What would cause temperature gauge bouncing ?


Sounds like the sending unit has an intermittent short to ground. Unhook the the wire from the sending unit, and see if the needle stops jumping around. If it quits jumping around, replace the sending unit. If it still jumps around, you have a bare spot somewhere on the wire and it is hitting ground which will cause the needle to jump. Cut out the bad part of the wire and splice in a new section. That should fix it.

I put a transmission in my 2001 Mercury Sable Ls. The car runs beautiful but I have electrical problems. I lost all power to my wipers, all my doors, my radio and my trunk release. I have check fuses and...


sounds to me like you have a grounding problem, did the battery terminal cable on the negative side go to the tranny and the body of the car ? have you checked the relay to make sure it actually works? if you jumper it and that makes it work,, you probably have a faulty relay and if thats the case you may have had a power surge in that panel of fuses that shorted out some other things, have you tried testing each side of the fuse locations for power? the fuse may be fine but is there actual power at the source,, continuity tests on fuses for failure work fine if the fuse is \out,, check for an actual 12 volts with a meter, let me know what you find out,,

Gas gauge not working


my 97 grand prix had a habbit of doing that.. it wasn't much though it would bounce between wherever it was at when i started to an 1/8th of a tank below that. depending on how much it does it and how far it bounces around i would have the sending unit checked (much cheaper if you are mechanically inclined and can do it yourself)
