I have a 99 Ford Expedition I was coming home and the battery light came on. Went to the part stor and put in a new battery,now my heater won't turn on and my light don't turn on and my gauges jump around....


This sounds more like a faulty alternator. Sometimes an alternator can still produce adequate voltage and amperage to keep everything running, but they are governed by a voltage regulator. If the regulator goes bad, the alternator may have little of no output, or it will not limit itself properly causing gauge problems, and various light on the dash to not work or sporadically come on.
I'd take the vehicle to have the alternator tested at least.
Don't settle for one of the part store tests, they won't give you all the information you will need. A properly working alternator should charge anywhere between 13-14.6 volts and depending on the vehicle 90-150 amps.
I hope this helps in some way

Why was the battery missing to begin with? I would start by checking all fuses under dash and Central hub. Check for burned in-line fuses,if any, coming off of battery cables.

WHERE DO I TURN ON/OFF DOME LIGHT


Check the dome light for a switch that has 3 positions on it. It could be set to always on. Also check the dash light dimmer switcher. That switch that makes your dashboard lights brighter and darker. If it is turned all the way up it has a position that turns the dome light on constant. It could be the other end of the switch so check that and make sure it is in the middle.

2001 chrysler voyager lost dash lights and heater panel lights what would cause this they just all quit at once can't seem to find no blowed fuses and 4 way flashers still work


Your battery terminals are not tight enough. If the leads on top of your battery are just a little loose, then you loose your dash lights and gauges. They come right back when you tighten your battery terminals.

The radio/clock dash light on my 2004 matrix are out! ...solution?


The 15 amp dome fuse is in the fuse box under the hood and the 15 amp CIG fuse is in the lower finish panel up under the dash on the drivers side. These are needed for the radio. The above fuses plus the 15 amp Gauge fuse in the box with the dome fuse under the hood are needed for the clock.

I also have clock removal instructions at my website www.autoclockrepair.com

1999 Mercury Sable Dome Light won't shut off


Check the dash light dimmer switch. Perhaps it's set to have the interior lights on, when you turn the dash lights all the way bright, turning it a little more turns the interior lights on. Let us know how you make out.
