Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew

1 Answer

Gearshift locked, no power windows, interior lights, wipers

I have a 2001 Ford F150. It starts just fine, dash lights, headlights, etc. work just fine. But the gearshift won't move, there are no dome lights, dimmer switch doesn't work, power windows don't work, and wipers don't work. What in the world is the problem??! I've seen posts elsewhere for other Ford models that indicate the General Electric Module (GEM) needs replaced. If that is the case, how is that done and where is it located on this model?

    Sorry for late response on this. I found out that it had about 6 blown fuses that all went out simultaneously. Replaced the fuses, but I'm afraid it will happen again - has to be a reason they all blew at once. Not sure that it's a moisture problem, because I'm in West Texas in the middle of a drought :) Had not taken it to the car wash in over a month.

For starters, do you have brake lamps? The shift lockout is controlled by the brake switch. As far as the others, yes it could be the GEM (generic electronic module) some of these vehicles have water intrusion problems that leat into the fusebox and GEM which is located on the back of the fuse box. If you can look at the fuse box inside the vehicle and if you can see the back, look for corrosion which is a sign of water.

2001 explorer sport wont start after being disabled possibly by toying with the transmission linkage.


As far as I'm aware the dealer has to make your security key for you. It sounds like you don't have the proper key so it will only function the interior and not start the engine as a security feature so that people can't make copies of your keys and steal your car. If you get a key from a dealer & it works, I would demand your money back from the locksmith. Hope this helps

My power window interior door lights quit lighting up could the bulbs be blown


If the power window itself still work fine, and the illumination on the driver's side door lock still work, then the LEDs behind the switch are the issue ( usually bad solder joints ).
If you are talking about all doors other than the driver's side, do you have the window lock on ? The lights on the switch turn off when the driver's side window lock is enabled.

My 1998 ford f150 4x4 has electrial problems. The dome light, power windows, wipers,electric door locks are not working. Any ideas


Hi, this might be caused by a blown fuse. Check all fuses as there are some systems integrated with others running from the same fuse. If all the fuses are fine you will need to look at the earth connections and power supplies to the systems.

Power windows, wipers, and lights don't work.


I think your problem is the electric control module. its a little black box under the dash that controls the head lights and parklights and interior lights. your doors have a switch by the door latch,when you open the door. use a screw drive to lock the door with out closing it . then see if the fuse still pops. if it does yous problem is the latch itself

Transmission shifter is stuck in 'P' on my 2002 F150 Fx4 Supercrew, why?


You need to check the connection on the front of the master cylinder. This is the brake disengage for the cruise control. If it is wet this is the problem of the short. You need to replace the unit. This was a recall by ford. Now check the #15 fuse (5a) this controls the brake interlock switch. When you put the fuse in you will hear a click. This means you can now take the truck out of park. The lights will come on and the windows will work. If the windows don't work check the other fuses. By pulling them and replacing them made the windows work for me.

Electrical problem


I just had the same issues. No headlights, interior lights, power door locks, radio controls on steering wheel, or dash lights. Pulled every fuse in cab and under hood, not a one was bad. I disconnected the battery terminals for a few minutes. When I reconnected them every thing was working.
