can I repair it?
Stranger with tools said "I know what it is - It's your (3rd) wire, the one that activates the switch." I wanted to see the connection but he said to get in and try it. started right off; problem solved but returned 3 days later. I can't find the same wire, have tried to tighten all connections, but it won't turn over. No click, nothing.
What am I missing? Thanks for any help; count on my reliable vehicle . . . thanx . . . tanck. 08-07-2015.

and when i shut it off am starte it again its fine untill it reaches 30 mph then goes in nuteral
do I follow the distributer cap numbers or is it mixed up?
I do not have the permanent code assigned to the vehicle ...It is used to program your personal code into the system. I have the code it is set at, but the car locks itself sometimes with my phone, purse, etc in the car. The number it has is very hard to remember and I need to change it asap.....The manual says 3 taped pieces have been put into the car nowhere to be found. How can I change it to a number I can remember in an emergency since it locks itself occasionally????????
I took the wheel off and nothing seemed lose. It comes and goes while i drive. Its fine when I drive at slower speeds. Then it shakes bad at 50mph. Shakes the steering wheel. I was going to change out the ball joints and tie-rods because its easy and all bolt on parts. How will i tell if its an axel or ? Ps. last winter i went in the ditch with this van so there could be some wear from that. I have put 6000 highway miles on it in the last 4 months, driving back and forth from Denver to Spokane, WA. I want to drive back up to WA again for Thankgiving but I need to fix this first.
When my van over heats it starts while its moving and it runs hot to the point tha it shuts off. I recently had the thermostat & radiator replaced but i was told that the radiator housing was cracked and its leaking anti freeze. Could that be the problem & I've let it get worst by continuing to drive it?
I have a 1993 Mercury Villager and all of a sudden today when driving the engine will rev and I will lose speed in the middle of driving. The vehicle bucks a little when this happens. What is the problem or things I should check. The oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid are all full and fine. This is just so sudden and I have no idea what it is. I think I smell a little burning rubber, could it be a belt?
