It is a 2010...

It is a 2010 Ford fusion. Two days ago the power steering light came on where the odometer is. I restarted it and it went off and ran fine. Yesterday it wouldn't start and a padlock light was on. I restarted it and it runs fine

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

I just bought it in December so it had a good check

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

No noises

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

No I don't work on my car myself

It states up just fine now with no warning lights

Do you have access to a scan tool to see if the prior events stored codes?

Are you there?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I don't work on it myself. Just want a diagnosis if possible

If you recall from the prior events.

When it would not start would it at least crank and was the lock light flashing rapid while trying to start?

It already deducted it I checked

Best I can do with the information you gave me. The battery voltage could be low, the PATS transceiver could be failing, a power steering control module sensor could be going bad.

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
