Look in the wiring diagram for a resistance circuit in line with the swit=
ch. =

Most vehicles use a resistor combination to get the low and medium speeds=

while high speed is 12VDC straight through. It's probably a broken wire/=
loose
connector/corroded connection involving the resistors.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Temp swings and body creak

My 95 F-250 Temp gauge swings to about 5/8 hot everytime I get into the pedal. Swings right back again afterward to 7/16. I'm not used to such a dynamic temperature profile. Any ideas?

Also, I have a VERY creaky truck. Slow speed turns and it's like an old house. What should I check?
It's got 119,000 miles, 3,000 of which are mine. Was a fleet truck.

Subject: FTE 80-96 - noisy belts

hello all,
One of my aerostar's belts is making alot of squealing noise.
It's the belt connected to the power steering pump. The power
steering pump also makes noise when I am turning and I have my foot on the
accerlator.
The belts squeal only happens when it is cold out.
Does anyone know what it means to have a belt that squeals when it
is cold?
Victor.

The problem is the resistor on your heater, it will have to be changed.
When they are burnt out they only work on high

Subject: FTE 80-96 - Headlight aiming

Hey list people, I recently ordered a suspension system for my truck, it
will raise the truck approx 4". I would like to measure, somehow, where my
headlights are aimed prior to installation. If I can establish where they
are aimed now then I can compare that to post installation and adjust
accordingly. How in the heck do I mark or measure the existing setup? The
next question is (you guessed it) how do I make the headlight adjustment?

I expect to complete installation in time for the Baja 1000. I will let
you guys know how it went. Will any of you list dudes be at the Baja 1000?

Belt could use tightening. The squealing noise you hear is the belt
slipping. When the belt heats up it usually will stop. Readjust the belt.

At night find a wall and park about 25 feet away with the head lights on.
Mark the place you parked the truck and also mark where the lights are
shinning. After you install the lift, park in the exact same spot with the
lights on and adjust them to the spot you marked the lights prior. I would
think that should work. Good luck.

Park the truck about 15 to 20 ft from a wall or similar, turn on lights and
mark were the center of each light shines on the wall. You should be able to
find a couple adjuster screws or allens near the headlight just inside the
trim

Measure your before lift and after lift front bumper hieght, and raise your
aiming marks on the wall by that amount. Otherwise, the headlights will be
aimed at the ground instead of down the road. If you raise both ends the
same amount you shouldn't even need to mess with headlight adjustment,
anyway.

I used my garage door and a piece of chalk. Marked old sight, adjusted to same
after lift.
Adjustment screws are just outside headlight retaining ring. You should see
indentations in the headlight trim for access to adjust.

I doubt you will need to adjust them at all as the angle with the road will
remain the same as long as you lift the front the same amount as the rear.

The howl seems seems drivetrain related,but it is not a metel on metal

Usualy after setting for a while it will howl and then quiet down.Or it
will howl all the way to work,but not at all on the way home.....
