SOURCE: gas, spedometer, odometer guage not working

Sounds like you have a universal failure of your instrument panel circuits. The Speedo and odometers run off a cable that goes down into your tranny, not electrical.

Pull each fuse out one at a time, test each for continuity, clean the blades with an eraser and reseat, then go to the next one. Tighten all the ground cables you can find, starting from inside, then the firewall, engine block, battery, etc. This should fix it unless you have an open in the instrument circuit. A short will blow the fuse involved so that will be obvious. Just replace the blown fuse with the SAME VALUE- DO NOT USE A HIGHER AMP FUSE! If you have a blown fuse, hopefully you'll be lucky and it won't blow again.

I say check each fuse because sometimes instrument circuits are shared with others and not obvious which fuse is the one. And if one fuse is not making good contact, then others are likely to be on their way. If it is a short it will work momentarily until the fuse blows- thats why they're in there- to protect the circuit.

If you have a short you will have to track it. Take the blown fuse out and run your tests on your wires- most. Sometimes those little instrument lights get a bad connection- glazed contacts & sometimes they act as sub-fuses as well, so it can get complicated. This is my generic solution for most vehicles.
Good luck hope this helps.

SOURCE: No SHift out of park

switch behind the brake pedal?? This send the signal for your brake lights and also activates the interlock to shift out of park.

SOURCE: odometer,spedometer,radio

My nephew has a 96 taurus also when his radio went out he noticed that his speedometer was not working as well so we check the fuses under the dashboard and found that a fuse from the radio memory was blown . We replaced it and the radio and speedometer and the odometer worked fine

My 1997 Ford F-350 truck won't shift from park to drive, and 'ABC' is lit up in yellow on the dashboard. What does 'ABC' mean on the dashboard of a ford f350?


I have never heard of a ABC light on any ford truck what I think you mean is the ABS. To repair the ABS light you need a diagnostic computer to pull the code find the sensor that is bad and replace it. More than likley it is one of the speed sensors on the wheels, you have one for each wheel. That will fix the ABS light now not able to shift it out of park, they utilize a cable on the shifter. The cable itself may be frozen so bad to the point where it wont shift at all. What I would do to varify that is first block wheels so the truck wont roll, unhook cable down at transmission than see if still wont shift or is very difficult to shift, if so replace cable and you should be all set.

Abs has caused brake lights to fail


Check the wires going to the stoplight switch on the brake pedal. If one of them is broken (gray wire or green wire) it can cause this problem. Or it may be the stoplight switch itself. Let me know what you find.

the neutral safety switch is on the transmission where the gear shift cable hooks to it, and I feel like it is out of adjustment and is the cause of your problem.

Brake light and ABS light is on and the speedometer, odometer and tripometer are inoperable


replace the left front wheel hub assy. with 4 wheel abs. The spedometer works off of the left front wheel sensor. It will fix the abs/brake light and the spedometer will start working
