Ford Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

I want you to pull fuse number 5, 9, 19 and 29. and see if any of those are blown. Does that sound like something you can check? thank you.

Ok I got it. Now if I can find how to open the fuse box to check it out

It's the interior fuse panel on the driver side inside the vehicle, have you located it yet?

Thank You. I will try it myself then.
Ford Mechanic: Edward, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

Alright, let me know if it's just a blown fuse, pull the fuse and see if any of those that I numbered are blown and the legend of fuse numbers is in the manual there on pages 275 276 and 277. Let me know what you find there. thank you.

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
