Customer Question

Hi I have a ba falcon ute. Was driving and suddenly had no power and the gear display was flashing. After pulling over I tried to take off again but again it lost power.
JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?
Customer: I guess consistent, I try to accelerate but there is nothing the engine will not even rev
JA: What year is your Falcon?
Customer: 2003
JA: Are you fixing your Falcon yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Am out of town and the only thing I have tried is shutting the car down and restarting. The first time I restarted I got about 500mtrs. The second time I used the performance mode and it seemed to go until I flicked it back to auto
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Would the fact that my speedo is also playing up affect it or be a side effect to the overall problem, plus I did notice a slight vibration when the transmission shifted to fourth gear.

Hi there,

We need to have a scan on the vehicle for codes set.

I would also have the battery and alternator checked.

Supercheap can do this asca service for you, about $15.
