My mph, gas, and temp gauges are not working


That's why you don't let you husband work on your car ! Unless he does it for a living .. For MPH there is a VSS - vehicle speed sensor , for the gas there is a sending unit in the fuel tank, for the temp. gauge there is a temp. sensor located in coolant stream on the engine .You more then likely need to have you instrument cluster repaired . GM had a problem with step motors inside the instrument cluster . A step motor is what controls the individual gauge. The sensors are all inputs to the PCM - powertrain control module (engine computer ) .
Engine Coolant Temperature Gage
The IPC displays the engine coolant temperature as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine coolant temperature. The engine coolant temperature gage defaults to C or below if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine coolant temperature sensor circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

Fuel Gage
The IPC displays the fuel level as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the fuel level percent. The fuel gage defaults to empty if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the fuel level sensor circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

When the fuel level is less than 14% (84ohms), the low fuel indicator illuminates.
Odometer
The IPC contains a season odometer and a trip odometer. Momentarily press the trip select/reset switch in order to toggle between the season odometer and the trip odometer. Press the trip select/reset switch for greater than 1.5 seconds, while the trip odometer is displayed, in order to reset the trip odometer. The IPC displays the vehicle mileage and trip mileage as determined by the IPC. The IPC calculates the mileage based on the vehicle speed information from the PCM. The odometer will display 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected.
PRNDL Display
The IPC displays the selected gear position as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the gear position. The PRNDL display shall flash all gear positions if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the transmission range switch circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

Speedometer
The IPC displays the vehicle speed based on the information from the PCM. The PCM converts the data from the vehicle speed sensor to a 4000 pulses per mile signal. The IPC uses the vehicle speed signal circuit from the PCM in order to calculate the vehicle speed. The speedometer defaults to 0 mph (0 kph) if a malfunction in the vehicle speed sensor circuit exists.
Tachometer
The IPC displays the engine speed as determined by the PCM. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine speed. The tachometer will default to 0 rpm if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine speed sensor circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

How to turn off the maintance required light


Turn the key to the on position,but do not start it. Make sure the odometer is set to the actual mileage and not the trip mileage.
Now turn the key back to the off position then press and hold the trip mileage reset button. While still holding the trip reset button down, turn the key to the on position. Continue holding the trip mileage reset button while the mileage flashes rows of zeros until the actual mileage appears again. Release the button and that should reset your maintenance light.
Hope this helps but if not please let me know.
If it does please give a rating thanks and good luck.

Maintenance required light is on


Turn the key ON, but don't start it, and make sure the odometer is showing the actual mileage, not trip A or B. Turn the key back to the OFF position, then press and hold the trip/reset button. Continue to hold it down and turn the key to the on position. Continue holding the trip/reset button while the mileage flashes rows of zeros until the actual mileage appears again. Release the button, because you are finished.

Good luck (remember comment and rated this).

No radio and time & trip reset when car is off. After jump


We already know that's not a good idea. It causes havoc blowing as many fuses (which is better) and a real expensive disaster to the ones that were not fuse protected. Your alternator could be malfunctioning from this event and also consider solid state components be in a blown or fried state. Using a simple VOM will test for continuity of fuses and tell you if it's no good and replace the fuse. You've caused a disaster just by x-ing pollarity and by guestimating without the simpliest correct tools you will cause another which will burn a bigger hole in your wallet. The radio code is needed to unlock your radio. It is supplied in your radio owners manual and in a key tag attached to all your keys. For your instrument cluster I would think it's fried inside, rarely it could only be replacing the nicad battery that stores data for mileage info.

1990 Crown Vic LX Odometer does not work


I think the speedo head is probably good. You need to check the speedo cable and the gear at the end of the cable housing. If the gear is cupped in the center it is worn out. Replace the gear by the color code at your local Ford dealer. The other scenario would be that the gear on the output shaft is worn also. This would require the tailshaft be removed from the tranny and the nylon gear replaced on the output shaft. Good luck.

Maintenence light


I get many calls a week for this procedure...
This is really easy! Follow these directions:

Turn the key ON

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "ODO" and the total mileage traveled. If it is on "Trip A" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "ODO", and the total miles traveled.

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it in.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON; do not start the car.

Observe the Odometer display. The total mileage traveled will disappear, and you will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, the total mileage traveled will redisplay.

Release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change.

Hope this helps!
