SOURCE: Instrument panel went dead

Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).

SOURCE: Hi Guys I have 2004 starex crdi van ,,before one

I would start by spraying starting fluid in the air cleaner. If it starts you will know that it is a fuel problem. If not then it will be an electrical problem.

You'll need to have someone scan the computer to get the trouble codes to proceed.
Most auto parts stores will scan for free in hopes of selling you some parts. The codes only tell the mechanic what to test, not what to replace.

Check Charging System/told not the alternator


Check your battery connections - where the cables connect to the battery posts AND where the cables connect to the starter/main power feed and where the ground cable connects to the engine and/or frame. A poor or corroded connection can cause intermittent problems and poor charging performance.

How do i know which alternator i need ( without taking it out first)? Parts guy says there are two different casing sizes.


Hi, the two different ones resemble the amperage rating. either one will fit, it depends on the options in the van. lesser power options would result in lesser amperage alternator, and vice versa. I personally would go with the lesser cost item. Good luck...

i suggest that you drive it to an auto parts store that checks your charging system for free, advanced auto auto zone etc.etc.,there testers give the most acurate readings .as you turn on a/c light the voltage will drop from 14 from my limited knowledge on electical i think at an idle its okay as long as the voltage stays above 9.6 while under load for 15 seconds .but those guys there know the right stuff

Ford Winstar ain't startin'


Yes the alternator you installed is fried. Take it back and then when you put the new one in disconnect the battery first before installing. If the battery is connected while installing it will ALWAYS fry the alternator. Most parts guys don't tell you that so live and learn. This should help.
