#38 of 49 Fuse, or relay for headlights?
Dec 12, 2009 (5:26 am)
On my 1992 Ford Aerostar XL van, both of my headlights stopped working at the same time. Would that not indicate that either a fuse or a relay needs replacing? If so, 1) which one? 2) And where do I locate it? 3) And how do I access it? If you have an image you can show me that would help, but is not absolutely necessary.
Please help me if you can. I normally do quite a bit of my driving after dark, but cannot do so until I resolve this problem.
#39 of 49 DONGING NOISE
Dec 26, 2009 (7:38 am)
I have a 93 aerostar that started making a donging noise,as if you left your headlights on with the car turned off.I wiggle the ignition key a little and it stops,but then when i pull out the headlight switch it starts donging,and won't stop while driving. Is there some where i can unhook this so it stops donging,or do i need a new switch some where,ignition or headlight switch?

No singal lights, and no reverse lights are coming on. I checked the fuse box and fuse #5 is burned out but there is a short in it.

When I turn ignition on the check engine signal lights up. As soon as it starts it goes out. Is this a problem? Can I reset this

What did they have to repair to make it possible to shift into reverse again? Was it a part in the tranny, or some other issue?

When the key is turned on the engine light should come on then it should turn off after a few seconds. This indicates that the system is operating correctly.
#47 of 49 97 Aerostar AWD 4.0 BATTERY INDICATOR DROPS IN IDLE
Aug 03, 2010 (8:42 am)
WHEN IN IDLE, THE BATTERY INDICATOR DROPS DRASTICALLY! THIS ONLY HAPPENS IN IDLE MODE. HAD THE BATTERY CHECKED AND FOUND THAT IT WAS UNABLE TO TAKE A CHARGE SO HAD IT REPLACED. THE PROBLEM STILL EXISTS. ALTERNATOR? VOLTAGE REGULATOR? HAD THE PROBLEM START RIGHT AFTER I PLUGGED MY A/C COMPRESSOR IN WHILE THE A/C SYSTEM WAS TURNED ON. THE CLUTCH PULLED IN IMMEDIATELY AS I PLUGGED IT IN AND EVER SINCE I HAVE BEEN HAVING THE PROBLEM WITH THE INDICATOR DROPPING DRASTICALLY IN IDLE. ONE MORE THING, ONLY WHEN THE AC IS ON DO I HAVE THE DROP.
