Customer Question
Nothing is wrong....

Nothing is wrong. I bought illuminated kick plates and want tower them to the third break light dome wire

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?

What are you talking about

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2017 f150 crew cab lariat I want to tie in the illuminated kick plates to the dome light wire. The best way I have found to do this is to follow the 3rd break light dome wire.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I haven't tried anything yet It is not broken

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

Is this service free?

Mechanic's Assistant: The Ford Mechanics require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost.

No thank you

You want to wire the kick plates/sill pates to the 3rd brake light so they come on when the brake lights are on?
Or do you want to wire them to the dome light circuit?

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.
