I had one of these trucks many years ago. On mine, I had an electrical short on the drivers side wiring harness. Check the 10 gauge red wires that come from the battery. This truck also has fusable links. I used one of those simple light testers with a sharp point to push through the insulation.

F150 2005 trailer lights are all out


Its a fairly complicated system. There are various fuses and relays for each circuit.
There is a right and left turn relay in the battery junction box. There's a relay for parking lights in the other box in the engine compartment. And so on.
If nothing works, I would check the ground first. You may need a shop manual to get all of the wiring diagrams.

The cruise control on my 2005 grand am does not work. I checked for 12 vdc on the cruise control module (pin #F on the plug connector) but no volts. The fuses are good and I get power to pin A, B, & C...


Hi, you should have battery voltage at pin F when the key is on. Since you have power thru the clockspring, the problem has to be between the interior fuse box and the control module.The wire passes thru the fuse box under the hood. What I would do is trace the brown wire back to the fuse box and see if it has power coming into the box. If not, then I would trace it to the connector or *********** at the firewall. Sometimes a wire will be broken inside the insulation.

1982 F150 where are the fuse. Gas gauge not working just quit.


The fuse box is located up under the dash on the drivers side. The power regulator that controls the gas gauge is located on the back of the instrument panel mounted to the flexable circuit board. There isnt really a single fuse that controls the gas gauge. My guess(only a guess) is that your gauge is broken.

2002 ford f150 clicks but will not start. just changed alternator is it the starter?


Sounds like a low battery, did you put a battery charger on after changing the alternator ? Check the DC voltage on the battery at rest, anything less than 12/5 VDC is a discharged battery. At less than 124 VDC, sulfation can start to happen. If this goes on long enough, the sulfation can impede the alternators ability to charge the battery, and cause damage to the alternator.

I have a 1997 f150 that won't start, just clicks. Tested the battery and cleaned the battery posts still nothing.


Check cable for corrosion or signs of heat.Check voltage to starter. Most likley a starter but don't overlook the basics like is the engine seized or is there a loose/bad connector to engine ground.

Will not Start


Strap VOM across battery and measure VDC. Keep Eye on VDC as someone attempts to start car. If Volts drop to near 0, battery is toastado.

Otherwise, check ignition relay and starter solenoid. Check any large fuses in the underhood fuse compartment.
