No power to the...

No power to the starter motor

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Consistent

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2001 F250. Ignition turns on other things, like fan motor, but won't power the starter motor

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F250 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. Have checked fuses, battery connections, and neutral switch on the transmission. Truck will start when bypassing switch, hotwired directly from battery

Motor is 5.4 liter

At the starter relay is the small tan/red wire and terminal showing power with the key held in the start position?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Don't see a small tan/red wire and terminal. Where is it? Are the relays in the fuse box?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Or next to the battery?

The starter relay is mounted to the passenger fender

Thanks for your help. I'm signing off.

You are welcome, keep in touch if needed.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

Phone call session started
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I received a message stating that you could not respond by phone. I ended the conversation. I received a phone message several hours later after taking my car to a shop. I never actually spoke to anyone on the phone therefore I don't believe I should be charged for a phone call.

Contact the website and they will address the phone call fee. Do you need more help diagnosing the starting system?

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.

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
