Hey 2008 e150 seems to have lock me out from turn on

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your E150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I’m not trying to fix anything I left the key in the on position for a bad 10 minutes and came back out and I won’t turn on

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?

Yes the only light is on is the little lock with the auto off to the right

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

Just wanna know how to override the lock out

Hello and thanks for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will do all I can to help.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

Do you have a volt meter by chance? If so, lets make sure the battery is reading at least 12 volts. Do the headlights look bright? Also, if you don't have a volt meter, can you disconnect the battery negative cable for about 10 minutes, reinstall, close the hood and all the doors, lock and unlock the drivers door a few times with the key and then try it and let me know what happens.

Alright, are the headlights bright? does it look like the battery is charged up? it won't even crank at all correct?

I just hit the horn without the KEYN and my needles jiggled that’s all

You don't have a volt meter to check battery voltage by chance? Try a jump start if not. The battery could be really weak. I want to rule that out first.

Check the brake lights, see if they are bright. if not, battery is dead.

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.
