Where is the flasher on a 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis if the directional lights will not work?

See related question and solution I have a 96 Grand Marquis and this did not solve my problem. I removed the colored plastic housing around the steering wheel and replaced the turn signal switch (called multi switch or something like that). It controls high beam, turn signal, and wiper switches. It cost only about $25 and did the trick for me. The hazzard switch is also built into this switch system. NAPA auto parts carries this item or the Ford dealer. == Slow down and try it the easy way first and save time and money: Before going to all above cost and trouble, give the WD-40 "solution" a try. My 95 Grand Marquis had no brake lights (except third high-mounted, for some reason), no turn signals, no emergency flasher; but bulbs, fuses, etc. were all OK. I thought it was a bad switch or flasher, but simply squirting some WD-40 around the emergency flasher button on top of the steering column between the steering wheel and the dashboard/instrument panel and pushing the button in and out several times cleared everything up! There are several theories on why it works, but who cares since it is such an accessible, simple and foolproof method. If you don't know what WD-40 is, just Google it! == == ---- The fuse block you are looking for should be behind the knee bolster (the trim panel under the steering column), between the steering column and the emergency brake lever, underneath the dash.

Lay on your back with your legs hanging out of the driver's side door, put your head against the brake pedal, and look up and to the right. ;)

I don't remember right off the top of my head if there are separate flashers for the turn signals and the hazard lights, but they should look almost identical. Round, silver or blue or black, and about the size of a half-dollar.

TIP: If you are replacing the flasher, go with the upgraded electrical flasher (or the heavy duty) rather than the standard one.

How do you remove the front driver's side door panel to replace the window regulator in a 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis?

See detailed instructions here (steps 1-7)...

http://www.autoclinix.com/Mercury/Front%20Speakers2.htm

I have replaced the regulators on all except the driver's side. Remove screws at bottom of panel & behind the door open handle (pry the plastic recessed cover off & the screw is then visible). Pry off the switch panel on the armrest. Remove screws on the switch assembly and unplug the wire connector. The door panel is removed by lifting it up & out. Carefully peel off the sheet plastic water barrier and save. The cable assembly has torx screws and rivets, the glass has rivets only and has to be removed. Drill out the rivets and remove the glass through the window opening(there is a guide strip that runs along the bottom of the window opening that lifts off) Unscrew the motor (3 torx screws) & pull it off the cable assy. The wires can remain attached and you can let it drop inside the door. Drill out the cable assy rivets and wiggle it out of the door cavity. Replace the cable assy then the glass and do everything above in reverse order, using care with glass. Replace the rivets with 1 inch and half inch hex head bolts and washers and nylon insert locking nuts. This job is not as difficult as it appears. With an electric drill and a socket wrench it can be done in 2 hours.

Is there or should there be a filter screen under the PCV valve of a 1990 Mercury Grand Marquis with a 5.0 L engine?

i have never run into a screen on the pcv valve at lest not that old of a 5.o I have the same car and there is a screen under the pcv. I have a 1988 Grand Marquis with the 302 engine. There is a metal mesh filter under the pcv valve. This filter is about 3/4 inch wide and 3/4 inch thick. To remove the filter, the large rubber grommet that the PCV valve sits in must first be pulled out of the engine block ( by hand). Then you can reach in and get a fingernail under one of three small tabs on the top of the filter and pull the filter out for cleaning. The PCV valve is located on the top of the engine block, at the back of the engine close to the fire wall, near the center of the block. All you can see of the factory installed PCV is a thin metal ring between the hose that connects to it and the grommet it sits in. I was able to remove and replace the PCV, grommet, and filter with my left hand while laying over the engine from the passenger side.

What is the problem in a 2001 Saturn SC1 if it clicks when you try to start it and it will not jump start?

The starter is probably at fault. Hit it with a hammer real good and if it starts it is the starter for sure. That won''t work but a few times.

Radio

How do you replace the radio in a 2002 Mercury Grand Marquis?

you need radio tools,i found mine at walmart,they look like a big u,they come two to a pack, insert tools in holes beside radio,spread slightly toward outside with thumbs while pulling.

I was able to do this on my 1995 model by cutting a wire clothes hanger and making two u-shaped horseshoe looking hooks. You can insert these into the holes on each side of the radio releasing the latches and you can ease the radio out.

I used the tool, pushed it in, but the radio didn't come out. What am I doing wrong?

