Good afternoon, I hope you are doing well today. My name is***** am a Ford technician and would be happy to assist you with this.

So it sounds to me like we have either a battery issue, or starter solenoid issue, more than likely based off what you have described I think we may have a bad battery. Do you have access to a battery charger that we can get put on it? If the battery gets charged/jumped and the truck still will not start then we need to test the starter relay/circuit. Let me know if you are able to charge the battery :)

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.
