Customer Question
Ford F150 Year 2013...
Ford F150 Year 2013 I have been able to determine the discharge is coming from Fuse 18:
Fuse 18 has a discharge of .19 on my battery, .01 is acceptable when the system is shut down. Fuse 18 covers "Brake-shift interlock, Key pad illumination, Powertrain control module wakeup, Passive anti-theft system.
Two trip to a Ford Garage here in Arkansas have not been able to locate the problem. Naturally the truck does not have the discharge when then are working on it.
They feel it might be the Brake-shift interlock.
How does one check the Brake-shift interlock system????????????????????????

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.
