2004 Ford E-Series Van V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 90000 miles
I have a 15 Passenger for van (for my band) and there's a major problem with the electrical system. A couple weeks ago everything flash off and then on while I was driving, then no issue for a couple weeks. Then on our way to a show everything turned off and stayed off for couple hours. On the way back, mid trip it all turned back on. We weren't " doing" anything but driving when this happened. Now everyhting is off and it seams like they are off for good.
I took it too a mechanic who I don't entirely trust and after working on it for two days he said it needs a new wiring harness. I know a lot about electricity and soldering. It seams to me like one loose wire but he wanted $1100 to fix which I cannot afford.
Currently the following DO NOT hasve power:
All Gauges (Gas, Speedometer, Tach, etc)
Vanity Mirror Lights
Interior (overhead) lights
The following have power and are working fine:
Dash lights (gauges light up)
Overdrive switch light
Any ideas what the issue could be? Can I fix this myself? THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP!
