FORD: 2004-2008 F-150
LINCOLN: 2006-2008 Mark LT
Some 2004-2008 F-150 and 2006-2008 Mark LT vehicles, built before 12/3/2007, may exhibit erratic fuel gauge operation or illuminated malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) with diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) P0460 or P0463, and/or Instrument Cluster Module DTC B1201. This may be caused by sulfur contamination in the fuel causing an open or high resistance in the fuel level sender.
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.
Install a new fuel level sender following the service procedure instruction sheet provided in the fuel sender kit.
