Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.Lines across the odometer screen suggest the powertrain control module is not communicating with the instrument cluster. Check the ground in front of the left strut tower under the air box, if loose, or heavily corroded, repair ground and retest. Let me know if that dont do it and we can move on.

Ford Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 3 years ago
Sorry. I meant check it for voltage. Did you check the ground I told you to check?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
yes the battery is showing 13v
Ford Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 3 years ago
You likely have a shorted out sensor or a bad PCM. It doesnt sound like it is within your ability to test.

My answer will cost you only 38 $ .have a great day .
Ford Mechanic: Wayne Crawford, Shop Owner replied 3 years ago
The answer doesnt cost you anything until you rate my service. My limitations dont keep us from getting to an answer. I have not been able to drag out of you what the voltage is at the throttle position sensor therefore I cant give you an answer.

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.
