    If I tried this, I'd start with a Ford F150 and end with a Chevy Malibu.

    You were so close to fixing it quickly and saving the customer a lot of money!! There are different kinds of signals that temp sensors send out. 1-5V or 4-20ma are the two most common. 99 percent of temp sensors put out those two signals. There are volt meters that simulate those signals! You could have cut the wires to the old sensors, hooked up one of those volt meters and tried putting out 4.5 V onto the return wires while having the diagnostic tool hooked up and see what the correct range for temperature was. For example, if you put out 3V and the temperature reading was 60 degrees, and then you put out 4.5V and the temp reading was 130 degrees you would have your slope/scale. every 1.5V equals 70 degrees etc. Then you just keep adjusting the voltage until you find the high range and low range. Then you buy a simple temp sensor that has the matching signal output online and voila, you could have fixed that by just prying it open which was genius! I hope you see this, you can add this skill to your repertoire!

    Ray, your choice in short color astonished me. I avoid such colors in this line of work.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thomas lyon says:

    Was that one of fords better ideas

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RadioReprised says:

    Some people have resorted to cutting the box and plastic welding it back to get in!

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Millhollon says:

    That's what she said.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Turner says:

    Insane how the truck was engineered. I replaced the same part in a Japanese truck in 15 minutes and 20 bucks for the part.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Yowe Kemos says:

    I have been watching from part 1 of this video since I have been captured by your channel lately.

    If this job was sent back to the manufacturer, no one would have have been willing or able to do it 🙄.

    Thumps up man. 👍

    The design engineer should be fired and de-registered for such a crabby design which makes it millions of times difficult for repair jobs.

    You have a natural gift with car repairs and maintenance. Not every mechanic has that.

    Blessings 🙌. 👏

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob Johnson says:

    997 fasteners yeah 997 gotta go to Kmart . Kmart may suck but not your videos ……… click

    Companies are emptying our pockets in the name of technology and advancement.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars VB says:

    That is shame on Ford for wasting so much tech for a sensor, how ridiculous and I will never buy a Ford because of this disgraceful waste of resources and money.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Denny J says:

    Nice job Ray! Can't believe the complexity of that dash! I had to take the dash apart in a 73 Satellite to retrieve a kitten hiding in the air ducts. She kept moving farther in. Complete disassembly took 2 hrs, same to reassemble. Kitten was fine too!

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Gingrich says:

    All totaled: the most expensive AC overhaul in history.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Micheal Zern says:

    I have been watching your videos for awhile and have found myself either thinking or saying click when I drive in a fastener.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Johansson says:

    Live it to the engineers.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Benjamin Brattin says:

    And this right here… This, is exactly why I refuse to buy new… This is absolutely insane… Ray, I've watched your videos for a few months now, but this takes the cake man… Major kudos brother. Wow… 👊🏼👍🏼🤙🏼

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ED Harry says:

    Never buy one too hard to repair!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Johnson says:

    Pitty some person that buys a nice used Ford thinking all it needs is a little refrigerant. I stopped working on cars when you needed a computer to talk to the car's computer. When to HVAC instead, yep now you need a computer to communicate with the HVAC system.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jean Meslier says:

    Another example of Ford's exemplary engineering. I bought new Fords in 1963. Falcon,, good basic car. In 1968, Mustang convertible (hey the year I got a divorce). Still mostly leftover Falcon parts, but a good basic car. I put a lot of miles on both of them. Add airbags, seatbelts and a little body reinforcement and I would drive them today. Then cometh 1980. Ford's platform than included the Thunderbird, and a Mercury. Several of us bought the T-bird and some the Mercury. One Mercury owner had to have the car towed back to the dealer before she got home with it. One guy had the T-bird had 300 miles on it. It had never been driven anywhere but from the dealers to his house. The only thing good about the T-bird was good gas mileages and it ran on Shell gasahol really good, but no other brand. The service manager of where I bought the car, after the third dash replacement assured me that the electronic gas gauge was no indication of the fuel in the tank.
    I don't remember what year it was, but Ford didn't build a pick up that year. The prior one ton extended cab models had a tendency to break half in two. Then their problem with the porous engine castings. Then a couple of years Ford vehicles had a tendency to burn all by themselves.
    The T-bird and that platform had a transmission problem. If the transmission was in overdrive and a panic stop was initiated, the engine died.
    It happened to me on the Interstate surrounded by semis and a Greyhound bus. A car magazind asked Ford about it. Ford replied that no recall would be made because only 1 something fatalities would ensue in 100,000 panic stops. Sheesh, I'm sure I have the figures wrong, but it was 1980 and my meds haven't took hold. When I read that article the next day after work I wholesaled the car to get rid of it. It wouldn't start when they came to get it. Had to have it towed to the dealer.
    Ford Motor Credit claimed I missed a payment. I sent a replacement check. Eighteen months later the bank called me. When I sold the car Ford Motor Credit sent the original check in for payment. My banker stamped it with a large sloppy NON NEGOTIOBLE across the face of the check.

