Heated & cooled seats staying on while car is off and keys are out. The radio also stays on, I noticed the driverside window controls are not working either. The nav maps also read an error


This sounds like a computer glitch. Cars are becoming more computerised and as well as Engine Control Modules, there are body controller computers as well.

This might fix it, and is probably worth a try. Disconnect your battery for a couple of hours. This should reset all the computers. If that doesn't work, you need a dealership who have the software to interrogate the vehicle electrics.

1986 bronco left taillight


If you are not getting power from the headlight switch for that circuit, but the other side works, you'll have to trace the wiring. The socket has two wires plus a ground. One wire is for the tail lamp circuit and the other is for brake-turn signal.

1986 Thunderbird, cd player keeps cutting off. Is this power problem?


No that sounds like the player is just old and most likely needs the tiny drive belts replaced.

Chrysler Fifth Avenue 1986 fuse problem


It will most likely be the motors in your windows. My driver front and back right window won't go down either. Your AC and Heat your switches might have just worn out in the whole container. I'd go to a mechanic and check that out. Hope this helps!? Sorry I can't be of more assistance.

Replace canister purge valve- 1996 thunderbird 3.8


Hi,

Why do you want to replace the charcoal purge canister? Are you smelling fuel vapor under the hood?

On a 1986 (this is posted on the 1986 forum), it is held on by a screw (possibly a rivet).

In my opinion, I'd leave the vapor canister alone. If you really want to spend $50 on something, buy new seat covers.
