The issue started about months ago but always resolved itself. If I try to start the car, nothing happens, the radio dosn"t come
on or any other electrical unit

no
Ford Mechanic: JContin, ford shop owner replied 3 years ago

This means that the computer is not powering up. Do you remember if before this issue you had a check engine light on at anytime ?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
No engine light at any time
Ford Mechanic: JContin, ford shop owner replied 3 years ago

The radio not turning on and the blower motor not turning on started at the same time as this issue ?

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.
