Question about 1989 Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

89 Crown Vic brake lights work when park, not when moving.

Weird problem: I step on the brakes while in park, but as soon as I drive away or am rolling they don't work when I stop. (I have someone following me is how I can tell) Would love to solve this quirky problem. Ps Check all fuses, inside car seem to be a-OK, Bulbs too are fine. St8

Car rolls while in park


sounds like your trans is not going into park. this can be a really bad problem if you let it get away from you. Trans repair shop for estimate, get a few and a guarantee with it. But as long as your emergency brake works and you don`t forget to put it on what eh heck.

Can I reset the idrive on my BMW 645 as it works for a couple of weeks and then stops ?


Hi there,

Well you may follow the step below to reset idrive -
Firstly with the ignition switched on, set the odometer trip meter back to zero by pushing it once. Then switch the ignition back off again.
1. Switch the ignition on so that the battery, Oil and Parking brake lights are displayed and the key is ready to start the engine, but note you don't actually start the car.

2. Press the odometer reset button for between 5 and 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in the center appears in the top window between the clocks (where the outside temperature / time or date normally appears) - this is the "Service" icon.

3. Release the odometer button briefly and press again straight away which brings up a picture of the Brake Fluid symbol (same as the one that the i-drive shows when you look at the Service menu).

4. If you want to reset the Brake Fluid interval for another 2 years then keep holding the odometer button until the word "RESET?" appears at the bottom of the lower window.

5. Release the button briefly and push it in again and hold for about 5 - 10 seconds until the new date appears in the bottom window. You can then switch the ignition off and the new Brake Fluid date will appear in the service menu on the i-drive screen next time you switch on.

6. If you want to reset the Oil, Microfilter or Brake Pad indicators then you will need to follow the same sequence as steps 1 and 2 above, but when you get to step 3 and the brake Fluid icon appears, just release the button and press again and the next service item will appear.

7. You can continue releasing and pressing the button until the required service item icon appears for the one you want to reset. As soon as it does then hold in the button in until the word "RESET?" appears again as in step 4 above. Once the word "RESET?" has appeared, you need to release the button briefly and hold it in again for about 5 - 10 seconds until it is replaced by the new service interval figure (as per step 5 above). hope this helps...

Good Luck
Regards

Car dies when you slow for stop signs but runs fine as long as you give it gas


Sounds like a vacuum leak. If it only tries to die when the brakes are applied its probably a vacuum leak. Try testing it in park at home. Its much safer to touble shoot brake problems at home away from traffic. Look for loose hoses. Weird sucking sounds can be a good indicator too. Have someone else push the brake pedal while you look. If you can't see anything obvious get it to a mechanic asap. Before someone gets hurt.

Wont shift out of park


Same thing happened to me. I had accidentally kicked something while streching out my right leg. It turns out there is an actual switch somewhere up above your feet directly above the brake pedal area that I had toggled when streching my leg!

Because I knew that it must have been that I kicked something, I was reaching under there, above near the brake pedal and eventually, miraculously found a little switch, which when toggled again, allowed me to get the car out of park and drive away.

I have yet to find any reference to this in the owners manual or online yet, but it's a fact.
I tried to find the switch again a moment ago, but could not - had to get back into work as I had been stranded on the road for the last half hour.

WEIRD!
