To be sure the alt. is ok, start up the Truck
and will running pull the ground off the battery
if it keeps running battery is ok.
If you have an uncharged battery and do that
then your Alt.is no good be sure to check all
your wires.If this don't help let me know.
GOOD LUCK

My 2006 f150 4x4 lariat has no power to the Ac compressor or the 4x4 solenoid


Fuse 11 is the common fuse to the 4x4 system & the AC.
for the AC it operates the AC clutch solenoid
for the 4x4 it powers the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) Solenoid.

Check Fuse #11 with a meter on both pins on the back while installed ( fuse is hot at all times )

What causes the computer to read bank 1 to lean, bank 2 to lean. It also idles rough and will stall out while stopped. Runs great at operating speeds. It's on a 2004 F150, 4x4, 5.4 vin code 5.


More than likely you have a vaccume leak.Check arround the intake looking for any broken vac.hoses(especally the PCV hose) all the way up to where it connects to the intake.Could be a bad mass airflow sensor, but more likely a vac. leak.

Hi my 2006 F150 king ranch has shut off twice where it locks up for the engine failsafe then says low oil pressure. after turning off then on, it goes away. Any thoughts? The truck is recently purchased...


Your pickup should have thrown a stored code if it has shut down. Get the code extrracted, and see if it indicates a sensor along with something else. I would advise you to install an after market gauge which operates independantly fron the existing oil pressure circuit to verify that it is a low oil pressure condition the next time it happens.Could be a faulty sensor, but it needs to be verified first.

06 f150 if lights left on for under 10 min truck needs jump


your first three words...battery checks ok....??? See why its difficult to do this from my end?
Anyhow, here are a few suggestions to keep new battery OK.
If you like to sit in parking lots (or other places) with the radio on, put a small battery charger on your battery every month or so to bring it back to fully charged.
If you run the battery down by leaving anything on (key, dome light headlamps, and need a jump to start, charge the battery with charger also, as soon as you can. Reason is, your alternator is not designed to charge a battery. It's purpose is to maintain the state of charge in the battery. Though it may seem OK after a jump and drive, it will never again have a deep charge unless you put it there with a charger.
This also overworks the alternator.
So aside from keeping it clean on the outside, if you follow this rule it will be happy on the inside and give you even longer than its expected service life in return. Good luck with your car!!

To check if the transfer case is locked in jack up the front wheels and turn them. if they turn freely it probably is the hub(s) The hub locks the front wheel to the axleshaft. I fitted mine with warn manual hubs due to reliability of auto hubs...
