Check the switch under the hood. right hand side on the fire wall just under the wiper cowl. this happened to me. ford says water from the wipers leak on the switch and shorts it out. they replaced the switch and losely put a plastic over it to keep the water out. make sure not to put the plastic too tight, it is vacuum , so it needs to breath. Also check the front wheel accuators that engage the front end(next to the wheels), ford had some bad accuators that would not hold the pressure this to also happened to me. ford should pass it on a goodwill warranty. hopefully nothing else is broken. cost me $500 because i damaged the wheel bearings. ford won't pay for those.

2006 F150. When engaging the 4 wheel drive, no lights on the dash and 4 wheel drive does not engage. What should I check?

There is a 4wd actuator mounted to the transfer case. Have the motor tested. Sometimes the motor freezes up. If it don't switch over to 4wd, the light won't switch either. Also, make sure the plug on the motor didn't fall off or corrode.

2001 f150 a/c compresser clutch wont engage

are you getting power to the clutch compressor? if no power check the "wide open throttle" relay. the relay can go bad and disrupt power to the clutch. also check the voltage on the pressure transducer to make sure it is reading line pressure correctly, will need a scan tool to access this info.

My 2004 f150 truck parking light are flashing and wont turn off

If you car has a keyless entry or security system that is most likely the source of the problem. check the emergency flasher switch to be sure its not engaged,, and if all else fails, pull the fuse for the flashers ,, you could have a shorted switch ,,

The sliding rear window on my Ford 2004 F-150 does not work. I have listen for humming or clicking when I press the switch, but hear nothing. I checked what I think is the fuse for this and it was good....

Is this a 2004 Heritage / Lightning or a New Body style 2004 ( like the 05-08 MYs ) ?
The fuse is the same one for the power windows.

Might want to pull the overhead console, and test the switch for the rear slider

05 f150, 4x4 wont engage, there are no dash lights, no sounds? Fuses?

There is another recall for the cruise control. Once Ford added the inline fuse, electrical problems with transmissions, brake lights, and dash indicators started.

The dealer can run your Vin# and the recall is free.
