a mechanic cut a wire on my steering colum on 1999 ford f150 he said to by pass anti theft truck still wont start could it be fuel pump truck has set for 3 months lost only key
Lost only key a mechanic said he could by pass antitheft so my slave key would start truck. Now that hes got wire cut on steering colum truck still wont start he says its the fuel pump?????? Im so frustrated by all this need some expert input please and thank you
Cutting wires is NOT the solution. That's for darn sure. Seriously doubt it's a fuel pump problem, he has screwed around with the immobilizer -- anti theft system - and now has opened a can of worms that won't go back in. Is this a real mechanic? in a shop that has been there a while? Or some dude that calls himself a mechanic with no credentials? Let's work from there
Im thinking now he said he was ford certified but PROBABLY Not. I m in Farmington NM and theres not any mechanics I have found that are trust worthy and honest. Im looking at a big repair cost aren't I
You might be, looking at a rather big bill that is...unless you can find a place...even bite the bullet and go to a dealer, that can splice whatever he cut. Unless he really tore it apart. If it was as simple as cutting a wire, what good would the whole system be? Then anybody could cut one wire and steal the truck? Doesn't work that way. Sorry to be such a downer Brenda... this is a thing that you might have to pay up front to get it fixed then sue his ass to recover. Please please tell me he gave you a receipt, work order, something on paper. For the record, I don't usually suggest lawsuits, I have never sued anybody in my life, so you understand that I don't jump in to the legal system on a whim. But you have a legitimate case.
