2001 Villager, speedometer cuts out

I have a 2001 Merc Villager and occasionally the speedometer cuts off while driving and the engine threatens to cut out, like it is out of gas. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: Rear seat removal 2000 merc Villager

We have a 1997 Mercury Villager. I don't know how different it is from ours. We cannot remove the back seat. We can remove the middle seat and slide the back seat forward. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Aircon dont work on 2001 Pulsar. Gas ok

I had such a problem in mine. It would work intermittently.
The thing to look at is whether the little green light on the aircon pushbutton is ON when the aircon should be running.
If like mine was it is OFF at any time, the problem is in the clutch control circuitry.
In my case, I removed the entire aircon control assembly. To get to it, it is necessary to start at the top panel, centre of dash. It prises off. I don't remember the entire sequence, but the front panels around the radio and aircon panels, and the air inlet ducts above the radio, also come away.
The radio has to be unscrewed and removed to gain access to the cables and connectors on the aircon panel. It is wise to disconnect the battery, but as I was not sure if I had the code to reset the radio, I left the battery connected, and just swung the radio clear after unplugging the antenna lead.
Now you can remove the control cables and connectors, the control cable outers can be released with a screwdriver from behind the plastic clips, and the cable inner unhooked from the control levers. Undoing the screws holding the panel in place will facilitate this.
In my case, having opened the control panel out of the car, resoldering all the connections between the 2 circuit boards and for the pins the plug connects to in the control panel solved my problem. I tested it without reconnecting the operating cables before reassembling everything back into place.
It has worked fine ever since... Good luck!

SOURCE: Speedometer on my 2004 Tiburon works thens cuts

Clean the connectors on the back of the BCM and on the back of the gauge cluster.

If that doesn't work, then it could be:
- Fuel Sender & Vehicle Speed Sensor (should cause your "Check Engine" light to come on)
- Gauge Cluster

You'll have to diagnose each of these possibilities.

Sounds like a problem with your crankshaft position sensor.

Hello, It can be the blower motor itself, which you can test by unplugging a connector on it and use a pair of wires the same diameter as those on the connector. Then run the ends of the test wires to the battery and carefully touch the opposite ends to the motor terminals while not allowing the wires to touch each other. If the motor spins then your problem is likely the blower motor resistor.

If the motor does not spin; remove it and go to an autoparts store like Autozone, Oreillys, or Advance and have it tested again before purchasing a different part.

The counter person at the autoparts can look up your blower motor resistor if the blower is good. They have diagrams for the location of this part. Some parts require removal of underdash ductwork and others can be accessed from the engine compartment. If this part is buried in the dash, some people go to a Salvage yard to retrieve the part. Working on a wreck will allow you to learn what to do and not tear up your own vehicle doing it.

2002 merc villager speedometer doesn't work, tach OK

The speedometer is electronic and controlled by a micro processor, the needle is operated by a special DC electric motor called a "stepper" motor, this little motor can cause this problem as well as the Vehicle speed sensor on the transmission (see photo below), either part can cause the problem, the cruise not working would lead me to believe the speed sensor is defective, but you should have a Check Engine light on and a fault code for the sensor, do you have either? Autozone and others do the fault code test for free, ask for an OBD2 fault test. Here is the picture of the sensor I mentioned.

2001 mercury villager, service engine lignt now on, and it struggles going up hills, wont shift into over drive. you press on the gas and nothing happens. we have had it checked out, and they do not...

need to know the engine DTC code causing the light first. But, it sounds like a distributor is needed. The cam sensor is in there and it controls spark and fuel.
