Hello and welcome! My name us Amedee and I can assist you with your question. Does the check engine light come on with the key on? Does it go off while cranking? What size engine do you have?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
My check engine light does not come on none of lights come on. fire is getting to the battery. The fuse box has been changed.when I turn the key the lights on the inside does not light up.
Ford Mechanic: AMEDEE, FORD TECHNICIAN replied 2 years ago

If the check engine light does not come on with the key on, the computer is not awake and the engine will not start.

Ok. how do I get the computer to respond or do I need another computer
Ford Mechanic: AMEDEE, FORD TECHNICIAN replied 2 years ago

Sorry for the delay! If the computer is not awake with the key on, you need to check all powers and grounds going into the computer with the key on. This includes all powers from ALL FUSES, fusible links and even the ignition switch.

I would start by checking all fuses

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.
