your DTC error code and we CAN fix it.
OBD1: engines.
http://www.troublecodes.net/toyota/

ok , id fix the speedometer first.
sure would.
bad cable? did you test and check the cable yet?
i looked up your car at alldata.com so could you.
VSS is manditory for many ECU/PCM /TCM and ABS functions.
mandatory.
your car i think is USA car, is it? , and if YES< then is OBD2 compliant?
see list of cars below that are, (early OBD2)
so if it is , scan it after driving say 30 miles, or 5miles fast.
got P0500 that is a dead VSS.
fix speedo. now.
any scan tool made for OBd2 works on IMZ engine, here, state side.


data: OBD2: cars.
1994 vehicles equipped with the early OBD II systems include Buick Regal 3800 V6, Corvette, Lexus ES3000, Toyota Camry (1MZ-FE 3.0L V6) and T100 pickup (3RZ-FE 2.7L four), Ford Thunderbird & Cougar 4.6L V8, and Mustang 3.8L V6.

1995 vehicles with OBDII include Chevy/GMC S, T-Series pickups, Blazer and Jimmy 4.3L V6, Ford Contour & Mercury Mystique 2.0L four & 2.6L V6, Chrysler Neon, Cirrus and Dodge Stratus, Eagle Talon 2.0L DOHC (nonturbo), and Nissan Maxima and 240 SX.

The gear shift indicator lights on my 2000 Ford Contour (V6) are very dim. Is there a bulb or led that can be replaced to brighted this up? Where is that accessed? thanks,


yes its kind of a pain to change but there is a single t10 style wedge bulb 194 or 168

go to the auto parts store and buy a pack of 168 silver-star bulbs (they are $$$ like 10 bucks) but will be the best solution for brightness...

don't waste your money on led's like me they fail a lot due to overheating or make bad connections because they are in a plastic base

I was reading in one of my repair manuals and it says in there that there could be a block where the exhaust gas pressure sensor is. There could be a blocked inlet hose. Or it could be the ECM.

1995 FORD Contour GL V6 AUTO ; Trans.> speed sensor prob.


The speed sensor signal goes through the speedo cluster and then to the PCM, this is the main computer that controls trans and engine functions, in order to see if the PCM is getting the speed sensor signal you need to install what we call a break out box to monitor the signal and see where it is being lost, it could be the connector ar the transmission, pull it off and make sure the wires are not broken inside the insulation near the connector plastic shell, There is no way to fix this without these checks.
