Question about 1996 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

Is it fauly wiring or is there a bad relay somewhere I should change...?

When I first turn on the car everything works, then I lose the radio's sound, then I lose the power windows, and the power steering comes and goes when it wants to as well.

The power steering fluid is full.
Never had a problem like this before, please help! =/

Hi you need to find the common denominator with all these problems as the only circuit that would control the problems remotley is your grounding system or a multi-plug connector where all these wires would join another loom loose connectors bad grounds and see exatly what you are doing when it occurs no matter how daft it may seem yates210456

89 ford bronco 2 rear abs sensor light on and no power to radio fuses are good can anyone help also fuses for turn signal has been blowing Does anyone have a fuse box diagram

sounds like you have a hot ground somewhere. Check the wires for everything that doesn't work and make sure there are no bad spots where the power side is cut/damaged and grounding out.
The abs could have nothing to do with it, but either a bad connection/cut wire, or bad sensor.

Hello, my 1996 chevrolet lumina is overheating. but, when it does the coolant, which is checked frequently, and at proper levels, fills up into the overflow tank and begins to boil. had thought that this...

first thing you gotta do is get the cooling fans working and make sure you have the right amount of antifreeze in the coolant,as for the battery charge it and clean the terminals carefully, you need to do at least that much to proceed with more diagnosis

Yaris radio - sound stopped coming from speakers

I had the exact same issue with my 2007 Yaris. I took the radio out and checked all the connections- (all Good) then traced the wires through out untill I reached the trunk. I had a bunch of stuff in the trunk that had some how hit the speaker connections and bent the connections on one of the speakers. I removed all the stuff from the trunk and re-solder the connections. After that the speakers kicked back on for the entire car.
Check the trunk - if you have it loaded with junk like I did, this may be the cause of your speaker failure.
Good Luck!

1996 nissan maxima car won't start unless you push it. I went to autozone to test battery they said it was fine. He said it was the starter. now when I am driving the radio will go off and along with that...

Sounds like a bad wire somewhere. I dont know with your particular vehicle, but some vechiles wiring leads into eachother for alot of things. If a wire is being grounded out this could cause the loss of the electrical units connected on the wire. Just a guess, but I would check with a mechanic to find out if there are electronics in your vehicle that work off of eachother. Explain what things come off and on when you lose the power to what you listed. You use the word random, so my guess would most likely be a wire being grounded out somewhere to cause this. Hope this helps!!

2004 jeep liberty electrical problems maybe

you have a short somewhere in the cigarette lighter. Most likely the socket itself, but possibly behind the dash somewhere. The radios in the Jeeps ****, and most likely just a bad radio. The door lock either has a bad actuator, or bad wiring in the door jamb. Remove the panel and see if you are getting power to the actuator. If so, you need it, if not check the wiring.

Radio shuts off

yes there is a fuse in the fuse panel drivers side up where the dash meets the door panel. sounds like you have a bad connection in either the red wire(switched +12 volt) going to the stereo or the yellow wire (unswitched +12 volt) or in the ground wire which is black it need a good constant connection on all three to operate correctly. you can temporarily try running a wire directly to the battery and hooking yellow and red wires to the + and the black to the - and see if the problem goes away if it does you have a wire that is losing its connection somewhere in your car
