You have another circuit piggybackin on the dash lights, my guess is a bad ground to the parking or tail lights, try unplugging the tail lights and front marker lights. if the fuse satys good you have it

96 mustang gt ac blows fuse after 5 minutes. Replaced field coil. Jumped low pressure switch. Blows 10 amp fuse in 2 minutes, 15 amp fuse in 5 minutes


it sounds to me like a AC resistor issue i have a beemer that did that same thing to me and it turn out that it was my ac resistor it would burn out my 30 amp ac fuse in 2 to 3 minutes usually when the resistors in a circuit break they tend to burn out the fuses as a warning. easy way to find out is by putting in a new fuse and after a minute go touch the negative lead on you battery if the cable is really hot then there's a short in the circuit or in the case of your ac it would be a broken resistor.

I have a 1989 Ford Mustang 5.0 LX. The problem I am having is when I go to pop the hood, it won't. Any help is appreciated. Thanks


Sounds like the cable is bad. The one that runs underneath steering column to hood release. I had this same problem. You will need a length of flexible yet strong wire or cable and a light. Look in the front grill where the hood latch is. There should be a spot to loop wire over. You then pull left or right cannot remember now...but this should pop your hood. I had this same problem on my 89 an eventually went to a junk yard and got the whole cable from under dash to under hood and replaced it. Not to hard but a slight pain in the ****. Hope this helps!

1989 Ford Mustang no dash lights fuse blows when you go to high


I believe when you go to full brightness the dome light also turns on. If so check the dome light and door switches.

1989 mustang shuts off when hot


Sounds like fuel vapor lock. The fuel gets hot and changes from liquid to gas before entering the cylinders.
Look for metal fuel line bent and touching hot engine part, or no longer in its clamp. You might also insulate the fuel line with pipe insulation from Lowe's or Home Depot.

Dash Lights dont come on 89 camry


I would be looking at the dimmer switch for the dash illumination level. You may have a bad connection on the back of the switch, or the rheostat may have a dead spot.

I AM INSTALLING A TACHOMETER IN MY 89 MUSTANG GT AND I DONT KNOW WHICH WIRE TO USE ON THE DIMMER SWITCH FOR THE TACH LIGHT?


Grab a $5 12volt test light & probe back of switch where wiring comes into switch, for wire that has power when you pull lights on. If that's when you want it illuminated. If you want it too go bright or dim with dash , poke wires until you find that one, while turning switch to bright dim, and test light will do same.

89 ford mustang lx 2.3 starts but will cutt off after 20 second


Have the charging system check or take alternator off and have it check the *** might be bad. Listen for the full pump to pressureize the injectors. One big thing check the timing belt to make sure it has not jump time.
