Question about Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

In a 2008 Ford E450 V10, why doesn't it start?

Replaced the battery and now won't start. Alarms go off, but still won't start when turning the key. Seems like anti-theft system doesn't work. Alarms sound when turning the key, then time out, but still won't start. Help please.

It looks like your theft deterrent processor needs to be re-programmed. I think the dealer has to do it.

Is the engine cranking over and not starting or is there no cranking action at all?

    Was this the same issue before the battery was replaced or did this happen after the battery was replaced

    Only happened after the battery was replaced.

    Try using the key to lock and unlock the drivers door. Let me know if this corrects the problem

    The key does lock and unlock the drivers door.

    Is there a security light flashing on the dash? Usually unlocking the drivers door with the key will reset the system

  • virginia trenery

    Yes there is a light flashing on the dash. Hmmmm. actually, I had the door unlocked already before connecting the new battery. Alarms went off as soon as connected the battery.Then, I tried to start it to shut off the alarms, but it wouldn't crank. Alarms eventually went off, then tried to start it; alarms sounded again, with lights flashing on the dash.

    This is my RV which is parked in a storage place. I'll go over tomorrow I do it in your sequence. That is, connect the battery, unlock the driver's door, then try to start it.

    Do you have a key fob? Using the key fob to lock and unlock the doors will normally reset the security sysytem. Locking and unlocking the drivers door with the key usually works as well

    It worked!! I can't thank you enough for all your help. I thought I was going to have to have it towed to the dealer. That would have been difficult; it's an RV. You're the best!!

My ford e450 6.8l v10 gasoline engine light on,obd2 shows p0770 transmission solenoid e malfuction,how do i do now? thank you for your help


It means your transmission is starting to go out, and may not shift correctly.
What year is the E or F 450?
If it's still under warranty, the dealer will have to fix it for free.
If not, don't take it to a dealer, you'll need to take it to a professional auto mechanic and they'll either fix it or replace the transmission with a rebuilt one. Either way it's lots of money.

Possible solution - This happened to me and my battery was dead in my key fob and also I needed an ignition switch because a piece on it was broken which therefore wouldn't turn to start the engine.

Brakes


check to see you haven't mounted the calipers on the wrong sides. bleeders should be on top not the bottom. RABS block is on the framerail near the drivers door
