Customer Question
2011 expedition, won't start...

2011 expedition, won't start, battery is dead, and the check brake system warning is on for some reason

Mechanic's Assistant: Did you test the battery with a voltmeter? And have you ever changed one before?

It's on a charger now, load test shows its pullong less than 8 amps

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Expedition yourself? What have you tried so far?

It's sunday, I don't have an option really... I tried turning it over after 20 minutes on the charger, it tried once and died again. I was going to let the charger take it to 100% then see if I could get it running

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I had the oil changed this week, they say they put in the normal 7 quarts, but it is full to the second hole on the dipstick

Is this the original factory battery?
It will have a black label and a small sight glass with either a red or green dot in it?

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
