Customer Question
I have a 2004...

I have a 2004 mustang and was wiring some lights and every thing went dead but the thief light is flashing. What can I do to fix this?

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, can you tell me which light it is? And does it blink first, then stay on steady?

Just the thief light is flashing

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

Yes I am... Leaving the key on and removing the battery cables.

It is possible you have blown a fuse. Have you checked the fuses under the hood and inside the car?

What Customers are Saying:

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

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
