Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew

Radio and dashlights turn on by themself, without key even in the ignition.

One morningI went out to start my 2001 ford f150,only to find the radio and dashboard lights on. The truck didnt even have my key in the ignition.Try to start it and it wouldnt start. Had to re move the battery cables and reattach them,to get it to start.This scenario happens about every 3 weeks to me. Any suggestions or remedies would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Truck wont start


It could be the fender mounted starter relay under the hood. Or if you took off the small wire at that relay (its from the ignition switch), it should have voltage when the key is held in start. If it does have power in start, probably the relay. If no power in start, either the switch or the neutral safety switch is acting up.

Not the Key but the ignition itself. Replace teh ignition module where the key is inserted to start the vehicle and that should resolve the issue.

Check and make sure the ignition switch is not worn out and allowing you to remove the key when the switch is turned backwards in teh accessory position. once the key is removed and the radio is staying on, turn the ignition without the key in it, both directions and see if it shuts off, if it does, menas work cylinder or key.

1995 Ford Windstar NO Dash Lights no radio no tail lights


I would check the wiring on the radio. Lot of cars (especially nowadays) the electricity like the lights and raido is hooked on there. If any of the wires went bad, or maybe even the radio would make it cause that.

So just remove the pannel around the radio

unbolt the radio

Pull the radio out and check all the wiring.

If the wires are not bad, maybe check to see if the radio is working.

If this dont help, I might know something else
