Ask Your Own Ford Question

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Ok, the relays are back. The main headlight works. The turn indicators and running lights do not. The brake lights only come on when the brake is pressed.

ok, now we are getting somewhere.

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.
