Hi, I assume your getting a PO 119 code: "The PCM has determined that the input from the engine coolant temperature sensor is intermittent"? The CHT sensor is in the valley of the motor under the intake manifold. If you’re looking at the motor from the front, it's on the rear passenger side. To change it, you need to remove the intake manifold. If you have small hands and flexible wrists, you can get a 3/4 wrench around it and remove it. This is about a three hour job at the dealer.

SOURCE: Need a source to get a replacement part Ford F150 20004 Truck

Nancy, is a great place...super LOW shipping, and drop down boxes to help you get the right part the first time.

I have ordered from them, and if you call them instead of ordering over the net, they almost always drop the price a few bucks.

I have ever had a part come to the house that was wrong...unless I gave them the wrong information

Hope this helps..oh yeah...I have absolutely no interest or connection to this web site financially.

Yes you are correct, it is an airbag problem./

The Airbag indicator lamp is burnt out, and a flash code is waiting.
Radio shack ( or similar ) should still have the replacement bulb for it.

Once you put it back in, the airbag lamp will flash a code that is a number, t ( ie flash 3 times ) then another number ( ie flash 5 times ). You will need that code for the next step in the diagnoses. Don't be alarmed if you get 10 sets of 3 flashes, that is actually a LFC ( Light Flash Code ) 33

You can try several things. You can stop the vehicle as if you are going into low range and shift the high range 2h, 4h, etc.. Ford advertises the Electric button type as "shift on the fly" but does not say the gears are synchronized to do that with manual engagement.

Change the lube this time to see if the lube is Milky. There have been floods, otherwise the case is sealed whether you park it or drive it. You still could have rust on the shift linkage. You need to move the linkage as you spray it. Then the offbeat chance something was bent from offroading. A Salvage Yard is a wonderful place to learn how a car is built. You may see their part looks different than yours.

SOURCE: Truck just stops b- 2005 Ford F150 80,000 miles

I had the same issue i changed the fuel fillter it was a little dirty but not bad. Still had problem then i cleaned out the throtel it worked good for a while. Ended up replacing the throtel its about $250 if you do it yourself which is not hard to do. The problem is the electronic throtel control but you have to replace the whole thing not sold seperatly hope that helps. Been running great did that 15,000 miles ago.
