Most like you need to check the 'U' shaped core in the pickup if it is broke no flash.
If this is not the problem then you need to open the unit get a coated wire stripped ends 0.5 inches. there is a large yellow capacitor. Short this out first! Mostly this cap has a problem with loosening the solder joint(s) so check this first. The next area would be the flashtube area. Check the diodes and there is a trigger transformer. The phone number is 800-627-5655 Chris and Evy run the repair dept.

You need to find out the fault code that is stored that is causing the check engine light, the whole thing may be related to one failed part like the temperature sensor or the wiring to it.

Where are the timing marks on ford ascape 2001 v6 3.0


On the crankshaft:

Timing Lights There are two basic kinds of timing lights--DC powered timing lights, which operate from your vehicle's battery, and AC powered timing lights, which operate on 110 volt house current. Of the two, the DC light is preferable because it produces more light to see the timing marks in bright daylight. Regardless of what kind is used, the light normally connects in series with the No. 1 spark plug using an adapter. Models that are more expensive sometimes use an inductive pickup, which simply clamps around the plug wire and senses firing impulses. Inexpensive models use alligator clips; one clamps onto the connection between the plug and the plug wire, and the others clamp onto the vehicle battery terminals. NOTE: Some timing lights will not work on electronic ignition systems, so unless you still own a vehicle equipped with points, check to make sure the timing light you buy will work. The biggest problem you will probably have when using a timing light is trying to see the timing marks on the crankshaft pulley. Before you time the engine, mark the appropriate timing indicators with fluorescent paint or chalk. Stay out of direct sunlight when you time the engine and buy a timing light with a xenon light, not a neon light. Timing lights that use a xenon tube provide a much brighter flash than those that use a neon tube do. Fig. 1: A modern electronic timing light. Note the inductive pick-up clamp. 88521p22.jpg

98 Ford Explorer Brake lights not working,top brake light does


I had a similar problem like this with my 98 explorer once; neither brake lights worked and the top one stayed on very dimly at all times. It turns out both of my brake lights went bad at exactly the same time, which for some reason made the top light stay on. Felt like an idiot, but all I needed to do was change the bulbs.
