MORE THAN LIKELY THE GAUGE HAS GONE BAD OR DISCONNECTED SOMEHOW. YOU CAN ALSO CHECK THE FUSES UNDER THE HOOD AND ALSO THE ONES INSIDE THE CAR. BUT ON MOST CARS, MOST OF THE THEM USE THE SAME FUSE FOR SEVERAL OTHER GAUGES SO SOME OF YOUR OTHER GAUGES WOULD NOT BE WORKING ALSO. CHECK FUSES BEFORE BUYING A NEW FUEL GAUGE. ALWAYS CHECK THE SIMPLE THINGS FIRST TO SAY TIME AND MONEY. ALSO DO RESEARCH ABOUT IT. YOU CAN FIND ALOT OF GOOD AUTO REPAIR SITES. I HOPE IT HELPS AND GOOD LUCK. JEAN
There is a battery light above the engine temperature gauge
On a 2000 Mercury Cougar : The warning light that looks like a can with an X through it , located between the engine coolant temperature gauge and the tachometer ( at the bottom of the gauge cluster ) is your ( LOW engine cooling system warning light )
On a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer : The " CHECK ENGINE " warning light is just to the left of the battery voltage gauge
Since you had to unplug the wire connector, there is most likely damage to the connector. Check it carefully.
Is there a gauge panel dimmer wheel switch ? Try rotating it , it may be rotated all the way in one direction
You most definately unpluged the sensor wire. It's a single red wired that plugs onto a sensor just passed the thermostat.
Over temperature warning.
On a ( 1996 ) Mercury Tracer , the " check engine " warning light is at theBOTTOM of your instrument panel under the right hand side of the fuel gauge ( under the " F " )
On a 2000 Mercury Cougar : The OIL PRESSURE warning light is located on the right side of your gauge cluster just above the red " BRAKE " warning light It looks like an oil can Just before you start the car , when the ignition key is turned to the RUN position , the light should light up for a few seconds to prove that the bulb works
fuel gauge not working and power windows and radio.2004 mercury mountaineer.
Cluster means all the gauges and warning lights on a vehicle i.e. fuel gauge,temp gauge speedometer, odometer, oil pressure warning lights etc.
Your fuel is low. Its telling you to check your gas gauge...
mostly likely something wrong with the sensor or gauge.
You sure it is the gauge that is broke? I bet it is the sending unit.
The Compound Gauge measures above and below atmospheric pressure (in psig and inches of mercury).
with your eyes
mercury in tube strain gage.
57 psi = 116.1 inches of mercury.
Tire Pressure warning.
The warning light will not come on because you have a separate oil gauge on the Ford Focus. This is the gauge that you should watch and it will show you that you are low on oil; do not rely on the check engine light to alert you of it.
generally speaking the warning light is to catch y0ur attention if you are not looking at the gauges. check the symbol on the warning light and check the corresponding gauge. as they work together, for example if the oil warning light comes on that means the oil pressure is dangerously low and the oil pressure gauge will register little or no oil pressure also.
All starters are somewhere near the flywheel or flexplate, as the starter turns the flywheel or flexplate. That is located between the transmission and engine, but not visable. You will find a heavy gauge wire attached to the starter that will directly or indirectly run back to the battery positive terminal.
More likely the temp sensor has gone bad than the gauge is actually bad.
I should be able to answer your question if you say which YEAR of Ford Windstar ( I was looking at the 1996 Ford Windstar owners manual and it doesn't have any warning lights above the engine temperature gauge )
