Probably just needs a recharge. Low pressure switch is not allowing it to come on anymore.

Intermittent lock working, interior light, air conditioner, windows not working


Start with windows. If none work at any switch, check the circuit break. Swap it with another. After that it could be the master switch on the drivers door or a broken wire between the door and body in the rubber boot at the front of the door. Air conditioning. could be low freon, high pressure switch or compressor. Controllers rarely go bad. Check fuses first. Lights. Again fuses first, Then open another door. If the lights come on, Replace the door latch in the drivers door. If not, it could be the dimmer/head light switch, Usually in the dash. Or the BCM or wiring to it is bad. all this takes a volt/ohm meter to check.

HI,how do i get my digital dash and air conditioner gauges to display.


Bad ground under the dash, no doubt. Check all of your chassis ground connections.

My 2004 lincoln ls air conditioner is blowing hot air. The ac filter light is on and so is the check engine light. Please help. What could be the problem? Does the system just need to be charged?


Your issues can not be answered easily or definitively, as the LS is very complex and all electronic.
I would need the stored codes,that set the check light (MIL Light)
You can cycle the right dash display to ACFilter and Reset,with the top row of buttons,in center of dash. There is no sensor on the Cabin Filter. All the dash displays, are just reminders,you can set any way you want, % wise.

Possible issues--Fuses
-- Coolant control valve
--DATC module

You will need a really good Technician,not a general mechanic, to diagnose your problem
You need to put a professional scanner on it, to start any diagnostic work

Fuses no. 7 & 37 on my 318is K-reg Bmw keep MELTING.


you have to figure out where there is a short in your wiring--follow wires, look for broken, missing insulation--if it started in lights, look there first maybe. Also check the connections of plugs. Good luck it may take some searching.

1997 Blazer dash displays ABS light, Air Bag...sometimes battery light.


I think your BCM which is the body control module has failed, have a self test run on it to see if it will give any codes, if it won't test then it is the problem.
