Check F 31 and see if it is blown. Do you need a diagram of the fuse box so you know what fuse is what?

i have checked and replaced all fuses with description of radio, lamps or power. it must be a relay. also checked relay 2.
Ford Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 11 months ago

The relays do not operate the lights, radio or the third brake light. Do you have a digital volt meter and a test light so we can do some testing to find your problem?

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.
