Well not sure about the ticking or dim headlights. but if you start you engine and pull the positive wire off the battery. If it keep running thats a good thing. if the motor stalls then your alternator is not working. Try to check the fuses. some thing like this is always overlooked and many times is the problem. Next to the shift on top or the side there is usually a little button you pop out and you can put a small screw driver in the hole, this is an emergency release. The car usually has this safety feature so your can won`t get stolen without the key..Also try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes can reset the system and correct some small issues.

SOURCE: Car Won't Fully Shift into Park

You either have problem with the shifter assy, or the shifter cable has come out of adjustment.
If you remove the shifter bezel and center console you will be able to see the shifter cable. There will be a white or black lift tab on the cable. Release the tab and and place shifter in park. If it still does not go into park that means that you will need a shifter assy. If it goes into park with the tab released you push the tab back down with it still in park.

That should take care of your problem.

SOURCE: parking lights stay on when the key is turned off

there are more wires that you cannot see that are melted that is causing the problem. trace all of your wires, starting with the license plate light, all the way to the headlights

SOURCE: KEY STUCK IN IGNITION WHILE IN PARK. CAR WILL TURN

try wiggling the gear shift in park and turn your key at the same time, could be that the cable has stretched, push it into park a little harder and see if this helps

The chime will keep going off if it doesn't sense if the driver's seat belt is not clicked in. It may also be a bad door switch that shorts while driving down the road.

Help! 2005 F-150. Drove truck to store. Went in. Attempted to start. Truck stuck in park, strange clicking sound in fuse box and behind rear driverside passengers seat. Was able to get shifter into...


The clicking behind the rear seat back on the passenger side sounds like the VSM ( Vehicle Security Module ). Contrary to the name, this has nothing to do with the truck coming out of park.

Might want to remove the rear seat back, and check that there is not an issue with the ground wire to the VSM, and unplug the connectors and check for discoloration.

The truck will not start, as in will not turn over or will turn over and not fire up ( like it is out of fuel ) ?

When was the last time the battery was replaced or load tested ?

The cam phaser I would say wounds most like lifter noise from a 70s car, that ticking noise. At least the really loud cam phasers do sound like that. Some are not quite so noisy. My '06 has a bit of that ticking lifter type noise to it.,

Audible seatbelt warning keeps on sounding on my 2005 f150 ford truck


From the F-150 Forums, since I just bought one and this worked!

This is straight from my 2009 f150 owners guide

Preperation
1. the parking brake is set
2. truck in park
3. ignition switch is in off position
4. both seat belts are unbuckled

Disable Belt-Minder
1. turn the ignition switch to the on position, DO NOT START THE ENGINE.
2. wait until the safety belt warning light turns off. (approximately 1 minute).
* step 3 must be completed within 50 secs after the safety belt warning light turns off.
3. buckle then unbuckle the seat belt nine times, ending in the seat belt unbuckled.
* after step 3 the restraint warning light, (airbag light) will turn on for three (3) seconds.
4. within approximately seven (7) seconds of the light turning off, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt.
* the restraint system warning light will flash four, (4) times per second for 3 seconds for confirmation

you can do this for the passenger side also!!!


*NOTE
in step 3. after three times buckling and unbuckling the restraint warning light lit up in my truck. SO I WENT TO THE NEXT STEP, (STEP 4). waited 3 seconds and i buckled and unbuckled.

in the buckle /unbuckle procedure do it some what slowly and watch for the light. it may not take 9 times.
