My 99 Montana instrument cluster lights won't work. They will come on while riding down the road.


Sounds like you have lose connection , probably a ground wire under the dash . May mean pulling the instrument panel to find it . Ground 200 is ground point for instrument lights ,

Unknown driver, flashing gages, lose of instrument panel


Check the ground connection at the battery and the other end where it connects to the engine or frame. If it connects to the frame check to see that the grounding strap fom the engine to the firewall is intact and well connected. Bad grounds can cause all sorts of strange problems with the electrical system. Hope this helps.

Needto replace heater core in 99 ford taurus,need help


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Replacement heater core
  • Clean container
  • Wrench
  • Screwdriver
  • Steering wheel nut
    Removal
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable and wait at least one minute for the air bag system to lose power. Make sure the front wheels are straight ahead and lock the steering column.

  2. Detach the air bag module by removing the bolts from underneath both sides of the steering wheel and the electrical connector. Remove the steering wheel bolt and press the wheel away from the steering column. Remove the lower steering column cover.

  3. Insert a 1/8-inch wire or pin punch in the shroud hole under the ignition switch while it's in the "Run" position. Press on the pin and pull on the ignition switch lock cylinder to remove it.

  4. Disassemble and remove the instrument panel from the Taurus' interior. This includes the radio and all panels, electrical connectors, harnesses and screws. You'll need an assistant to help you lift and remove the instrument panel.

  5. Drain the engine coolant from the cooling system, using a clean container for reuse. Remove the heater hoses, actuator and metal cover from the heater. Disengage the spring from the heater core cover and the lever.

  6. Depress the locking ramp and remove the lever from the secondary air temperature control (the lever is brittle, so don't bend it). Remove the primary air conditioning air temperature control door shaft from the pin.

  7. Remove the heater core cover and seal from the heater/air conditioning housing assembly. Remove the heater core from the heater/air conditioning housing by pressing on the core tubes and assembly.

  8. Installation
  9. Install the replacement heater core to the heater/air conditioning housing. Install the core cover, seal, lever, spring, metal cover, actuator and heater hoses.

  10. Replace and assemble the instrument panel with your assistant's help. Connect the steering wheel (use a new bolt to connect it to the column), air bag and negative battery cable.

  11. Refill the cooling system with either the old coolant or new. Start the Taurus' engine and let it reach normal operating temperature. Watch the climate control operation and check for any leaks.

First off you need to know how these thing's work ,computer controlled .

Trunk Release Function
When the PZM receives a serial data message for the activation of the trunk release solenoid from the instrument cluster or from the RFA, the PZM energizes the trunk release relay under the following conditions:
• The transmission is in PARK
• The valet lockout switch is not activated.

Components
This vehicle has electronic components which the service technician controls in order to provide valuable self-diagnostic information. These components are part of an electrical network that controls various engine subsystems and various body subsystems. A description of each of these subsystems is in the appropriate subsection of this service manual. These major components that compromise the computer system monitor the system sensors and the system switches. These components are the following:
• The powertrain control module (PCM)
• The instrument cluster
• The air controller module (ACM)
• The sensing and diagnostic module (SDM)
• The electronic brake and traction control module (EBTCM)
• The continuously variable road sensing suspension module (CVRSS)
• The body control module (PZM)
• The integrated radio controller (IRC)
• The remote function actuator (RFA)
• The climate control panel (CCP)
• The cellular telephone (PHN)
System Functions
The body control module (PZM) performs the following functions:
• HVAC afterblow control
• Battery guard
• Door lock and unlock
• Fuel level
• Retained accessory power (RAP)
• Theft deterrent
• Exterior lighting control
• Interior lighting control
• Trunk release
• Time of day for the radio display
• Rear defogger
• Fuel door release
• Vehicle personalization
For more information about these functions refer to the appropriate sections.

Your probably have a lose connection somewhere , ground for the BCM or instrument cluster . Behind the dash or instrument cluster ! or other places . G-400 ,G205

The instrument cluster supplies the turn on signal for the alternator

DTC B1910 Generator L-Terminal Open Circuit
DTC B1911 Generator L-Terminal Problem
DTC B1981 Battery Voltage Low
The generator provides the voltage to operate the vehicle's electrical system and to charge the battery through CKT 1 (RED). When the ignition switch is placed in RUN, narrow width pulses on CKT 23 (GRY) are supplied by the powertrain control module (PCM) to the rotor, creating a weak magnetic field. When the engine is started, the regulator senses the generator rotation by detecting AC voltage at the stator through an internal wire. Once the engine is running, the regulator varies the field current by controlling the pulse width. This regulates the generator output voltage for proper battery charging and electrical system operation.
The PCM turns on the VOLT indicator via Class 2 serial data line CKTs 1807 (PPL) whenever undervoltage, overvoltage, or a stopped generator is detected on CKT 225 (RED).

When the ignition switch is placed in the RUN position, voltage is supplied to generator terminal L by the instrument cluster, turning on the regulator. The generator's voltage regulator controls current to the rotor, thereby controlling the output voltage. The rotor current is proportional to the electrical pulse width supplied by the regulator. When the engine is started, the regulator senses generator rotation by detecting AC voltage at the stator through an internal wire. Once the engine is running, the regulator varies the field current by controlling the pulse width. This operation regulates the generator output voltage for proper battery charging and electrical system operation. The generator F terminal is connected internally to the voltage regulator and externally to the PCM. The PCM monitors the field voltage on the generator F terminal.

It's more then likely just a lose connection somewhere . Could take half your vehicle apart to find it .

My first place to look would be here , G400
In the left rear of the passenger compartment, under the rear seat
BCM ground .
