Dashboard still no lights.

Did a radio swap today.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is this an aftermarket stereo, or did it come with the car?

Aftermarket ( sony xplod) popped a fuse. Replaced the fuse and now there isn’t any lights coming on when I turn the ignition on. Engine doesn’t crank either. Checked fuses and relays. All seems in order. Just the ignition problem now

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

Ford figo 2013

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

Yes. Checked all fuses and relays. Disconnected the battery and reconnected. Still nothing. Only lights thats on is the odo meter and the anti hi***** *****ght

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

I think that’s it

Done. Original radio coming on. Asking for a key code.
Problem for the dash remains the same
Ford Mechanic: David Craig, Auto Mechanic replied 7 months ago

unfortunately, we are not allowed to give out codes any longer per Just Answer due to liability issues. You will need to contact your local dealer and they will be more than happy to help you as long as you provide proof of ownership. Thank you.

Well, you could’ve just said check the side of the glove box. ‘Coz it’s printed on a sticker there.
So i got the right code and the radio works.
Dashboard still no lights.

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
