2003 Ford F150 truck having trouble!

I got in my truck to leave work a few days ago and when I cranked the truck, it would not let me put it in gear. I checked all my lights and none of the brake lights were out. I did find online that I could turn the key to the on position, then turn it back one click, then put the truck into Neutral, then crank the truck and I was able to drive it as long as I don't put it back into Park position. Then I will have to start over. Took the truck to a local mechanic yesterday and he check the ignition switch and said it was fine. He also ran the computer diagnostic on it and found 9 codes. The codes that he read are: B1892 - Air bag tone warn circuit fault C1096 - Hydraulic Pump motor circuit open C1226 - Brake Warning Lamp Short to Ground B1676 - Battery Voltage Out of Range U1262 - SCP Data fault for J 1850 BUS B1356 - Ignition run circuit fail C1284 - Oil Pressure switch fault P0460 - Fuel Level Sensor Circuit fault P0125 - Coolant Temperature too low/closed loop This is a 2003 Ford F150 Lariat with the Triton V8 engine. Its a super cab with the big back seat. Any ideas what might be going on? Thanks

It's possible you have a ground circuit problem. Ask your auto tech to look at his wiring diagram to see if they're are all linked together

    We tried that. The local guy seems to think its something wrong with the trucks computer.

    if the fuse is good try disconnecing the battery for 5min and hook it back up that will clear most all the codes and try to put it in gear with out starting the engine

SOURCE: 1999 pontiac grand prix . will not run

If wiggling the wires cured the code, then one of the wires is broken inside the insulation. Pull on each wire one at a time. look for the colored insulation to stretch, this will be the broken wire. For the other car that wont rev up, this is a common when the catalytic concverter is plugged up. This will also cause MAF codes, and in turn, TRAC OFF light.

SOURCE: 2001 Elantra stall, loss of power. Driving at

I am having the exact same problem with my 2001 Hyundai Elantra. I was told that the engine code that comes up when the sensor is on is called "Absolute Pressure In The Manifold". I was told by a "Hyundai Specialist" that when that code comes up it usually means that the seal on the manifold is Fuct. When my mechanic checked that out for me he had noticed that my manifold had 4 cracks in it(can varify cause he showed me). He replaced the manifold and gasket. The car ran fine for about 2-3 days and since then the problem has since come back and my check engine light will no longer go on/off it only stays on. Because of the check engine light always staying on I have noticed that on many occasions my car will hiccup many times in a row. The only way to stop the hiccup I have noticed is to take my foot right of the gas for approx. 2-3 sec then car will continue without hiccup(till it happends all over again). All in all I have been having this problem now for approx. 1 year and if there is somehow someway it could be repaired I would appretiate it.

Whenever i get this code i like to clear it and see if it returns. Sometimes in extreme cold weather conditions it will set this code and there may not be anything wrong. What motor is in your celica?

2000 ford f150 Manuel trans. Code p0320 is it a expensive repair? Stutters while in gear 3/4 but doesn't stall. Just started a few days ago

P0320 means that an ignition pulse that's supposed to fire a spark plug was missed. It could be as simple as a chafed wire under the hood. Watch this video:

I have a 1989 Ford f150 drive for about 30 minutes it dies out or stop and want crank for about an hour

I would unplug the gas cap when it stalls; if you hear a hissing sound, change the gas cap, because it builds up a vacuum in the tank.

Truck having trouble starting.

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.
