Re: Really Upset, Please Help
Hey Guys, For You That happen To Have the Same Kind Of Problem I Did, I Found A Answer That Could Help You Save Alot Of Money At A Dealership.. Other Shops Wouldn't Touch It Because They Said It Was A Ford Problem And They Needed To Look At It. Well Ford Is Really Expensive!!! So I Am Going To Post The Info I Found Out And I Hope It Helps Some One In THere Similar Problems.. Here It Goes, You really need to check the voltage on those fuses during the failure. Im not a betting man but I would bet that you will find the voltages lower than battery volts.That would indicate a bad ignition switch which is becoming all top common theses days.Your radio turning on when the truck is turned off gives evidence to my statement.Your cluster will not work properly with a bad ignition switch. ( Ford Told Me It Could Be My Main Computer And It Would Be About 2000.00 To Fix ) But I Told Them About The Lower Voltage Problem Whith Lead Them To THe Ignition ) Saved A Ton Of Money..... I Guess This Voltage Problem Is Becoming A Commen Problem in Fords.... Hope This Helps.......
