    1996 contour SE V6
  1. 1996 contour v6 Does anyone have a how to installing aftermarket cooling fans? My ride is an old one and i don't want to buy a new oem one. Is there a mod out there? thanks guys
  2. There is a black and green one. Which is high and which one is low?
  3. My AC hasn't been working for several years now. I changed my resistor just a couple years ago and from what I stated, it doesnt rain that much here so therefore no muddy places where the resistor can rust up.
  4. 96' contour se v6 About 3/4 on my way to work the fans kick in. The thing is that it remained on til I got to park the car at work. Curiosity got to me...I left the engine idle for about 5-10 min more. It still stayed on. I looked at the gauge inside and it was at in the normal range under between the N and O. Could it be the resistor? I live in Hawaii where its not that rainy or muddy, so the resistor should be ok. Anyways I changed the resistor a couple years ago. All the fluids are good. What could it be? Please help. Thanks guys.

  6. 96 tour 2.5 V6 auto Terry, I heard you're the man when it comes to the tranny. I know the reverse switch is on the tranny, but where is this reverse switch specifically located on an automatic trans? I really need to check and prolly change the switch, cause I cant pass my safety inspection without fixing this reverse light issue. My reverse light wont work when i'm in reverse. Hope you can help. Thanks
  7. 96 V6 2.5 tour automatic I recently took my tour to the shop for an annual safety inspection that I truly deeply hate. The guy who does safety inspections noticed that my reverse lights didn't work while in reverse. He checked out the bulbs, fuses and connections with the volt meter and they were all good. He then said it might be a bad switch. So I drove the car home leaving without an inspection and took to the internet. I've read on other forums that on the tranny there's a switch, but can't seem to find it when I look under the hood. Then I read further that it was for manual trans. What about for auto? Where is this switch? How does it look like, so I can search the tranny for it. Help cause my registration is due at the end of the month. I have to fix this issue. Thanks.
  8. My mechanic friend came over and confirmed it is a bad starter. Just out of curiosity, where is the starter located? Tried looking for it myself and no juice. Photo or diagram will be helpful. thanks
  9. 1996 contour V6. When I try to start the car, only clicks are heard and wont start. I tried jumping the car (brand new battery) just to trouble shoot, and it starts fine. Let it run for several mintues with the cables still connected. I unhooked the cables and tried starting the car. It started with one crank..no problem. I drove the car to napa where a friend of mine works and tested my batteries. Battery has good life, since I just got them a few weeks ago from them. I drove home, parked the car and let it sit for several hours. I went back to try and fire her up and only clicking again. What could be wrong? Cant be alternator, the battery would be dead cell. So I pinned pointed it to the starter. Help needed in trying to find the problem. Thanks.
  10. so is it safe to say I can make a dupe at any locksmith and get a copy? And without them saying there is a chip in it
  11. The one I have circled is what I initiate (located near the lower part of the steering column) before I insert the key into the ignition. Would there be another chip in the key also when I beleive the one I have circled has the chip for the PATS thing. Im confused.
  12. 1996 Contour se V6 I've been wanting to make a dupe of my wearing out original key, so I went to a local key shop and the guy that ran the shop said that there is a chip in the key. Is this right? I left the shop frustrated, so I went to another key place. They said they dont have the template for the year I was specifying, which is 1996. I was beginning to get P'd off, so I again tried another and last shop. They said the same thing the second shop said. Wassup with that. Dont they make keys for 96 year contours. WTF. Does these keys have a so called chip in them? I have a seperate chip that I need to activate in order for me to start the car, but its not in the key. Can experts on the matter chime in, so I can go back to the shops I went to prior and give them a piece of my mind, cause my keys are wearing down as I type. lol.
  13. I know this is an old thread, but will the bags deploy at any given time if the light is illuminated? Meaning is it safe to drive til I get it fixed?
  14. 96 tour duratrec v6 Just installed a Brand spankin new Radiator. Funny thing is that the 60 amp fuse blows when high speed fans kick in at between M and A. Low fans work very well, its when Im at a stop and go in the highway where the High Speed fans kick in at M and A. Is it safe to up the fuse amp to maybe 80? The 60amp seems like its not holding well for the high speed. Thoughts? If not then where do I start doing my detective work on this matter? Bad grounding maybe? Man Im getting frustrated with this car. Please..need Help. Thanks.
