    Out of warrANTY?

    IF IT WAS A SHORT, THE FUSE OR BULB WOULD BLOW. GOING OUT IN 10 SECONDS sounds like an auto dim function when you lock the doors. Does it have auto dim?

Dodge has a flash update to solve this concern. It requires a software update to be downloaded to the CCN module. Can only be done at a dealer since Dodge is the only source for the software update and the scan tool. The update number is 08-026-06 Rev A , it should cost about half an hour labor to do. It is simply a cabin control node software glitch. This same update will also correct an inaccurate outside temp reading.

What color are the wires that go from door switch to dome lights on a 2005 mustang v6 conv.


The door switch doesn't go to the dome lights , the switch (door ajar switch ) is an input to the SMJ - smart junction box or body control module take your pick .
Principles of Operation
When the SJB detects a request for lighting, it turns on the interior lamps by supplying power to the lamps. The request for lighting can be an open door signal from a door ajar switch, an interior lighting on command from the instrument panel dimmer switch or an unlock command from a remote keyless entry (RKE) transmitter.
The door ajar switches are hard-wired directly to the SJB. The 2 door ajar switches are normally closed when the doors are closed. The decklid ajar switch is normally closed when the decklid is closed. All door ajar switches receive voltage from the SJB and each has its own ground circuit.
The instrument panel dimmer switch receives a ground signal from the SJB. The instrument panel dimmer switch provides variable resistance for backlighting the instrument cluster and a toggle ON/OFF function for the interior lights.
The RKE receiver is contained inside the SJB. When the SJB receives an unlock request from an RKE transmitter, it unlocks the doors and turns on the interior lamps. There could be DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes stored in the SJB ! You can not access these codes with a OBD2 code reader , need a factory scan tool .

Your best bet is to take to a ASE certified repair facility or a Ford dealer .

Check engine light is on the dealer said its code p0135 and sai it would cost around 400 dollar to fix it. can anyone tell me which o2 sensor it is and how to fix it and and how much ot cost


I am not certain which o2 sensor but I can tell you that replacing an o2 sensor is typically an easy affair (1-10 I'd give it a 4, 10 being the most difficult) Just be patient and take your time to properly track down the wiring harness and when installing route the same (whenever possible) Use a copper never-sieze on the threads of the sensor. Cost for the sensor will be @ $150 + - or so.

I hope this may have assisted you,
Tom

My shift indicator dash light intermittently goes dim. How can I access the bulb?


This is not a "bad bulb" situation. The odometer and shift quadrant is an electronic display and to repair it you have to remove the entire instrument panel and send it to GM or an independent repair shop. You can check E-Bay for the name of various shops that repair or replace the instrument panel. If you get a new one, you must have the model number of the current panel. That is obtained by having a mechanic remove your current on. On the back is the model number. I just had to replace mine and it cost me about $150 from a source I found on E-Bay. If you go to your Buick dealer, it will probably cost you close to $400 just for the panel.

2004 crown vic interior lights stay on


Don't think you have a door ajar switch problem , more then like the lighting control module is the culprit . Does the door ajar light on the instrument cluster stay lit ?
The interior lighting can be separated into two distinct modes of operation: the courtesy lighting and the demand lighting. The lighting control module (LCM) controls all of the interior lighting in the vehicle, as described in the following text.
The front dome lamps, rear reading lamps, and instrument panel courtesy lamps, can be illuminated either by opening any of the vehicle doors (courtesy lamp function) or by depressing the headlamp switch (demand lamp function).
When any door is open, the door ajar switch grounds an input to the LCM which then sends power to the courtesy lamps. The voltage sent to the courtesy lamps gradually increases from 0 volts to 12 volts within 500 ms (± 50 ms), to achieve the theater lighting effect. When the door(s) are closed the door ajar switch(es) break(s) the ground to the LCM input which then gradually reduces the power from 12 volts to 0 volts within 5 seconds. (± .5 second).
When the headlamp switch is depressed it grounds an input to the LCM which in turn sends 12 volts to the front dome lamps, rear reading lamps, and instrument panel courtesy lamps. When the headlamp switch is depressed a second time, it breaks the ground to the LCM input which then ceases to send power to the front dome lamps, rear reading lamps, and instrument panel courtesy lamps.

The battery saver will disrupt power to the courtesy lamps after 10 minutes, the demand lamps after 30 minutes, and the headlamps after 10 minutes. Turning the ignition switch to the RUN or ACC position will terminate the battery saver feature by disabling the interrupt timers and reinstate power to the lamps.
Do you know what DTC'S are ? diagnostic trouble codes !
