Somthing doesnt sound right here, someone must of installed a bigger fuse than whats called for, i would have the system checked to see why its drawing so much amperage, you will need to remove the fusebox and chase that wire, you want the ac side of the wire not the hot side, if you are reusing the power wire then okay chase them both, but you will need to chase them into box, use an ohm meter with a continuty test on it to locate the right wires,okay i just found a wiring diagram, the fuse is on the driverside fuse box , okay the wire you are looking for is violet/purple and this is for fuse location #37 which holds a 30amp fuse,the other wire is a power wire and should be red,note there are a lot of hot red wire so try to use the same one by chasing it.

How to attach 6 red wires on 1998 ford contour

The biggest diameter wire goes to biggest fuse. All the wires to the fuse box are the same. Doesn't matter which goes where. The alternator wire goes to the side of the panel. 175 amp fuse.

I have a 98 Ford contour and NONE of my back

Most likely you have a open circuit. A short would blow the fuse and then no back up lights would work. Check for corrosion in the bulb socket. The bulb could be loose in its socket too.

My car won't start so I need to know how to bypass the neutral safety switch in my 2002 Hyundai accent gl

These instructions are gor the 99 accent GSI. The steps should be much the same. ensure these instructions make sens to you before continuing. Keep in mind that you have now bypassed one of the safety features of the vehicle and it will now start in any gear. This can be left as a permanent fix. However it is my advice that this is used as a temporary solution to get you out of a bind and a proper switch should be installed as soon as one can be located and the cost covered!

Neutral safety switch bypass!
The cost of the switch and labor to replace with OEM parts is the mane reason for this work around. This is meant to be a temporary fix untill the propper swith can be replaced! The oem switch alone with no labour is $ 167.00 canadian funds.

Very limited tools or knowledge needed!
Material Needed
One 12 volt momentary switch, about 10 feet of 16 gauge wire, one inline fuse and a few crimp on wire ends. Total cost not more then $27.00 Canadian funds.
1. Remove air box for easy access
2. locate starter motor follow smaller of the 2 wires up to the under hood fuse box. ( black with white stripe)
3. Remove about .5 inch of the rubber shielding of the black and white wire
4. Attach 1 half of the 16 gauge wire to the now exposed wire.( for better connection solder if possible)
5. Attach other half of the 16 guage wire to constant 12 volt source. Place the inline fuse in this wire.
6. Route both of the newly attached wires threw the fire wall into the drivers compartment.
7. Locate a place to drill and place the switch. I used one of the blanks in the panel with interior light dimmer switch.
8. Connect your switch to the two wires and mount.

You are done.

Where is thecigarette lighter fuse box diagram for 1999 ford contour?

Yea, that's a good one. The trick is finding the button that lowers the fuse panel so you can get to it. It is located under the steering wheel to the left. The cigarette lighter is fuse number 27 or there is a diagram sticker on the fuse box.

If you can see under the instrument panel, find the fuse box, find the button on the side nearest the brake pedal. Push the button straight up and the fuse panel will magically lower into view. There may be a wire loom (bunch of wires) covering the button.

Need to know inside fuse panel for 99 contour 2liter diagram of what fuse is for what

The Owner's Manual has a diagram in it. If you don't have that, then a repair manual (a Chilton's or similar will do fine) has it, too. Most dealerships can print out a fuse panel diagram for you, or you can do a Web search for "1999 Contour fuse panel diagram" and you will find a number of them.

normally it is under the dash on the driverside and one under the hood on the driverside near the front of the car also if you have an aftermarket radio there maybe an inline fuse you have to look for too and these wires are normally behind the radio
