Question about 1992 Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

"Check Engine Light"

My '92 grand marquis has a problem, it surges when the check engine light comes on when you are driving but the light has no set pattern when it comes on. It just does when you're driving and it goes on and off. It also sometimes surges when idling mostly when in a gear. I have got the codes from the computer and they say that the fuel pump secondary circuit is open to the pcm and another one that says it is open to the battery. I have changed the EGR system including the tube to the exhaust, sensors, and the valve it self as well as the maf sensor. It has had a full tune up and I can't figure out what is causing it and it is getting terrible mileage I think because of it. Can you help me?

Thanks, Roger

    you need the KOER (key on and engine running ) codes and the KOEO (key on engine off codes.

    Use a scan tool to clear all the codes disconnecting the battery will not do it!

    Drive the vehicle for about ten miles on the freeway or until the check engine light returns recheck the codes both engine on and engine off. There are two totally different methods of retreiving these codes on an older ford I need both sets of codes please.

    email them to me at fixincars@yahoo.com

    Make sure the car is warmed up before you check for codes or you will get a coolant sensor code.

Sounds like fuel pump wiring, but could be fuel pressure regulator is bad or vacuum hose to it is bad. Also check for ANY vacuum leaks. Replace fuel filter,too. don-ohio

Hi, welcome to FixYa.com my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.
Two possible causes first a bad DPFE sensor which monitors EGR flow or next clogged EGR ports. Remove the throttle body 4 8mm bolts and a cable then clean the EGR passage out. Clear the code by disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes.


I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

Which is the check engine fuse on 1999 mercury grand marquis


There is no such fuse; the check engine light comes on when the OBD system detects a malfunction or a sensor that is operating outside the pre set perimeters.
You can turn the light off by scanning and erasing the code(s), but that is just an band aide solution; the proper way is to diagnose the reason for the check engine light being on and fix that problem.

92 Mercury wont go in reverse


they are not related. The check engine light just means you are not passing emissions right now.
The reverse issue sounds like a tranny replace or overhaul.
