Question about 2004 Ford F150
I've got a 5.4 ltr V8 4x4. It would not start, so I replaced the battery. It started fine after that. The next morning I got up, started it and drove it about 1 mile, shut it off to go in a store. Came out and the truck would not start. Turn the key and nothing, no ticking, no starter trying, nothing. 5 minutes later I tried again and it fired right up. Had a mechanic look at it and could not duplicate problem. Got up the next morning, turned it over and let it run for a few minutes. Shut it off to go in the house, came back out and it wouldn't start. Tried it 2 dozen times. 5 minutes later when my mechanic arrived, it started fine.
When its not starting, the radio still works, the gauges work, etc. And the "key" symbol does not come up on the dash. I am at a total loss.
Your problem could be your starter relay. It could be internally damaged and causing the intermittent problem. Look in the junction box under the hood for it. If you have your factory manual,it will tell you the exact position of the relay.
