We have an 1993 Ford Econoline E-150 Van that chugs, and spews out black exhaust unless we let it warm up for 20 minutes. We know there is a leak in the exhaust close to the catalytic converter that we tried to fix but it didn't help. Also, all of the controls on the steering wheel (cruise, horn) have stopped working and the air bag light blinks a code of three, then two. Any ideas?


The steering wheel likely has some bad wiring in the harness. You will have to remove the steering column covering and take a look inside. Check and if needed, test the wiring with an ohm/volt meter. For the black smoke and chugging. I re ... 1993 Ford Econoline

I changed the battery and then could not start the van. The interior and exterior lights would flash, but I could not start it. Finally found the valet button and was able to disarm the alarm so that I could start the van and get it home. Tried to rearm it but it just does not seem to work right. The light seems to blink a little differently thatn it used to and then I can't start it. I have to turn the key and hit the valet switch to start it.

1997 FORD Aerostar Van, turn signals and flashers are not working. Even with the flasher "not working" I am not getting the turn signal light light to come on and hold.
