Intermittant electrical problem

Asked by Oct 10, 2012 at 09:30 AM about the 2007 Ford E-Series Cargo E-250

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We recently purchased a used 2007 E250 cargo van with 80+ miles from a dealer. After driving it for a week we have started to encounter this problem: seemingly at random all power to the dashboard goes out, radio cuts out, power windows do not work either, but the van keeps going. Then it all comes back on.  But then the van would not start a couple of times after being driven to a job site. Waited 15 minutes and then it started normally.

In many States, if the vehicle has 100,000 miles or more you are just SOL. But with 80,000, I would take it back to the dealer, if they want good customer relations they will help you. I assume it came with no warranty expressed or implied, unless you bought a service agreement from either the dealer or some other outfit that sell those. I bit the bullet and paid $2,500 for a service agreement on my Corolla, but that was bought from Toyota Motor of America. Other than factory service agreements, (notice I do not call it a warranty, it's NOT) most are worthless. My son got screwed by (I better not name the name of the company, I don't want backlash) but they did not honor the one he bought, an engine with 30,500 miles blew and they claim it was because he ran it without oil. He is a USAF F-16 fighter mechanic, he would not run a car w/o oil. Currently in litigation.

I have the exact same problem, sorry I do not have an answer. I checked all my fuses and relays, and no fix.

Seein' as how somehow this question resurfaced after 5 months. Phily must have been looking way back, now I will name names: Suzuki Motor Corp. of America. builds POS cars and do not honor warranties,

I have the same problem and my friend who is a mechanic said it's probably a grounding issue somewhere under the hood (possibly corroding ground connections. There are many branches to your ground
