Hi, my name is Jay

Look in engine compartment fuse box and look at fuse F27 to see if it is blown and there is heat damage to the socket. It may look a little brown where it got hot? If it is there is a relocation kit that needs installed. Check this and let me know what you see?

Ask Your Own Ford Question

Here is technical bulletin for fuse relocation if you find it blown and socket got hot and looks burnt.

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.
