Question about 2004 Ford F150

1 Answer

Truck having trouble starting.

I have a 2004 Ford F150 Supercrew and it was took a few cranks to get it started these last few days, it was as if the battery was getting the juice it needed. I also noticed that when I locked the truck with the remote lock the beep was very faint. Last night I tried to start it and it wouldn't but it took a jump right away and ran fine. Then this morning again it took a few cranks and the remote lock beep again was very faint. What could this be? I'm thinking either I need a new battery or it is the alternator?

With the engine running remove the positive battery cable, if the engine continues to run the alternator is good and the battery is probably bad. If the engine dies then the opposite is true.

Check how old the battery is & test it or replace,as necessary

Test Alternator Output especially A/C Current Ripple

Look at ALL Data with professional scan tool on a road test
& record things

Look at freeze frame data when problem occurs

May or maynot crank. Anti-theft light blinking really fast. May take ~10mins or more before it cranks. Correct key in ignition. Ford F150 2001 truck.


Do you have another key to try ?
The flashing theft light during the crank is indicating the key is not programmed to the truck.
When you get the no crank no start, do the cluster pass the power on tests OK ? ( i.e. all the indicators light up, and then go out, oil would still be on with the key in the run position with the engine off ).

I have a Ford F150, I in drove in high water


i would drain the oil and change it and the oil filter, then i would replace the fuel filter and try to start it if still has an issue, while cranking check for spark, if you have spark and fuel vehicle should run , as far as the code look up trouble codes on google for automotive and it should help you out.

F150 supercrew cab won't start,,battery good


If you're using your truck to jump start another dead battery in a different car..your truck should be runing when you do that.....

If you leave your truck turned off and are jump starting another car/truck that way..you are drawing your CCA (cold cranking amps) way down, and really shortening the life of your batery..you'll be needing to get jump started yourslf pretty soon.

Truck stalls


have you replace the crank sensor? or cranshaft sensor?
if not do it, but before you do that make sure to have the truck inspect for a posible aftermarket alarm installed if it does have it remove and drive it for a few days,
and please after trying leave ranking or feedback for me, thanx and good luck
