I went to change my battery for 07 Ford fusion and now the car won't acceleratie. It will start but , no rooms when I press the accelerator? How do I fix this problem?
I have no personal experience but I have read how some computerised cars, especially those called mini hybrids, have to be told when some components are replaced, in particular the battery, using dedicated diagnostic equipment.
Whether this applies to your vehicle or not, it would seem replacing the battery has upset the electronics/software and hopefully no damage has been caused - there is always the possibility of a damaging voltage surge when changing a battery...
It is possible restoring the defaults will provide a cure - not sure about your car but earlier models could be restored by disconnecting the battery for a few hours. I used to just leave them overnight, though it is possible diagnostic equipment might be needed.
There is the possibility the current problem is coincidentally a completely separate fault and again diagnostic equipment will be the first step to a diagnosis...

Ford toureno custom 191 how do i replace rear number plate bulbs
I think these are a 'Hook Out' light fitting. Look closely at the clear lense the light shines through. There should be a small slot in one end. Using a small screwdriver gently lever the whole light fitting out. This should give you access to the bulb holder in the back of the light fitting.
If There is no slot you might need to unbolt the plastic trim they are fitted into from the inside of the door panel. Small nuts about an 8 or 10mm.

My Ford expedition 98 try to start up alone even with out keys, what could be?
When does it try to start by it's self ? All the time ? Have you had any water leaks around the windshild ? You say last rainy season is when this started to happen , I would look at the central junction (fuse) box under left side of dash for water intrusion. Fuses 20 & 21 . Starter electrical circuit wiring diagram shows both of these fuses can supply battery voltage to the starter relay . 21 is a 15 amp fuse , 20 is a five amp fuse . 21 would get battery voltage when you turn the key to the start position . Both feed circuit 325 to the transmission range sensor ,from there circuit 1093 feeds to the starter relay . Battery voltage on that circuit would energize the starter relay turning on the starter an spinning the engine over . There are four connectors that circuit goes through , c172 , c182 , 158 an c243 . You would need to know where these connectors are located on your vehicle to do voltage testing , to see where battery voltage is or where it isn't suppose to be . Lots of videos on youtube on electrical circuit testing , buy a DVOM - digital volt ohmmeter , get a service repair manual an test the circuit .
