I have a 2003 ford expedition and the pcm power relay fuse…

Customer Question
I have a 2003...

I have a 2003 ford expedition and the pcm power relay fuse getting hot melting and blowing the fuse when I turn the truck off it won't start back until I replace the fuse then it starts & no problem for a few days sometimes weeks. Can you help me please?

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?

One hundred thousand miles, and yes till the fuse blows.

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

I'm trying to fix it myself, all I've done is change the fuse and was told at the part store my #1 lean was bad and I bought a o2 sensor to put on it, but haven't put it on yet.

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

That's all

Can you give me that actual number of the fuse that is blowing? Is it the #23 fuse?

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.

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.
