Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I see that you have been waiting a while for an answer and will be glad to help. The radio and the shutting off issue will be two separate issues as they are not actually associated, circuit wise. Have you had the vehicle scanned for trouble codes yet?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
there are no trouble codes. this appears to be an electric issue that is stopping fuel flow. I say that because after dying at 55MPH and the engine still turning power came back on with no backfire.
Not trying to tell you your business, but I am a registered A&P mechanic.

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.

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
