Question about 2003 Ford E250
I'll try to keep this short. 2003 Ford van, auto, dual air, will not start (won't do anything). My mechanic checked the battery (fairly new). All fuses are ok, being used, it looks as though the starter has been replaced before (has 50000 on van). Lights work, lift works, turn signals stopped working before shutting the van off at church. When releasing the brake, before leaving for church, the brake light stayed on. Van ran fine to church but when coming out to leave it would not do anything. I checked the linkage before having it towed to our maintenance shop...it was also ok....any thoughts?.....my shop after looking for 3 days have given up....HELP PLEASE!....tks
Electrical problems are always the hardest to troubleshoot, that's why your shop could not find anything, they had not searched long enough, or looking in the wrong place. The shop may have checked the starter,solenoid,battery,relay( if equipped with), and then they gave up. It may be the ignition switch,or ignition safety switch( if equipped with ) there is almost always a way to bypass electrical equiptment to check if it is the problem. These test should be performed in the proper manner. You may need a new shop, to handle your electrical problems.
