Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site.you blew a freeze plug in the what?
are the fuses inside or under the hood?
ok, so theres no power to them, please standby
ok please standby, this is going to take a few
ok here are 4 of the 5 fuses, the reason its not starting is because of the transmission range sensor fuse getting no power.
They dont have power either?
if you blew a freeze plug in the rear of the engine, you had coolant spill on a few components that im sure is causing the power loss to those fuses. this is going to take some doing here.
please give me some time
19 is being powered by the ignition switch
and the ignition switch is getting powered by this fuse
25 is also being power through the ignition switch
absolutely can be wiring. but, was the vehicle starting before the freeze plug blew?
ok, if it happened when driving, its not going to be a wiring problem unless the wiring shorted out from getting wet and melted and took out a major fuse under the hood which is what i think happened
you need to check fuse 105 under the hood
hot at all time
all of those fuses that you said didnt have power to them, did you check them with the key on?
yes it gets power from the battery bus you should be able to see if the fuse is blown by looking through the top.
does the theft light go out when cranking the engine?
then its not anti theft problems
do you have rpms when cranking?
theres a large red wire that goes into the fuse box from the battery. that wire is attached to the battery bus which feeds all of the main fuses
ok, you're welcome
hows it going?
ok, if you have power to 105 and its good, check power to 30 of the starter interrupt relay. if its not there then you have an open wire between fuse 105 and ignition switch or the relay
sure, please give me a few while I help 2 other customers. thanks
