I have a 2006 Ford 500. The check engine light came on today and I can't find anything in the manual telling me what to do. It is a solid light, not blinking. The manual talks about codes, etc....

The manual won't give you that information. The vehicle needs to be diagnosed by a professional. At the very least, you will need to purchase or borrow a code reader, which are not that expensive to buy anymore anyways. Once you get the code, you will know which system needs to be diagnosed for issues.

Ford taurus 2000 ses won't start makes clicking sound when turning the ignition...all power on lights,radio

Hi, this is often caused by a low battery. Try a jump start. If that works, remove the jumper cables and check the voltage at the battery with the car still running. Voltage should be at least 14 volts DC. If not, remove the alternator and have it tested at your local parts chain. If the jump start doesn't work, please get back to me.

Check engine light is on. how do i diagnose it without a scanner

in the engine compartment there is a small fuse box labeled ¨DLC¨ or ¨diagnostic¨ . Flip open the cap and on the inside of the cap is a chart of the terminals. use a paper clip or small jumper wire to jump terminals T and E1. then turn on the ignition switch to "on" but not start. The check engine light will start flashing codes. Example: two flashes, pause, three flashes = Code 23. the codes will repeat until you turn off the key or remove the jumper. Look up the codes online at a toyota forum or come back here with the codes and we'll tell you what they mean. Don't forget to remove the jumper before starting the engine.

My car when I drive it feels like there is an earthquake in my front seat. My check engine light is also on. Its a 2006 Ford Freestyle V6 with approx 61,000 miles on it.

I would check your tires for a seperation, and then diagnose your check engine light to see what trouble code its storing. Hope this helps.

You may have some warranty left. Some DOHC engines have a special problem with Cam Phasers. The throttle position sensor could have been harmed by the jump. Have a dealer run the Vin#.

The electronics could need reeducating. Its possible that the brains could have new variables caused by the jump. It would not necessarily "burn out" the brain but flipped some settings with the extra power.
