Question about 2003 Ford E250

1 Answer

Ford E-250 Handicap van will not turnover

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

    Does it have power, i.e. radio works, headlights, etc .. just when you try to turn it over it doesn't "crank"?

    What happens it you put it in neutral?

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.

2003 ford focus 2.3 litre DTC P2004 intake manifold runner control stuck open. What does it mean when it says shorted to VREF or signal circuit shorted open or shorted to VPWR.


code p 2004 refers to intake manifold air control actuator bank 1--actuator stuck open===causes --wiring--intake manifold air control actuator---mechanical fault
it also refers to intake manifold air control solenoid bank 1--solenoid stuck open=== causes --wiring---intake manifold air control solenoid---mechanical fault
reference auto data technical fault codes
I cannot find reference to the VREF or VPWR as they may be referenced in a ford workshop manual so you may have to ask a ford service person what they stand for but I suspect that they will come back to the same thing as listed in the causes

I think that if you have a carby system that I would be checking the auto choke operation. IF efi I would be running fault codes looking for sensor problems in the air intake area. Check the duel switch and ensure that there is not possibility of an air leak allowing fuel to drain back in the system as replacing the unit appears to be the start of your problem
