Customer Question
2014 Ford Focus. Post...

2014 Ford Focus. Post collision repairs included a new steering column. Now have codes c1b00 and u0428

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?

Unsure if codes existed before repairs

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

Tried recalibration of angle sensor and snap on modi’s says calibration failed vehicle may not have this feature

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

I own a body shop and this is in for repairs

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.
