My 2011 F250 Superduty control light flickers while driving on pavement. At 60 mph if i tap the brake petal the pedal feels funny and truck throws to the left

Dear Richard.
I cannot answer your specific question, but your very good description of a symptom has raised a big red flag with me.
(I began my car & truck repair in 1960).
Your last sentence says to me: Because of the problem with you driving the truck and finding it necessary to do an emergency brake application, please do not drive the truck anymore until it is repaired, even to the point of having it towed to a Ford dealer.
It sounds like an electronic issue that is locking the left front wheel.
God bless your efforts.

2001 f250 airbag light came on horn won't work or cruise controls or automatic hubs won't lock. Is this all connected? It happened at the same time

The horn switch and the air bag and cruise control wiring in the steering wheel go through the clock spring, ford calls it air bag sliding contact. The clock springs have been know to go bad.

2004 ford f250 powerstroke. brake pedal is hard to press at first then goes straight to the floor also power steering quit working at the same time.

Hmm.. Low fluid in the power steering pump, broken belt driving the power steering pump, failed component causing loss of power steering fluid, failed power steering pump.

Check for a broken belt first, check the oil in the pump, look for leakage under the truck.

If the pump is low on fluid you want to put about half the amount in that you're going to need and then start the truck and turn the wheel slowly from stop to stop, each way- spend about ten seconds going from one stop to the other. This will allow any air in the system to be purged out in a controlled fashion, it can really spray if you get a big, compressed bubble of air in the system and release it quickly. Shut the truck off and top the steering pump up, check for leaks.

Loose steering wheel on f250 turbo deisel truck. what would cause this and could it be the bearing?

yeah, more than likely the bearings you should be able to feel the bearings grinding as you turn the wheel. you can buy all the parts and hope you get everything you need or go to a junkyard and buy the whole thing and replace it 5 times faster.

I have a 2004 Ford F250 Superduty V8 Turbo Deisel. I attempted to put it into 4WD (due to snow) and nothing happened and no indicator light came on. I followed what I usually do by turning the control...

You need to check for a bad fuse or relay. Also there may be a speed sensor problem in the transfer case. Perform an OBDII scan before doing any repairs. this stuff is complicated and expensive. Let the ODBII scan be your guide to avoid buying parts you don't need. The 4WD drive train and axels, should have been serviced at 80,000 miles. (2004 ?)

Have you looked at your anti lock braking system. It will give a pulsation when it is in use. You may have a problem with it and it is coming on prematurely. Listen when your truck is doing this and you should hear the humming of the antilock system if it is on. Otherwise i would ckeck your ball joints and tie rod ends for wear as this can cause a vibration back thru your braking system as well

2002 ford f250 v10 when making turns in four wheel drive the front end starts poping as you turn. you can feel it in the steering wheel and hear it.

Four wheel drive is designed to drive on grave or mud. You will always have a feeling within the steering wheel and the truck will feel as though it is hopping , this is normal on dry pavement. How ever you shouldn't hear noise this is an indication that your universal joint on your front differential shaft is worn. You should have both changed if you are considering driving it in four wheel drive a lot in the conditions that the vehicle was designed to drive in, slippery, muddy,ect.
