Download Direct-Hit 2000 Ford Windstar 3.8L Test Details Hotline Archive # 124501 Confirmed Fix Vehicle Application: 1999 Ford Windstar 3.8L, Vin 4 2003 Ford Windstar 3.8L 2000 Ford Windstar 3.8L, Vin 4 Customer Concern: The battery light is on, but the alternator is charging. Has a code P1246. Tests/Procedures: 1. Disconnect the alternator and the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). Check the Violet (VT) (GENerator MONitor or GENMON) wire from the alternator to pin 20 of the PCM connector and the Red/Pink (RD/PK) (GENerator COMmand or GENCOM) wire from the alternator to pin 45 of the PCM for high resistance, an open, or a short to ground. Repair the wiring as needed. 2. If the wiring checks OK, reconnect the PCM and alternator. Start the engine and monitor the VT wire for a roughly 0-10v square wave signal. The signal will be around 40-50% normally with no loads on the system and minimal charging system output.… Read More
Download Ford : 2000-2007 Taurus 2000-2003 Windstar 2004-2007 Freestar MERCURY: 2000-2005 Sable 2004-2007 Monterey. ISSUE: Some 2000-2007 Taurus, 2000-2005 Sable, 2000-2003 Windstar, and 2004-2007 Freestar/Monterey vehicles, equipped with a 4F50N, AX4N, or AX4S transaxle, may exhibit an erratic fluid level reading on the transaxle dipstick and possible leaks around the filler tube and grommet. The condition may be due to a restricted transaxle vent. ACTION: Repair the transaxle vent restriction by replacing the transaxle vent with a 90° vent stem, small hose clamp, two (2) tie raps, and 24″ (61 cm) of 5/16″ (8 mm) vacuum hose. The 5/16″ (8 mm) vacuum hose will be routed from the 90° vent on the transaxle back to the cowl area, next to the brake master cylinder and tie rapped in place with the end of the hose facing down. Refer to the following Service Procedures. SERVICE PROCEDURE 1. Disconnect the mass air flow (MAF) sensor electrical connector.… Read More

INTRODUCTION GEMINI 7039E. The system Gemini 7039E is a module studied to control the vehicle central door locking. It can be installed on vehicle with 12 or 24 volts battery (negative to earth). DESCRIPTION – Remote controlled module to open/close the vehicle doors with dynamic code ( frequency 433.92 MHz ). – Blinker. – Central door locking, electric windows and sunroof closure control (for vehicle equipped with Pack-comfort system). The system Gemini 7039 is equipped with N. 2 transmitters (Art.7218E). INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS (for the installer). – Connect the feeding wire to the battery positive terminal and the earth directly to the vehicle frame. – Avoid routing connections next to interference source (plug wires high voltage coil etc.) DIP SWITCH PROGRAMMING TABLE 1 ON Self-learning of a new active code. 1 OFF Self-learning of a new isolated code ( normal use) 2 OFF Not used 3 ON Central door locking control: 6 sec.… Read More
Download PRODUCT ACCESSORIES DESCRIPTION The 1100F interface module is used when installing remote start products in Ford vehicles equipped with a factory immobilizer. The 1100F allows for easy interfacing between the remote start and the factory immobilizer, while maintaining the integrity of the OEM system. The factory transponder-based anti-theft system uses a small electronic chip hidden in the key to send a code to the vehicle’s transceiver when the ignition is energized. The key must be placed in the ignition and turned to the RUN position. This energizes a coil surrounding the key, which in turn energizes the chip, which sends a code to the vehicle. If the vehicle does not detect the code being sent, the vehicle will start and then immediately shut off or will just crank, and the anti-theft light will flash. The 1100F provides a valid code to the vehicle whenever it is remote started, but does not affect the immobilizer system during normal vehicle operation; the immobilizer system remains fully functional.… Read More

Tests/Procedures: 1. Check the right side (passenger side) Intake Valve Timing Control Position (IVTCP) sensor for 12 volts on the Black/White wire. 2. Check the IVTCP sensor for a good ground on the Black wire. 3. Scope the Yellow/Green signal wire and look for a square wave signal of around 8 volts. Check the pattern of the right side sensor and if unsure of the pattern, compare it to the left bank sensor. Potential Causes: IVTCP Sensor Wiring — IVTCP sensor wiring/connection.
