While I won't say anything is absolutely impossible, I can't think of a plausible connection between these three items. How do you know the timing is off? Have you measured it? Is that your way of saying it's not running right? If so, what are the exact symptoms? If the dome light has a switch attached to it, make sure it's not in the "always on" position. If it doesn't have an integral switch, check the dash illumination dimmer switch -- many of them have a "dome light always on" position they click into at the full brightness end of their range. If that isn't the explanation, the next most likely thing is one of the door switches is faulty.

Timing procedure 95 ford contour?

I don't have a Contour, but if it has a distributor, then you use a timing light and simply twist the distributor cap to change the timing. If it has coil packs, then it's all done electronically, and you can't adjust it. If your timing is still off, you have a sensor somewhere feeding the ECU bad info. ====================================================== All of the Contour engines' ignition timing is controlled by the computer, and is not adjustable. If there were any sort of problem in this area, the computer would turn on the "Check Engine" light and store an error code.

First off, its a chain, NOT a belt, and you DONT change it unless it breaks. You can SET the timing, but you dont have to change the chain. You need a timing light to re-set it if its off. Its like a strobe light.

1991 lx 5.0 how do you change the timing?

IF you have already set the timing to spec, you alter timing by loosening the distributor and turning the base to adjust timing. You will need a timing light to measure the timing. Pull out the spout before adjusting so the computer will not alter the timing. HTH.

There is a bolt on the base of the distibuter loosen the it until you can turn the distributer and turn until timing is on. a timing light sjould be used but you can turn until the engine sounds RIGHT.

How do you fix the problem of jumped timing with out timing light?

Your question is too vague usually when someone says that their engine has jumped time that means that the timing chain has jumped on the timing sprockets. If that is the case you would need to change them. If the distributor is out of time to do it right you would need to have a timing light. You would need a repair manual for the specifications to fix both of them.

Why does the check engine light come on after a timing belt change on a Toyota sienna 02?

There are many reasons why a check engine light could come on following a timing belt change. When the check engine light comes on there is a code stored in the computer to tell you why the light came on. Most auto parts stores will read the code for free.

Can you adjust timing on a 93 dodge shadow with 2.2 without taking the timing belt off?

Answer to this depends upon which timing you want to change. 1. If you want to change the igition timing, this is done by loosening the distibutor. You will need a timing light. You can ususally get service manuals at the local library to give you the procedure. 2. If you want to change the cam timing, this will require you to remove the timing belt. If the cam timing has changed, it is likely because the timing belt is failing. This is very common once the timing belt has anywhere between 45k and 60k miles on it. You are best to replace the belt if it is worn enough to jump timing.

How do I set ignition timing on 350 Chevy?

if you know the proper timing for the engine, and it depends on the makeup of the eng. all 350's are not the same. you need a timing light. loosen the dist. hold down clamp,and with the eng. at an idle , shine the light at the timing mark over the harmonic balancer.if you have to change the timing, rotate the dist. very slowly ,and watch the timing marks with the timing light. when the right mark lines up with the timing pointer, lock the dist. hold down clamp, with the bolt. if the eng. starts running real rough, turn the dist. in the opposite direction.
