20 Most Recent 2000 Ford Crown Victoria Questions & Answers

My advise is to get it checked out. Depending how many miles on the brakes something could be falling apart. If it's serious it could cost you big money if you just keep driving it. I saw at one time a wheel fell off because the bolts had broken off. Better be safe than sorry.

unless the pressure control switch is connect to the ignition to shut down the engine in the event of oil failure--no
Talk with a dealer about a safety system and it it doesn't have one then you may have a major failure

Hey Grady..
There are few things that could cause the water intrusion... Is the carpet in the front floorboard wet?.. ..Has it rained recently? This will rule out window seals leaking? Have you opened the trunk and checked to see if water is in the trunk? OK..IF it has not rained, no water in the trunk, AND the front floorboards are wet, then the heater core is leaking...

Grady.. sounds like its either the window seals or the door seals.. check for damaged door seals, cracked window seals..

Security is set. Takes a scanner to read the codes, Not a code reader. Fords most times have to go to the dealer to have the security program reset. I can diagnose it. Fix it if it's a bad wire or receiver. Anything else has to go to Ford for reprogramming. It takes two keys to reprogram. It will easily get up to $400+ to fix.

Hello hfdtjvdghvg c,

You ought purchase volume 3 (electrical) of FORD'S factory workshop repair manual...

Failing all that...

It is HIGHLY LIKELY you drawing are available for FREE at BBB Industries site bbbind.com
(below, registration required (proprietary information)).

If you check those drawings... you should be able to take a simple VOM (Volt Ohm Meter) and quickly run through EVERY FUSE
in your dash-light-DESTINATION...
and their subsequent grounds...

Without the "parking lights" issue, I would immediately be pointing at the DASH LIGHT DIMMER switch/control...

ELSE run thru all your fuses

The "TOPS" of your fuses each have metallic test points the check if the fuse has operated ("BLOWN")...

Hope this helps

If the lamp is good, then the door switch, is not

Try the passenger door to see if that works

Also most vehicles will have a delayed acc relay to keep
the radio on when the key is turned off & when you open
either front door it will go off, if the switches are good,as
well as turn on the dome light

It sounds like you might have a bad headlight switch. I've seen alot of them go bad. I would check the headlight fuses.

Need more information as in how long after starting the engine does it indicating hot, can you see steam venting from the radiator or hear water boiling, are all visible v-belts in place, is the engine running smoothly or not, when was it last serviced - timing can be out, is there anti freeze in the radiator water and if so in the correct ratio. More info please.

It is located in the tailshaft housing of the transmission. You simply unbolt the retainer, un-plug the wires, and pop out the old sensor. Stick the new one in, bolt down the retainer, and plug in the new one.

Check your timing and fuel pressure. Either one of these could be causing the problem.

Wow, this is a broad question and I side with your mechanic on this one. I think a sensor is shot. There are a couple of sensors involved with your car's performance. They, in turn, interact with other sensors so that everything operates in unison. In others words, if this sensor, you can call it the kick-down sensor, if you want to, isn't reading the proper positional information from your throttle -- starting about 1998 Ford was using a great many electronic circuits and sensors for performance, rather than just mechanical systems -- then it isn't telling the ECU (electronic control unit or the vehicles "brain") the proper information. In turn, the ECU can't order other systems to fire or work in the proper sequence.

Given all of this, it is little wonder that your Crown Vic isn't performing well.

I would suggest having this range of sensors looked at, the Mass Air Sensor, the Idle Air Bypass Sensor, the Throttle Positioner Sensors and the like. Granted, some of these sensors (Mass Air and Idle Bypass) are more for idle and low-speed performance, but you just can't tell when one or more of them may fail and interact with other sensors in the change. I think the most likely candidate of the bunch is the Throttle Positioner. If the ECU isn't reading throttle position correctly then performance will suffer.

One other possibility -- and this is a thought -- is to have the EVP sensor checked as well, though this one is more involved with emissions than other things. Still, it could affect your Crown Vic's performance.
