Question about 1988 Ford F 150

88 f-150 radio

Hey this is a crazy question but I just bought this truck and it seems to only have an am radio! now im a pretty young guy and i was wondering is it actually just an am radio? or have i just not found out how to change it to fm? i feel like i have examined it and pressed every button possible so i guess my question really is DID they sell the trucks with an am only radio? cause it is factory everything and not an aftermarket radio.

Yes they did sell trucks with only am radios. What is most amazing is that it is still in the truck. Most people changed them out. I guess the previous owner did not ever listen to it. The question I have is how did you know I would be able to answer this question?

    I got an e-mail that said you were asking me. I was just joking around anyway.

Need help with a 1998 ford e150 cargo van. Its the base model. No power locks or anything fancy. I have no power to the radio at all. All fuses seem to be okay. Im having an issue finding a fuse diagram....

There is no Relay. But I believe that the Radio chassis has to have good ground. That can be easily checked with a test light connected to a Positive(+) Source.

Had radiator changed and hoses that cool radiator

Sure you can use old everything but whats the jeporty if it breaks down? Your young daughter walking home late at night? Or your tough guy just going home with all your buddies that just got off too and they'll help you out? Fix it right if you ned to trust it, Or just throw it away when the motorblows from sudden overheating. sure it may run a long time, long as your young daughter isn't left out on the raod at night.

This is an idea not a for sure. Bad or worn valves can cause what you describe. Had something similar happen to an 2004 Toyota. Due to bad lubrication, crazy huh?

You probably have a faulty sensor at the transmission.

Go to your local parts store, and they can give you the part and how to install it. It's pretty easy.

Radio & Lighte went out

im dave
does the lighter still work?
if so check the fuse in the back of the radio or perhaps there is one in the wiring coming from the back of the radio.
