    If it was a problem with the safty switch or the solenoid, there would still be spark when rolling the engine by jumping the starter, I already checked the fuses and they were fine.



    Thanks

    What is the key transponder? Where is it, how is it reprogramed? You are sure that this Contour has this key transponder,,,,,, right?



    Thanks

Sounds like the imobilizer has been activated,If so you will need to have the key transponder reprogrammed.

    Yes it has a it in the key,The ingition will only work correctly when the right transponder key is used,you can not just have a key cut at the hardware store and make it work due to the chip inside the key.

There are several things to check, if this is just all the sudden it occured, the solenoid may have went out, also have you tried to put it into neutral and start? check for fuses.It sounds like it possibly could be neutral safety switch but check fuses. if it is at all possible try to tap on side of starter solenoid.If this lets it start change it even though it seems fixed.

99 ford contour daytime running lights work, but high beams do not.


I live in Australia & I don't fully understand the term " daytime running lights " but high beam & low beam lights are on separate fuses as is the parking lights so you probably have a blown fuse, check all the fuses in the fuse box......hope this helps......cheers.

Truck won't start, acts like bad battery but is not. Mini message center on dash says TEST.


check starter motor windings, possible burnt coil or worn brushes. the starter feeds ign power to ign circuit while under crank.

Radio, clock and interior lights don't work. all fuses are good.


For all those who have a situation where the interior courtesy lamps and radio don't work in a ford contour: After dozens of uncomfortable minutes checking fuses under the hood and under the dash I realized the problem wasn't the fuzes but instead it was the courtesy lamp relay in my 2000 ford contour. A $6 part from O' Reilly's (R6026 or V09174) and voila! Interior lights are on and I can finally get that Disturbed disk out of the CD player. It was real fun contorting my body into positions not intended for any human to access the fuse panel under the dash (just above where your left leg would be when driving). Best of luck to all. Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.
