Make this test and fix it. God bless you

This is the most common reason why your dishwasher is not drying. To check this remove the toe kick, remove one wire from heating element and check ohm reading. Compare the reading to the tech sheet or service manual. If it has no continuity at all replace the element. Make sure the element is getting power. To do this connect voltmeter to each lead of the heating element then select a dry cycle you should have 120 volts if not the problem is in the control. If it does have power and does not heat up replace the element. The heating element is easy to replace

Timer/ Control

This is not as common as the heater but can fail. To check this select a dry cycle and check to see if the heating element has power if it does not replace the control If the element does have power and does not heat up replace heating element.

96 ford taurus shifting into 2 cd gear at 6 mph and trying to nutrual out before going into 2cd cold,, after hot works perfectly

This is an area I do not work on. But maybe there is another thermal switch. The brain gets different thermal info from other parts. Some of the catalytic O2 sensors have heaters to shorten Wake-up time. The Mass airflow sensors sometimes use temperature to work. The Cold Start sequence may have an effect on upshifts.

Another possibility is an incorrect vacuum line routing since vacuum routing can be changed by a temperature sensitive thermal switch.

For that matter, maybe an old school vacuum meter would show you cold vacuum versus hot vacuum. Perhaps the engine is the problem. Some of the 6 cylinder engines had manifold runners in the intake to change porting. Would think vacuum levels could change dramatically if they were stuck.

Have you had the HVAC control panel checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ?

Air Temperature Sensors
The air temperature sensors are a 2-wire negative temperature co-efficient thermistor. The vehicle uses the following air temperature sensors:
• Ambient Air Temperature Sensor
• Inside Air Temperature Sensor Assembly
• Upper Left Air Temperature Sensor
• Upper Right Air Temperature Sensor
• Lower Left Air Temperature Sensor
• Lower Right Air Temperature Sensor
A signal and a low-reference circuit enables the sensor to operate. As the air temperature surrounding the sensor increases, the sensor resistance decreases. The sensor signal voltage decreases as the resistance decreases. The sensor operates within a temperature range between -40°C (-40°F) to 101°C (215°F). The sensor signal varies between 0-5 volts.
The input of the duct air temperature sensors are different from the ambient and inside sensors. The HVAC control module converts the signal to a range between 0-255 counts. As the air temperature increases the count value will decrease.

• DTC B0174 Output Air Temperature Sensor (Upper Left) Circuit Range/Performance
• DTC B0179 Output Air Temperature Sensor 2 (Lower Left) Circuit Range/Performance
• B0414 is for the left air temperature actuator.
B0408 is for the left air temperature actuator.
DTC B0989 Output Air Temperature Lower Sensors Correlation
The HVAC control module monitors the upper left and upper right duct temperature sensors when the mode switch is in the VENT or BI-LEVEL positions. The HVAC control module monitors the lower left and lower right duct temperature sensors when the mode switch is in the DEFOG, FLOOR or FRONT DEFROST positions. The duct sensors are used to measure the temperature of the air exiting the ducts to help maintain a consistent cabin air temperature. These duct sensor inputs provide the HVAC control module a way to determine if the engine needs to be started to maintain a specific air temperature. If an upper duct sensor circuit failure is detected the HVAC module will not request an engine start to help cool the cabin. A lower duct sensor circuit failure will not prevent the engine from starting.
DTC B0990 Output Air Temperature Upper Sensors Correlation
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

If you have a natural gas heater, make sure the gas is turned on. It won't work otherwise. I hope you warm up!

Temperature error

Remve the lid and check that all fans are plugged in and can turn freely, if not a fan may need to be replaced, also check all other plugs which may connect to a temperature sensor, ensure that the projector is free from dust it can easily be cleaned with compressed air, replace the cover and power up, if the probelm presists there is likely to be a problem with either the lamp or the logic board

Cooker not heating to rquired temperature

Your electronic control may be at fault. It receives a signal from the oven sensor probe tosence what the temperature is. The best way to rule out a possible bad oven sensor is to remove the 2 screws on the oven sensor (in the oven cavity) and pull gently on it until the wiring connector appears, then disconnect the plastic connector. Use your OHM meter to check resistance on the probe terminals. A probe at room temperature will register about 1040 to 1125 OHMs if good. If good, the electronics controlling the oven temperature would be the problem.

Code F3

The F3 has to do with the sensor, did you ohm out the last sensor? Check the new sensor and the harness that it connects to. F3 is cooling fan running with no funtions selected. The harness may be burnt or shorted. back.
