Customer Question
I have a 201...

I have a 201 Ford Flex SE and I just tried to jump start it and it will not start. "starting system fault" popped up. we tried using the other key we have and It still will not start

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

2014 ford flex

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

It sounds like it wants to start. radio comes on and windows will go down without issue. waiting on a tow truck . it just happened this morning . it was fine yesterday. we have tried using a different key and jumping the car

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

I don't think so

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! Do you have a way of getting a new battery for the vehicle?

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.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
