Question about Ford Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Is there a computer adjustment to bring the digital dash display up? The adjustment knob, left of the dash, does nothing at all.

I called the local Ford dealer service and the best they can come up with is replace the $800 digital display. That sounds like BS, surely there is some adjustment. The radio display and Heat/aircon display are fine.

GM DELCO THEFTLOCK RADIO UNLOCK CODE:
1. Press and hold presets 2 and 3 for about 5 to 10 seconds until you
get 3 digits on your display. This is the first 3 of 6 digits you will
need, so write 'em down.
2. After doing step one and writing down the code, immediately press
the
AM/FM button to get the last 3 of the 6 numbers you'll need, and write
'em down. (if you wait too long between steps 1 and 2 and the LOC code
displays again, just start over).
3. Call this number, it's a prerecorded message, so don't worry about
having to talk to anyone...1-800-537-5140. The voice will ask if
you're
calling for Chevy, Pontiac, Cadillac, etc... When you here him tell
you
to press "2" for Pontiac, press 206010 and hit the # key. He'll ask
you
for the 6 digit code that you've written down. Enter that and press
the
* key. He will then give you a code, and the option to get additional
4
digit codes, but one should be sufficient.
4. Follow the normal procedure in your owners manual for unlocking the
radio with your new code...press the hour set button on your radio
until
you get the first two numbers of the code, then press the minute set
button until you've entered the last two numbers. Immediately press
the
AM/FM button once the correct code is entered and the code SEC or
"secured" will be displayed on the display screen. Now, just turn the
radio on, and your ready to roll.
There is an additional step you can take to remove all codes from the
radio and start from scratch by entering your own personalized 4 digit
code so that it won't get you in a pickle again! Just repeat step 4
and
you should get a display screen that reads ---. This means the code is
out, and you can now program your own code. Of course, once you
receive
the 4 digit code from the GM recorded message, just keep it in a safe
place, because you can use that same code again and again should you
have any more problems with it in the future. Good luck, and yes, it
does work.

SOURCE: Dash Control Unit Replacement

You can save a LOT of money by fixing it yourself.

All that is wrong with the knob are broken wires from the knob's PC board to the main PC board on the AC control.

All you have to do is remove the AC main control, take it apart, and resolder the broken wires from the PC board with the knob on it, to the main AC pc board. There are 3 wires, any number could be broken.

If you take it apart and solder the broken wires, this WILL fix your issue. Just make sure you put the wires back exactly where they go.

A FIXYA rating (4 blue diamonds) would be most appreciated for my assistance.

SOURCE: 2008 Ford Escape Horn Fuse keeps blowing after

I would trace the wire from the horn and see if it was inadvertently damaged when the alternator was installed. If you have a voltmeter, you can remove the horn fuse and check to see if there is continuity between the horn (non hot side) of the fuse and the car body. This would indicate a short in the wire running from the fuse box to the horn. You can also look around the alternator mounting area to see if any wires are being pinched. Hope this helps. Good luck!

The message center on my 2003 impala keeps flashing all the messages..im unable to clear useing radio knobs..when i hold them in i get a clicking noise coming from left side of dash


are you turning the radio off and holding the display (bottom button) in for about 10 seconds? that is the way to bring up the settings menu. if it is showing all the messages however, i would guess there is a bigger issue.

    How do i dim all my interior lights with the headlights off in my 2011 dodge charger


    There should be an adjustment knob just to the left of the steering column that will adjust the brightness of the dash lights. The problem you will have is the Dash lights only activate when the parking lights or headlights are on with the switch unless you have automatic running lights which will activate the dash lights when the running lights activate.

    Need car stereo code for honda accord 1995


    stereo codes for Honda

    Method 1 (all applicable models except '03-07 Accords with the navigation system)
    1. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
    2. Turn on the audio unit, and make sure you see stereo COdE in the display. If you don't see this message, pull the backup fuse for 1 minute, and then go back to step 1.
    3. Turn off the audio unit.
    4. Press and hold the 1 and 6 preset buttons, then turn on the audio unit. The display toggles between two screens. The first screen displays a U and the first four digits of the serial number (for example, U2200). The second screen displays an L and the last four digits of the serial number (for example, L0055). Ignore the U and L, and write down all eight digits.

    Method 2 ('03-07 Accords with the navigation system)
    1. Turn the ignition switch to ACC (I).
    2. Turn on the audio unit, and make sure you see COdE in the upper display. If you don't see this message, pull the backup fuse for 1 minute, and then go back to step 1.
    3. Turn off the audio unit.
    4. Press and hold the top halves of the SEEK/SKIP and CH/DISC bars, and then press and release the PWR/VOL knob. This display toggles between two screens. The first screen displays a U and the first four digits of the serial number (for example, U2200). The second screen displays an L and the last four digits of the serial number (for example, L0055). Ignore the U and L, and write down all eight digits.
    5. Call Honda Dealer for Radio Code.
    6. Use the TUNE knob to enter the first four digits of the anti-theft code into the audio unit. (Ignore the last digit; it's not used.) When you turn the TUNE knob, COdE disappears, and a single digit is displayed. Turn the knob left or right to select each of the anti-theft code digits. When you press the TUNE knob, the system beeps and accepts each digit as it spells out CODE on the display.
