This is for auto dimm view at night. A little small green ligh will lighte if it is on.Also there is a switch in the lower trim edge to put it on.
And if it is smooking must be a shortage some where.
Any way u can do with out it just make sure that what ever is causing the short is not somewhere else.

hope this helps

Yes it is the tool for fuel lines and ac lines. Your local autoparts store should have them, they are universal. You need to use the small end for the fuel filter.

SOURCE: the spark plug will not screw in it seems like the

Quick Tip. Take one old spark plug and saw an X across the threads on the bottom with your hacksaw. Clean away the filings. Oil it and thread it into the spark plug hole. This is called re tapping. Then try the new plug again. Has worked many times for me.

SOURCE: 2000 excursion misfire on cyl 4. traded plug,

Remove the plug and check the compression for that cylinder it should be between 120 psi and 150 psi, if it is low it is a mechanical issue (bad valve or worn piston rings). If commpression is low remove the valve cover and turn over the motor confirming that both valves for that cylinder are opening to there correct travel or height if not it is a faulty hydraulic lifter or worn cam. Also check the valve lash clearance the clearance is usually .012" for the exhaust valve and .008" for the intake valve to check the lash turn the motor over until the valve shuts completely for each valve, then use a feeler gauge go no go procedure. Has the wire been replaced for the plug? If this motor has coil on plug type disregard plug wire question.

2000 Ford Excursion signal lights and hazard lights do not work?


There is a turn signal/flasher relay that has probably died. They are usually plugged into the cars fuse box. Get a new one from a dealer - they are cheap enough.

I have a 2000 Ford Excursion. I went to hook up a


If these lights still work on your excursion then it is probably not a fuse problem. It sounds like it is a loose pin(s) with the trailer plug or a loose electrical connection(s) on the trailer or maybe the bulbs on the trailer are burned out. This should help, if not then contact me again at FixYa and I will be glad to help.

Do you know it the Excursion came with a factory towing package option when new? If it did, it's probably located under the vehicle at the rear where the trailer hitch is (or would be installed). countrycurt0
