15 minutes is a fair time when dealing with centrelink . If you leave an email message expect a six week wait.

The speedometer works part of the time to read right speed and then it goes crazyreading what ever it wants either high or too low some times it gets stuck on 15 mph in park or reads 10 to 15 when driving...

If the car is otherwise working OK, it's probably your instrument cluster (IPC). There is an electronic sensor on your transmission that sends a signal to your engine computer (ECM) and the IPC. Your transmission changes gears in response to this sensor, so if it's shifting properly, and the other gauges are ok, the ECM should be OK

1997 passat, need winter tires. 215 50 15, oem's. What sizes can I go to for replacement? Phil.

If it were my car I would try to stick to a 215 15 with a mud and snow or M+S tread design but I would be looking for a middle number of 70 not 50. The middle number is the width of the tread and in snow a skinny tire is better than a wide tire. It will cut through instead of float over. Floating is okay until you spin, then you are done. Disregard any sales pitch about all season treads being good for winter. It should be illegal for them to claim that because they are no good in any amout of snow more than 2 flakes thick. You could go down to a 205 15 without a lot of trouble but any smaller will start to lower the front of your car significantly. If you go to a larger 225 then you may run into issues with steering and suspension travel, not to mention they will cost a little more. If you live in an area with a lot of ice during the winter you may want to consider studding the tires. It will make a difference but if most of your winter driving is on bare or nearly bare roads don't bother. Studs can be a problem on bare roads and most places have strict rules about when you can put them on and when they come off.
Look for a 215-70-15 or a 205-70-15 for the best results. If you can get a 75 even better but try to stay away from a 50 for winter driving if you can. Hope this helps.

Section 15-00: Audio Systems—Service 1999 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING Inspection and Verification NOTE: Many customers do not understand the limitations of FM reception. Refer the customer to the Owner Guide for information about the limitations of FM radio performance.

Internal diagnostic examination of the integrated control panel, rear chassis unit and audio compact disc player should be left to the authorized radio service center. However, the automotive technician should be able to analyze and isolate radio reception conditions to the proper area or component causing the condition. All radio conditions can be isolated to one of six general areas:
  • antenna system
  • integrated control unit
  • radio speaker system
  • radio noise suppression equipment
  • rear chassis unit
  • audio communications protocol network
Retrieving Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs)
Using Audio System On-Board Diagnostics
The audio system has on-board diagnostic capabilities and is equipped to check for every component available in the system even if this specific vehicle is not equipped with all components. A Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be set for the missing components. These DTCs can be ignored if the vehicle is not equipped with these components. The battery must be fully charged for proper audio system operation. The ignition switch must be in the RUN or ACC position. Turn the system on, tune in a strong AM station and verify good reception. After an AM station is checked, tune in a strong FM station. The system is now ready to enter the diagnostic mode. Diagnostic Mode:
NOTE: Battery must be fully charged for proper audio system operation and self-test.

Enter Diagnostics mode by pressing SEEK DOWN button first and then pre-set button 3. Hold both buttons for five seconds. This will suspend all normal radio functions, retain the previously selected frequency and display DIAG.
  1. NOTE: To perform diagnostics, press the appropriate buttons as instructed.

    Press pre-set button 1. This will check for connection of all possible devices and log the diagnostic trouble codes for any device that does not respond. The display will flash SELF while gathering the diagnostic trouble codes, then stop flashing when complete. To exit System Configuration Self-test, press pre-set button 1 again. To retrieve diagnostic trouble codes, press the TUNE UP button. This will display the diagnostic trouble codes if any exist. Continued pressing of the TUNE UP button will display the next diagnostic trouble code. Record codes and refer to the following table. To exit the Retrieval Mode, press pre-set button 1.

    CONFIGURATION SELF-TEST CODES Code Description 0 No diagnostic trouble codes logged 1 No response from rear chassis unit 2 No response from tape deck 3 No response from bezel microprocessor 4 No response from compact disc player 5 No response from steering wheel controls 6 No response from rear seat control 7 No response from remote climate control 8 No response from navigation module 9 Read Only Memory verification failed
    Remember, system configuration will test for all possible equipment connections. Inspect the vehicle to determine actual equipment installed.
  1. Integrated control panel display test:
    To enter the integrated control panel display test, press pre-set button 5. This check will light all segments in the integrated control panel. The system will automatically exit this test after five seconds.
  1. Integrated control panel and rear chassis unit identification:
    To enter this test, press pre-set button 3. This test identifies the software level of the integrated control panel and rear chassis unit. The integrated control panel is tested first, followed by the rear chassis unit. The completed test will exit automatically. For code identification, refer to the following table. The display will have two sequences of five codes each. The first sequence is for the integrated control panel, the second sequence is for the rear chassis unit.
