Which engine do you have in this?

Do you have a test light so we can do some testing?

ok thanks
Ford Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 1 year ago

Looks like the fuel pump relay gets some of the power from the PCM. Check fuse #20 in the battery fuse box and check fuse #105 in the same box. Fuse #20 should only get power with the key on or while cranking. Fuse 105 is for the start interupt relay, so make sure the security light is going out after 3 seconds with the key on.

let me know when you can.

You're welcome, remember, we are looking for power on fuse 20, not just that it's good.

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
