Customer Question
Down hill fault on...

Down hill fault on the dash, blowmotor not coming on and electric steering assist is not working. It happened all at once

Mechanic's Assistant: How long has this been going on?

Parked it running fine, started it a week later and immediately

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

2013 f150 echo boost

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

All I have tried is unplugging the battery for an hour, trying to reboot the computer. Nothing changed

Fuse 52 is the fuse box under the hood goes to both the blower motor and the power steering control module. Check that fuse and make sure it's not blown.

Thank you for the VIN. Please double check it, it is one digit short.

First though, check fuse 52 under the hood.

Fuse is good
Ford Mechanic: Michael, Ford Senior Master Technician replied 3 months ago

Do you have a volt meter and the ability to use it?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Nope
Ford Mechanic: Michael, Ford Senior Master Technician replied 3 months ago

When you checked the fuse did you remove it and inspect the socket for burns and loose pins?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
all looked good. Also if I start wit remote it will not turn off with key. Have to use remote to turn back off
Ford Mechanic: Michael, Ford Senior Master Technician replied 3 months ago

Unfortunately without a volt meter I'm not sure what you can check to further isolate the concern. I'm going to opt out to see if another expert can assist you.

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.
