Customer Question
2004 Ford f250 king...

2004 Ford f250 king ranch diesel 4wd 4 door. Cruising along at 65 and everything shuts down as if someone flipped a switch. Immediate shutdown. no electrical power, no lights, nothing. I'm assuming a fuse or ground but I'm no mechanic

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Ford. The Ford Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

If possible

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Ford Mechanic should be aware of about your Ford?

No. 225k mileage, automatic. It was running great until shutdown

Hi. Has power returned to your vehicle, or is there still no power to anything?

No power to anything.
Ford Mechanic: EricFromCT, Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Have you checked all the battery cables yet? Make sure they are tight and connected? And also do you have a test light to check for power?

Look I'm not totally ignorant. I've rebuilt motors, trannys axles blah blah. I know a little about electrical but I don't have schematics to trace fuse blocks, circuits etc. Both batteries have 12V each. Alternator has 12v going to it.

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.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
