4 Codes in computer


code p0128 indicates a mechanical fault ( could be the thermostat stuck open)
code p0174 -system too lean -bank2 ===causes --intake /exhaust leak--fuel pressure/pump--injectors--AIR system--hose connection/s
code po171 refers to system too lean bank 1 same as po174 with the HO2S sensor being the culprit. As to all being related . only by way of the o2 sensors
code p0442 is not connected to the first 3 as it is in a different section of the fuel system

How to fix ford contour code p0708


this code indicates a problem with the transmission range selected switch, this switch is on the transmission case where the shift cable attaches, when u select a gear it sends a signal to the computer control that u want lets say Reverse by sensing the range selector switch feedback, replace the switch will most likely cure the code, then clear the code and drive a few miles.

My cadillac deville has the following engine codes when hooed up: P0106, P0121, P0171, P0174, P0335, P0340, P0385, P0442, P0506, P0506, P0507, P0601.


click on the below links for code details.
P0106

P0121

P0171

P0174


P0335


P0340

P0385

P0442

P0506

P0507

P0601.

all of the above codes seem to have a common cause, they all list a bad ecm (computer) as being a cause, and the last code P0601 points specifically to a bad computer. sorry for the bad news, hope this helps.

My car keeps cutting out and has died a couple of times. now when i go to put it in drive it sometimes grinds or it will just sit there and the o/d off light flashes. i've changed the fuel filter.


transmission range sensor at Ford!! called safety neutral switch at auto parts stores and is the same thing... The check engine light finally came on on mine, after cutting out intermittently for a while; the code was P0708... Mine is a '98 Contour and from what I see is in a similar place...to the left of the battery sitting on top of the transmission with a wire plugging into it. The generic "safety neutral switch" looks a little different in that it is not as much as a "diamond shape" as the original Ford part... but other than that the rest looks the same. I've read on other sites about the O/D light flashing with this problem, too, sometimes.

Code 0708 in Ford Contour 1997


Trouble code P0708 means:Transmission range sensor circuit high input .
Other words the "neutral safety switch". it may have gone bad or the wire harness is damaged. It's mounted on top of the transmission where the gear selector cable connects to the transmission. Good luck and hope this helps.
