I would buy the best battery I could find, and the largest CCA Rating for your car. At least 700 CCA's or more
Probably be the most expensive
Only three companies make batteries,sold under different names. Johnson Controls,Exide and Delphi

How do I rest the Service indicator for a 2005 CLK Cabriolet? None of the suggestions listed below worked for me.

First make sure all of the doors, hood, trunk, etc are closed.
Turn the key to position 1
Press system select button(lower left buttons on the steering wheel) that looks like sheets of paper until you see mileage reading or temperature displayed.

Press the brightness button on the lower left instrument cluster 3 times. You should hear a signal and see voltage on the display.

Turn the key to position 2

Press the lower scroll forward/back button(steering left arrows)). You should see "service indicator" on the screen

Press the Brightness button again once. You should see oil type on the screen.

Select the oil grade you used by pressing the + & - buttons on the upper right on the steering wheel.

Press the scroll forward/backward button to confirm. Confirm oil reset, press R(brightness button on lower left on cluster) for 3 seconds should appear on the display.

Service confirmed should appear on the display.

Press the upper forward/backward button & "service indicator" appears on the display.

Press the upper system select button(lower left steering wheel button on left) The display should go back to basic mileage or temperature.

If all else fails. I believe the shortcut I took as a tech was, turn the key to the first position, scroll until you see the temperature or mileage displayed. Turn the key off, push in the brightness button and HOLD it while turning the key to the 2nd position. You should see something like do you want to reset service? press R(brightness) button for 3 seconds and it should reset.

Good luck. The newer cars are worse.

Tune-ups left 25 years ago

Only spark plugs left

I think common sense tells you
your money was not well spent
& those issues were put in there

No one can tell you all the what if's

You have to test a vehicle to answer that

If this doesnt work theres a reset tool you can buy at most auto part stores $25-$40
    • 1 Turn your key to position 2 to power on the battery or turn the key all the way to start the engine on. Either option will allow you to reset the service indicator.

    • 4 Press the trip odometer reset button on the left side of the instrument panel for three seconds until the menu asks, "Do you want to reset the service interval? Confirm with the R-button."

What mileage do you replace serpentine or time chain belts.

Your replace the serpentine belt when it is worn, cracked, or appears to need replacing. It should easily last 100,000 miles. The 2002 Taurus has a timing chain and not a belt which will last the life of the engine.

Looking for fuse box on 1998 ford windstar

Fuse panel is located behind the instrument panel to the left of the steering column. There is also a fuse panel located on the left side of the engine compartment. Fuses #25 and #27 on the interior fuse panel are both associated with the turn signals.
I hope this helps you!

1998 Contour turn signal problem

Check the plugs on the back lights. There must be a bad ground. Remove the light from the socket in the rear light, then depress the metal wire that holds the plug onto the light receptacle. Clean the contacts and ensure they are free from corrosion and rust. Try putting some dieelectric grease on the contacts. NOTE: The center wire BLACK is ground, and you could splice a wire from it to the metal of the car via one of the screws, on both sides, if after cleaning both sides they still dont work.
