  • 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.

Was this smoke under the dash or hood?

Can you see any signs of burning in this area?

Hood
Customer reply replied 20 days ago
I'm checking now to see if I can find any burns on a harness or connector. Or any wores off the bundles

Dies the HVAC blower, air flow direction, and air temp still work?

Are the wipers still working on there own?

Do the wipers work correctly when commanded?

Customer reply replied 19 days ago
The blower is not working the actuators for temp and control work but nothing else. The wipers stopped working all together since I removed the fuse and when they were on there was no command that worked on the switch
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 19 days ago

The blower relay is in the bussed electrical center under the hood. Any signs of damage there?

No
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 19 days ago

OKay lets just move on and diagnose the blower and see if that finds the issue.

Remove the blower relay. Is pin 87 powered, is pin 86 powered with the key on, is pin 85 grounded with the key on and the blower commanded on?

If you jump a wire from pin 87 to 30 does the blower run?

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.

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.
