Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

  • Although I work here everyday, please understand it is not all day and rarely morning time.
  • To get the most from me and the best experience, please give me the best details you can.
  • The website will offer you a phone call option for more $$. Some I do fulfill and some I do not.
  • Thanks, let's get started. If I upload dropbox links, without the app use the box in the top right for direct download.

Did you use a programmer to trick the computer that the DPF is still on the vehicle?

DO you have a scan tool to see which codes are stored?

No I didn't trick the computer
I have a code reader but not sure how to use it
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I just want to know how to unlock the ignition so I can start my truck!
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Are you still there?
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 11 months ago

You will need to first off reassemble the truck back to stock. You cannot remove things designed to be there without doing things to the computer to make it think those parts are still installed. So first off you need to remove both negative battery cables, reinstall the DPF and plug in all the sensors. Reconnect the batteries and try to start and if it fails let me know what codes are stored.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

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.

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.
