Cd player in van not working properly

My cd player(which has been working for four years) in my Villager van has recently started working intermittently.I tried cleaning the contacts behind the detachable face plate but this is still happening.It will work fine for twenty minutes or so then it will start showing"see you""hello"repeatedly and won't work at all.Then later usually overnite it will start working again.Do you think the face plate is going bad?Thanks for any help.

    I have the same problem with my JVC KD-s580. Only now it has stopped working altogether. I've checked fuses, power, contacts, did the reset all to no avail. Time to pull the plug on this one? By the way, the power button is not used, it comes on when the vehicle is running ( used too!). What now?

Is it always 20 minutes or is it random. If it intermittently switches off, i would say that the power button has a problem. Maybe there is dirt, or moisture simply tha the switch has no 'spring action' anymore that it touches the contacts.

1995 mercury villager that the battery light and the brake light are on when the van is running and dash lights go on and off.

The alternator is not charging the battery. Could be a bad connection bugt usually it's the alternator that's bad. The Villager & Quest both turn on the battery light and the brake light when the charging system is not working porperly

How to install a Command start in a 1993 Mercury Villager Nautica Van

This is the address for Command's wiring diagram for your villager. There is also a "tech line" you can contact for any questions that aren't answered here.
As far as doing a job like this, its not really a "beginners" job. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the unit, the harnesses, the car itself etc. Read all the literature etc... Be sure to have ALL the tools ready to go before you even start. I use a butane soldering iron and heat shrink tubing instead of scotch-lock connectors because I believe good soldering and good shrink wrap is MUCH more reliable and will likely outlast the van! There will be certain parts of the job that require using 1/4" blade connectors. Be sure to have high quality, properly sized (for the wiring gauge) connectors and good crimping pliers (Thompson crimpers). I always used connectors with a one piece (no split in the barrel where the wires enter) Perhaps their tech line can shed some light on this for you as well. In addition, be sure to have good, sharp cutters and strippers. Whatever you do, don't just cut, strip, twist and tape! That's a DISASTER waiting to happen!!! Be sure to go slow, starting and finishing each connection one at a time. Be SURE that you've disconnected the battery before you start! I've been working on car wiring for over 25 years and pro-audio for over 20 as well as electronic repair since high school so I'd say my info is pretty good! :D Good luck with your van!

I have had a 1995 Mercury Village for ten years. Recently I read about the spare tire cable hoist and plate rusting and the spare wheel falling off onto the street. I real road hazard. Mine is very rusted...


Unfortunately Ford/Mercury did not issue any recall about the spare tire cable. Here all recalls concerning your van model: 1996 Mercury Villager Recalls.

A good solution would be replacing the spare tire nut and cable. A solution is getting an aftermarket replacement like the one below. That should be safe enough to allow you putting the spare cable back in place under the van without safety concerns. Click on the picture below to open the page.


Or click here.

Note: If the problem is not the spare tire nut and cable but the rod attached to the chassis you will need to carry a welding job to fix a new rod to the chassis. In that case the repair must be done at the garage. If the problem is nut and cable I suggest buying the part shown above or an equivalent.

1997 Mercury Villager car will turn over, but will not start. Used ether but nothing. Can't get spark. Installed another coil-- nothing. Installed electonic ignition module--nothing. Any ideas???

if you can get a scan tool, hook it up and check to see if you are getting engine RPM while cranking. if not than you may have faulty cranck sensor.

99 mercury villager van

Yes, but you need lots of skill and body tools to permanantly repair that. This is caused by owners not knowing that there are tiny drain holes in the bottom of the doors, that get clogged up with dirt. If a person just checked and cleaned them out once a year, with a pipe cleaner.......this would never have happened
