Customer Question
Replaced fuel pump ran...

Replaced fuel pump ran for three days and now no power, turn signal switch was faulty (arm came out and high beam lights will not turn off) replaced turn signal assembly will start but shuts down and no power to anything, jump start will run but stalls out and again no power.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

Consistent, runs less than a minute stalls out and then no electrical power

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

2004, f-150 4.6 2wd

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Fuel pump was burned at pump connection-replaced, turn signal turn arm was loose and fell out-replaced, alt reads 14 volts when running

Are you saying the engine cranks but does not start due to no power to the fuel pump or are you saying it starts but then stalls due to no power to the fuel pump?

Have you checked for codes in the computer?

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.
