My name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your question today.

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made. No rate, site gets it all.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

After an accident that causes computer damage like this, the entire engine harness should have been replaced as well as the dash if the damage went that far. Since that wasn;t done, then the harness will need to be gone through step by step.

On the engine not rotating like it should, check the battery cables and maybe replace them as well as grounds. Hopefully there is no engine damage with pinching and that is why engine rotates slower.

On the lights, when the computer was replaced, was the vehicle fully programmed at Ford after? If not, have that done first for that could take care of the dash lights issue.


You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service. Please consider that I don't know your skill level as well as I can't see,

touch, smell, hear the vehicle/machine in question. Please provide as much detail as possible and I will provide as much back.

Once an answer is provided, you should see a rating screen. Please rate my personal service to you. The ratings are my personal feedback,

they are not the site feedback.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you through Just Answer!
