Daytime Running Light System
(Canadian vehicles only)
In Canada, the lights illuminate during daytime
operation. The Daytime Running Light system
(DRL) automatically illuminates when the
ignition switch is turned to the ON position. The
daytime running lights are switched off under
the following conditions:
when the headlamps are switched on
when the parking brake is applied
when the flash-to-pass system is used
WARNING
The Daytime Running Light (DRL) system
will not illuminate the tail lamps and
parking lamps. Turn on your headlamps
at dusk. Failure to do so may result in a
collision.
Raising the Headlamps Manually
If the power headlamp door system becomes
inoperative, your vehicle has a manual retractor
system that allows you to raise the headlamps
manually (the headlamps will not turn on). The
retractors are located under the hood and behind
each headlamp. Remove the cap and turn the
knob. Each headlamp must be raised separately.
Before using the manual retractors to raise your
headlamps, the RETRA fuse must be removed.
64
Open the main fuse panel. Refer to the
underhood fuse panel in
Servicing Your Probe
later in this owner guide. Pull the RETRA (20A)
fuse straight out.
Inspect the removed fuse. If it is blown, replace
it with a new one of the same rating. If it isn’t
blown or if a new fuse does not solve the
problem, remove it and operate the headlamp
manually.
WARNING
Always remove the RETRA (20A) fuse
before manually operating a headlamp
retractor or attempting to remove anything
from the headlamp. Failure to remove the
RETRA fuse could cause injury to a hand
or fingers.
WARNING
When reinstalling the RETRA fuse, make
sure nothing is near the headlamp
retractor. It may move suddenly while the
fuse is being inserted, causing injury to
hands and fingers.

on or near the air bag covers that may
come into contact with an inflating air
bag. Failure to follow these instructions
may increase the risk of personal injury in
the event of a collision.
R
WARNING
Do not attempt to service, repair, or
modify the air bag Supplemental Restraint
System or its fuses. See your Ford or
Lincoln-Mercury dealer.
R
WARNING
If you are close to an inflating air bag, it
could seriously injure you. Position your
seat such that it is as far back from the
steering wheel as possible but still allows
you to properly control the vehicle.

NOTE:
Your vehicle’s gearshift lever is
securely latched in P (Park) if you
cannot move it without pushing in the
thumb button. Keep the brake pedal
depressed while moving your gearshift
lever.
To make the system more effective, the ignition
key cannot be removed unless the gearshift
selector lever is in the P (Park) position.
Shift lock emergency override
If the gearshift selector lever should fail to move
from the P (Park) position with the brake pedal
depressed, continue depressing the brake pedal.
1.
Remove the shift lock override cover with a
screwdriver.
2.
Insert the screwdriver into the shift lock
override opening and push the screwdriver
down.
3.
Push and hold the thumb button.

Move the shift selector lever.
If you need to shift out of P (Park) by using the
alternate procedure described above, it is
possible that a fuse has blown and that your
brakelamps may also not be functional. Please
refer to the chapter titled
Roadside Emergencies
in
this Owner Guide for instructions on checking
and replacing fuses.

If your engine cranks but does not start after a
collision or substantial jolt:
1.
Turn the key in the ignition to the LOCK
position.
2.
Check under the vehicle for leaking fuel.

switch down.
The reset switch on your vehicle is located on
the left side of the luggage compartment
under the carpet. The red reset button is
under the raised area of the rubber cover.

Attempt to start your vehicle. If the vehicle
starts, let it run a few seconds, then turn the
key to the LOCK position.

Check under the vehicle again for leaking
fuel.
If you see or smell fuel, do not start
your vehicle again.
If you do not see or
smell fuel, you can try to start your vehicle
again.
Fuses
If electrical parts in your vehicle are not
working, the system may have been overloaded
and blown a fuse. If a fuse blows, all the parts
of your vehicle that use the fuse will not work.
Your vehicle has two fuse panels. The interior
fuse panel is below the instrument panel in front
of the driver’s door. The main panel is under
the hood behind the battery.

WARNING
Always replace a fuse with one that has
the specified amperage rating. Using a
fuse with a higher amperage rating can
cause severe wire damage and could start
a fire.
To find a fuse’s amperage rating, check the
number on the fuse or check the color.
Even after you replace a fuse, it may continue to
blow if you do not find what caused the
overload. If the fuse continues to blow, have
your electrical system checked.
Changing a Tire
If you get a flat tire while you are driving, do
not apply the brake heavily. Instead, gradually
decrease the speed. Hold the steering wheel
firmly and slowly move to a safe place on the
side of the road. Park on a level spot, turn off
the ignition, set the parking brake, and turn on
the hazard flashers.