    Need I tell you I finished with Ford in 1980.

    This video made me tired!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Wilson says:

    I was a big Ford fan until I saw this!!!!! Most impressive video Ray has put out for us to see. Your the man Ray! Awesome

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Edward says:

    I whoodof seen if you can cut a hole wright in front of the sencer put 2hinges on it and a lock and to seal wear the cut is silicone or type it to seal the cut Ford should of put a door for that sensor that's too much work to go through for One sensor I would have suggested doing that to the airbox and talk to the customer about that because you don't see any of that part when you're sitting in the truck all that's hidden

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rua2j33 says:

    I had to do the same job on a 99 Durango. I replaced the heater core and evaporator core. It took me 8 hours. A year later the heater core started leaking again, so I had to repeat the whole job a second time. Ugh

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Mouse says:

    … watching all that malarkey that sooo frikin annoying… how you kept it together I don't know… if you thinking of buying a Ford product, think again

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Raymond Rothstein says:

    I would have literally put a resistor on the connector to signal to make it come within in range thru the spectrum

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shaun Brown says:

    I wouldn't even attempt anything like that, very well done Ray

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars D3M0ify says:

    Another bad Ford!! Awesome video Ray

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Donovan says:

    I hate this so much. Is this how it goes when owning a Ford truck? I have 3 friends that own newer Ford trucks and they have had a buffet of issues. This makes me sad, what a waste!
    Fine work Ray, you probably needed a hug after all that. hahahaha

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LTP Ma says:

    Manufactured only paid labor 6.0 I hope you get 12.0 or 15.0 cp, dash is alway a headaches , back in early 90’s I have a fund of doing a lot of dash removing . Because all the tech hate this jobs or electrical problems

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charles Campbell says:

    So that flap behind the dash that you said you couldn’t think of why it’s there is for you to mount the dash cluster

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Duncan says:

    Great videos rae for the life of me I don't know you knew where everything went back, if that was me I would have a pail full of bits and bobs left, keep them coming rae. 👍👍👍

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars neo says:

    Sounds like a right to repair problem. Typical forced merchandising.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hans Jansen says:

    I tried viewing on full screen but I get motion sickness when you keep moving the camera with it on your head. LOL

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BuzzLOLOL says:

    Rock auto may sell this small part for $36…

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rahva Vaenlane says:

    That looks like HELL. Car design needs to go through a cycle of some serious simplification. Dash should open with couple of buttons.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars K. Kristian Jonsson says:

    This is just insane. The construction and design is an insult to an innocent car buyer and owner. Just a sensor.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Second Fleet Actual says:

    I am lovin that 70s porn music

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John LaCroix says:

    WOW very interesting super kool ,1st class great info.,, AAAAAAAAAAA++++++++++++ again great video I liked it a lot ,keep up the great work.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cynicallad Very says:

    Gee, My vocabulary had at least 100 extra words straight out of the Military that would of been over used If I had to to this..Your patience is astounding.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeff Schaaf says:

    So what did he do about the plastic tube that fell under the truck?

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars MrMustangMan says:

    what a nightmare.!!!! 🥵😡🤬

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Finnall says:

    Did customer get approved with Ford Motor Credit to pay for the repair charges?

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Davis says:

    Put all the parts in a pile and burn it–this is insane and junk made with poor engineering. I refuse to buy this new crap.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Artic Air Refrigeration says:

    I would never remember where all the bolts and nuts went back
