I recently had oil change and repair to my cruise control
. They first replaced the brake
switch and said that did not fix and that the PCM needed replaced. Of course it turned out to be the highest price that they quoted for part. Two days later I am driving home on the highway and cruise turns off and motor stops. I still had power to fan and dash. I noticed battery light was on. I tried to restart but it would not. After about 20 minutes while waiting for tow truck I tried again and truck started.
JA: Have you tested the battery? Have you tried testing the alternator
Customer: I drove for 20+ miles and it did it again only I noticed the oil can in display as well this time. I pulled over and truck started back immediately and I was able to drive to dealership another 15 miles. I have not but batteries were replaced this last year.
JA: What is the model of your '15 Ford?
Customer: 2010 Ford F250 Lariat Super Duty
JA: Are you fixing your F250 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: no just trying to do a bit of research prior to having conversation with dealership. Why all of sudden after I get truck back did this problem appear.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
