I need urgent help and answer.
I have purchased a Mercury Montego before 40 days. When I purchased it, I saw a warning saying Oil Life is low. I tried to reset it several times but whenever I start the car again it comes back. I have changed the oil but the error keeps coming. This was the only problem I had. After 20 days I got a device from my insurance company which I can plug and get 5% discount on my fees. The car was working fine for few days. After that the instrument cluster shut down completely no lights or gas gauge but the car is working fine. A/C, Radio, cranks fine and even the lights are working fine. I took it to a maintenance place who said he wants 85$ per hour to diagnose the problem and since I'm a student I couldn't really do it. However, he took like a light indicator and touched each fuse on a part which I believe is the computer and all of them were working except one which had number 15 and he changed and still not working.
I have decided to contact another tech and on my way the car made a strange beeping sound. Turn it off and on again and everything started working fine. The tech took like a scanner and connected to the computer and he told me he can see two errors P2067 and P0467. He said he thinks the instrument cluster is bad and need to be changed.
Knowing so less about cars, I was thinking what if the computers is not working fine and the instrument cluster is ok, how do you know? Does the computer control A/C Radio?
I think for now I will just keep driving the car until this happens again.
Please advice as soon as possible.
Thanks for everyone who participate on this website.
