The single item that is common to all the symptoms is the BSM ( Body Security Module ) behind the rear seat back or cab panel ( depending if it is a std cab or supercab / supercrew ).

There are 4 fuses for the BSM, these are fuses # 6, 18, 40, 107 and 102.
Start by checking these fuses with a meter on both sides of the back with the little pin, using a known good ground ( there is one to the lower right hand corner of the fuse panel ).

The next thing I would check is the ground to the BSM itself, this is behind the rear seat back ( if a supercab / supercrew ) cab configuration.

removing the seat back looks hard, but it is really a 25 min job the first time.

This is the location for releasing the clips. Took me a few trys to get the latch released the 1st time, but the next one went easy. Once the clip is released, stick a 2x4 covered in a sock2005 Ford F150 4x4 5.4 Problem with the Ford F-150 - sscullys_162.jpgback, so it does not relatch itself when you are doing the other side.

This is the angle that you are shooting for, you can see there is a target that you are feeling for.

Once you have the seat back out, getting the carpet off the back wall is easy. The BSM is the hump in the back wall covering, follow the ground wire to the lug, and make sure it is connected good, and it not broken at the connector on the BSM ( give it a slight tug ).

Hope it is one of the fuses, and you do not have to go digging in the back.

The symptoms by themselves have different solutions, I took the common item, so it could be a case of you really do have multiple problems. The autolamp one would be a burn pin at the connector if they are different issues, if the fuses and ground check good, while you have the seat back off, pull the connector and look at it, to see if the pins are burnt.

Why do I have no auto night headlights, no electronic mirror adjustments and no auto locks. They all quit on my 3/96 4.6L single cab f150 lariat, why?

after all fuses and relays verified are working it sounds like you have keyless entry on the door panel with a keypad and in either case theres a driver door module inside the door panel this may have gone or the fuse for that has blown I'm ssuming that you have the owners manual with the diagrams if not ford owners .com register then download your manual then go to roadside emergencies and the fuse and power distribution box diagrams are there also this could be you headlight switch so if the fuses are all good then lookat the door module on the drivers side next to the speaker or the headlight switch do the windows work also check the master window switch this is because all components have some borrowed power from other wire circuits so look carefully at all of these even a corroded wire or contact can cause havoc on other systems clean al and a light dab or spray of wd40 will help you good luck Stephen

Keyless remotes not working

Try reprogramming the remotes. Here are the instructions for the procedure. Hope it helps. Cobra!
Programming NOTE: All keyless entry remote transmitters (15K601) must be programmed at the same time.
NOTE: To program (or reprogram) the keyless entry remote transmitters into the RAP module, perform the following steps:
  1. Make sure that the anti-theft system is not armed or triggered.
  1. Turn the ignition switch (11572) from OFF to RUN eight times within ten seconds, ending in RUN. If the RAP module has successfully entered program mode, it will lock and then unlock all doors.
  1. Within 20 seconds, press any button on a keyless entry remote transmitter, and the doors will lock and then unlock to confirm that each keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed. Repeat this step for each transmitter.
  1. If the door locks do not respond for any keyless entry remote transmitter, wait several seconds and press the button again. If the door locks still fail to respond, refer to Inspection and Verification.
  1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position, or wait up to 20 seconds after step 2, to exit program mode. If a keyless entry remote transmitter has been programmed (or reprogrammed), the RAP module will lock and unlock all doors one last time to confirm.

How do I reprogram the keyless entry keypad?

You can found the code on F-150 up under the dash. There is a sticker on a grey box. That is the code that you need to open the door. You can then use that code to program your own 5 digit code that you will remember.

For program your keyless pad (clic image), check the procedure in your 2006 Ford F-150 Owners Manual moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.png(page 108 and next).


Remember rated this help, good luck.
