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!

So I have a test flow chart for that is you have a multimeter and are pretty proficient in electrical testing you will be able to find out what the issue is

I'm a ase-certified Technician and work for Federal Express I've been working on this vehicle for the last 2 weeks I drove it 100 miles today got ready to back up to the Gas Pump and no reverse I have a Solus scanner hooked to the vehicle everything seems to be working fine got ready to back up to the gas pump no reverse wrench light on the dash I know that it's electrical I just can't find it what's most common on these Ford's is what I'm looking for I know the plug in the top of the transmission that hooks to the solenoids the air conditioning drains down in it and corrodes it but I haven't found anything yet I've looked at that

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
