Customer Question

Hi Pearl,
JA: What is the model/year of your Ford?
Customer: 1998 F150 3 door, 4x4
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No, want a mechanic unless the problem is an easy fix. I have no power, no gauges, no windows, etc. The battery is new and the fluids are fine.
JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?
Customer: Consistent. No power at all. I tried to start it and heard what sounded like a "pop". Then I had no power at all.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello and thank you for your question,

If you take your 12 volt test light and or a volt meter and check the fuses in the under hood fuse panel, do any of them have power?
