Customer Question
The daytime running light...

The daytime running light do not switch off when you shut off the vehicle.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Headlights

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

2004 Escape

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

Pulled the headlight relay and the lights went out. Switched relay with another and the lights came back on and stayed on.

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

The Service engine light just recently came on, don't know if it's related????

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.