Where is the radiator drain plug on a grand marquis?

If you dont see the petcock, then pull the bottom hose to the radiator; remove radiator cap or remove cap from the fill antifreeze expansion add-to tank reservoir. I think this will remove any air lock and drain out faster.

Where is the power steering fluid reservoir on a 2000 Pontiac grand prix V6 3800?

It is under the alternator. You will need a flashlight . The cap and reservoir can be seen behind and under the alternator on the passenger side of the car almost to the firewall. You need a thin arm and a small hand to reach it. If you need to add fluid, buy a long neck flexible funnel. It is not easily reached and probably not checked too often during regular servicing.

Why would fuse 16 for the directional signals blow on a 2002 Mercury Grand Marquis?

If this is the case, try disconnecting the ac compressor. If not that, it could be in the 'master switch' (turn signal lever unit). Does anything else go out along with the turn signals? Does it only happen when you turn on the heater or ac?

How do you remove the instrument panel on a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis?

I've got the same problem, except I own a 00 Marquis. I took my car to a friend of mine who works at a near by stereo shop where they install car stereos all day. He said to undo the two screws located above the speedometer and the rest is held in place by locator pins. I haven't tried this yet myself but it seems logical. Also, let me know if you came up with some better info on your own.

Eric upal_2@yahoo.com

I just removed my instrument panel and I had to pry off the decorative trim (snap in connectors)under the panel on both sides of the steering wheel and across the length of the car to get to six screws that hold the bottom part of the panel. You have to remove the two screws above the speedometer as described above, and I had to remove the radio. The panel tilts from the bottom and pulls out, then you have access to the four screws that hold the instrument cluster in place. You also have to remove the connectors for the headlight switch and intrument panel dimmer switch to completely remove the panel.

How do you replace the floater in the gas tank of a 1981 Mercury Grand Marquis?

Hey Jan==I imagine when you say floater, you mean the float on the arm for the fuel gauge. This is all part of the fuel gauge and you have to remove the tank, then remove the gauge and install a new one. I don't know why you would change it but make sure it is needed. GoodluckJoe

Anyone know how to remove door panels on a 96 Grand Marquis?

See detailed instructions here (steps 1-7)...

http://www.autoclinix.com/Mercury/Front%20Speakers2.htm

I have a 95 so it shouldn't be that different. There is one screw at the bottom and two in the handle. The plastic peice where the window button is should pop up and pull out. Unscrew the switches from that peice. There sould be another screw in the door after removing that peice. Take off your lock knob and also remove the cover that protects the opening handle. Lift the panel up and it should come right off.

The 1996 geand marquis door panel ha a hidden screw just beneath the armrest cover. Simply "pop' the cover up and you will find the "hidden' screw. the rest is much the same of removing any door panel. good luck.

What would cause a 92 Mercury Grand Marquis to start when cold but the engine doesn't even turnover when warm?

Maybe the starter needs replaced. When it gets warm the armature may contact the field due to expansion and worn bushings at either end of the armature shaft. When it is cold there is enough clearance between the armauture and field to allow it to rotate without shorting out.

Will 22 inch rims and tires fit on a 1996 Mercury Marquis?

There is just not enough room under the fenders to handle the radius of 22" wheels, even if you were to use low profile tires.

20's will fit with no real mods needed, but a move up to 22's or larger? You're getting into suspension mods.

I have seen 26" DUB rims with low profiles on 91+ Marqs. It CAN be done (anything can be done if you want to pay for it), but you'll have to completely redo the suspension both front and rear. You'll have to raise the car about six or eight inches.

It is not a cheap prospect, and you probably won't be able to do it yourself.

I have 22"s on my 92 grand marquis and i only needed to put spring spacers on to keep the car from squatting all the way down on the rims.

the spacers will work you will lose some of the ride quality with a lift you lose all of it

How do you replace a hinge pin bushing on a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee front door?

You can purchase replacement hinge pin and bushing kits from Napa, O'Reilly, Etc. Part numbers are: Dorman 38422 NAPA 675-1594 They are about $5.99 per pin, (2) required per door.

Then you have to install as listed below on digitalrevo.

There is a hinge kit available from dealers- my understanding is that it's pretty expensive, and replaces the complete hinge, so it requires welding a new hinge to the door. My door was rusted out at the bottom anyway, so I bought a complete replacement from a salvage shop.

