Customer Question
I have a 2007...

I have a 2007 Ford Econoline Van. Was outside last night and noticed that the interior lights were blinking on and off and the car was buzzing/beeping. No key in ignition. All door were closed and locked. There is no alarm on the vehicle.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

It had been drizzling all day. Don't know how long this has been happening.

no what do you recommend
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I disconnected that battery last night so it wouldn't run down. So I suspect the faults would be lost.
Ford Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 years ago

if the problem comes back, the faults will return. I would at least take it to a shop and have them check it for you. a parts store will not be able to access this module

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.

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
