Why can't i read the information screen during the day in my 2005 mercury monterey van


I am fighting this problem right know actually.
There are some you tube videos which talk about a resistor or other small component which tends to loosen or corrode over time.
What the guy speaks of and shows makes sense, but I just haven't had the time to go through with everything.
I have pulled the instrument cluster out a few times, it isn't bad, but does require everything to be done in a specific order. For know you might be able to temporarily fix the problem by smacking the top of the dash above the cluster though.

Heat in my 1994 Mercury Grand marquis stopped working abruptley. What should I be checking for? Core not clogged or leaking.


sudden failures are usually the blend door actuator. Unfortunately, you have to remove the dash to get the actuator out. It sits on top of the heater box in the second picture below. I have pasted the procedure below from autozone.com. Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6235876-no_heat_fan_blowing_cold_air . If you get stuck, please get back to me, and thanks for using FixYa.

Where is the fuse box located on 1999 mercury mountaineer


Hi, far left side of dash. Must open Driver's door to access the panel which simply pops off.
You can also view the Owner Guide online (which includes the fuse box diagram) at www.motorcraftservice.com

The LED Dash Control Center on my 2005 Mercury Monterey will go from being bright and readable to dim and recently completely off. It is not affected by the dash light dimmer control switch, but does...


when the headlights or parking lights are on,the readouts will automatically dim to compensate for night driving. that aside, the dimmer switch is could be bad or the wiring has become loose or disconnected or the connector on the readout is loose or has become disconnected. my odometer was randomly going on and off. and tured out to be a loose connector

Reset button on instrument panel is now broken, won't reset trip meter, mileage, etc..


You have three options here.... None of which you will like. Option A: remove the dash and the instrument panel and attempt to replace the entire unit yourself. ( PAIN IN THE **** ).

Option B: Pay service shop to do aformentioned repair ( labor + Part = most likely going to cost a minimum of 200 dollars ranging all the way to 400).

Option C: Live without it. Your going to come off some money with this one. Getting an odometer system replaced can be very very expensive. If your system is Digital you might actually save some money as far as labor is concerned.
