2000 ford turn key off & on resets
Ford Mechanic: jim, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
You will need to have the computer scanned for codes. Once we have the codes from the computer, we can isolate the problem from there. Alot of auto parts stores like Autozone will do this for free. You can also buy a cheap code reader from most auto part stores and read the codes yourself. Once you have the codes send them to me.

DO YOU NEED HELP ?

Ford Mechanic: jim, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
If the service engine light came on, there is a code stored in the computers memory. That code needs to be retrieved, as explained in earlier answer. Without that code, we can not help in isolating the problem.

there is no code
Ford Mechanic: jim, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 years ago
If there is no code, there is nothing I will be able to help you with, I will re open your question and maybe another Tech can help.

Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.I will try my best to help you with your question.

 

New Expert here. The best way is to test the system when the light is on. If the system resets when the key is off, then you will have to run it till the light comes back on. How are you testing the system for a code?

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
