2005 Crown Vic police interceptor

Asked by Apr 11, 2014 at 01:37 PM about the 2005 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our son was driving down the road & the car died. A mechanical good Samaritan
stopped to see if he could help. He reset the fuel pump shut off (which had been
tripped), but that didn't solve the problem. Battery is good... Any suggestions? Does
Ford have a built in self diagnostic? (on my Dodge, if you turn the key rapidly on, off,
on, off , on, without actually starting the engine, it will run a diagnostic & display codes
or done on the odometer. Wasn't sure if Fords have something similar?) Thanks!

Is the CEL or SES light on the dash? If so, there are codes stored and while you can turn the key and have thecodes flash like your old Dodge, you scan them yourself using a $25 scan tool or have your local auto parts store do it for free. Post the 4 digit code back here and we can point you in the right direction.

Lmfao if the fuel pump shut off was tripped that would mean he spun out or the car jerked violently. Probably just blew a 50A fuse I bet. I had that happen and ended up towing the car when I could’ve just taped some wiring that happened to be chafing on the metal frame of the car from a previous accident.

And no they don’t have a diagnostic you just have to take it to the shop or autozone to borrow a code scanner.
