FORD F150 2004 FX4

The overdrive light in the dash doesn't light up when I push the overdrive button on.I think the transmission is not shifting into overdrive because my gas mileage has decreased by 3.5miles to the gallon on the highway(was 17.5mi now 14.0mi) I'm thinking maybe the overdrive button is bad or the wires are disconnected.I would appreciate any advice,Thanks

    First,should I start at the O.D button and work my way to the light? How do you get at the overdrive button on the console shift?Plus is this the problem with the mileage or something else

Hi there , if the transmission is not shifting into overdrive, then the overdrive fuse had probably blown.

The fuse should be : Fuse # 29 5A Transmission overdrive control switch.

Check the fuse, and if the fuse is fine, check the overdrive wirings on the steering column.

Do not forget to leave me feedback on this, that is important for us.

Thanks.

Check uder the truck and make sure that the wires don't have any build up on or aroung them this could cause your problem. also make sure your transmission fluid level is good. and check the fuses under the hood of the truck there should be a tranmission fuse of some sort.

hope this helped
please rate well

Try to pull ur plugs and inspect for carbon build up on any of the plugs... If you find one or two, clean them up good, or replace them & test drive it... it will solve ur problem...

There is a black power cable with two leads for the power for the camera but I don't have in the instructions what to do with it


This is how to hook up the Pyle PLCM7300BT:
On the license plate camera, plug the black cable provided with 2-wires inside (one red and one black) to its counterpart on the camera. On the open end of this black cable, strip and connect the black wire to the car/truck metal body part.
Connect the red wire from the camera and the green wire from the monitor (part of the big black cable from the monitor) to the power wire to the back-up lamp socket.
Connect the Red wire from the monitor to a switched terminal on the fuse box so that it would only have power when you have the ignition key on.
The rest of the wiring is simple and common sense.
To operate, turn on the ignition of you car/truck and put it on reverse you should see the camera view. Put the car/truck on Park, the monitor screen should go back, if not, push the power button once.
To set up the blue tooth: Push the power button on the monitor so that you can see the blue screen and "no Input". Put your phone on discoverable mode and push scan for device. AT the same time push the "pair" button on the monitor.

I did all the figuring out on the bench using a 12 VDC power supplies and contact switches to make sure I understood how it worked. Once installed on my 1988 Suburban, it worked as expected.

The only problem I had to patch the long green wire (reverse car) so that it reached the back-up light socket.

Let me know if you still have problems. Email me at wayne.tan@wdc.com

I lost thr driver's instrument display on my holden captiva LX. All the fuses OK. What needs to check?


The switch for your dash lights is probably bad. (The rotary dial to adjust dim to bright) can you still turn on the interior lights with the dial? it will "click" when in the fully bright mode and turn on the interior lights. If so, put a dark towel over the dash to mask the interior lights and look to see if the dash lights are on. If they are on, you've found the problem. (very common) Hope this helps

Hold light blinking


try having the vehicle speed sensor checked out. They are not very expensive and could be causing your transmission to not shift with the increasing vehicle speed.

I cant get a picture with my UV7i with or without the brake on


Its very simple splice the power wire "constant power" Red wire.

Next attatch the yellow parking switch wire to the constant power.

wallah... You can now watch movies on your in dash while driving! The deck thinks the brake is engaged

Alot easier then codes and pressing brake pedals and all that jive. They wont do it if your get it installed somewere so you have to do it yourself, its very easy
