remove the interior door trim and replace the small connection from the outside door handle to the lock. It is held in place by a plastic clip that breaks on a regular basis.

Check the ignition module (usually mounted on the firewall or on top of wheel well, looks like an aluminum heat sink). Fords are notorious for this problem.

You will need to disconnect the battery cable...doing this in a dark area is helpful, but while doing this watch for spark. Touch the terminal to the battery a couple of times to determine the spark. If you see a spark, you have a drain. Now, you will have to go to your fuse panel and start unplugging one fuse at a time while repeating the process at the battery until the spark stops. After, you find out which fuse is causing the drain, you will now have to look on the panel or Shop electrical manual and see what this fuse supplies and now start disconnecting the devices that are on that circuit until you have found that source of your problem. It may take a while to eliminate the device, so you might want to just unplug the fuse that you found at fault every night until you encounter the correct componet.

First I need a little more info. Outsde of where. From under the engine or under the coolant tank

not sure what problem you are having. When you first crank the car the thermostat will be closed preventing fluid flow that you would normally see when the radiator cap is removed. Once the engine warms up the tstat opens and the fluid flows.

Don't open the radiator when it's hot it could be under pressure and put hot fluid on you.

If it's overheating then the most likely cause is the thermostat being stuck in the closed position.

Sounds like your linkage slipped out of sequence. On your transmission there is a place where you can manually shift your tansmission through the gears. When you move the selector on the trani it should move the shifter as well. All the way up on selector should be park, then R,N,D so on. If you move the selector all the way up at your shifter reads something else, you need to adjust the linkage and put car in park with selector on trani in park and tighten linkage back up. Run through all the gears and you should be good.

If you bought a refurb alternator it could be bad out of the box. It has been known to happen, also check all fuses and relays in fuse box and or engine bay depending on car type. Your battery might also be the problem, or a short in the wiring.
