Sounds like a bad connection somewhere.
When you get it started, is the alternator charging the battery ?
Do you have 12 or 13 volts at the starter when it will not crank without a jump ?

Honestly you should send it into the dealer. I don't think guessing will help you. Typically it is a dirty connection into the steering column (behind the ignition key) But diagnostics need to be run and a look at the VSS system (through a good scan tool) is needed to confirm.

2004 f150 battery light came on the other day. Then all gauges went kinda crazy. Then everything shut down, but was still driveable. Bought new battery but still having problem. Now truck won't even start.


Gauges going crazy like that is caused mostly by a bad battery. Try jump starting... If your truck still won't start even with a jump then there still might be a battery connection problem. Check to make sure cables are clean and tight at both ends...not just on the battery. Also that cables are in good condition. Let me know how you make out and I can assist you further.

After warm up starts to have a dead miss


Depending on the miles and how you keep it serviced, the catalytic converter can have some blockage and the backpressure can cause this. It happened to my excursion.
