Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew
I have a 2002 F150 Supercrew. About a month ago we thought the battery was going because we kept needing to jump it... We've replaced the battery & alternator. Mechanic says it's an electrical problem - a disconnect somewhere that is draining the battery but can't find the problem. We've been having to disconnect the battery so the car can be used each day until we figure this out. Anyone know anything about this???

As a retired electrical engineer this intrigues me. If you were my neighbor I would put an ammeter in series with the batteery lead to see just how much current is being drawn by the "mystery" load.
When you disconnect or hook up the battery can you see any sparks when the cable touches the battery terminal?
If the battery can get run down over night that is a significant drain.
If there is some sign of spark when you connect/disconnect the battery lead try the following.
Selectively remove a fuse in the fuse panel, (starting with the larger fuses, 15A, 20A) and then connect the battery terminal and see if you still have a spark.
Hope this helps Good luck Loringh
