I am pissed

Ok so here comes the rant....

last week i took my truck in for some long overdue (on their part) service. I had some work done to it under warranty back in June. Ford broke a part and had to order one in....came in on the 5th of Nov. I picked the truck back up on friday and they had repaired more stuff it required under warranty. So everything is good right? WRONG...i drive it all weekend no probs....I drive to work this morning its all good. I go to leave work this aft and the truck won't start. It just keps cranking, the theft light is flashing quickly and when i pull the key back out, the gauges stay active as does the odometer.....this is not a normal thing for this truck. So now what? i checked the fuses they all show good, the fuel cutoff is good and is not popped. the only thing i don't hear is the fuel pump when i turn the key on...now i am wondering if this is a wiring problem because the dash is screwy or if it really is the fuel pump not working?

I on't know where to go from here. just forked over 400+ bucks to get the last work done 3 days ago...more money now?

Anyone have any suggestions on where to go from here?

Re: I am pissed

call up the place that you had the work done at and tell them what's going on. it seems pretty shady.

Re: I am pissed

What year and make is the truck brian? Do you have any other type of information on what was happening to cause you to take it to the shop? Take a few minutes and unhook your battery and let it sit for 30 minutes. Reconnect and see if that changes the flashing theft light and crack the fuel cap, relieve the pressure, retighten the cap and try to start it.

Re: I am pissed

well they broke a flange on the yoke so they had to replace that on their tab. they also replaced a ball joint, 2 tie rods, emergency brake levers and actuator, found out 2 exhaust manifold studs are broken and leaking, but are not covered under warranty unless they determine the manifold is the culprit of the break. a few other things. when i called them they said not to disconnect the battery incase the truck has codes and they need to read them.....(screw them, i am doing that tomorrow). The service manager must think I am stupid and don't have a clue. He says to me, maybe the battery is dead, right after i told him it was cranking over very well. some peoples children are idiots. I have told them from the start that i am mechanically inclined and to not try to dick me around.

So once it stops raining tomorrow i will set to work on it again. it caused me to blow a gasket oday which i have spent months trying to recover from having these problems. I don't really need another problem at the minute. I am trying to get ready to leave for Ontario (14hour drive) thisfriday and i need my truck to haul my gear and my dogs with me. I would take the stang but mother nature and all her snow may cause me some probs. plus its parked for the winter.

Re: I am pissed

I will try to check in tomorrow and see if you were able to get it started...........I love the "don't disconnect the battery". If the vehicle doesn't start and it's a code issue, it will show up again.

Re: I am pissed

Bobby might be onto something, just because the keys might be fine, the receiver in the column might of went bad. I have seen tech pull there hair out over that.

Re: I am pissed

I'm with Doug on this one. Disconnect that battery long enough to reset the computer. The funny thing about the "Don't disconnect the battery" part is that the computer will store all the old codes, even if the computer is reset. I think you have somehow tripped the anti-theft system and it needs reset. Had something similar happen on a Dodge van I was working on and it wouldn't start.
