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.

The Ford super duty in 2001 did not anti-theft PATS. It was not an option till 2008, and then it was only an option, not standard. It was not standard until 2010. The 2001 does not use coded keys either. If there is a theft system then it is something that has been installed aftermarket, not by Ford.

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris

when we bought ford had this on there, it looks like an arrow head devise and when you put the key in and turn it part way you have to wait till the light goes out on the dash then you can turnover the engine, but the light does not come on?
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 4 months ago

Are you sure the light you are referring to is not the wait to start glow plug light?

Here is a picture of your cluster, where is the light you are referring to? https://www.dropbox.com/s/8d3776ic5jwsi9j/dieselclsuter.pdf?dl=0

the wait to start light
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 4 months ago

See if fuse 30 under the dash is blown If so unplug the fuel heater in the bottom of the filter housing and try another fuse.

Do these diagnostic steps if needed https://www.dropbox.com/s/cfex4hidbtyuack/WTS.png?dl=0

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
