I think i have a locked security system on ford f(###) ###-####

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has this ever happened before?

165000 never to me.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your E150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I pulled the ground wire off of the battery for 15 minutes, turned the key to on and put the ground back,... did not work.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Plenty of power in battery, when I turn the key to on the mileage window is all blank squares

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
