Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab

1 Answer

97 f150 4.6L I changed out the heater core in which case I had to take the interior appart. After putting everything back together and connecting the battery up the accessory relay was clicking, had interior lights and dash lights,no head lights, but wouldn't try to start. Took the battery back off and checked the grounds, reconnected. Flasher relay clicking, no interior lights, dash or headlights. Started again, checked ignition, now the stearing no longer locks, put back together. Now still no lights, dash or headlights, and interior lamp relay and battery savor relay clicking. Still wont try to turn over.

Hope you can read that? Check the fuses for those relays, the two on the right. Not only check the fuses, use a test lite to check for voltage on the fuse circuit. Check the four fuses on the left, also, some are hot all the time, some go hot with the key on.
The top two wires at relay is the load side. The bottom two wires are on the control side of relay. The control side needs voltage and ground. Your gem module controls ground. Sometimes when battery voltage is lost, some modules may need to be reprogrammed? I don't have that info. In my opinion, clicking is either intermittent voltage or ground. Right now I'm thinking ground, controlled by the gem model. I could be wrong?

SOURCE: 95 F150 wont crank

the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

SOURCE: battery saver relay is on and do not start

One it could be the battery but if your radio and stuff works then it is not the case, the clicking is your starter trying to turn over, so that could be it as well.

There is also a box inside the radio compartment area where the radio mounts that has the door open / key in ignition alarm. If someone unplugged this to disable the annoying ding ding ding; it will also disable the wipers. I wouldn't want to tell on myself but I guess I just did.

How do I get to the heater core on a 250 ford econoline


In order to change the heater core on most trucks you have to remove the Air Handling Unit (evaporator case) from under the dash. In most cases you have to remove the entire dash in order to get the case out. (the case is the big black thing under the instrument panel, mostly on the passenger side.) Im order to get the case out you have to remove the nuts from the bolts that go through the fire wall. Next you have to pump down the AC system and unhook the evap. core at the TXV (near firewall). The next step is to remove the heater core lines at the firewall. (ALL 3 of these are done in the engine caompartment.) Now is where you would remove the instrument panel, and the AC system duct work. After all that you should be able to get the Air Handling Unit out. once the caseis out you have to take out the screws that hold the center seam together, and whatever else may be in the way (actuator linkages, wireharnesses, etc, etc.) Once you have "split" the case you should simply be able to pull the heater core out and put in the new. Reverse the process to put back together. Hope this helps.

I replaced heater core on 97 ford f150 need map on how everthing goes back together


If it is necessary to remove the heater assembly, the cooling system must be drained before removing the heater core.
When a heater core leaks, a new heater core is installed or the old one repaired.
Heater Housing
  • The heater housing is usually under the dash and must be removed to gain access to the heater core.
  • Procedures for replacing the heater core vary with the year, make, and model of car. It threfore necessary to consult the manufacturer's repair manuals for the proper procedure for replacement.
f74-01.gif The heater housing is disassembled to get to the heater core. Heater Core
  • Remove the access panels(s) or the split heater/air conditioning case to gain acess to the heater core.
  • Remove the heater coolant hoses.
  • Remove the cable and/or vacuum control lines (if equipped).
  • Remove the heater core securing brackets and/or clamps.
  • Lift the core from the case. Do not use force. Take care not to damage the fins of the heater core when removing.
  • To reinstall the heater core, reverse the removal steps.
When the heater core leaks and must be repaired or replaced, it is a very difficult and time-consuming job primarily because of the core's location deep within the firewall of the car. For this reason always leak test a replacement heater core before installation.

Heater core leaks! temp in car interior fluctuates; HELP!


yup, its running to that point before it dripps off. you can bypass the heater core to stop the leaking, but you won't have heat. take the two heater core hoses ( two hoses connected at the fire wall on passenger side) and connect them together. you will need a fitting to connect them with.
