Question about 1996 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

Dome Light, Temp. Gauge and Compress does not work.

I have checked the fuses and they all seem to be working fine. Recently, I opened my back window and the ''door open'' indicator will not go out. Does this have anything to do with why the light and gauges are not working.

Check the micro switch which should be in the door frame or jam area. I think that is your prob.

Engine Temperature Gage at the Instrument Panel not working


Your temp.gauge is probably bad ! Check for voltage at the coolant temp. sender ! You have to check it with the engine running . The red with white stripe should have a voltage the other wire ,yellow with red stripe is ground side ! Instrument panel fuse box fuse # 15 a 10amp fuse powers the gauges ,if your gas gauge works it's not the fuse . The dome lights get there power from an other fuse an circuit ! Did you check the bulb ? Check fuse # 8 IP fuse box , also a 10amp . Check for voltage at the dome light ,switch on !

1990 Nissan 4X4 pickup? The blower motor, gas&temp gauge, 4wd indicator light all stopped working at the sametime. Happened a time or to and came back now it has not worked in days. I have exterior...


Trace your wires from your heater. Check your fuses also, the heater wire likely shorted into the ground for the gauges or vice-versa. You have to have some wires rubbing together under the dash somewhere.

HELP!! Having electrical issues with my 2005 Pontiac


electical is hard to diagnose with out being there. i would treat each problem seperately. first you will need to test the engine temp gauge sending unit. in a dealership this is easy with a scanner they can run a sweep test to se if the gauges are responding.you don't want the engine to over heat if the gauge is not working. next problem the dome light should be easy to fixe does the dome light work with the dome switch?remove the bulb and with the doors open and switch on check for voltage, if voltage check connection and or replace bulb. if no voltage check fuses for voltage.last will need to have the dtc po243 checked out by a repair shop. i hope this will help.

Same problem: door ajar light was on, dome light


Check fuse 23, 27 and 33 inside the vehicle. Chances are you blew a fuse when the dome lamp shorted. The modules should be okay.

Fuel gauge, temp gauge, and auto door locks stopped working while in transit. checked obvious fuses, found no problems. did not check all fuses. Ideas


I had a similar problem with a 2001 Saturn. We checked every fuse and they were all fine. We finally did a 'reset' on the car's computer by disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it a few minutes later. Everything was back to normal after that.

The radio/clock dash light on my 2004 matrix are out! ...solution?


The 15 amp dome fuse is in the fuse box under the hood and the 15 amp CIG fuse is in the lower finish panel up under the dash on the drivers side. These are needed for the radio. The above fuses plus the 15 amp Gauge fuse in the box with the dome fuse under the hood are needed for the clock.

I also have clock removal instructions at my website www.autoclockrepair.com

1989 Ford F150 Instrument Cluster Problem


Some of the gauges are on the same fuse as the dome light; check the fuses. The other main source of gauge problems for this vintage F150 is the sending units and I don't use the term sending unit lightly, so when you go to the parts store make sure you say you are looking for sending units not sensors (sensors hook to the computer) sending units are of 2 types for this vintage F150, lights and guages you need the ones for gauges, the oil sending unit is about 4 dollars and the coolant temp sending unit for a guage is about the same.

I have 4 fords and you will come to understand that the wiring is a jury rig, all this come out when they are the age of your 1989 PU.
