Change your dealership ,infact i would say this is not a ford reconised dealer ship,it might advertise ford full stop.Any good dealer would reconise this problem as the switch and i have taught 16/17 year old who would have had your problem fixed and sorted in 10 mins.adrian,,,,,,,,,,,

Heater not blowing hot air


Hi Chris, sounds like your thermostat may be worn and not closing all the way which would cause your engine to run cool at times. If you have a temp gage it should tell you if the engine is actually warming up or not. If not I would replace the thermostat.

Heater runs hot then goes cold


Do you have a temperature gage in your instrument cluster? When the temp goes cold, does the temp gage rise? Check your coolant level both in the radiator and the coolant recovery tank under the hood, and fill as necessary. If that is OK, then check your serpentine belt for wear and/or slippage around the water pump. Lastly, if you have a temp gage and are noticing fluctuations in the reading, you may need to replace your cooling system thermostat. Good luck.

Cluster problem,transmation temp gage ,engine temp gage not working but in info message center flashing other problem like battery voltage flashing but working gage no high beem indecater only sometimes...


This sounds like a few problems, the first thing i would is to have the computer scanned for any storeed codes, have the engine computer and body computer checked then scan the cluster for any problems, these trcks had a few problems with the cluster and the throtlebody just to name a few things, start with the scanning then maybe replace the cluster, on most of these newwer trucks the replacement cluster must be program to truck inorder for the truck to run correctly and cluster to operate correctly. hope this is helpful also check with your dealer for any recalls on this cluster problem you may be able to get free repairs.

Heat gage shows red line. not all the time.


autozone will scan your engine code for free. the thermostat is located under the nipple that the large hose coming from the top of the radiator clamps too.you can have your radiator flushed for about $80 just about anywhere.

It will probably be your thermostat that is jammed open , try fitting a new one , the thermostat is located in the housing on the side of the engine usually just above the gearbox , trace the top radiator hose to the engine and you should be able to find where the thermostat is ,
