    Nice diuagnosis and explanation. well done.shame on previous tech that did not spend more time diagnosis

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brian Henslee says:

    Okay more proof on top of many that the Ford 5.4 is a useless engine that's all I'm going to say.m

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Theresa Long says:

    awesome helping read diag sheet # and process

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shmeh Fleh says:

    We all learned an important lesson today: Those clip-style multimeter probes are not great at carrying lots of current.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars stevehannen says:

    The greatest start to a video ever🤣with added doodlly doo!

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars vic says:

    Your the man Ray

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don W says:

    An excellent how to video on diagnosing an electrical short…I don't think Ford could have made getting to that stinking motor any more difficult…geez…
    A great video Ray and a good explanation of the wiring diagrams and how they are laid out. Another great video…just sucks it was so invasive for a diagnosis.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daddyoh says:

    3 valve engine 💩💩for changing plugs..

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Craig says:

    good diagnostics Ray, as an Electronics Tech who has had to follow up other techs " who threw up their hands", I follow the schematics and isolate, as you did

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Keola M says:

    I think this is your best troubleshooting walk through to date This is why you're awesome!

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Julius Roberts says:

    Was that Bryson Gray in the background?

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tracy nichols says:

    Love watching your troubleshooting thinking

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Sloan says:

    Wow! That was really interesting. Great job diagnosing the problem Ray. Of course it had to be the most difficult component on the circuit to get to.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tror Macmillan says:

    Wow just wow 👍

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Burrito1000 says:

    Good work, my friend. I'd tend to say that you were lucky. Or, perhaps, I'm just unlucky. A lot of times for me, what happens in these cases, right where you verified the last unit that was shorted, in my case, it would not be shorted. I would be forced into much deeper troubleshooting. Late night, 12hr a day work and a month later and my boss breathing down my neck and still no culprit. Ok, in my case, it's not automotive trouble shooting, but electronic PC board level troubleshooting. You might say to just throw away that one and buy another one. It may come to that in some cases, but these boards can be very expensive.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars momurderah says:

    I bet your co-worker got to that component too and was like, " Screw this, I'm not gonna take this thing apart for a diag!

    Raaaaaaay, can you find this short for me?"
    🤣

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Taylor says:

    Dude, you are a Mechanics Mechanic! You don't stop until you Completely diagnose an issue. Good job man!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JesusLovesYou says:

    Hey boss what's up with the audio on this video? It is so quiet for allot of the video

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blahblah says:

    This may be a little too much cause it’ll be time consuming, but think it’ll be kinda cool to have a quick description of what something does. Like have the description and if people dont know what you are talking about(like me) can pause it and read it then carry on with video

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars corey fairbanks says:

    Well done.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars adrian nicholson says:

    how a fire starter NI ICE brake out the mushy

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Smith says:

    I know that the truck is supposed to have a 5.4 GAS engine. But everytime there was a shot of the engine running, I SWEAR it sounded like a PowerStroke Diesel !!! Did they get an engine swap ??? Or is it just a REALLY noisy 5.4 ??

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bbob5810 says:

    You the man

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bbob5810 says:

    I use a small bungee cord to hold the belt

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevan Smith says:

    I like the subtle clues that the owner is a blue collar guy. Did i guess right?

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Timothy Peterson says:

    PIA But you did this smooth and methodically. Great work Ray.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DeSoto Sky says:

    Seemed like an awful lot of components to be on one fuse/circuit.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars oldhp mopar says:

    Take the crack away from the Ford engineers. That is the biggest turd I've ever seen.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Monk says:

    Would have left the difficult ones to last or maybe "interrupted" it's path!

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Court Cowling says:

    I hate when the doobly doo fuse blows

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eddie B says:

    I really wish he'd record putting the whole thing back together again as a bonus video!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars rickn8or says:

    You tried and tried to make the problem child be something simple and easy, and all the Ferd had to do was cooperate. But nooooo…

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars can't wheelieme says:

    Fire 🔥 🔥 ray was cursing 🤬 lol fun shi#

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pcs0snq says:

    Shapes, colors and now fire 😂

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Hedrick says:

    One of the coolest diagnosis I've seen. I'm good at repairing shorts in a wiring but i wouldn't have been able to find that one

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dimer6.0 says:

    I never thought watching diagnostics could be so interesting, love that video and the explanation, it actually made me understand how to chase wiring diagrams Love it, keep ‘em coming ray!!!!

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BC AD says:

    The reason disconnecting the AC clutch had no effect and why it wasn't running is because fuse 32 powers the control side of the relay (pin 86) not the load side. If the clutch was shorted it would have blown a different fuse.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Speeddemon3 says:

    OMG that was funny, sorry for your leads burning..
    As Eric O would say, "There's you problem lady"!

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars trekOCLVone says:

    This is a good example of a thorough trouble shooting.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Homer Feltes says:

    Do them a favor and have them get relay to fix the fuel pump relay when it goes. Have them reseal the front winshield and cowl area for passenger side water intrusion. And go ahead and replace all splices at drivers sill plate.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 2003RFVert says:

    This was a great diag video. Great job!

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thor Hammer says:

    Did you unhook the parts test then reconnect them?

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars raspucin70 says:

    amazing diagnostic skills and huge SHAME ON YOU Ford for designing such a non-user friendly vehicle

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Willypalooza says:

    I think its pretty sad another tech dumped that on you. Im not sure about your store but we dont drop jobs on others if we have trouble. I spent 3 days on a nightmare titan false immobilizer lockout due to some electrical fuckery but it never went to someone else lol

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Nameless says:

    Why not simply connect multimeter to a disconnected plug and see if it reads low resistance like below 20 ohms i'd suspect ?
    No need to jump back and forth.
    To make it even easier, hook up the multimeter to constantly beep mode and go pull every plug you see. One that stops the beeping is it

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane says:

    How are all these components on the same 15 amp fuse?
    The compressor alone should get a 10 amp fuse, and even if that's good enough to power everything, it shouldn't be this way, because then when you get one short\open, you lose lots of functionality instead of just one component.

    Ray: Either I won something from you or you've been spoofed/hacked! See the reply to my message in my separate post below. In either case, I don't use telegram or see a tab in youtube to message you. I've e-mailed you on your business address. My e-mail there is similar to my screen name with a bell system domain. Thanks! Please let us all know (with your regular screen name) if this is legit. Thanks!!
