Question about 1997 Ford Taurus

1997 Ford Taurus Ghia

After having the engine out to fix a fault in the gearbox, the "service engine soon" light stays on. How do you switch it off? The car is going well, there is nothing wrong, all I wish to do is to switch the light off!

I am by no means a mechanic, but my car is in the same state at the moment. My car runs good and everything is working fine. The only way to find out what is wrong is to have it hooked up to a diagnostic machine. It costs about $100 dollars at the mechanic. Probrobly a sensor that may need to be replaced. Mine is a failure in the Cam sensor connection.

I change my transmission in 1997 honda civic freio I change the cvt to a manual transmission andengine check light stay on what could cause that to happen


Check engine lights report faults in engine AND gear box(auto). If you have changed from an auto to manual gear box then the sensor system for the gearbox is recording a massive fault with the gearbox that you have to check out. Talk wit an accredited auto electrician as to how to neutralise the system so that the light only checks out the engine.

I have a 01 ford taurus whit p0705 transmission code and i have no idea what this mean


Code P0705 - Transmisson Range Sensor Circuit (PRNDL Input)
The transmission range switch detects the selector lever position and sends a signal to the TCM.

The park/neutral position (PNP) switch includes a transmission range switch. The transmission range switch detects the selector lever position when the shift lever is in the N or P shift position and sends a signal to the Transmission Control Module (TCM).

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

Possible causes
- Open or short park/neutral position switch circuit
- Poor park/neutral position switch circuit connection
- Misadjusted park/neutral position switch
- Park/neutral position switch may be faulty

Service Engine Soon light reset.


The Service Engine Soon light comes only when the engine computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, it is not related to the oil change, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Transmission and Service Engine Soon light


it might be your vehicle speed sensor. It affects your speedometer, your cruise control and your trans shift points. Also, your throttle position sensor (TPS) affects shift points.

Assuming the plugs and wires have been changed. I would look at the bottom of the coil pack. They tend to crack and short out.

Or if it's got coil packs they will also crack and short out.
