How to start a Ford Contour with out my key


Probably can't be done if it is late enough to be fitted with a security system. In that case the key will have a coded transponder which the system will recognise and send a signal the the engine management to switch it on.

You either need a correctly coded key or remove the engine ECU and have it decoded.

Can I switch a steering wheel and dash odometer with a 1998 Ford contour to a 1996 Ford contour?


No, sorry, the instrument cluster from 98 was different than the 96 model. 95-97 were similar. You will probably have better luck with the steering wheel, but be careful, it has to have the same options, ie: tilt or no tilt, cruise control, etc.

Problem with our 1998 Ford Contour windshield wiper. It stopped working - not sure why. Checked on the motor...working. Problem could be the switch. Checked the fuses under the steering wheel...none...


If the motor is running then the fuse shouldnt be the problem, iv had problems in the past where the tensioning spring that keeps the blade against the window is too tight and has seized the wiper, turn on the wipers and lift the wipers gently and drop them back into place a few times, a few gentle nudges wont hurt,
Hope this helps,
Sion.

A headset wire stuck (wound) in crack of steering column in 1998 Contour. How do we retrieve it? Can the wheel be dismantled?


Yes - the steering wheel can be removed, just be prepared for the wire to be smashed or mangles and unusable. Look on the back side of the steering wheel - you will see some small holes for the retaining screws for the center piece of the steering wheel. If your model has an airbag in the wheel you will need to disconnect the battery to prevent activating the airbag.Remove the panel below the steering wheel to access the harness for the airbag and unplug. Now remove those retaining screws and the center piece of the wheel. Now you will see a large nut on the center shaft of the column.Before you remove the center nut, look at how many threads are exposed above the nut before removing. Lock the steering wheel and remove that nut. Now you will need a steering wheel puller. Find the fasteners that fit your wheel and mount the puller, Turn the puller shaft 3 turns and try to remove wire - if it won't come out then you'll need to completely remove the wheel to extract the wire. Place the wheel back on the column shaft and use that center nut to re - install the steering wheel. You may need to place that nut socket over the shaft around the threaded part and tap lightly to seat the wheel far enough to use the nut to seat the wheel back down. Press steering wheel until it sits where it did in the beginning. Re - install center piece, plug in airbag and replace that lower panel. Your local auto parts store may have a steering wheel puller for rent - if not, they are not expensive to buy ( should be less than $10.00 USD).
Hope this helps!!

I cant get key or steering wheel to turn on my 99 ford contour


Let me suggest that you try any other key that you have for that car if you have one, sometimes a key can be bent or twisted & no longer work properly. Secondly, you could just have the steering wheel "pinched" into a tight position so you need to turn it left or right to relieve the pressure while you are attempting to turn the key.(it's just a 1/2 inch of movement or so that you're looking to move it while it is locked) If this fails to release the ignition switch & allow you to turn the key on, then there is something either wrong with the ignition cylinder or the ignition switch. good luck
