Question about 2004 Ford F150

1 Answer

Truck will not turn over

I have a 2004 F-150 Lariat 4 door which I had started and left idling to warm up prior to taking off. When I returned to the truck it had stalled and the low oil pressure light was on the message board. I tried to start the truck and it will not turn over. The oil level is fine and I disconnected the battery hoping that it would recycle the electronics and allow the truck to start. The truck still will not even attempt to turn over. Any suggestions or comments are appreciated.

    Is there any sound when trying to start? Does the theft light blink? If not try banging the starter.

I have found that the main cable to the starter is either broken or corroded. Replace the end and it should be fine.

it could be the PCM , but I would check the fuel pump relay first. the relay could be sticking to make the fuel pump run all the time. as far as the dying problem you may want to check the idle air by-pass valve to make sure your idle rpm's are sufficient.

Chances are you have an oxygen sensor problem. When the engine warms up, the engine computer moves from open loop operation to closed loop, and it then uses the O2 sensor readings to adjust the fuel. If the sensor(s) is contaminated, it will send a false reading to the computer causing this problem.
