except I hadn't done it with putting the key to RUN-OFF-RUN. Redoing it like that, I get the initial light at off, one at resume and one at set/accel. I don't hear either the sharp noise or gear clicking.

ok, heres a wiring diagram of the system. use it as reference for checking the pin tests on the test.

All the fuses have power. Pin 6 has power, but pin 1 does not.

Ok please standby

Ask Your Own Ford Question

that wire should be hot all the time once the relay closes. how is that relay numbered? 30,87,86,85 or 1,2,3,5?

Fuse 12 definitely good. I'm not sure which relay is the right one. Is it on this picture I found? http://fusesdiagram.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/FordExpedition2-blok-kapotnew.jpg

Ok, I was looking at the two documents you sent again. The second one indicated Pin 1 should be hot at all times, but the first says only in run and start. When I tested earlier, it was with the key off. Testing it with the key in run, it has power.

so hows it going?

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.
