Customer Question
The engine will crank...

The engine will crank but will not start. The wait to start light does not come on when the key is in the start position. I’ve read Sean’s post above, but am unable to remove the cover of the fuse box?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the manual yet? Most vehicles have two fuse panels.

I have looked at the manual and I do have 2 fuse boxes. One inside dash and the other in engine compartment.

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

2000 F-350, 7.3 liter diesel with 190k.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F350 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Not by choice. It’s sitting in my driveway with a ton of oak firewood in it. Don’t think a tow is truck could get in here to tow it.

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

Not that I can think of, thanks.

The fuse box cover is just clipped on, nothing to remove to get it off. Just grab an edge and pull and it will pop right off. We need to fist of check fuse 22. Can you follow these steps as well https://www.dropbox.com/s/5l60gfww9tsfizq/WTS.png?dl=0

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.

BRNew Jersey
