2004 ranger, radio power...

2004 ranger, radio power windows and windshield wipers quit today as I was driving

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Do you know if there is power to the wiper motor?

Wiper fuse is good radio fuse bad and blows when new one installed

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

I hope to, have checked all fuses in kick panel and under hood

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
