What do you mean it wont reset? If you disconnect the battery and the CK ENGINE light comes on and stays on, there is a hard fault, and it will need to be fixed for the light to go off.

How do I reset a computer on a 2000 Ford f150 4.6 v8 straight drive truck?

Hi Sissy , way would want to do that ? Do you have a check engine light on or something ? Security maybe ? People on here would tell you to disconnect the battery cables an touch the cable ends together an that it drains the voltage out of the control modules or something similar ! I won't tell you that , before you do read this Battery Disconnect or Replacement Problems

I'd start by checking the fuses and resetting the electrical system by disconnecting the battery for about 15 minutes.

My 92 88 royal osmobile security light came on and tried both keys wont start dont have alot of money or a dealership in my area what is the best way and cheapest way 2 by pass it

Disconnect the positive termanl on the battery for about 3 min. reconect the battery the computer should be reset. Drive the car for about 30 min. if it takes that long to get to the inspection station then drive there and it should pass as long as the light hasn't come on prior to arriving at inspection station.if so see how long it takes for light to come on go about that far away from inspection station disconnect battery and try again.

I have a 92 F150 supercab and it wont start...I had someone jump

I would check for spark at the plug wires, and check for fuel, there should be a pressure test port on the fuel injection rail to connect a fuel pressure gauge.

Sound like the computer to me, if it started acting up before you changed the battery. I am not certain if your model is affected by "no power". Disconnecting the battery with no other power source can affect the RAM of the computer, Random Access Memory. The memory can be erased and the computer would have to be reprogrammed at the dealer. the only thing I can think of, sorry I cant think of something simpler or something you can fix yourself.
