  3. Got a ThunderChicken for 500 bucks

    Newbie Forum
    .... rotors (just got turned).... you are better off getting new ones from RockAuto (about $20) - also - getting hard to find places that will cut rotors - and they want $15 to $30 each to do that the front rotors are ventilated, and those ventilation slots build up rust over time, which...
  4. First repalcement alternator - '96

    Engine - 3.8L & 4.2L
    replaced the OEM 130amp alternator on my 3.8L '96. Rather interestingly, a new Remy at RockAuto was about $100 - same as a reman unit. OEM alternator lasted 174K (20.5 years) - but charging voltage was dropping - I have a voltage indicator plugged into a supplemental power strip and routinely...

  11. Interior lighting problem

    Developed a bizarre interior lighting problem ('96 LX) about a month ago Interior light doesn't go on when the door(s) is opened - but - > when the key is turned forward to "On" (not "Acc" - but "On")- the interior lights (doors and overhead) go on, but no map lights, glove compartment, etc...
  12. Replaced Blend Door Actuator

    Code 24 is fault in blend door calibration during self Test the diagnosis beyond that is rather involved and outlined in the shop manual for the T-Bird. If you don't have a manual - it is well worth it - about $35 (Ford OEM) on eBay Replacing the actuator motor is a PIA - may want to opt for...
  13. Replaced Blend Door Actuator

    I have the diagnostic service book for EATC/ATC for 1993/1997 and it indicates the self-check for the ATC is the same for 1993-1997 models Note that in the procedure - you can set the Function Selector Knob to either Panel or Floor - I just tried it on my '96 - there's a trick to it - you...
  14. Parking brake switch replacement

    Parking brake light on my '96 LX stopped working. Since a few of the instrument cluster bulbs had burned out - at first I thought it was that. But the Brake light would come on during startup along with the other dash lights - so the bulb was good. It was the switch for the parking brake pedal...
  15. check engine light

    Engine - 5.0L & 5.8L
    For any Tbird after 1996 - get an OBD-II code reader (about $20 on eBay for a Creader basic model - $55+ on Amazon and HarborFreight tools) - it will tell you exactly the code that is turning on the CEL and will also clear it. Just connect it to the OBD-II connector below the glove compartment...
  16. replacing LCAs and strut bushings

    started to get noise from my front end (96 T-Bird, 126K) , and the strut bushings were shot. After reading many of the posts on this forum, I got ambitious and decided to replace the LCAs along with the strut-to-LCA bushings. Parts came from RockAuto and Supercoupe Performance (LCAs). The...
  17. Torque specs for monroe shocks and struts

    what do you think of the ride with the Monroe Quik Struts? someone else in this forum complained that the car floated too much with the Quik Struts - but I think he had a V8 - mine's a V6
  18. outside temperature screwy.

    General Tech
    Replacement ATC ambient temp sensor parts numbers well, as it turns out - there are aftermarket sensors -- just need to talk to the right parts guy - If you want to use the self-check (Ign in Run, set dials at Auto and either Panel or Floor, press Cool and Outside simultaneously, then Warm...

    General Tech
    Ambient air sensor no longer stocked - FOAZ 19E702 A Anyone looking for this part (FOAZ-19E702-A) better move fast - my local dealers (Boston area) tell me it is obsolete (meaning no longer stocked, available, or produced - and no replacements for it) and only four dealers in the country still...
