If there is any electrical connection between the supercharger and the fan circuit, it is an opportunity for a denied warranty claim for anything that fails on that circuit. I might add that there is still the question of why the fuse failed in the first place. As well, while I do perform mods on my vehicle, I am also fully aware that I may be required to expertly refute a dealership's claim of said mods being the source of part or equipment failure. In addition, labor charges are determined by a guide book and may or may not reflect actual time necessary to accomplish any given task. Further, the things that you claim you were being "charged" for are on the estimate. You weren't actually charged for anything other than an hour of labor for a diagnosis that you dispute. Finally, have you followed the contact instructions
provided on Ford's website for unresolved issues with dealerships? The problems that people have with dealerships of ALL
brands and makes are legend. While it is distressing that you have had this experience, it is not unique to Ford as a corporation, this could happen at a Chevy, Toyota or Mercedes dealership. Ultimately, the onus is on the owner of a modified car to follow the chain of contact and expertly refute the claims of a service manager. Unfortunately, this is a responsibility that comes with the act of performing mods on your car.
Mustang #7 As you can understand Customers have rights just as companies and often more than not we waive our rights because Companies have bigger and stronger muscles, as STATED by THE Consumer Protection ACT! SEMA REPORT
A company cannot just simply void your warranty for using an aftermarket part they NEED PROF not words... ACTUAL PROF that what you changed or what you did damaged the part being warrantied.
@djhayes1963 just because a company does it and companies are regulated does not make it right or acceptable, with Muscle (MONEY) comes power and that power can be used to buy out! or intimidate others with less Muscle(MONEY) to back off which explains why 1 customer cant go against a COMPANY.
@RandoTheKing typical mind of the consumer thats exactly how companies what you to think and they fight everyday to take your rights away.
@jsimmons Obviously i MODDED the engine I'm not there for "ENGINE" warranty
and they charge a diag fee because it is no business to them to tell you what the problem is and then u go fix it yourself or go somewere cheaper, so thats why they charge you to tell you what the problem is , Only 1 catch there THEY ACTUALLY HAVE TO TELL YOU WHAT THE PROBLEM IS! NOT GIVE U A ******** COVER STORY TO CHARGE YOU!.
@Smurf stang ok smurf im not sure you understand whats going on here.... I am not looking to place blame on " EVERYONE " i am looking to get my stolen money back and to stop this kind of behavior and theft to happen in the future which is what your are failing to understand, Ford and their dealers are not separate as long as their dealerships have their name on the location they have to Follow their rules and policies because they represent the COMPANY when you go to a dealership it does not say DEALERSHIP it says FORD DEALERSHIP, See that first word ? that's what makes it owned by FORD MOTOR COMPANY.
Ultimately here is a Detailed explanation for those of you who umm.... is taking it longer to get whats going on here.
they were charging me 40$ for a relay i DID NOT NEED!
and 2 "CIRCUIT BREAKER' AKA FUSES at 5$ EACH which i also DID NOT NEED!
They also charged me $11.87 For and i quote! COST AND PROFIT!!! to the motor vehicle facility... for SUCH AS! MISC shop supplies!! Which they used none!
OR WASTE DISPOSAL Which they did not do Either to my Car... So here again
another 11.87 dollars stolen from the customer.
I HOPE this explains everything and gets in the head of those who are still skeptical about the real intentions of dealers .
