You have two wiring harnesses under that panel. You can lift it up from the front side with your fingers and check to make sure both plugs are in place. This should get it back working again. Just lift straight up in the front of panel and it holds in on the back side with plastic clips securely. It only snaps in on the front side but can be lifted up.

Changed all vacuum lines including air intake hose truck still dies when temp at mid range with ac off. with ac on truck runs just barely should i kick up the idle and how do you do that ???

try by changing the coolant tempurature sensor. When this sensor malfunctions the symptoms range from poor engine performance to diminished fuel economy and engine shutdown. this sensor sends vital engine tempurature to computer,on most vehicles the check engine light will be on.

Hi its Bill here again, about the Ford '99 Longreach ute 4.0 ltr Where exactly is the cold start temp sensor? is it the two pronged plug in thing about 2" under the thermostat?..and how would that...

The cold start temp sensor is same as ambient air sensor, tells the computer to give the engine a certain amount of fuel to start since there isn't a choke per se. There are two temp sensors, the air temp sensor and the water temperature sending unit usually near the thermostat. The cold start doesn't affect fuel economy unless it's telling the computer the engine is cold. The computer reads several sensors to meter the fuel, map sensor which works off intake manifold pressure (check rubber hose for cracks that connects it), throttle position sensor which is the main fuel control (test it with an ohm meter) and oxygen sensors. The main culprits for bad fuel mileage are usually a partially stopped up catalytic convertor and bad oxygen sensor(s). You can sometimes remove a O2 sensor and spray it with carb cleaner , lightly brush the carbon off with a wire brush to get it working again. This fuel with alcohol is rough on all vehicles. Hope some of this helps.

High fuel cosumption

Bad fuel economy is related to certain problems that you can repair.The air filter is the first thing.then you should perform a regular tune up.Spark plugs wires cap and rotor then you should replace you two 02 sensors.This will increase your fuel economy allot.Another item is your mass air flow sensor located on the throttle body.This tells the computer how much fuel to inject into your motor.

Hey, was wondering what the message center display symbols and what they mean, lost my manual

There are five trip computer displays which may be stepped through by pushing the MODE button. The information will appear in the following order:

D AVG ECON (Average Fuel Economy): This shows the average fuel economy since the last reset.

D INST ECON (Instantaneous Fuel Economy): This shows fuel economy for the most recent second of driving.

D RANGE (Trip Range): This shows the estimated distance that can be traveled with the remaining fuel. The fuel economy used to calculate range is based on the last few hours of driving. When in a low fuel condition, LO is displayed.

D FUEL USED (Trip Fuel Used): This shows the accumulated fuel used since the last reset.

D AVG SPEED (Average Speed): This shows the average speed since the last reset.

1994 VOLVO 850 green triangle

that indicator is for the lambda sensor, that reverse check mark thing is the greek letter lambda. lambda sensor is another name for the oxygen sensor. it is part of how the engine computer manages emissions and it also contributes to fuel economy. if it becomes defective and is not replaced the system may eventually foul your catalytic converter. hope that helps
