Customer Question
Drove to gas station...

Drove to gas station. Filled tank. Now electrical system is going crazy. Door locked on its own. Can't get in. All lights are on on dash without key in car. Key fob doesn't work.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

Hi. I can't get into the car.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Station?

2014 EDGE 53K miles

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

What do you mean by station?

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

That should do it.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

Have you tired using the physical key in the door?

I don't have the key. It's in the car.
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

well theres not a lot of options you can get a door unlock kit at the auto parts store and the jam bag thats pretty cheap, call a tow, call a lock smith or get the 2nd key

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.
