Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 11 months ago

Ok, if it was fine prior to messing with the fuse panel then it has to be either a poor connection or bent pin in one of the fuse box connectors. Or the fuse box itself. its all related to this box. Make sure every connector is fully seated and the pins arent bent inside or damaged.

You are welcome, if you need more help please let me know. If I was helpful, please leave a positive rating. if the fuse panel looks ok, a local locksmtih can come and check and reprogram new pats keys if needed.

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.
