Customer Question
2013 F 150...

2013 F 150 wont fire up and run it will turn over when I try to start it but wont fire;

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

1st time i happened it was in garage 54 degrees so it wasn't cold. we opened the door where you put in the gas and gave it some air and then it started and ran good for a couple of days. then it quit at church yesterday, I had it towed to auto shop, and they don't seem to know whats you either

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '13 Ford?

Battery is like new we had it check it was firing at 14

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

No I am a girl

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

I am trying to find out what it could be so I don't get ripped off I called the dealer where I bought it they had never heard of such a thing

the fuel pump should buzz when the ignition key is first turned on for a few seconds and then stay on when running.

It is possible the fuse box terminal is melting and cause a voltage drop and possible the fuse has finally blown. The dealership will be able to look this up and the fix is not hard. Fuse 27.

Thank you so much for your help I believe that I started out with you and when you declined the phone call than the next guy picked up so that’s how I got double charged I think I did contact my bank to stop payment until I get it figured out so I will call the security answer company and see if we can straighten it out thank you so much you’re so kind and I appreciate all that you’ve done for me thank you very much
Ford Mechanic: Ironmike, Ford Technician replied 4 months ago

you are welcome. So you have 2 techs that say to check fuse 27 in the fuse box under the hood. The dealer has a repair for this issue. You might be able to replace the fuse and drive it to the dealer. thank you and good luck

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.
