There is a memmory wire on the back of the radio which is usually yellow this needs to go to a constant source of power
red wire (power) goes to accessories black to ground
you need a test light to find constant source power wire in truck and to find an accessory line wire for red this should fix problem and dont forget reset button on radio after you done the wire fix

98 Ford F150 w/4.6l Wont start. Hear fuel pump click. Have pressure on fuel rail. Pulled #1 plug from head and plugged back into wire. Grounded plug and cranked. No spark. Changed wires 4 and 7 four days...

have diagnostic codes checked to see if you have a cam or crank sensor fault. make sure fuel pressure is at the required pressure, just testing to see if you have fuel at the valve is not enough. replace all spark plug wires. if you replaced two then all are just as old and even when they "look good" does not qualify as "they are good". Replace coil pack. start up drive away happy

2001 f150 wont start change plugs and wires and now wont fire and wires are in correct order. can you help

Check your ignition fuse # 30, in the inside fuse box all the way on the right second from the bottom, check your coil and crank position sensor, these are responsible for spark, the crank sensor is bolted with 2 bolts next to the lower engine pulley, this is a magnetic pick up that triggers spark from the coil, if the crank sensor is good and you have no spark then the coil could be bad. Hope this helps, let me know.

Truck dvd player concept/pronto

Does it possibly have a reset button you could press with a paperclip? If not, try disconnecting the constant power wire for ....let's say an hour, and hooking it back up.
