Overhead light console removal

I'm adding a dash cam, but I need power, so I need to remove the overhead light console and tap into switched power. I found two stews under the Emergency Assist plate, but there is still something holding the cover in place. I'm afraid that prying it out will break the console, even with two screws removed it still seems very secure. ............help!

SOURCE: I need to replace the rear wiper arm. Removed

There is a special puller that is used for removing the wiper arms on some vehicles. They are usually sold for cheap in any automotive parts store.

When you reinstall it, the nut should be sufficient for pressing the arm back down onto the shaft. Just make sure it is in the same position.

Dome lights don't come on when you open the doors but light works when you push button on dome.


The dome lamp has a switch that can be put into several positions. "Door" "Off" and "On" If you want the light to come on when you open the door then you must have the switch in the "Door" position.
The "Off" position will only let the dome lamp work when you override it with the dash control and the "On" position will leave the light on at all times - door open or not.

Readout in overhead console not working


This is a very common problem with many of the mid 2000 Ford truck and SUV overhead consoles. The console is very prone to internal failure. If the dome lights work but the compass unit does not then it is a faulty computer unit. I offer a reasonable repair service with a lifetime guarantee, check it out: www.autoclockrepair.com
There is a bunch of useful info there. Drop me an email if you have questions, thanks!

How do I remove the overhead console in my Ford 1-50 to change a light bulb. I ordered the bulb from the Ford house, but they want a small fortune to replace the bulb


With the overhead console ( non rail system ), open the sun glass bin, and grab each corner in the back, and pull down.

The overhead is held on with 4 or 6 spring clips, and pulls straight down.

The bulbs are 1/4 twist sockets installed from the back of the overhead console.

Overhead console, display gauge no power


This is a problematic module. It seems as though the soldering done on the module to complete the circuits was performed without taken into consideration that a vehicle on the road rolls over bumps, and gets warm and cold very quickly. All this points to this being your problem. The module itself is VERY expensive. This is not your only recourse. There are companies that repair these modules, for less than $50.00. digitalguy_1@charter.net is the e-mail for David Ruhberg. He will repair the unit, and guarantees his work. To get the module out, there is one screw in the sunglasses compartment, holding the whole overhead console to the roof of the vehicle. Once it's removed, you need to lightly wiggle and pry the console until it comes separated from the friction catches. After that, remove the connector from the module, and remove the module from the console. The vehicle will run fine without the module.

My sunroof is not able to be closed. It is in the pop up position. Is there a manual way to close it? eg no use of electricity?


there is no manual method. It sounds like a limit switch is not working. Can you hear the motor try to operate? If you push up on the back of the glass a little bit while hitting the switch, what happens.

The sliding roof panel system consists of the following components:
  • RH circuit breaker
  • Timer module
  • Power window relay
  • Roof sliding panel switch (15B691)
  • Roof glass panel (50054)
  • Sliding roof panel motor (15790)
  • Halo moulding
  • Roof sliding panel headlining (519A02)
  • Roof sliding panel slide links (502M78)
  • Roof sliding panel housing (502C22)
  • Roof air deflector (500A26)
  • Center green diode strip
-------------------------------------
When the roof sliding panel switch is activated, a gear on the sliding roof panel motor drives a spline on the roof sliding panel housing. Within the roof sliding panel housing, the spline is connected to two sliding roof panel cables which cause the roof sliding panel slide links to slide and the roof glass panel to open or to close. The sliding roof panel cables and the spline are part of the roof sliding panel housing. Neither the sliding roof panel motor nor the roof sliding panel housing can be disassembled. If a malfunction is detected with either of these assemblies, the assembly must be replaced.
