So Had a Little Problem Yesterday

So I have the truck in tow/haul mode yesterday. I am hauling my first load of the year. I pull the truck into the parking lot to check the load level in the bags and see what the truck looks like with the trailer hooked up level wise. Get out of the truck, next thing I go to air them up a bit with the in cab controller and the truck shuts off says "REDUCED ENGINE POWER" Truck cranks and does not fire. I replenished the DEF thinking it might be that and I got nothing. Truck was hauled away on a flatbed. Anyone have this happen?

Yes, happened to me the day I deleted and tuned.

I blew a fuel line off of injector 8. I think it is more of a safety issue than anything. My truck cranked and cranked and didnt start.

All it was was a return hose blew off the injector.

Dont be too worried, didnt cost me a thing and had it back the next day

So Update. Went to dealer today. I had an Airlift Kit put on about a month ago. I bought the in cab controller for it also installed by an Airlift dealer and installer. When I go into the dealer today the Ford Tech takes me back needs to talk to me. Apparently the guys that put the Airlift piggy backed the circuit into the Fuel Pump Circuit in the fuse box. Now they can get the truck to run but the computer still shows an open circuit somewhere in the truck. I can tell you this I am not paying this bill the Airlift installer is. Not cool. If they would have taken 30 more seconds to see what circuit they were hooking into I would not be out a truck right now.

Sorry to hear about your unfortunate problem, I would also be outraged at the installer. I bet you are going to have a struggle getting them to pay for the repairs. That is why I don't let anyone touch my vehicles unless of course it is strictly warranty issues.

Dude, this really sux. I know that doesn't help you one bit or fix your truck but I had to say it!!

A dealer that is selling/installing equipment for trucks should know where the connections are to be made and that would NEVER include piggy backing a wire. When I see a wire piggy backed for any reason, I know the guy was either lazy or stupid - - or both. Bet he used one of those plastic things that would have corroded soon and stranded you on the road somewhere didn't he??

Get your Ford dealer to write up an estimate for damage/repair and have the Airlift guy pay you UP FRONT. I would try to include some down time payment for the truck too. Add your insurance and truck payment and then divide by 30 to see how much your truck costs you a day. Multiply the days you are down and collect.

Good Luck
