2006 f350 6.0 radio,windows...

2006 f350 6.0 radio,windows instruments all intermittently work

Mechanic's Assistant: Is this your first time dealing with this issue?

Yes, it just started the other day, I can drive a while and its fine then radomly occurs

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

I looked for chaffed wires, I switched 601 relay with another

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

All fuses seem fine, i did not hear a click when i plug relay into 601, but heard click in a different socket

I would consider a faulty ignition switch, these are known to cause random systems to go offline like you are experiencing. Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.

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.
