Unreal. One day after taking it to the dealer it died on me.
Luckily, I was at home this time. I turned the key and when I didn’t hear the fuel pump prime, I knew it wasn’t going to start. And I was right. I switched the relays back just for kicks and got the same result. The pump wouldn’t prime when I turned the key (right before turning it to start). I didn’t bother cranking it since I knew it wouldn’t turn over without the fuel pump working.
I called for a tow truck and called a local garage who does great work since he knew the trouble I’ve been having with the Tribute. I told him to make sure that he tested it out once it got to his garage because it would most likely fire right up in the morning.
As the tow truck backed into my driveway I gave the key another turn and like magic I heard the fuel pump prime! I turned the key and it fired right up. Nice.
I paid the tow truck driver $25 for coming out and I’m back to where I started.
I called the garage (not the dealer) and we agreed to leave my Tribute with them all next week to see if they can replicate the non-start.