Here's a guide to replace the door pins and bushings. http://www.digitalrevo.com/jeep/doorpins.html

Where is the factory keypad entry code located in a Taurus - Sable?

See Taurus Car Club "Related Links" below for photos and additional detailed informationI have a 2001 Sable, I don't think it should be that much of a difference.

I finally found mine today, after 9 months of looking for a dumb computer module. First, you have to locate the fuse box. It should be on the left hand side of the brake pedal. Then, remove the cover. There should be two bolts, one on each side of the box, you can remove them with pliers. Next pull the fuse box out and on the back of the box it should be a white sticker with a five digit code on it!

P.S. If you have the owner card it should be on there also a 5 digit code.

See "Related Questions" below for more

All ford keypad entry codes are located on the firewall on the driver's side.. Above the brake pedal.. it's a big sticker with a 5 digit code on it.

I have a 2001 ford explorer sport and my code was found where the tire jack is in the side compartment,"in the back on the drivers side".you will need a flashlight to see it. It is on the inside looking toward the front of vehicle.

Its on top of the computer module located on the firewall under the hood

1992-95 SHOThe code for my '95 SHO is missing (but normally printed on a sticker inside the trunk) on my '92 SHO the sticker with the code is on the drivers side trunk lid.

On my 97 Taurus LX, there's an off-white plastic box under the driver side dash, above the gas pedal. You have to look up there with a flashlight, and push the box to one side. There you'll see a white sticker with the factory entry code (five digits).

--SG, Grand Rapids, MI

In your owners manual booklet, there is a small plastic card at the bottom left of the booklet, on the card is your keypad code, once you get that refer to your owners manual to add an additional code.

The owner' manual list two possible locations of the 5-digit factory code. One, the code is on a card that came with the owner's manual packet. The second should be taped to the computer module.

Each car has it's own code. I just purchased an 05 and it says it is on the owners card or on the computer control module. Not sure if it is a sticker on the module or has to be read by a service tech. Hope this helps. I know the older Lincolns had them on a sticker somewhere on the vehicle.

2004 mercury sable keypad code

I'm not sure if you are looking for this so you can find the code for the keypad but if you are the code for the keypad is on the side of the black fuse box below the dash on the drivers side. It is not on a sticker it is just printed on the side of the box. I have also heard it could be on the white box behind the black fuse box. It took me forever to find this

A LITTLE WHITE STICKER LOCATED IN THE TRUNK USUALLY ON THE HINGE

I'm not sure for the 1997 but,for my 1996 Taurus the key code is on a white sticker located on the computer under the dashboard.

2003

the code is located on a module on the fuse box to the left of the brake pedal. first you have to unscrew to bolts on the bottom of the fuse panel, pop off the plastic covering of the fuse box once you removed screws and bolt on each side pull it forward as far as you can and reach up under there is a small white module maybe 3x4 inches there is a label stuck to the back of this white module with the code right there 5 digits. I tried to read mine with a small mirror its pretty tricky to get to and less you are very limber. so i just stuck my hand up there and it peeled right off i did it and i am a 50 year old female

ou should check under the trunk lid i have a 92 grand marquis and it is in the trunk lid but it could be on the trunk hinge arms also

I would say with proof of ownership your local Mercury Dealer should be able to help. Because they would know how to Reset it. Good Luck and Remember.

Change Your Mind, Not Your Oil.

Use the First In Synthetic Motor Oil's.

See My Bio For more information.

It should be on a white sticker on the Keyless Entry control unit. Not sure about 2001, but on my older Taurus it is found in the back of the trunk. You might also check under the dash. You might need to use a mirror.

- 1995its in the owners manual or else you can open the trunk and it should be printed on the strut

Can 22 inch rims fit on a 1997 Grand Marquis?

Yes. You have to use the lowest profile tire and wheel available currently. I believe at this time you would want to go with a 22" wheel with a width of 8-8.5", and use a tire sized 245/30-22. The only company, to my knowledge, that has a tire available in this size is Pirelli. Good luck.

well that's not the only thing you can do cause I'm from FL and I seen all the way up to 26"s,you may want to thing about getting a lift on your car mainly upgrading your springs a 2" lift would be just right I have a 99 merc on 24"s deep dish,only got it lifted about 3.5" front 3" rear with no scrub no rub
