Question about 1990 Ford F150

2004 F150 heritage, 4.2L V6 wont crank, has power

I replaced the two relays under the dash, because they were clicking. Now I have dash lights again, but the truck still wont start. I really dont know how to tell if the relays are bad without them clicking, so I looked at the ones under the hood and I cant tell if they're bad. Any suggestions.

I'd just bypass solenoid to see if starter kicks in. Positive from battery to big lead going to starter. You may want to check lead at starter to see if there's any buildup of corrosion.

Check for power at the starter and starter solenoid while someone holds the key to crank if it has enough voltage the starter is bad but make sure all connections for the battery and starter are good before replacing starter

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.

Have a 2004 Dodge Stratus 2.7 just replaced the starter with a new one and still wont start. All the lights and everything lights up on dash but the Car wont crank up! All wires are hooked up to the...


I'm guessing that it isn't even turning over. There are a couple of things you can check. Both are in the power distribution box under the hood of the vehicle (see picture below). Also below is a picture of the fuse and relay layout. There is one fuse directly related to the starter relay (number 8 marked with a red arrow) and also the starter relay itself (also marked with a red arrow). I hope this helps.

F150- replaced starter, still won't start. Replaced cellanoid, still won't start. Any ideas?


For new body style 2004, not a 2004 heritage or lightning
Is this a case of crank no start, or no crank no start ?
Will the truck start in neutral ?

If you turn the key from off to run ( do not start ) does the theft light on the top of the dash go out ( this is the LED in the wart on the driver's side ).

Have you tried resetting the fuel inertia switch in the passenger side kick panel ?

If you get a crank no start, and the theft light is going out, might need to check the FPDM ( Fuel Pump Driver Module ) to see if it is cranked in half. The FPDM powers the fuel pump, after the fuel inertia switch.

You need to lower the spare tire to get a good look at it.
This is mine from my 2006 F-150, it was still working, at the tiem I changed it, the housing was the only thing cracked.

This is taken from the rear bumper, facing the front of the truck. Driver's side rear tire on the left, the cable on the right side of the picture is for the spare tire winch.

This is the FPDM close up, the housing was only borken on mine, but the corrosion would have soon broke the PC board in the FPDM.

The new one has stand offs to alleviate the corrosion pushing on the FPDM.

My fog lights are not working, the relay is fine but not sure where the fuse is? Don't want to buy a service manual for this one simple thing. It does not tell you in the manual.


I have a 2004 f150 xlt triton. I couldn't figure out the how to turn on the fog lamps and the manual was not helpful.

Solution: turn the light switch all the way to the right and pull the switch (out) towards you. Push switch in and it turns off. The manual says to turn switch all the way to right but doesn't say to pull switch out.

Nissan tittan 2004 electrical problem


try following your main groud from your battery to the frame and from the frame to the angine and then for certain brand of trucks ...from engine to starter!

could also be the selenoid there are two ...one on starter one on frame ... those clicks that you hear from under dash are the relays! it is normal ...means that power reache but doe's not mean that enougf power reaches!

2004 ford f150 wont start.take fuel pump out and jumped it ,it wo


fuel pump relay, or the simplest solution check the fuse block to see if you have a blown fuse. Most likely its the relay, but check the fuse block, under the dash and under the hood, maybe you'll get lucky. Good Luck.
