Customer Question
I have a 2005...

I have a 2005 Ford Explorer. I tried to replace the non working cigarette lighter. I originally had power but I accidently touched the live wire to a negative. Thinking I blew a fuse I replaced the 15 amp fuse and now it won't start but turns over and there is no electric guages, etc.

Mechanic's Assistant: Most vehicles have two fuse panels. Have you located both?

No only the driver's side.

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

So I need to find the other fuse panel?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
It is not the fuses under the dash. Which fuse under the hood is likely to shut the power off in the vehicle? The door locks and the engine turns over but won't start.
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No.

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 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.
