The temperature sending unit is probably bad. This will cause the circuit to ground out and send the needle all the way to hot. You can unplug the sending unit(it will be on the block near the radiator hose) and see if it still does it. If it does it's the sending unit.

How do i remove the ignition switch on a 1979 ford thunderbird?


Sounds like the circuit board behind the dash. They will short out over time. As far as ignition switch:put key in use a paper clip or equivalent to put in the small hole turn switch. Sould pull right out.

1996 jeep grand Cherokee starting problem. Turn ignition switch on - no fuel gauge, volt meter and no primary coil voltage. Move switch on and off multiple times then gauges work and it will start.


The most likely fault is a bad ignition switch. The electrical portion of your ignition switch has probably failed...well, only part time failure, jiggling the switch on and off will cause it to make contact again. Everything you say that doesn't work, should be working just by turning the key to on.
Are you looking beyond the switch for something not triggering? Don't make it too complicated: switch on, and the pcm should be powered up (along with dash gauges being on and the check engine light is on.) That means you should now see that voltage at the ASD relay, as it is now "on" and power is going to the coil and to the injection system. Your switch is the only thing tying everything together. If it doesn't work, nothing else works. This sure sounds like the electrical portion of the switch, not the lock cylinder portion, but examine carefully. Some ignitions have a metal rod from the lock cylinder to the electrical portion where the rod moves a sliding bar across different electrical contacts. Sometimes this mechanical linkage can foul up and cause switch problems.

Cooling fan will not run


CHECK FUSES /FUSIBLE LINKS IF THEY ARE GOOD RUN THE ENGINE UNTILL NORMAL OPERATING TEMPERTURE IS REACHED , THEN ALLOW IT TO IDLE . IF THE FAN DOES NOT CUT IN WITHIN A FEW MINUTES ,OR BEFORE THE TEMPERATURE GAUGE APPROACHES THE 110 MARK OR THE RED END OF THE SCALE ,SWITCH OFF THE IGNITION AND DISCONNECT THE WIRING PLUG FROM THE COOLING FAN SWITCH , BRIDGE THE RELEVANT TWO CONTACTS IN THE WIRING PLUG USING A LENGHT OF SPARE WIRE AND SWITCH ON THE IGNITION . IF THE FAN NOW OPERATES , THE SWITCH IS PROBABLY FAULTY AND SHUD BE RENEWED.

My 02 envoy will not turn over


Sounds like the ignition switch. Does the tack when you first turn over the switch jump down and kinda start to climb and do the indicator lights under the tack cluster pulse dimb and bright? They should be bright .
