If the sputter got real bad, I could smell what smelled like weed eater gas inside the cabin. As you could also imagine, there is a loss of power.

there is often a plastic junction piece that joins 2 pieces of hose together, possibly this is missing, or detached?

It's actually pretty easy.

1st you will need to remove the driver side knee panel(I know this isn't the proper name but it's easiest to describe it as that).
Couple of bolts on the bottom the pull it from the top. It does snap into place into another black plastic panel.

2nd remove the exposed black panel. Again couple of bolts.
3rd reach inside and push the switch out through the front.
You will probably need to squeeze either the the left and right side or top and bottom as there are some flanges which hold it in place.
4th unplug it.

When replacing it's best to install from the back.

Hello Judy Tatum,

Your drawings are available (free) on-line at BBB Industries
(see below: registration required)... No TSB (tech service bulletins) address your issue(s).

the fact that two troubles are SIMMULTANIOUSLY failing points DIRECTLY to their common CIRCUIT MODULE...!!
I am suspecting you are having an intermittent (power) issue
with your DRIVER'S Seat memory module (BCM)... 14C708.

If... and only if ...
you ALSO have power seats... AND they still work...
your fuse is the same 5 AMP for both) ... THEN...
You can cross that main control fuse OFF of the suspect list.

Your vehicle IMMEDIATELY gives 2 different drawings...

There are TWO different OPTIONS... but the DETAILED schematic drawings show every wire color and connector between the mirrors, pedals, switches and That CONTROL MODULE.

MY ANALYSIS would indicate FINDING your module... 14C708 and carefully checking EACH & EVERY connector COMMON to your pedal control AND your mirror control...

You will find a loose (or badly corroded) one.
((comment me back... I will tell you how to clean & refurbish)).

Fear not your door sills, kick panels and carpeting come up pretty easily... Your car pops together really nicely.

My very best suggestion is to beg, borrow or buy the FACTORY+WORKSHOP+MANUAL... in particular... electrical is in volume three... Reasonably priced on CD... (I use paper).

Else your...
DRIVER'S Seat memory module... 14C708 needs to be "SPARED-OUT" to test a new/previously-owned one.

(Pictures are illustrative ONLY... VERIFY your own numbers).

Hope this helps!

On my 2004 Murcury Monterey, the problem was a broken retainer on the IMRC linkage. The part I used was a DOORMAN HELP part number 47099. You can find these in the self help section of some of the auto parts stores. I found mine at Oriely's. Its hard to get to so replace them all while you are in there. There were five clips in the package and it takes four to do the job. See Hynes manual number 36097, page 4-18 for a photo of the linkage. Good luck!

There is a chance that the problem is voltage in the car in general. Take the Alternator in or have the car tested for Alternator output. Have Battery voltage checked too. While there is no guarantee that voltage is the problem, you would be disappointed if you went through the expense and time replacing the screen and have the new part work the same way because of low voltage.

The next thing would involve taking the center out and checking the wiring. Check for lose wires (ground) and positive line to the center.
If you have a multi-meter (volt/ohm) check for battery voltage to the center.You may need to rip the dash out to get at it. Also get some sort of manual to help you. Good luck.

Hi, Check fuses. The fuse may have blown. replace with same amp fuse. Good luck.

You need to have the codes read. If you keep driving it you could go from a cheaper fix to a transmission rebuild.

Torque specs and tightening sequence for what part of vehicle? Are you talking about cylinder head or something else?

2004 Mercury... | Answered on Mar 07, 2015

you have a gap somewhere in your body work causing this issue. also could be that a window isn't all the way up

2004 Mercury... | Answered on Dec 12, 2014

Possibly a ignition coil getting ready to go.

Check the sensor that is at the bottom of the master cylinder.
Very easy to deal with and a common problem on Ford products.
Not expensive either.
WHat this does is it deactivates the cruise control when you press the brakes. I have had it go out on both of my Ford Vans.
Again, very easy to change. Just remember to have a cup or small pan as some fluid will leak out. Also, you may need to add a little bit of brake fluid when your done, but it shouldn't be much.
