i have a 2000 ford ranger that i just bought with many issues. we will first start with the power window, the wipers, the speedometer, interior lights all do not work. i checked the fuse boxes inside and under the hood and all checked out fine. One thing i noticed is number 27 fuse is missing. i tried to put a fuse in the slot but it does not grab onto anything and just falls out. what can i do to fix this.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

We need to split up these concerns. There are 2 many on this post. Let's knock out 2 issues on this post and use your subscription to address 2 more on another post. Which 2 would you like to address here?

well they all have to do with fuse 27. there is no fuse 27 because the fuse terminal must be bad becuase the fuse just falls right out like there isnt anything for it to sit inside. How to i go about replacing the bad terminal
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 4 months ago

Ford has no directions for rebuilding a fuse box, they are just replaced.

number 27 is the only bad one. i pulled off the whole fuse box and behind it there are no wires even going to that slot nor are there any wires back there not connected.
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 4 months ago

What diagrams are you using that show fuse 27 is used and to blame for all issues. Mine show fuse 27 not used.

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.
