Question about Ford F-250

2 Answers

I have a2000 Ford F-250 Superduty. My battery light came on today and blinked for a bit....then when off and then back on....It eventually lost its charge.....I'm thinking that its the alternater...however; thinking back on the past windshield wipers have stayed on when I turned them off....and the radio came on yesterday out of the blue.....could any of this be related? Possibly some fuse? I am going to have it towed tomorrow to my mechanic--just wondering if any of you have any thoughts on this? thanks

A lot of that stuff requires 13 to 14.5 volts to run properly. Sounds like the brushes in the alt are at the end of the spring tench-on. Some times smacking the alt with a rubber mallet will get it to run for a while. time for a new alt. Have battery check also,won't hurt unless it comes up weak....

SOURCE: SRS light stays on

I have 2002 Odyssey( 59000 miles without warranty). Several months ago the SRS light stayed on after I started the car. Some people said the dealers usually charge $ 80 to 95 to reset the light. Today I sent the car to dealer. After checking the car, they told me the car is under warranty, the parts and repairing are free.

SOURCE: Windshield wipers won't work. Ford 2002 ZX2

The actual assembly arm that you turn on your windshield wiper (that says all of the controls on it) was bad and was causing the fuses to blow and burning up the motor. It was replaced and it works now as well as the a/c and heat which was not working before this fix.

SOURCE: radio doesn't turn on

no its not a fuse the anti theft built in the radio has locked you out and the only way to get it to work again is pull it out and copy all the numbers that are on it call your local dealer for that vehicle ask for parts department tell them you replaced the battery and need the unlock code for the stereo. also it will help you if you tell them u work for a mechanic shop just give them the name of one they dont question anything. and they'll give you the code

SOURCE: Front wipers stopped working

Try to run a ground test on the motor, If it gets power, then you neeed to replace the switch.. if it doesnt run with the ground test, then you need a wiper motor.

How do I adjust the clutch in my 2005 F-250 Superduty with a 6.0L Diesel

The clutch on this vehicle is hydraulically operated and as such there isn't any actual adjustments that can be made. A worn clutch disc can cause the clutch not to engage until the pedal is very high up while a problem with the hydraulics can prevent the clutch from fully disengaging which will cause the gears to grind when trying to shift into first or reverse. Hope this helps a bit with your question.
