  1. PS, just did a quick google search on rebuilt car wire harness - seems there is more than a couple companies that might be options S
  2. I have not used them, but was given this website by another member: http://wiringharnessrestoration.com/ Steve
  3. Less expensive: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-OEM-Ford-F7RZ-7210-FA-Automatic-Transmission-Shifter/183274494273?fits=Model%3AContour%7CMake%3AFord&epid=2127217139&hash=item2aac02d941:g:5HgAAOSw3HZbIupv:rk:17:pf:0
  4. Its the full unit, but I think you have to replace the entire unit on a 95 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-OEM-Ford-F5RZ-7210-B-Auto-Trans-Shifter-Assembly-1995-1997-Mystique/183229481589?fits=Model%3AContour%7CMake%3AFord&hash=item2aa9540275:g:h~IAAOSwQQBa~NYv:rk:4:pf:0
  5. So... I have 2 1995 Contour SE's. They are both in excellent shape, both with about 130k miles. Love these cars, and would like to keep them for as long as they hold up. Both of them have Traction Control and ABS. With both cars, the traction control and ABS lights are on (solid). My mechanic believes this is caused by the part of the wire harness that goes down to the ABS sensor, then on to the speed sensor. I have replaced the main harness's with units that came from SVTTOUR, and have checked with him about these harnesses. He has politely replied that he does not have any in his stockpile of parts and no longer rebuilds them, citing unavailable parts. Does anyone else happen to have these admittedly rare parts or have a line the connectors (assume the actual wires are not all that difficult to get). I would think I have the skills to rebuild these if I'm able to get the parts. Alternatively, does anyone have any experience to say that the connectors are not always that bad, and it is more a questing of degraded wires. Any thoughts/comments appreciated. Thanks in advance

  7. Should anyone be looking in the Northeast: https://nwct.craigslist.org/cto/d/1999-svt-ford-contour-5-speed/6268811510.html
  8. Currently own a 95 SE with leather -- snow, sleet, rain today and tomorrow, so have to wait a day or so for pic's. Are you looking for something specific?
  9. Looks to be in pretty good shape and well cared for: http://bringatrailer.com/listing/1999-ford-contour/
  10. The fans turn on and stay on if you have the AC turned on -- were you running your AC?
  11. Anybody planning to attend? Bring a car?
  12. I have a 95 SE, 2.5 Atx. Traction Control and ABS lights first started to come on when I would take the car to the car wash (hand wand style). They would be on after the wash, but go off in a day or so. Assume water was the culprit. On a long distance trip in the rain, lights came on but never went off. Been that way for about a year, not a biggie, just no time to get into it. Recently, driving the car in heavy rain, lights started flashing, ABS would go off, TC would stay on, then return to both on. This cycled thru most of the day (heavy rain all day). Late in the day, parked at a friends, car was running normally, lights were on. Came out about a 1/2 hour later. Car started right up, shifted into reverse, made it about 10 feet, car died. Would not restart. Waited about 30 minutes, repeat--start, move 10 feet, stalls will not restart. Let is sit overnight, rain stopped, started right up the next morning, runs fine lights are on. I have a refurbished main harness (have already replaced the battery harness). I want to replace the harness, assuming there is the typical cracking wiring in the existing harness. My question is how easy or difficult is the actual process? I can get access to a friends garage (winter hear, garage is ot heated, but obviously better than just outside). If I had a local garage tackle this, anyone know how much time it takes? Anyone been there done that? Thanks for anyone's input.
  13. In case anyone is interested...... http://worcester.craigslist.org/pts/5794533889.html
