Customer Question
Just replaced a fuse...

Just replaced a fuse I blew and now m gauges don't work What did I do?

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

No just teh one at the kick panel

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

Had no issue until I blew the fuse for the dash power point it's a 2005 150XL 4x4

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

I replaced the blown fuse and checked others

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

Think that is it. Just baffled why none of the gauges won't work

There are several fuses in the interior fuse box that power up the instrument cluster. I would suspect either one of those fuses may be blown, or just not seated correctly. The fuse numbers are 1, 15, 21 and 27. I strongly recommend checking those fuses again to see if you can get your gauges working.

Have you checked the fuses I mentioned? Did you get the cluster working or do you need more info?

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.
