Question about 1998 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

My gauges have all stopped working. I don't know how fast I am going. Also, I never know how much gas is in the car. What can I do to fix this? My mechanic says I have several shorts in the car, but he did not have the proper paperwork to know how to fix it. Can this be fixed by my husband, or do I have to take it to a ford dealer who will probably charge me more?

You don`t have to take it to the dealer for this work.just find a shop that has a good reputation for electrical work and have them repair it.you don`t say if the tech checked the fuses as this dash is controlled by electrics.I would not suggest your husband try to ix it as in the end it could cost you far more to have it repaired properly.no offense to your husband, as electrical work is not easy if you don`t understand wiring.

You can not use a vehicle with the gas cap off
& evap system open. Don't even try that stuff

Study OBD2 Systems on the internet

You need to stop with all the waiting & just explain
it all to a repair shop & get each issue taken care of.

If I had a vehicle that bulbs kept having an issue, i would
stop using it, before I got run into or a ticket & fix it

You could have alternator problems as well as
a failing fuel pump

Open your hood and look for the fuse and relay center just above the battery . open the cover and look for a fuse called IOD usually towards the top of the block , they are labeled . Remove the IOD fuse for 20 seconds and then reinsert . The BCM becomes hung and this will reset it in a lot of cases . Let us know how it works out Tim

The gas gauge is not registering when gas is put in the van


I don`t know this particular car but I don`t think the dissy has anything to do with the fuel gauge. Did the fuel gauge work perfectly before?? If so, you`ll probably find that you`ve disturbed a connector which goes to the sender unit. It`s very easy to do, I`ve done it myself and it`s VERY annoying to find you`ve sorted one fault only to find that you`ve caused another fault. Just go over everything that you`ve touched and done to the car. Did you short something out when you were replacing the cap, if so, you`ll probably find that a fuse has failed and it`s not just the gauge that doesn`t work. All the best, Ian

We use a magnet wrapped in a soft cloth [so as not to scratch the dash] to turn the needle completely around again. No special tool needed
