Replace the switch on the ABS "motor". When that goes bad it will cause the ABS to run constantly.

1996 ford contour needs to be recalled. Dome lite and brake lites stay on when door is closed causing battery to drain prematurely.


If the experts told Dan to get rid of the car, then I am in total agreement !
I walked into a Ford garage a few years back to get some advice on a friend's Contour I was putting a timing belt on. I talked for a bit with a mechanic there, and it seemed all the ford mechanics there were pretty much in agreement that the Ford Contour was one poorly designed and executed product that they'd rather not see come in their shop. Expensive to repair and often made the owners mad from all the hassle.

Attend to one of the door switches for the dome light, and see if the brake switch on the brake pedal can be adjusted. IDK, do these models have a body control module? I hope not for your sake. (Trade it off!)

My moms 1999 ford contour just had the alternator replaced and now the car will start but wont stay running?


did you have the battery checked also? did you reconnect all wires to the alternator? sometimes there is an electrical connector that plugs into the alternator. If this is unplugged in the alternator will not charge the battery and car will die once battery is dead.

Pulsing lights, interior, dash, headlights....


If you have a aftermarket radio system I would double check that first,
If not I would check the wire harnesses in the engine compartment,
When you're on the gas the engine tweaks and puts stress on some of the harnesses, if there is a short in the wire harness it will drop the voltage, this will confuse the alternator's voltage regulator and cause it to kick on and off.

98 Ford Contour not charging


I dont know if yours is a 4 or 6 cyl. On the back of the motor by the firewall there is a 175 amp mega fuse inline on the positive cable comming from the battery. On the 4 cyl it is below the air box center of the back of the motor. On the 6 cyl, it is below the coil pack on the center back of the motor. Be sure to disconnect the negitave battery cable before you attempt this. There is a 3 inch long cover you pop off and you will see it. It takes a 10mm socket to unbolt it. Remove the fuse and ohm it out, if there is no continuity, you have a bad fuse, replace it. I have had 3 people replace their bats and alts ($350 in parts) just to find out it still had the problem. An $8 fuse. Good luck and hope this helps..
