Customer Question
Truck parked in drive...

Truck parked in drive overnight. Had been running fine. Next morning when leaving the house the truck would not start. Horn works, blower fan comes on. Ignition switch does not make any noise when activated. Silence. Has nearly new battery but I charged it any way no change. Cables clean but I recleaned them....no change.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you changed a battery before?

Was done at Walmart and has been in the truck for four or five months with no problem

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

2004 f150 XL super crew 4x4 with 71,000 miles.

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

Other than charging and checking and cleaning cables nothing. I live on 11 acres 15 miles from nearest mechanic.

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

Have changed brake light module a year ago as truck would hang up in park. But this time will not start.

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.

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
